    The vehicle that was SUPPOSED to replace the Ranger, the relatively brand spankin' new Fiesta, was instead bitch slapped by the little truck. HELLO? What kind of wrongheaded market researchers are you listening to, Ford?

    I too am surpsised the Ranger still had that many sales, that is a horrible vehicle, who is buying that thing? The Lincoln sales look pretty sad, but fitting since their product line is sad. Amazing how truck reliant Ford still is, 93,000 of their 136,000 sales were trucks/crossovers.
