New Truck

The new Ford Ranger I special ordered back in September finally came it. Since my woman is physically incapable of driving a stick shift anymore, we needed a replacement for my SUV that she could drive if something happened to her car.

Well as luck would have it, shortly before the truck came in, her transmission started to fail. So guess who is driving the new truck until her car is fixed under warranty?

That's a nice looking truck
 
Oh no, go ahead and say it... wife's new truck. LOL... She sure has a nice set of wheels.

Well, it was bought as a replacement for the Honda CR-V and as a back up vehicle. LOL

With all the driving she does for work, I don't think she'll tolerate the hit in fuel economy long term. It would be nice to drive it once in a while though. I got one trip around the block... 😢
 
Nice truck SGT. Hope you both enjoy sharing it.
The "plan" is that it will be the family weekend vehicle like the CR-V was. The Nissan Versa and the 2011 Ford Ranger will be the daily drivers. The reason for the switch is because she is physically incapable of driving a manual transmission equipped vehicle even though she has the knowledge and experience. So, having the CR-V as the backup only partially filled that nitch because of the transmission and her limitations. If her car broke, which it did, she would have been left in a lurch. The right vehicle came at the right time.
