Ford Is Urging 2,900 Ranger Drivers To Stop Driving Right Now

  Ford Is Urging 2,900 Ranger Drivers To Stop Driving Right Now Ford today said that it would tell 2,900 owners of certain 2006 Ford Rangers to stop driving their cars immediately. Owners need to bring them in for fixes after they’d previously confirmed that a second death had been linked to a bad Takata air bag, according to Reuters. The Rangers are believed to be at the highest risk for air bag explosion, and were all built in the same day and might have gotten the same bad air bags. In addition to Ford, Mazda said that they would be doing something similar for 2006 Mazda B-series trucks. The news came after Ford had confirmed that a deadly crash in West Virginia in July 2017 was because of a bad airbag.

It’s Official: Ford Ranger Returns to North America

  It’s Official: Ford Ranger Returns to North America Shopping in the mid-size truck segment? You now have another option to consider: Ford is set to officially announce at the Detroit auto show that it’s bringing the Ranger back to the North American market. Though it has been available overseas since it was last sold here in 2011, the 2019 model we’re getting is no import. Rather, Ford says trucks sold here will be built in Michigan and feature a new exterior design, chassis, and powertrain developed for North American buyers. Set on a high-strength steel frame with frame-mounted steel front and rear bumpers and available integrated trailer hitch, the Ranger will come equipped with Ford’s 2.3L twin-turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine – here given forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods and chain-driven dual overhead cams for more durability – and a 10-speed automatic transmission, a first in the segment. The Ranger will come in three trim levels (XL, XLT, and Lariat), and cabs can be configured as either SuperCab with rear-hinged half-doors or the four-door SuperCrew.

It's the second vehicle the dealership, which opened in 2015 as as the 11th Basil family dealership, has reported stolen in the last six months, Niagara Falls Police Capt. Michael Trane told the paper. The last vehicle it reported as being stolen was later found in the parking lot of a nearby Target store.

"This is not the first time that this has happened and this has been an ongoing issue for the past few months," the police report cites Basil Ford's sales manager as saying.

Is a conscientious car thief operating in Niagara Falls? Perhaps a forgetful one at that? Or did he or she like the Taurus so much they couldn't bear to return it? We probably won't know until the thief is caught.
