Would have posted this in the Introductions & Welcome Center, but posting is not open there for some reason.

I migrated over from B6G back in January. I currently have a Bronco on order with Chapman, but I'm still pretty far out. And at this point I'm kind of over the Bronco anyway.

I am really looking forward to the US reveal of the Gen6 Ranger. I would probably have already bought a Ranger, but there are things about the Gen5 I really didn't like.

I really like what I have seen so far with the overseas Gen6 reveal. The fact that you don't have to jump to a Lariat anymore to get LED headlights is a major plus.

Hoping for
  • 60/40 rear fold flat seat
  • 4A/advance 4x4
  • Heated steering wheel option
  • Tremor package
I'm currently on the waitlist at Chapman for when the 2023 order banks open. Hopefully pricing won't go up substantially and the packages are appealing.

For now just sitting back and waiting like everyone else.

Would you keep the Gladiator. if not why are you jumping ship.
No not keeping the Gladiator. I love it. It's just a pretty harsh ride and I have spinal issues that are getting worse. And as with any Jeep it is always a constant struggle to get it where you want it. Just Empty Every Pocket is not a lie.

Don't get me wrong. Upgrading and modding is fun. It can just become very consuming.

If I do buy a 6G Ranger I would option for the 8 way adjustable heated seats. That paired with the advanced cruise control would make the Ranger more enjoyable on long distance trips. I know were you are coming from about back troubles. I have an old Ranger the seats are terrible, plus the cockpit is small for a large person. Then add on a standard transmission which I like most of the time. . I would not take it on a long trip.
I think Ford has made a mistake by not offering a rear split beach seat.

My issues are neck related. I've already had two fusions and I will probably need a third. The Gladiator seats are not comfortable for more than an hour and the ride as I said is pretty harsh. Even with suspension improvements I've made.

And watching the overseas videos it looks like they will stick with the one piece bench. Which makes zero sense. It makes the under seat storage unusable if you have a car seat. Maybe the NA version will be different. I guess we still have time to be vocal. LOL

I thought the 6G for the US was a MY2024

No one knows for sure what they are going to classify them as. They are supposed to start production May 2023. So it will either be a short MY2023 run or a long MY2024 run.
