Copy and paste this url, but replace the VIN with yours:

It works about half the time, but when it does it shows the window sticker with all options for that vehicle.
The window sticker wasn't the issue as the dealer did have it on their website... But I don't see gearing on the sticker... maybe I'm missing something?

Hoping that is with the front seats ALL the way back as my 5'5" 10 year old daughter will be quite cramped... Was hoping for storage under the seat.... And hopefully that bolt isn't to something important.
I mean I thought I was pretty clear

Build & Price is down right now (thanks, Bronco). But looking at the brochure, it looks like 3.73 is the only ratio you can get? Locker is an option, but there's no mention of any other ratio.

Thank you for the info..

Well there you have it @MaverickMan , 3.73 gear ratio. So with that said... I wasn't impressed with the 2.3l turbo.
Also spoke to a guy at work, he has a 2.3l Ranger as his work truck. Even he agrees, while cruising, that engine is just fine. But he said 0-40 it's limp.
That just keeps me looking towards the 2.7l.

No, it was the fastest truck in that comparison, but not the fastest sold.

The Colorado does 0-60 in 7.1 vs the Ranger's 7.6.
And Car and Driver instrument tested a Ranger doing 6.0 sec flat 0-60.

I’m about 20 years too old for 0-60 pissing contests, the point of my original post was that the word “weak” is an odd choice of vocabulary to describe a midsize 4 cyl in a pickup that can dip into the mid-14’s in the quarter mile.

Ha, love it! The stripper model 2x4 with 400lbs less equipment than the higher models really screams!

The 2.3 doesn't really spool until 2500-3000rpm. So it'd be sluggish pulling away from a stop until you get the revs up. Might be a good use case for that crawl gear if you're trying to tow or a pull a boat out of the lake...

Not sure if it's been posted anywhere but this is a good shot of the back seat and with one side folded down. Poster stated the front seats were slid all the way back.

Oooof. Looks like you might have to take out the headrests before you can fold down the seats.

(For reference, the wrangler headrests fold rearward to clear the front seat when the seat is folded down.)

Now that we know that the hood tie downs are "removable" can someone post a photo of the suv without it ... thanks in advance.

Yeah, I have the same thought as well for if that didn’t have a turbo- it’d just be a 2.3L 4 cyl haha.

Looking at the picture, you can just make out the bottom cushion, which appears to slide forward a bit because of the geometry of the fold... which looks like it would interfere with a headrest were it to fold forward.
