Back in December, 52-year-old Joel Knight was plodding along in his 2006 Ford Ranger when he crashed into a cow and a fence. The odd part, according to the law firm representing his family, is that the crash didn’t kill him. The airbag did.
You may have heard that Australian auto journalist Peter Barnwell inadvertently burned a Ford Everest SUV to the ground last week. Ford is now saying their investigation has concluded; somebody put the battery in wrong.

Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The 2015 Ford Ranger has just added the Wildtrak top trim to its lineup, which is a slightly prettier variant of their allegedly excellent pickup truck enjoyed in 180 countries around the world.
You don't need a huge horsepower monster twin turbo build to do a fatty burnout.
The 2015 Dakar Rally and its hundreds of vehicles are raging across South America right now. Racers, support crews, logistics teams... and my diesel, manual, 2WD support trucks being bludgeoned within an inch of existence but simply refusing to die.

I'm not going to say that a seatbelt is an absolute must-have when you're launching your old Ford Ranger many feet into the air, because I've never jumped a truck before. But looking at this video evidence, I think it might be a good idea.
Last Summer’s Lone Ranger movie may have been box office bowel antics, but that doesn’t mean today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ford Ranger needs to be. It’s rocking a Turbo Pinto mill, but will the Ranger's price have you shouting hi-ho silver?
The present Government shutdown may have idled a ton of park rangers, but owing to its 5.0 you wouldn't want to do the same with today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ranger. Will its price however prove to be a threatening fiscal cliff?
