I think Ford is making a mistake by losing the Ranger. I'm not trying to be biased or anything. I owned a 2000 Ranger 4x4, and overall, it was a tough truck, but really outdated. I drove a 2010 Colorado 4x4 5.3L and it was a real nice truck. It felt really solid, and better than the Ranger. I know if Ford had put some effort into revitalizing the ranger with a new exterior, or even just an updated engine line, they'd be able to keep up with the Colorado v8 (I have no comments on the I5..it feels like a mistake on GM'* part to me).
That website about the Caprice seems very biased. They didn't even mention the v8 Charger at all. But I'm sure that it couldn't keep up with the Interceptor SHO. Especially not in a climate where there is a real winter with lots of snow, ice, and terrible road conditions. I've seen a lot of bad conditions, and I've seen a few Crown Vic interceptors that have had trouble in the snow. A couple years ago, I saw two turning at an intersection with lights and sirens on, fishtailing, because of the outdated design. AWD will always be the dominant drivetrain when it comes to police vehicles. I'd really like to see GM make the Caprice AWD. With the 6.0, it would be a real hard car to beat. The same also applies for Dodge and the Hemi Chargers.
