We bought a new 2011 Ranger Sport last year.
I think the problem with the Ranger is that it was just too long in the tooth. I loved the way it looked. What I did not like about it was that after 4K miles, it was still only getting around 16 MPG. The V6 in the Ranger Sport sucked gas like it was going out of style. We ended up trading it for a new Fusion. Last week, we traded that Fusion on a 2012 Focus SE Sport.
I would love to see the "World Ranger" brought to America, but from what I have read, that ain't going to happen anytime soon.
A "modern" Ranger would be awesome!
