It's nice to see a car what was thought to be about appealing as a refrigerator survive for so long and find an owner who will take care of it and not just drive it into the ground. Being a car guy we are always expected to have something cool like Miata (which I do have) but I also have my Grand Parents 2003 Cadillac Deville. A car I loathed when they bought it new and always loathed driving it but now almost 20 years later I dearly love it for the memories and for what it is. I think that's what it is for a car guy being irrational about a vehicle whether it be a Corvette or a Summit. It doesn't bother me when my friends give me a hard time because honestly I think we all know you get just a much flack for something cool or plebeian.

Thank you for posting this! I own an 2011 SuperCab 4x4 Ranger which I love dearly. I actually have been through 2 daily drivers to keep the miles off this truck as I really want it to live forever. I know with safety standards and fuel economy standards increasing the sun has set on trucks the "Old Ranger" size. I know there is a lot of talk of the new Maverick being a return true compact truck but I still wonder if even be bigger than the 1998-2011 Ranger. Thank you for diving through the spec sheets on both models and comparing the demensions. I have a double car garage with a 16x7 door I know my Ranger fits next to my Buick LeSabre but your specs confirm for me that the "New" Ranger will be 4 inches closer so I'd have to be careful opening the doors. Either way I'll keep my 2011 it does everything I need it to do and I have never needed "more truck" for any of my home projects.
