New “Small” Ford Truck In The Works

By Jen Dunnaway

Editor

Ford’s Ranger will reportedly soon be put out to pasture, and with gas prices being what they are, the manufacturer is scrambling to replace its compact truck. PickupTrucks.com reports that Ford’s new petite pickup, possibly to be named the F-100, will essentially be a 9/10-scale F-150—and considering how blimpy those have gotten in recent years, it won’t really be that small at all. But although it’ll share the body-on-frame platform of its larger cousins, the F-100 will score its owner considerable gas savings through weight reduction, mostly as a result of high-strength steel and aluminum components. But don’t expect it to hit the market until 2011. More at PickupTrucks.com.
