We’ve told you already that the upcoming Ford Ranger, which hits dealer lots in January, stands to become an endlessly customizable midsize pickup. anyone in the mood for a Napier tent?), but it certainly is an extensive list.

If you’re curious, the full Ranger accessories rundown can be found here. More Yakima gear will join the Ford Accessories ranks over time, the automaker claims.

    This is just an effort to get more people into the sales floor on launch day. Once the aftermarket catches up nobody will walk over to the Ford parts counter to buy these things. I know people who go buy Wranglers and then spend another $5k on aftermarket parts. Even though you can walk over to the parts counter and buy a lot of stuff through the MOPAR catalog. The only people buying aftermarket parts through the dealer catalogs are the DEALERSHIPS upfitting vehicles to try and sell them quicker.

      The dealerships don’t do that to sell the vehicles quickly— they do it so they never have to sell a base model at base model pricing. Every car store I ever worked did this. Toyota did it with Tacomas and Tundras— Chrysler did it with Wranglers and Rams. You’ll find a base model Wrangler exactly never. It’ll be advertised at $26,999.99– once you’re at the store, it’ll have $15k in lift, rims and aftermarket leather added to that price. You’ll sometimes see the same vehicle advertised both ways with the same VIN :)

  • MaintenanceCosts Despite my hostile comments above I really can't wait to see a video of one of these at the strip. A production car running mid-eights is just bats. I just hope that at least one owner lets it happen, rather than offloading the car from the trailer straight into a helium-filled bag that goes into a dark secured warehouse until Barrett-Jackson 2056.
  • Schurkey Decades later, I'm still peeved that Honda failed to recall and repair the seat belts in my '80 Civic. Well-known issue with the retractors failing to retract.Honda cut a deal with the NHTSA at that time, to put a "lifetime warranty" on FUTURE seat belts, in return for not having to deal with the existing problems.Dirtbags all around. Customers screwed, corporation and Government moves on.
  • Bullnuke An acquaintance of mine 50+ years ago who was attending MIT (until General Hershey's folks sent him his "Greetings" letter) converted an Austin Mini from its staid 4 cylinder to an electric motored fuel cell vehicle. It was done as a project during his progression toward a Master Degree in Electrical Engineering. He told me it worked pretty well but wasn't something to use as a daily driver given the technology and availability of suitable components of the time. Fueling LH2 and LOX was somewhat problematic. Upon completion he removed his fuel cell and equipment and, for another project, reinstalled the 4 banger but reassembled it without mechanical fasteners using an experimental epoxy adhesive instead which, he said, worked much better and was a daily driver...for awhile. He went on to be an enlisted Reactor Operator on a submarine for a few years.
  • Ajla $100k is walking around money but this is almost certainly the last Dodge V8 vehicle and it's likely to be the most powerful factory-installed and warrantied pushrod engine ever. So there is some historical applicability to things even if you have an otherwise low opinion of the Challenger.And, like I said up thread, if you still hate it will be gone soon anyway.
  • Carlson Fan GM completely blew the marketing of the Volt. The commercials were terrible. You'd swear they told the advertising company to come up with an ad that would make sure no one went out and shopped a Volt after seeing it!...........LOL My buddy asked why I bought a car that only goes 40 miles on a charge? That pretty much sums up how confusing and uninformative the advertising was.
