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

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!

Pros

Sturdy build

Cons

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.

Pros

Love It — I purchased this truck, used, 3 weeks ago and i like the way it rides and drives. The sonic blue paint really scratches easy. It sure gets a lot of attention. I have also found that using the turtle wax ice detailer helps with taking care of the paint job. i drive about 100 miles a day to work and this puppy gets a lot of attention.

Best Domestic Light Truck — I like this more than the S10. Still a lot of plastic (can't get away from that, so I'll shut up from now on), quite reliable, good money.
