Pros

Off-roading is a must in this one

Cons

Can't think of anything.

Ranger 4x4 — Had the 4x4 option with a lift kit. It made getting to the cottage a breeze. Definitely a must when travelling on the back roads of rural Ontario cottage country. One vechicle I regret selling. Still see it around ... stayed local.

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

Gas mileage and gutless engine

It Looks Better Than It Drives — Bought this truck used in 2007 and had it just over a year,I liked the offroad ability but it didnt handle too great on gravel and in snow,I was very dissapointed with the fuel mileage I got,there were half-ton trucks that got better mileage than me with my little quarter ton truck.

My Driver — I love this truck although it only has a v6 it still can drag its butt outa the mud. After the 33s it rides a lil ruff on the highway but all in all it rides really well for the tires that are on it.

I Love This Truck And Look Forward To Driving More Fords In The Future. — Well my truck is a bright red ford ranger with four doors and a step side bed with the fx4 off road package. i enjoy the larger of the two six cylinders that ford offered in this truck. power is plenty with the four liter and the 4.10 locking differential. I think the truck handles very well compared to other trucks i have driven. i bought this truck with only seventy two thousand miles and have only done normal maintenance. I think the out side of the truck is very stylish with the interior simple but nice. The way i drive the truck gets around 17mpg. i think this truck is very fun to drive and i look forward to moving into another ford when i have the money to buy what i want.

gas milage

Rangers Rock — great truck, very durable. i've been hit by a couple cars and it still drives fine. does a great job with 4x4, milage is easily affected by how you drive, i get from 15-19 mpg. the 4l has a ton of power :D easy to get a good sound system into.

Cons

None - no really, none!

My Truck — This is a real truck. It may not be an F-150/350/650, but it's the biggest official Ford pick-up in the UK. It does everything I ask of it, and more. 35mpg, four years and 40,000 miles on the original tyres, five years and 55,000 miles on the original clutch and brakes, and they're still going strong. Aside from the rubber, all I've had to replace is lamps and wiper-blades. It's quiet, relaxed, spacious, imposing so not very often cut-up or intimidated by other road-users, and the ICE isn't too damned bad for an OE unit. I'll keep it til it drops - and I think that will be some time yet!

A $6.000 Dollar Mistake — This car has been a disappointment, overall. It is under powered, has needed front end repairs 2 years in a row, driver's door handle broke, and the gas mileage is way lower than it should be on a 4 cyl engine
