The Ford Ranger has been on the market for 12 years in its current incarnation, and while the Ford F-Series might be America’s favorite truck, the Ranger doesn’t look like its slowing down any time soon either.
With the April sales numbers released yesterday, Pickuptrucks.com made the startling discovery that in April of 2010, the Ranger outsold some pretty good cars like the Ford Mustang, Ford Flex, Honda Fit, Chevrolet Suburban and the Mercedes C-Class. The Ranger is also beating the Flex, Fit and Suburban in Year-To-Date sales.
We’re not exactly sure what would compel anybody to buy a Ford Ranger, but the low price-tag and durable construction must be appealing for a certain section of consumers. Then again, everyone loves a good underdog story, and a 12 year old pickup beating the entry level Mercedes in the sales race? You couldn’t make that up.
