04 ranger or 05 v6 stang or 05 focus?

Okay I love my truck to death, but my mileage has sunk down to about mid 16's and i've got a 3.0 my mileage shouldn't be this crappy, but anyway. I'm flat out inlove with the new stang and i'm highly considering trading in this summer. I'll have a nice DP for it to because I have a good chunk of change heading my way so i'll be able to see a nice hefty drop in my monthly payment and insurrance just went down since I turned 21. What do y'all think(this is probably a stupid question since its a stang site and all lol) but what do you think, 04 ranger or a new v6 stang or 05 focus?

lmao... get a focus. you can get the engine swap kit and put a v8 in there, get about 500 hp. or just order one of these... http://www.streetracersonline.com/articles/rs8/
read an article in motor trend where someone tuned one up to 500 hp.. it had better numbers than the new gallardo.

If I got the focus i'd do some mild stuff performance wise, but mainly build it for road course racing and good gasmileage since I do pizza deliver I dont need a gas hog

I can see it now this big *** sign on top of a brand new 05. Wouldnt ever do it personally.

Id say get the focus. its good on gas, cheap on insaurnce and if you get (i forgot which model it is) they respond rather well to mods as well.

Plus an 05 V6 wouldnt be no differ in gas then your truck and betcha insaurnce would be higher then on your truck

Just thought i'd clear some things up about the saleen focus. It is nothing but a dressed up focus zx3 with a little engine upgrades like exhaust and intake and cpu stuff. It comes wired up for nitrous however it does not HAVE nitrous in the car. If you fill the bottle up that comes with the car it will void the warranty. However most that would buy it wouldn't care for warranty, but I thought I would state that since I learned that after I worked at my local ford dealership.
