2006 Ford Ranger

The 2006 Ford Ranger received primarily positive reviews from its owners. They love the inexpensive price and fuel efficiency. Some complained about the "cheap" looking dash and interior, but noted that it was worth not paying the extra money for a slightly nicer looking truck.

The regular cab proved more popular than the extended, as the rear seat in the larger truck was very uncomfortable to sit in and near impossible to climb in to and out of. The largest engine is a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 148 horsepower, while the peppy 2.3-liter I4 rated at 143 horsepower is the base. The I4 gets great fuel efficiency ast 24 city/29 highway. The V6 lags behind in this area at only 18 city/23 highway.
