-----------------------------

Here's an interesting piece from Car and Driver about the demise of the small pickup truck. As has been frequently questioned Ford ended production of its Ranger in the US last year. It appears the company is still considering the viability of a small truck, but they are considering something with less overlap to the F-150. Their thinking is that it needs to be positioned somewhere in the range of a 1000 lb. payload and the capability of towing up to 3000 lbs. And, of course, it will need to have significantly better fuel economy. Additional details are available with the link below.
