Or maybe the Chevy S10, etc?

There is a market for smaller trucks like the original Ranger. Or maybe there used to be and that disappeared? Everyone seems to want bigger interior space and cargo room to carry stuff that they probably never do anyway.

Now you will see why they partnered up with VW. This was what VW wants in the European market, lots of boiler room planning going on.

Ranger is planned to be returned.

If you need small truck, come here to SODO area of Seattle. We have used Japan imports dealership with all kinds of small trucks made in Japan. 4WD, trucks, vans, other Japan minded utility vehicles.

I'd love to have a Toyota truck with the size of the Gen2 pickups. I had a 1994 4WD Extracab and it was the perfect size. Even the new Tacoma is quite a bit bigger than I really need.

You'll get a small ute. It's not going to be a pickup.

Eww. As if the Honda Ridgeline and Subaru Baja (model they shot in the head some years ago) weren't bad enough...

I had a small truck. It was pointless. Cramped and uncomfortable inside. Little worthless engine. Limited bed capacity, it could carry about the same payload as you could put in the trunk of a car. . Limited towing. MPG was barely better than a full size. Cost was barely different than full sized. Insurance was higher. the biggest downside for me was the cabin space. It was terrible. Also it was cheap inside compared to the luxury liners they sell as full sized trucks now.

Only advantages were it cornered better and was easier to park. Not even close to worth the disadvantages.

I liked it ok. it lasted a good time. but i never understood why someone would want one over a normal truck. Very popular though. when I went to sell it, I got tons and tons of calls even though it was not drive-able.
