Great Compact Truck — Power dome hood looks great in black. 4ad is easy to operate and works great. Good hauling capacity and a reliable truck. It's my 3rd and I had 210,000 miles on the last one and it still looked great ( no rust) and ran very well too

I Love This Truck. — This truck has plenty of power and handles very nicely for a 4x4. Very solid feel and looks nice. gas mileage isn't great, but not extremly bad either. Very fun to drive off road. if your looking for a compact truck then this is the only one for you.

Pros

great acceleration and handling

Cons

gas mileage

Its Great I Recommend It — I like it because it is just fun to drive. it has good acceleration, mostly because the 4.0 v6 is a great engine. now because it has the 4.0v6 the gas mileage is not the best in the world. but I love it!

2009 Ranger Sport — Nicest vehicle I have ever had. traded in my 2006 Altima and have no regrets!! Smooth acceleration, lots of power, you sit nice and high up so easier to see the road and feels solid. One of the nicest trucks I have seen on the road.

Cons

Great Performance And Quality At A Great Price — The Ranger is extremely well built and has an amazing appearance. The brakes are great and acceleration is usually fine. It gets decent gas mileage too. The only negative is that you can feel the truck starting to roll on tight turns so you've got to take them slow.

Great Value And Utility — Ford Ranger , great small utility vehicle . Miles per gallon on 4 cylinder and 2 wheel drive is plenty for small work as well as small business needs. Shame that Ford has decided to end manufacturing of long running reliable utility work truck .

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

Good Looker — I liked the sporty look of the hood and fender flairs. The color is very pleasing as well as the interior color. The Rally Gauge Cluster gave interior a sporty look as well and was surprised that it rides pretty nice for being a small pick-up.

Pros

its cheap on gas, easily maintained and very simple to use.

Cons

no back seats means you cant crank your seats far back when your just hanging out

My Ranger — i own the bare bones ford ranger, the only option ordered was cloth seats over vinyl ones. surprisingly the 2.3 liter engine has sufficient power for day to day driving. it also gets pretty good gas mileage considering its a pickup. its still useful on the cargo front aslong as you dont start trying to tow heavy trailers. anything more than utility and youll feel it. other than that, its comfortable, good mileage, no problems braking, handles like a pickup but is still firm.

For the price its a must buy.

Cons

It dents easily.

Ford Workhorse — It's not a very fast car, but it was not meant to be. I can say that it is a strong work horse. The fuel economy is alright. One problem I have had on it, is the brakes squeaks alot. The body dents easily but the appearance is great.The car is a great car to drive. Its comfortable and the sterio is not that bad.
