Great Little Work Truck That Gets Good Gas Mileage - Don't Try To Race It — This is an exciting 98 bhp 2.3L 4 cylinder truck. It has been in my family since it was bought off the dealer lot. I am the third family owner of it. Only has 107,000 miles on it. I only drive it about 1,200 miles a year and that's been the case since 2002. It had 98,000 miles on it when I bought it from my dad. I have read nothing but negative reviews on the repair history for this truck but for some reason, it has been as good as gold for my family. We do perform regular maintenance on it and replace parts before they break so maybe that's the key. However, it gets great gas mileage (21 mpg around town and close to 31 on the highway). We upgraded the exhaust into a gibson cat back system and it improved gas mileage by 2 mpg. It also bumped up the horsepower another 6 or 7 bhps. We installed a customer airflow intake system and that added another 1 or 2 mpg improvement and probably added 10 bhp. It is probably pumping out about 114 bhp now and has noticeably more kick and punch to it. Just replaced the timing belt and the water pump but that was to be expected. Rides great since replacing the shocks and tires last year. Very reliable. Always starts. Even when it sits for months. Love this truck.

Pros

I like the power and reliability of the motors.

Cons

I don't like how the front end is lower than the back.

The Bottom Line Is That If I Were To Buy Another Small Truck I Would Definatly Buy Another Ranger. — Ford Rangers are very reliable trucks. They handle great in snow and on ice. The 2wd's are even great in the mud. The motors are very reliable. Mine has a little over 237k on the 4.0v 6, and its never been rebuilt and it doesnt burn a drop of oil.

Very Nice — it needs a paint job, it runs great. it is a four cylinder. Has a good bit of power for it. It cost me $900 to buy it. It takes $35 to fill it up. Can haul 2,00 pounds. This car is very fun to drive. It is a 5 speed.

Best — Best Vehicle ever owned looking to totally restore it this summers. great little truck lots of power for a 4 cylinder pulled out a 1978 bronco that has sat for years with just 300 xtra pounds in the back for traction. put new clutch in all new bearings in and a new master cylinder and it drives and handles like a dream

This Was My Second Car I Got It When It Had 146k On It And It Has 168 On It Now I Love It — my truck is fun and i love it i drive it home from school almost every weekend. i put a cluch in at about 150, the onwer before me got it stuck and fried the cluch, and new tires at the sametime but besides for that it has not ever given me a problem. it is purple and has a topper. i need to replace the shocks soon they are about done in. it is dependable and i am going to drive it till it wont go any more.

Betsy — I bought it 3 yrs ago for 2300.00 and got my monies worth but I have recently had to put more money into it because I am a courier and I do 150- 250 miles a day driving. I hope I can keep her running for another two yrs.

Great Vehicle To Own Along With Low Maintanance. Take Care Or It, It Will Take Care Of You!! — my 1993 ford ranger 2wd is a great little truck. runs great but could still use some work in my opinion. although it is 2wd it does really well in the snow. i plan on putting a bigger motor in it and a 4wd kit under it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
