I skipped out on getting a Ranger in order to wait on the Bronco. Am I regretting that decision? No.

For what it's worth, I may try to find myself a 2012 Ranger to tinker with while I wait for the Bronco rollout. These new Rangers are literally the size of a 2012 F150. I know it's due to regulations, but I really think the world wants a smaller workhorse type truck.

Hell, I'd event take a remake of the El Camino or Ranchero at this point, just to get a small size pick-up.
I was hoping the maverick would be more of a ute ranchero and for real the new rangers are the exact same size on the outside as my 96 bronco. Its a crying shame that something that size doesnt have a 2000lb payload. My 91 comanche does and it fits down tight trails.

I just don't see why they bother putting a bed on that thing at all if it's going to be basically nonexistent.

Looks as boring as the Bronco looks exciting. There is literally nothing exciting about it. But it will probably be very functional with good specs. Cafe and aerodynamics are killing the looks of these trucks.

Here is a document directly from Ford that shows the dimensions of a 2012 f150.

2012 f150 Regular cab 6.5 ft bed
Height - 74.8”
Width (excluding mirrors) - 79.2”
Length - 213.2”

2012 f150 supercrew 5.5 ft bed
Height - 75”
Width (excluding mirrors) - 79.2”
Length - 231.9”

https://www.ford.com/services/asset...&api_key=0d571406-82e4-2b65-cc885011-048eb263

2020 ranger supercrew
Height - 71.2”
Width (excluding mirrors) - 73.3”
Length - 210.8”

https://www.ford.com/trucks/ranger/models/ranger-xlt/

so a 2020 ranger supercrew is almost the size of a regular cab 2012 f150, but it’s not even close to the same size as a super crew f150

How can they tell it’s a ranger? If I saw that on the street my first guess would be the new Frontier. How to get excited for new generic midsize that looks like all it’s competition. Go with the Bronco people!

I’m pretty excited for this truck. I almost bought the current gen but wanted to wait for the bronco. The ranger will do whatever off-roading I would need it to do just as good as the bronco (I’m not a serious off-roader) plus it gives me the utility of a bed which I would use more than a removable top or doors, all at a significantly lower price.

Looks a little less like a Toyota and more like a Ford so far. (y)

Pretty close...

I've been saying the Ranger looks like Tacoma. The Ranger has always resembled a F150 for that model year. I'm hopeful that they make it like the F150.

I was behind a new Ranger tonight in my 2020 F-150, at a red light, and the Ranger is MUCH smaller width-wise than the F-150.

Oh, yeah, the 2020 F-150 is no doubt bigger. Keep your eyes peeled for one of those 11th gen F-150 (they're everywhere) on the road. It'll blow your mind how much smaller they are than today's full size model.

If your waiting for a 2023 ranger you may as will wait one more year for the 2024 bronco pickup. I would wait.
For people who can't wait and need a truck now, there are some deals on rangers out there.

That front end confirms (at least the headlight shape) the leaked render that came out Australia last year.

Id say it’s the whole thing. That detail above the rear wheel matches up perfectly. As does the shape of the rear door glass.

Boxier, big, truck-like front ends, please. Like RAM and GM...
Hahaha no. Chevy is getting CRUSHED due to the horrendous front end they put on the latest truck, and RAM is skating by on their interior alone. Ford sold 100,000 more F series trucks than GM sold Silverados and Sierras COMBINED, and Ford sold 260,000 more than RAM.

Ford - DON'T listen to this guy on the internet, keep doing what you're doing, it's clearly working.

My 2007 SCREW with a 6.5 bed is only 221 inches.
A 2007 Supercrew with the long bed is 236" long. I don't know what kind of weird metric ruler you're using.

I postponed my Bronco purchase until MY22 or 23 (painted modular top, some different interior and exterior color choices - maybe a nice Boxwood Green????). Seeing this, now thinking a 2022 Ranger may be the way to go. Presumably shares Bronco powertrain, suspension, GOAT modes. Likely a higher tow rating. Maybe it will be time to put my trusty old 2003 F-150 5.4L S'Crew out to pasture. . . :)
I had to look up "boxwood green". Oh man. That's a great color.
