Pros

Ford :)

Cons

Not 4-wheel drive

Ranger — Good looking truck. It's only a 3.0 V-6 so the power ain't great but it's gets me from A to B. The gas mileage is decent for a truck. I've replaced the battery, alternator, and radiator so far lol. That's pretty understandable though because those same parts were on it since it was first made. I really wish it was a 4x4 lol.

Pros

Manual, and the stock sounds system is very good.

Cons

Only two door, and two seats :(

25

Decent Truck. — Eh it's an okay car for the price. It cost me 7k and being a Ford I was hesitant because of maintenance problems associated with that dealer. But so far it's been a reliable truck and is fun to drive because of it's manual.

Pros

Street cred, versatility and relaxed driver.

Cons

Overtaking ability and unreliable drivetrain

25

Fantastic Workhorse — This is a very comfortable and reliable vehicle. My one was quite heavy on diesel though, while the performance was fairly mediocre. Servicing and maintenance was reasonable. The biggest like for me was the respect one got on the road. It wasn't really large or fast, but people moved over readily on the freeway. My biggest gripe was with the diff and the useless gearbox. Ford has never been able to build a gearbox worth noting for it's reliability.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Fuel efficient truck

Cons

Large towing or 3+ people trips

Dependent Little Truck :) — Good truck. Like most of it. Good mileage for it's size and usage. Wish it had a lil more room in the ext. cab and more power. Tough shocks. Decent to drive, not too exciting, but not boring either. Rides high for a small truck, which I like.

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.

Pros

MPG

Cons

Small

25

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.
