      I think you're wrong about Ford changing the look and design of the truck. Ford killed the Ranger because it was cutting into F150 sales after all.

      Yes
      Im trying to find a cap to get for mine
      But no one makes one yet that is available.
      Iv only seen running boards so far
      I would love to level it because I have a set of nitos and rims from my 04 150 that would fit.
      But the dealer is telling me it would void the warranty.....
      Any idea if that's a fact?
      I guess patients is a must.

      I do mention that GM offers a couple different engine options in the video, but you're right about me forgetting the 2.7L 4 cylinder from Toyota. I didn't realize they were still putting that motor in some of the Tacomas. Glad they kept it around!

      No there is another option that most will forget to mention. Nissan Frontier Pro 4X with premium package. In that, you get great leather seats with heat, power 8 way with power recline (ford doen't have that), a better center stack with bigger buttons (not the god awful Fusion stack with smallish buttons etc.. not truck like) dual climate control zones, sunroof, NAV, BT, 10 speaker rockford fosgate with sub (Ranger XLT here has the crap 6 speaker sony HU) Strong VQ40 24 valve DOHC that pretty much keeps up with the little 2.3 but does it with zero lag, and will run 300K miles (proven) Dana 44 locker, descent control, 31 inch all terrain, skid plates, heated mirrors, back up camera with sonar sensors, spray bed liner with utility track (optional on XLT) 4X4 HI/LO. This is just as capable as the new ranger with allot more features standard. It has a truck like ride, more planted and not the car like bouncy back/forth like the Ranger. Back seat folds flat (ranger does not) power windows angled up perfect and ergonomic, Ranger is not, recess flat and behind. All I got to say is test drive the XLT for 38K and then a loaded Pro 4X. The Nissan destroys it. And I got mine for 36500 out the door, tax title etc.. And I'm rocking a full stereo system with sub, sunroof, leather etc.. while the Ford gives you cloth to sit on with manual recline, crap ergonomics, no sunroof for 5K Plus more. Now the fully loaded lariat does offer as much luxury as a loaded Pro 4X. But then your talking about a MSRP that is over 10K more. That's insane and will be a very hard sell once they build inventory on the lots. I'll also add I owned a T6 Ranger overseas with the 3.2 inline 5 cylinder diesel. And loved it. So I do know a bit about the Ranger and I'm not just talking out of my ass. Had they put the 3.2 I would have bought it in the states. But they didn't. And the price points don't make any sense. Even more then a loaded offroad tacoma limited. At least in Lariat trim you get all the nice stuff. But the XLT pretty much priced at fully loaded on the competition. And that just a rip off. The XLT is the worst value IMO. Actually, with the way Ford messed up the bundling I would only consider the XL. At least that one is more inline with the competition.

      Boss 302, 2 opinions given here and you presume HiPlains1 “ purposefully leaving out”? You offer no facts other than aging design. Smart people pay for value and not styling alone. Then you claim nobody cares about his opinion. Both opinions have value! Your Presumptions show a lack of intelligence.
      Previous owner of a Ford Ranger 91 4.0. Excellent vehicle with zero issues and sold with high mileage.
      Current 07 Frontier 4.0 and 08 Pathfinder 5.6 owner, both over 100,000 with zero issues.
      I drive my vehicles with a purpose and not particularly easy. ITALIAN TUNES regularly. Both my Nissans take the same oil and air filters which i find a plus.
      Personally i find the value comparison opinion carrying more weight than the mechanical problems opinion. Mechanics tend to be BRAND SPECIFIC with little experience outside their limited brand.

      @HiPlains1 the thing you are purposely leaving out is the fact that the Nissan frontier has been unchanged since 2006... Anyone who pays what Nissan is charging for them is extremely unintelligent. Everything you have said is pure opinion and no facts. Nobody cares about your opinion. Just letting you know...

      Lynx Star Automotive In reply to HiPlains1

      HiPlains1 Heh, if you say so bud. Did I mention I work on cars for a living? Yeah, 16 years going strong now.

