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

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

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.

Great Truck — I love my Ford Ranger. I use it for anything, fuel economy is great and the power is awesome! I would have loved it to be a 4x4 double cab, but the supercab 4x2 is the only one I could afford.

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.

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.

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

2009 Ford Ranger — The truck rides like a tank. its got the Sport suspension on it and you feel just about every bump but its got nice comfy seats so its not back breaking. Helps in cornering fast and is a very stable truck. Gas mileage is ok but im bias coming from a F-150. It has the 4.0L which has great acceleration and braking is awesome. insurance is also surprisingly cheap.

2009 Ford Ranger Xlt Crew Cab — the things i love the most about my ford ranger XLT is that when you put your foot down, it just goes, it sounds awesome, it has the awesome sound of the 3litre Turbo Diesel engine underneath the bonet just waiting to be unleashed, the car looks great, i love the colour of it and even though its a full on work car it is fun to drive and it looks sporty. Even though it is a diesel and diesel is a little more expensive, it is pretty good on the fuel.

Great truck for less money

Cons

Tendency to easily roll

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.
