:histerica who cares. Any thief can break into almost any car in seconds if they want to learn how. I havenít found a car I canít get into without breaking glass. Tards just need to learn how NOT to be a target. Park in high traffic areas, don't leave fancy radios hanging out of the dash, back seat full of retail shopping bags.

huh, didn't know that about the ranger, glad that they showed everyone how easy it is....cause now I'm sure people are dying to give it a try. (i might need to intentionally lock the keys in mine...)

But...like fireguy said, there are a lot of ways to break into most vehicles and they are usually pretty damn quick. A bronco is no different and you use the same antenna.

Its just like on the mazda 3's. If you go up and really kick the lower part of the door had they doors will unlock.

nope its one of their best selling trucks.

superdutys are just that easy to break into and steal too. the thing about the rangers is they have a PATS key so its harder to actually be taken once they are into it. It doesn't stop from getting inside and stealing stuff it keeps the truck there. This goes out the window if they thief knows what they are doing.

i like how the news showed everyone how to do it so now kids are going to be breaking into all the trucks in the area. bright idea! I hate the media

why best selling truck in its class. Pay attention when you drive, count all the rangers you see on your way to work....now this only works if you live more then 5 minutes from work. Including myself I can easily count 30 rangers in the 30 minutes to work. Myself, my best friend, and my dad all own one. Then a couple other buddies...hell I might need to start an alabama ranger club with as many people I know that own one.

Heh, yeah my brother just drove his Ranger up from Texas for the summer, and as soon as he got here, he showed me how to do it.

I was pretty surprised too.

umm... I do. I just tryed it too... they aren't kidding, it's simple...

Then again, locks are for keeping honest people out. If a thief wants into something, whether it's a car, house, shed or garage, they'll get in.

this is where common sense comes in, don't leave cool stuff in plain sight.

Mr Ranger predates that flaw.

On it they would have to find the "Slim-Jim" I have in the toolbox to break in :histerica

Retire the Ranger?
Ford weighs options as small truck segment sags

By RICHARD TRUETT | AUTOMOTIVE NEWS

AutoWeek | Updated: 06/04/07, 8:28 am et

The clock is ticking on Ford Motor Co.'s ancient Ranger compact pickup, the plant where it is built and maybe the entire compact pickup segment.

Next year, Ford will close the St. Paul, Minn., plant where the Ranger is assembled. Soon the automaker must decide whether to schedule a Ranger replacement or bail out of the segment.

It will be a tough call. Last year Ford sold only 92,420 Rangers, down 59.1 percent since 2002. Yet Ford will be reluctant to abandon a segment that attracts first-time buyers to the brand.

Ford's competitors will face similar decisions. Industrywide, U.S. sales of compact pickups have dwindled from about 800,000 units in 2002 to about 611,000 last year. So far this year, segment sales are down 10.1 percent.

But it looks like the Super duty is doing pretty good.

Super Sales
Ford's redesigned Super Duty trucks exceed expectations

By RICHARD TRUETT | AUTOMOTIVE NEWS

AutoWeek | Updated: 06/04/07, 9:18 am et

DETROIT -- Three highly profitable versions of the redesigned 2008 F-series Super Duty pickups are exceeding Ford Motor Co.'s sales projections.

Buyers are snapping up fully optioned F-350s, such as the Lariat and King Ranch, in greater numbers than expected. The F-450 pickup also looks like a winner.

The Super Duty, Ford's most profitable vehicle line, is one of the company's two key launches this year. The other is the reintroduction of the Taurus sedan this fall.

Through April, Lariat sales are up 30 percent and King Ranch sales are up 53 percent compared with the same period a year ago, Ford says.

But the biggest surprise is the F-450. Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood says that through April, the F-450 was the hottest selling of the new Super Duty pickups in terms of days to turn: less than 15.

In volume for the quarter, the F-250 remained the top-selling Super Duty.

Ford sales analyst George Pipas says that in April, Super Duty sales accounted for 43 percent of all F-series sales of 228,343 units.

Ford's profit on highly optioned models could reach as high as $17,000, says Art Spinella, president of CNW Marketing Research in Bandon, Ore. Most 2008 Super Duty pickups sell for close to full sticker price, which can exceed $60,000.