      Did I also mention I've done timing chain modules on Nissnault 4.0's as recent as 2015MY? Yeah, they like to get this harmonic ringing sound. Really poor design, not cheap either. 1800 repair. Nissnault will tell you to 🖕🏽off too if you are past 50k miles.

      The transmissions? Do not even get me started. One of the worst units in the industry. The cooler failure is old news; back when dinosaurs ruled the earth. They finally figured that one out, but the valve bodies? Still fail. Tail housing seals? Still fail. Filters get plugged up prematurely, and the fluid? You would think there is a broiler built into the unit with how it scorches the fluid. Also, you will be lucky to get past 180k miles on one without a major rebuild. Which brings me to the next biggest issue they suffer from: housing wear. Making them practically useless. The housing wears out, making rebuilds an arduous, fruitless endeavor.

      Yeah, push your snake oil on someone else friend. I have been doing this for waaaaay too long now. Nissan has been a habitual pusher of junk for a better part of two decades now. The industry is better without them.

    • HiPlains1
      HiPlains1 In reply to HiPlains1

      @Lynx Star Automotive Nice try. The early issues of the VQ are long gone. Yes there was the ATI leak in the radiator, the timing chain, and even the fuel sending sensor would go out. By 2010 all of that was resolved. Yes I agree it took Nissan way too long. But at this point its rated number one for reliability in mid size based on maintenance and customer feedback. Renault does make some crap but the VQ 24 valve DOHC and power train has won many awards. And there are many who put 300K miles on these. The chassis is also strong using a Titan chopped Ladder construction. The 5 speed has normal behaviors with smooth shift points. Its a beautiful tune. Your crazy thinking this is a bad transmission. Its heavy duty and lasts forever. Now you want to poke fun just look at the crappy ass Tacoma aksison active learning transmission that gear searches, shifts hard, and early shifts that it gutless. Or GM's that shifts early and is prone to shudder with Torque convertor failures. The Nissan 5 speed OD has NONE OF THAT.

      As for your MSRP comparison PURE FUD. XLT 4X4 will generally run closer to 38K and that does not have upgraded leather, spray bed liner, or upgraded stereo or even a sunroof. The Frontier pro 4X comes with all that standard. To get to the level of the Pro 4X premium you looking at 45K lariat. Anyone who says that Ranger are competitive MSRP on the upper trim levels are smoking crack. With your example I would have to settle for the 2WD model without rear locker just to get the price down to my loaded Pro 4X. Screw that. I just recently went through the motions and priced everything out and also worked out the best deals I could involving many dealerships. What I found is the Lariat will generally cost 5K more then Tacoma offroad (loaded) or the GM Colorado Z71 (Loaded). When comparing the Lariat to the a loaded Frontier pro 4X with the premium package the difference is 10K more. Now its not my fault that Ford bundles in such a way that you are forced to buy into a ton of electronic crap just to get a nice stereo or leather. The bundling is a hot mess. Please quit spilling FUD about the issues with the Frontier from 10 years past. Look up the stats. Don't get too butthurt fella. Tundra and Frontier are now the top two for reliability. Its way too early to know how the Ranger will fair for longevity. No body can predict that. But the Nissan is a different matter. It has 10 years of proven reliability under its belt. And the Ranger's MSRP is way too high for the segment. Right now with low capacities with Ford fanboys with pent up demands you might find some fools to pay MSRP or even more. But that is not going to last. You better believe it.

      Nissnault is French crap. The VQ engine is also a boat anchor. Atrocious powertrain. One of the worst transmissions in the industry, and the VQ has known issues with oil consumption and timing chains. Going on a decade now. The Ranger Lariat starts at 32k is similarly equipped, and looks loads better than the Nissnault. Do not be a typical consumer who walks into the local dealer with your pants down and pays whatever they are asking.

      It has less to do with laziness and more to do with the overall quality of the Ranger and how it stacks up against its competition. Most of the Ranger's competitors have a damped tailgate and most consumers like that feature so it's worth mentioning in the review. Thanks for watching!
