Considering how incentivized the F-150 has been, I bet it’s made the Ranger a hard sell, as good as it is. Smaller could work.

That’s always been my issue with “small trucks”. They’re damn near the price of a full size with less power and nearly as big as a full size truck.

Looks like a parts runner to me or even a tradesman type vehicle since some of those guys travel a lot for jobs.

We need a return of small trucks like they were in the 80's and 90's. S-10, Rangers..etc.

The current small trucks are as big, or bigger than the big trucks of those same decades.

Will be built on the Escape chassis.

that being said, it could be sort of fun, kind of excited to see how it looks and the specs.

Throw the 2.3T motor in there and have a little sport mini truck?

80s/90s S10s and Rangers reg cabs w/ a manual trans were gold

This. Quick look and the ranger appears almost as big as the F150

Current US Focus rides on the C1 chassis as did the Escape until 2020 when it shifted to the C2. The rest of the world has a Focus that rides on a C2. So yes, it's both the Escape AND Focus chassis.
