A few years ago, automakers in Detroit decided to pull their mid-size trucks from their lineups, showing no indication of looking back—until now. General Motors brought back the mid-size Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado in 2015 and now, it looks like Ford will also bring back its mid-size pickup truck.
Ford recently announced it will be bringing the popular Ford Ranger back to join the F-150, which remains the most popular pickup truck in the market. The Ranger was last produced in the United States in 2012, but is still sold in a variety of international markets. Ford halted American production of the Ranger after many customers decided the F-150 was the choice for them due to its low price and high capabilities.
Now the average price of the F-150 breaks the $40,000 mark and sales are still going strong. That leaves plenty of wiggle room for a mid-size pickup.
Ford’s mid-size truck is set to reenter the market come 2018, whether it’s the Ranger or a new model altogether.

Knowing how to jump start your car is an essential part of driving. It’s easy to forget since few drivers jump start a car often. Even with roadside assistance, knowing how to start a dead battery can save time and money. Here’s an easy-to-follow guide to help you jump start your car!
- Once you’ve parked both cars, pop the hoods and identify the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals on each car’s battery. Do the same for the jumper cables.
- Attach the positive (red) cable to the positive terminal of the dead battery. Attach the other positive end to the live battery.
- Attach the negative (black) cable to the live battery’s negative terminal. Attach the other end to a jumper post or unpainted bolt near the dead battery. Watch out for fans and belts!
- Once everything is attached, start the car with the live battery. Let it idle for a few minutes while slightly pushing on the gas.
- After a few minutes have passed, try to start the car with the dead battery. If the car doesn’t start, wait a few more minutes and try again.
- Once the car starts, let both vehicles idle. After you disconnect the cables in the opposite order you attached them, continue on your way.
