I had a 99 Ranger with the 4.0 V6. It was all I needed in a truck. However, it got F150 gas mileage so I traded up for an F150 to get more family space.

My 2001 is a 2.3L 5 speed. I get mid-20s around town. It's amazing how much a bigger engine will cost!

I am a fan of the smaller pickup. Easier to park in the city and I use it as a wheelbarrow to spread mulch. A full size truck wouldn't work in that way. Big trucks and small trucks have their place, but these days for some reasons we love huge everything.

I drive a cargo van every day. Its such a pleasure to jump into my 2004 Tacoma prerunner every chance I get. Its a fun drive and so practical. At least once a week someone will offer to buy it from me. I plan to run it into the ground 186K miles and still going strong.

Does everyone really love the big trucks or is it just that for years (and even now in reality), small trucks didn’t realize a significant fuel savings so many just opted to go full sized?

Yes i love my F150ís is nice to know i can tow a trailer or big camper when i need to. My x had a Ranger i could not even sit in it, and the engine was just a Explorer motor. To me small pickups are useless.

Obviously Iím not saying no one likes them. My point is questioning the constant ďtheres no market for small trucksĒ mantra. I posit that theres no market for small trucks that get crappy gas mileage. If the companies delivered a small truck that actually made gas mileage noticeably different from the full sized models, I posit that the market would bear them once again.

Why could you not sit in it?

The 4.0 V-6 in my Ranger had torque for days and I towed with it.
