    I like Fords but the GMC Canyon / Chevy Colorado has the Ranger beat seven ways to Sunday. For the same price you get more truck including all the bells & whistles like power sliding rear window, rear window defrost, LED bed lighting, heated seats / steering wheel, catback exhaust, tow package, etc...

    Having been in a Chevy (Colorado?) version, I am not impressed. The Canyon may be better, I don't know.

    I will wait and judge the Ford then.

    I've seen where they will sell a cab-chassis only combo.
    Just slap the bed of choice on it
    Why would anyone want one ?

    Probably start with a high MSRP to get the initial profit, then increase discounts to undercut the Chevy. Would be my guess.

    Same with options of beds/cabs/engines.

    A newer one? The new Colorado / Canyon models started up in 2015.

    Yes.
    A temporary coworker had a '16 or '17 with the diesel. Stripper model.
    I then sat in one at the Auto Show here in Nashville.

    Size was right, ergonomics seemed off by just a bit.
    Maybe personal preferences.

    That would be best when I spill a 5 gallon can of gas...like I did in the back of my Gr Cherokee after the hurricane.
    Otherwise, I'm thinkin' this is the best topper;

    Sure wish one of these had a fold down tailgate though. The only ones i've seen is Renault and Range Rover

    And an optional 6 cyl. ... like that 3.5 that they have now for a few of their other vehicles including the Explorer.

    Yep, I'd rather go naturally aspirated. Maybe if I lived in a higher elevation area of the country.
    Still a good looking truck and having more options is always nice
    All my former trucks, vans and bronco's have been Fords
