I think it's safe to say that the Ford Ranger is quickly becoming a TCL Darling, although I'm not quite sure why considering it goes against almost everything that TCL posters stand for.
My question is why haven't the Chevy S10/GMC Sonoma duo earned the same reputation as the Ranger? The GM 2.2 and 4.3 are very comparable to the Ford 2.3, 3.0 and 4.0. A GM 700-R4 is just as bad as any Ford automatic (a shortcoming that seems to consistently evade scrutiny in TCL) and neither truck will win any beauty contests. The GM trucks' interiors are MUCH nicer, at least IMO.
Anyone care to explain this discrepancy? Is it just cooler to like Fords than it is to like Chevies?
