Ford Ranger production will end in 2009

Ford announced that the St. Paul, Minnesota plant will be closed at the end of 2009. This means that the life of the Ranger pickup truck will come to an end in 2009.

Ranger is being produced for nearly 15 years and this year sales drop with 24% compared to the 2006 when Ford sold 92,000 units.

The 2007 Ranger is available in XL, STX, XLT, SPORT, FX4 Off-Road and FX4 Level II trims, in regular-cab and in two- and four-door SuperCab configurations. Ranger offers three engine choices: a 2.3-liter, inline four-cylinder (I-4) and two V-6 engines.


I think it’s about time Ford put this horse out of its misery. Ford amazes me sometimes. They have a perfectly workable machine and they just sit on it until it’s skin and bones. This truck should have been replaced at least 10 years ago. I heard, however, that tests are currently under way in the "Southern Hemisphere" on a small Ford truck. No doubt we’ll be hearing more before this month is concluded.
