I was actually looking for a new Ranger but wasn't aware that they had stopped making them last year.
I thought they were still in production till this summer.
So I was looking at 5 liter STX & XLT F-150's instead, but I was not really happy with the idea of getting a truck that big, and thirsty.
The wife was pushing me to get a new car or truck to replace my 07 Ranger (115,000miles) just to play it safe because she wants us to retire this year.
If it were up to me I would have kept the 07 at least another couple of years.
If for no other reason than to see if I could beat the 302,853miles I put on the 01 Ranger it replaced.
It BTW was still running with no rust at all on it when the Kidney Fund drove it away.
So this year she got a new 2012 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid and I was 'supposed' to get a new Ranger.
But this Focus was just too much like the 'dream' Focus I built on the Ford web site to pass up.
Just wish it had come with the mud flaps instead of a moonroof, but those can be put on any time and I can get used to the glass roof.
BTW what with the badge's?
