Chevy fan boys are salty the Blazer came back as a station wagon
Jeep fan boys "hurr durr it has IFS" as if that matters to 99 percent of Jeep owners.
They took everything that sucks about the Jeep Wrangler and fixed it.
I don't know about a Wrangler, but when I drove across the state on Tuesday, my Gladiator drove great at 90mph. I never had an old Wrangler, but I'm told they sucked on the highway. This thing drives pretty well.
It even gets 25mph at 75mph...can't believe it. I'm told a bunch of changes were made last year to make it drive better. I really don't have any complaints except the wind noise from the mirrors is ridiculous.
Still, it seems Ford is set to pop next year. What I was told about the coming diesel-electric F-150, with a VW TDI, was pretty cool.
Talking about things like, being able to stow the doors in the trunk for example.
35 inch tire package not being tied to the highest trim level. Stuff like that.
2021 Ford Bronco receives 230,000 reservations, report says
- 2021 Ford Bronco 4-Door
- Image Credit: Ford
Ford recently confirmed motorists who haven't reserved their 2021 Bronco yet will need to wait until 2022 to take delivery. Although it hasn't published the number of reservations it has received, an enthusiast forum keeping track of where and how customers are buying the off-roader pegs the number at nearly a quarter of a million.
I have a white regular cab 4X4 XL as a work truck (I am Health and Safety, so no, I do not need an F-350).friend of mine said something about how she just bought a hybrid Volvo and that got me thinking about hybrid pickups...
so I went looking without any luck.
however there is a 4-cyl turbo Ford Ranger and it doesn't look half bad.
anyone have any opinions there?

How many MPG are you getting on the highway? That would be my biggest selling point. My Tacoma gets about 21, so if it's a push I don't see the need.I have a white regular cab 4X4 XL as a work truck (I am Health and Safety, so no, I do not need an F-350).
Great truck. I am really surprised at how much I like it.
Decent space, not too big, and definitely not too small. Seats are nicely shaped and comfortable. Legs are not straight out like in a Tacoma. Layout inside is intuitive and sensible. Wiper stalk is on the right side of the steering wheel, which seems wrong to me as it is on the left in my explorer and Taurus and was in my old F-150. a 3 position intermittent control seems antiquated as well, but...it works. I Like how the fan goes to full high when you crank the temp to full hot or full cold.
Great visibility to the front and sides. I removed the rear head rests and visibility to the rear is now decent as well. No one will ever sit back there in my company truck, but if it was mine it would be different.
Great power, I have not found a need yet for more power. I do not, at least yet, tow anything, nor do I drag race with the company "sue me stickers" on the doors.
Great ride and handling. really surprised at how well it rides.
I have not really checked the mileage yet as I am just under 1,000 miles, and I am not paying. I will break it in some more then start checking mileage.
I would definitely buy one. A 4 door with more options, but I like it. A lot.

But I will definitely consider it for my next purchase when I really need to make the change.
thanks man! I apprectiate the input!2 things
1) I haven't checked the mileage because I don't pay for gas and because it still only has just over 700 miles. Mileage now will not be representative of mileage once broken in.
2) I do not do much interstate driving for any real distance in my company truck, almost all mixed.
