    I built one on the Ford website ... XL base model with steel wheels but optioned with 4x4 and the 2.0 ecoboost... came out to just under $25,000.

    ya, it's been pretty obvious since the press release another F150 trim isn't important. Im not even trying to buy anything this year with the current cluster **** but it would still be nice to see pricing

    I like it. There is a clear market for this truck and the Ranger was always too close to the F150 in both price and MPG to appeal to me.

    This truck retains the utility benefits of a small truck while trading some capability for the advantages of a cross-over based chassis.

    I'd take mine as a Lariat with luxury package, FX4 and 4k tow packages.

    I agree, Doug. And it doesn't look like an econo truck. The interior doesn't blow me away, but it's decent. Outside, I'm impressed.

    I built one on the Ford site as well with just about the same sticker price. With the 2.0 EB and AWD.

    At this point I like the Ranger better than F-150, but would buy Super Duty over both.

    Someone tell me a Ford Maverick Adrenalin is coming.....2.3 Ecoboost and AWD. 350hp would be a riot and its right there in the parts bin.

    I certainly can't hate it, should be very useful to many. I like the affordable utilitarian approach, but think a longer bed would have been better. I've had several 90's rangers in longbed and they were all pretty handy for their size.

    Sooo.... if this sells well do they stop US Ranger sales and devote that space to Bronco?

    Ranger is too expensive for its performance. I'd rather get an F150 and pay a bit more for far more performance.

    You certainly have more seat time than I do, so I value your rankings. My opinion is heavily based on the rear seat in the Ranger being too small for my use, which is mainly a family (of 4) adventure/weekend warrior vehicle.

    A 250 Tremor is high on my list, as I’d like to have the 7.3L and 6.5’ bed.

    For my uses, a tow package Maverick would work about the same as a Ranger, while giving me significant benefits in MPG and ride quality over my F150. Hopefully that makes sense, because I may be talking in circles.

    Get one while you can. Big blocks might not be around much longer.

    The Edge ST drivetrain would be a logical fit. Though the 2.3L setup from the Lincoln Corsair should basically be a drop in fit.

    My first vehicle was a reg cab long bed Ranger. It was an awesome truck.

    I'm just hoping the Ranger gets the manual trans from the Bronco. My fantasy build on that platform is an Ext Cab Tremor Ranger with a 7 Spd Manual. A larger engine than the 2.3L would be nice, but not a necessity. Would like Torsen diffs front and rear.

    Get a Tremor Super Duty and never look back.

    Back seat space is not a huge concern to me. I mostly use that area for camera/computer gear.

    Wonder how much more engineering would be required to shove the 2.7L into it....

    Doesn't the 2.3 bolt right to the 2.0 transmissions? Seems the simple/logical way of dropping in a bit more power using the same drivetrain(and some extra cooling).

    Transmission probably wouldnt survive though. So a 2.7L plus its 8 speed into this Maverick, coupled with a torsen rear? That would be a hoot.

    Ford could one up the game with this truck by offering a street version.

    Aren't they all the same basic 8-spd at this point? The old 6F was actually a stronger trans.

    One interior color choice?
    Or did I miss something?
