Everything, duh.

Cons

Very little.

My Ford Ranger Edge — Performs pretty well. Interior isn't all snazzy and what not, but it's all good. Exterior is a nice plain white paint job. Very fun car to drive, you own the road. Gas mileage isn't horrible, I can manage with it.

V8 Please!!! — Ford needs to invest in a v8 for the ranger. I honestly love the looks of the ranger as of late. Gas mileage isn't too bad. I have never had it on a long highway drive yet. The interior looks like any other ford, too much in common.

Pros

Fun economical small truck

Cons

Door latches & handles

25

Good Lil Truck Could Have Bigger & Better Interior — Mechanically sound, will pull most anything a half ton will...just watch out for the plastic door handles & latches...musta been outsourced by ford. Love the 4x4 option, cruises great through snow. pretty good milesage for a 4x4 truck, between 24-16 mpg

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.

Manual gizmos

Charlie The Red Ranger — Great style and capabilities, tons of torque, limited slip rear axle, big v-6, fun to drive. got manual windows, locks, and mirrors, but it's not that bad. Got a good deal on it, $11K with less than 50K miles, hoping to take it off-road at some point and test its capabilities.

Cons

SMALL!!!

Xl Ranger — Love the sporty little 4-banger. Get good gas mileage (bout 22-24 mpg) and good get up and go for a 4-cyl. Little cramped sometimes. Just typical maintanence with oil changes etc. The truck is very very fun to drive and handles real nice for being a truck. Future plans are a lift and bigger tires.

Pros

Great color, great interior, great engine, people always think its new when its clean, and comfortable seats.

Cons

Needs rear disc breaks instead of drum and take the governor off 90mph!

Ranger Danger — Great truck with the 4.0L engine, but it could always use the 4.6L V8 if Ford would offer it in the Ranger.
