I asked that question several years back, and I was told that they wouldn't pass the U.S.safety regulations... and someone else said that Ford was afraid of losing F-150 sales to a 4 door Ranger.
To me, neither answer seemed satisfactory...

And, here we are...

I pulled out some data for my old 2004 Ranger (sadly gone bawl ...) and the major dimensions were within fractions of an inch the same as this new Maverick.

According to articles I've read/videos I've watched the new Maverick is only about 4 inches longer than the '98-'11 Ranger. That's hardly what I'd call "huge" in comparison. Width and height aside.

Frankly, the main problem I have with the Maverick is, “Why?”.. I mean what’s the point. If they were going to make a small truck, why didn’t they just make the Ranger that.


I think they're trying to attract people outside of the BOF market. Think the person who doesn't want the ride quality and (perceived) fuel economy penalties. The person who really "doesn't like trucks" but is getting tired of waiting 3 hours to rent the Home Depot truck every Saturday.

Keeping the Ranger BOF keeps it more in line with the people who "don't want a sedan with a bed, dammit." Don't tell me for a second people wouldn't bemoan how the Ranger got p*ssified if they'd made this thing the new one.

I know Ford is quasi-trying to make compare this thing to it's truck offerings, but I think it makes more sense if you don't try to do that. If you think this thing isn't manly enough for truck status, buy an F-150. Think the F-150 is too big? Buy the Ranger. Think the Ranger is too big? Keep dreaming, the tiny BOF truck market is gone. And believe me, I hear ya. I've been searching the listings for a clean S-10 that isn't ridiculously priced for a few years now.
