I had looked at trucks back then to replace my old pos bronco II, only problem I had was the GM seats were designed by a Nazi chiropractor and you were forced upright and square. It never made sense to me why not just use the frame with a decent load rating for all trucks, but the old internet was not so helpful and dealerships never give any info. So that was the closest I could find to actual info back then.

I used to read ramforumz a LOT when I was researching my truck and have read a few other FCA background sites. Ramforumz had the advantage of a couple factory guys posting or confirming things when they could but I haven't been on as much. Depressing to read about new stuff not on mine.

I missed it earlier today, Ford confirmed the F-150 diesel but it does not appear to be the Jag/Land Rover engine.

From Ford's press release:

'Full-size diesel truck fans have reason to celebrate this year as Ford*– America’s truck sales leader*– delivers the first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway rating, a best-in-class 11,400 pounds of towing capacity and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity, plus best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft.*of torque. The very same Ford powertrain team behind the 6.7-liter Power Stroke for Super Duty trucks since 2011 designed and engineered this all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine to the specific needs of North American F-150 customers who tow and haul frequently.

Arriving this spring, F-150 with 3.0-liter Power Stroke engine provides best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque – and makes for a sixth engine choice for F-150 customers.

And now for the Ford Ranger return:

Built Ford Tough: Ford answers the call from truck customers looking for an affordable, rugged, and maneuverable midsize pickup that’s Built Ford Tough; torture-tested alongside Ford F-150 trucks, Ranger quality starts with a rugged high-strength steel frame backbone, proven Ford-built 2.3-liter EcoBoost*engine and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ready for adventure with innovative technology: New features make driving easier and more fun, both on- and off-road; available FX4 Off-Road Package adds protective skid plates, upgraded tires, off-road-tuned shocks and suspension, while Terrain Management System*and Trail Control*help navigate challenging conditions; a suite of innovative technologies includes standard Automatic Emergency Braking to help avoid collisions.

Ranger comes in entry-level XL, mid-level XLT and high-level Lariat trim series with available Chrome and Sport appearance and FX Off-Road packages, and in SuperCab or SuperCrew*cab configurations.

Autoweak article on the Ram: http://autoweek.com/article/detroit-...roit-auto-show

E-assist on the Hemi adding 130lb/ft of torque! It looks MUCH better without the camo and with a proper set of wheels on it.

Wow, that dash and Tesla like center screen is insane.

And FINALLY hill descent controls, hate mine locking automatically and throwing the revs through the roof, and a true locker in the rear axle.

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/01/15/...-hybrid-45834/ has even more great pictures by can't seem to get them to load to save.

Here come the Ram pictures, the Limited range is insane as a truck

USB-C factory and finally moved the CD player out of the center console bin. Or even worse, under the center seat in the bench seat model.

To field's point though, the current Chevy Colorado/S10 is within one inch of a 1999 Silverado in all dimensions (per Motor Trend, I've never done the research myself). This is true of almost every type of car though - a modern hatchback will dwarf one of 20 years ago.

And just b/c I wanted to provide some numbers to what I was getting at, the new Ranger wheel base is nearly 2 feet longer than the Little Rangers that I grew up with.
