Interesting. I think Rangers could be hot sellers. Sometimes you want a truck, but you don't need a big one.

And that's exactly why Chevy, GMC and Toyota offer midsize trucks.

Also, +2 points to you for not including a photo of the much publicized but in no way remotely actual design of the new Bronco.

the world market small diesel ranger (really toyota hilux, but same concept) is the exact vehicle I wanted, but had to settle on a cayenne. the price point is kinda fucked in this segment, at least in the US. 35k for the chevy colorado diesel

I read a different article that said this too.

Pretty much this. But then again I was a bit too young to see the whole picture of the midsize truck market back in the mid-90's to 2000's.

To me, the Dodge Dakota was the quintessential midsize truck- bigger than a Toyota/Nissan, but notably smaller than the 1/2 Ton Ram.

Now, it appears, that the trucks are marginally smaller than a 1/2 ton, and pricing is really not that different at all.

the dakotas kinda sucked too. at least they were affordable. they would've been awesome with a small diesel and some beefed up brakes, though.

the compact nissans and toyotas were sufficient for most typical homeowner truck tasks. they were great vehicles.

^^My first car was a '93 Dodge Dakota in 1997. Dad then upgraded to a 1995 Dakota. They were alright for most stuff but they were rather unreliable. Both dropped the tranny at 135k miles.

Since then our secondary vehicle is a 1995 Ford Ranger, stick shift and four cylinder. It has over 300k miles. I probably need to replace it but there is nothing comparable in size. Maybe I will look at one of these new Rangers. The big trucks would just be a pain in the add to drive in downtown Carrboro/Chapel Hill.

^The Dodge Caravans had terrible transmission problems too in the 90s. Chrysler made shitty transmissions back then for most of their products.
