Pros

Gas milage, Sporty

Cons

Not enough cab space, and too small to pull camper.

25

Good! — Too Small! Needs more cab space and heavier to pull camper. Its not what I wanted, I wanted an extended cab, but I guess beggers can't be choosers. This truck is only good for teenagers who wants to cruise around and not haul or tow anthing. Like camping or Landscaping.

MPG

Cons

Small

Ford Ranger — It's manual. Good brakes. It hasn't needed many repairs. It is an ok looking truck. I'm too big for the seat and steering wheel though. It gets about 27 mpg. Driving a stick is fun for a while but it gets annoying after a while. It's a very light car.

4.0 V6 Ranger Review — I love my truck!! It's fun to drive, tons of power for the 4.0 V6, owned it for a year now, never done anything on it except for swapping the air filters. Gas consumption isn't even too bad!! :D. Over all a great truck, definitely my favorite vehicle I've ever owned!

Reliable, good tow vehicle for 8 x 10 trailer or less

Cons

mileage isn't terrific, rides like a truck

2003 Ford Ranger Fx4 Level 2 — The little truck has never let me down. 87000 miles. Recommend highly. Great torquey V6 for pulling trailers. Surprises people how quick it is. Fun for rice burners with 31 inch all terrains on it. Mileage is ok, drive the speed limit it gets 17 or 18. Drive 70 or above, 15 or less.

Bigger Engine

Fx4 Ranger — Very solid truck. I have abused it time and time again offroading with minimal breaking. CV axles could be stronger and a more powerful engine. It has a tough appearance for its size especially when its lifted. Very fun to drive. Overall, its very reliable and fun to drive on and off road.

gas mileage, looks, size

Cons

interior space

55

Gas Mileage — gas mileage is great considering i have the I-4 with a 5 speed manual transmission, but it aint big enough for a family. the overall size is great for maneuverability. it does look pretty good although i did add a few upgrades. if your a DIYer the spark plugs are a pain, but the oil is real easy to change.
