There will be a lot of people here that have been waiting for someone to write a review type post on the Ranger like you have done. After my post about Hilux clutches and what sort of ute to buy ( thread ID 91306 ) I was rather confused about buying a Hilux, a Ranger, a manual or an auto but after spending equal amounts of time in a manual and auto Ranger today and then spending as much time in the showroom - my decision is made !
Ford Ranger XLT supercab 6 speed auto !
I don't know if it was my good haggling or just the desperation of the salesman to make a sale but when the difference between a manual SR5 Hilux extra cab and the new Ranger XLT supercab auto is only $2,000 this scenario becomes a no brainer ! What a great vehicle - heaps of get up and go, heaps of torque, smooth, quiet, comfortable and more goodies than the Hilux. As the supercab's aren't as common as the dual cab, the waiting time could be 4 to 5 months - plus side of this is I'm sure there will be more accessories available by arrival.
A big thanks to you Terry for taking the time out to post your thoughts on this great website about the Ranger and hope you have many years of trouble free motoring with your new Ranger when you eventually get it !!
