I think its a huge mistake. America is the land of the truck. I've been all over- The Netherlands, Italy, South Africa... and its a rarity to see any consumer trucks. There are some Subaru Baja style "trucks" but I hardly ever see Rangers, let alone F-150's. Maybe I've just been going to the wrong parts of Europe? They're a little bit more common in central America, but the US by FAR seems to be their biggest market.

Here in WA, small trucks like the Ranger are EVERYWHERE. Between the snow and constant rain, having a small, inexpensive 4wd spare vehicle is extremely common. I even almost bought an old ranger last winter since we got so much snow... I say bring the Ranger back to us, and bring us an AWD focus while you're at it!!
