so glad they are giving the 2 litre bi-turbo POS the flick - going smaller is NOT the answer

And yet they are reducing the capacity of the largest engine from 3.2 to 3.0, and keeping the 2.0l in single & double turbo versions.

seriously, you are worried about 0.2 of a litre, so 200ml is a concern to you?  Grab a measuring cup and see how much 200ml actually is

The V6 is what is impressing me

They'll probably be electric soon anyway.

So going smaller is OK after all.

200mil - are you serious? - go and get a measuring cup and show us how much 200ml is, that is 33.33333ml per cylinder  - that is how much cough syrup you take

A big difference in dropping from 3.3 litre to 2.0 litre - do you need me to do the maths on that one for you?  :o

Do you now want to try to put some spin on why keeping the 2 litre bi-turbo engine is OK?

Looks a tad different than my old Ranger from about seven years ago.  2.2 liter four banger.  Two plugs per cylinder.  Five speed manual.  You could time it from zero to 60 mph with a calendar.  It was a 1994 model.

hell no

why do you think Ford is thinking it is a good idea to get rid of the POS only after a short period (compared to the 3.2)

So all the reports saying they are keeping the 2l bi-turbo are incorrect?

I have no idea, but the owner reports I read mean it should go

That's what they need to throw in the Ranger Raptor.

Not a fan, prefer the current model. Too square and boxy at the front end.
