Yes, let's blast Ford for being financially responsible and cutting off a product that was selling bad.

Reminds me, when will they axe Lincoln already?

The Ranger is a nice concept, a small truck, but if you really need a truck that badly rent a F150 for the days you do and otherwise get a car that makes more sense.

Hell, a CTS Wagon seems like a better choice for those that like to haul things, or a Jetta TDI Wagon for those that want some fuel efficiency.

I get small trucks, but just because I understand the need doesn't mean there is enough of one in our market to bring one over or to retool production lines to make one here.

Face it, Ford is just being smart in cutting off vestigial products.

You can agree or disagree, that's fine; Ford has guys that study the markets and decide what makes more sense and what doesn't. Not saying they are infallible but by killing off the Ranger and Panther they did the right thing. Time to move on with the times.
