Seems like this Ranger only has the powerplant going for it. Everything else is just "okay." Makes sense since it isn't technically all new anymore.

TFL Truck did a nice comparo with an equivalently built Tacoma off-road and the Ranger did pretty darn good, probably with a lot more comfort and definitely with a better powerplant. Without the manual trans or ECT PWR pressed in all the time, that Tacoma v6 sucks.

Default Ranger anyone?

Anyone getting the itch for the new to us Ranger? I've been looking, and trying NOT to pull the trigger, until the truly new one comes out. Hoping for at least the 2.7 in it. I see now they're offering a "black appearance" package to it, that sorta tickled my fancy. It comes with black painted aluminum wheels, don't like, and the machined and black "Raptor like" wheels can't be had with that package yet.
I quickly looked at two of them during a drive thru at my dealer the other day. Both of them Screws XLT in that Sabre color. Don't care for that color. One an FX4.
First impression, it's bigger than my present Ranger for sure.
Sorta glad they aren't offering Ruby Red so far, I think that might get me out of my 150.

I've seen a few of them around town. Not impressed but then I never liked the Ranger any way. Too small for me.

I tend to agree to a point. Those boxes are pretty short, not even sure about between the wheelwells if there's enough to lay a sheet of plywood flat.

It's definitely different.

I seem to build one of these once a week. That magnetic was the color I kept going to so I could have it monochrome in an XLT. Looks like everything but Red is that way with the "black appearance" package.

In general orange/copper is my favorite color
