Re: My 2015 XLT 3.2 4x4 Ranger is Falling Apart ($100 Reward

Honestly it sounds like it will end up costing more trying to DIY. Take it to a decent mechanic.

Re: Ranger 3.2 litre vs 2 litre tow test.

It says it in my PXII manual under the heading - Sports mode and manual shifting. It goes on to say - Note: When towing heavy loads or in hilly terrain, it is recommended that sport mode is selected. This will result in cooler transmission temperatures and additional engine braking. I only know beca...

Re: Ranger 3.2 litre vs 2 litre tow test.

That's correct but the Mazda you can also use the other ones listed in the table you posted. In the Ford you cannot.

By the way, PXII is WSS-M2C913-D.

Anyway, we are getting off topic.

I believe they are making 2 utes. One is a uni body very lightly based on the Santa Cruz concept which we will not get and the other is a ladder frame in the same vein as Ranger et al.

Re: 2021 engine's

If I'm not mistaken, which is highly likely, Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover run a twin turbo version of the 3.0 V6 used in the F150 with outputs up to 225kw and 700Nm. That sounds much tastier than our 3.2 and 2.0.

Re: 2021 engine's

Why would Ford use the VW diesel when they have their own 3.0 V6 as used in the F150 with very similar outputs? Especially since Ford are taking the lead in the development of this vehicle. It would be more likely that VW will take the Ford engine like Mazda did with the BT50.

Re: Black door handles

Under $150 from memory. Decent value in my opinion since you don't have to stuff around getting them painted or worry that your Reject Shop covers are going to fall off. Plus who knows, you might be able to sell your old genuine ones and recover some of the money.

From my understanding they are relatively cheap through Ford spare parts. I would just go genuine. They are easy to replace. From memory it is just one bolt per handle.

You answered your own question with your post. There are plenty of people around that are sceptical of the 2.0 for no other reason than it's capacity. So Ford are hedging their bets by providing both. I feel the next generation Ranger will have the 2.0 as the base engine and the 3.0 powerstroke as t...

I'm pretty sure they are the same offset (+55) as the rest of the range. The extra track width comes from the suspension changes.
