It's Official The Ford Ranger Will be Dead by 2009

It looks like the Ford Ranger is going to die by 2009.

The Twin Cities Plant in St. Paul, MN that currently builds the Ranger is set to close by 2009 and the Cleveland plant that casts the engine blocks is also going to close in the same year.

It’s been rumored for a while that the Ranger is going to eventually die, but now it looks like its death has been confirmed. It looks like the compact truck class just got a lot smaller.

But who knows…the Ford Ranger is sold in other countries and it is a completely different truck than we have here. Maybe Ford will figure out a way to bring that truck here if the market demands it.
