Default Out for a drive in the new R A N G E R

With weather looking very Seattle-ish I am looking forward to instead of taking the bike out for a ride tomorrow - taking the new R A N G E R for a drive... I just love putting my foot into the EcoBoost 2.3 engine with full torgue at 3000 rpm.. Never had a truck put a smile my face every time I drove it like this one... Hope it stays reliable. Im convinced this is the most feature and safety gadget mid size truck to be had for the money. Yes I drove all the others and had deals pending on most but this is what spoke to me and tows 7500 lbs with cross traffic alert included even for the tow vehicle! Funny, it will send me an email to start it if It has been sitting for too long and has any parasitic electrical drain drag on the battery. Spending this much money to pay for this new truck was hard but the more I enjoy it the less the anguish over the cost. I had run my new 05 Chevy 5.3 almost 100K miles with only oil changes and one set of tires. Period. Hope this is as easy to own.

Today's "medium" trucks are as large as the 'full size' trucks of 30 years ago.
