Late Model Ranger — This truck has great looks. Good leg and head room for front passengers. The four liter V-6 engine has plenty of power with good gas mileage. The ride is a little stiff, but you should expect this with a four wheel drive. Over-all a great little truck, Ford should never have stopped manufacturing.

Awesome Vehicle! Good mpg, plenty of power, easy to drive.

Cons

The lighter grey in the front seats would be easy to stain I think.

2011 Ford Ranger Xlt 4.0l Auto — Excellent condition Ford Ranger. I bought the truck brand new and have hardly put any miles on it. It's a fun truck to drive and it gets decent miles to the gallon. Of course your mpg is dependent to the way you drive. My truck is still basically new, still smells new. I have just recently started tracking my mpg with http://www.fuelly.com/driver/thatguycody. My average as of right now is 21.5mpg. It's a 4.0L V6 with a 5 speed automatic transmission. It's a 2 wheel drive vehicle with 4 doors and plenty of room.

Overall Great Vehicle — I like the dependability of this vehicle. I purchased it because I had previously owned a 2001 Ford Ranger that lasted me 10 years 225,000 miles. The 4.0 V6 engine is very strong and the towing capacity is 5000 lbs. I use this truck as my daily transportation and although the truck is a 4x4 the ride is relatively smooth. I am disappointed that Ford has discontinued this model.

Pros

4.0L V6 is very efficient and delivers a smooth performance in town and on the highway. Its easy to maintain and very reliable! It comes with a towing package, fixed running boards, fog lights and a sporty body style. The interior has two bucket seats and a roomy center consul. Behind the front seats is a supercab with two folding jump seats, providing lots of room for extra cargo. It come with an auxiliary for any type of mp3, iPhone or Android smartphone. Also Sirius XM is ready but not active. Convenient cruise control, power mirrors, power locks and power windows. The heater works great in the winter and quickly warms the entire cabin and the A/C blows cold air during the summer. It also has a back sliding window. Overall great reliable truck and has been a gas saver compared to other mid size trucks. It will take little to maintain and I would imagine this truck has a long life still ahead of it.

Cons

Does not allow for many passengers so its not the ideal family vehicle. It does have light hail damage and small exterior cosmetic issues but its a used truck and this is Kansas so its not uncommon. The front passenger blinker lens is missing and that particular part has been difficult to find in stock.

2011 Ford Ranger Supercab Sport — One of the main reasons I need to get rid of it is the fact that it isnt a family vehicle and I really need more space for car seats. It does not have a bed liner. It accelerates very smoothly and has wonderful handling especially on windy roads and tight corners. The brakes arent too touchy but very reliable and makes a safe vehicle, side air bags on both driver and passenger side and front air bags for both driver and passenger. It went on a few road trips and the bucket seats make a comfortable ride for long distances. Its an enjoyable truck to have and convenient to tow something under 3,200 lbs, its also nice to have a bed for moving small furniture or just hunting/fishing/work/sporting equipment. Ranger is one of the more reliable and economic mid size trucks on the market. The silver exterior does not show much dirt and the pearly over coat looks really sharp on a sunny day. Great overall truck and holds some serious market value!

Pros

nearly full size capability, slightly better mileage and all for under $16,000 CAD on the road. The joy of simplicity via: Ford Ranger

Cons

Interior quality and features, but all is relative when the price is factored in. I paid less than it costs for a new KIA RIO.

2011 Ford Ranger Sport 2wd Ext. Cab Manual — Great truck all considered. It's as big as I would ever want a vehicle. Has good power with the 4.0 V6 and the 5-speed manual as I can hit 60mph in ~7.5seconds. It handles like it was built in the 1970's but my last vehicle was an RX8 so I'm used to a well balanced car. Linex bed-liner is the best thing I could have done. It really is practically invincible. I get more work done with my Ford Ranger than most guys ever think of doing with their full size 4x4's and for less than half the price. Interior quality leaves a little something to be desired and for a car with a standard satellite radio you'd expect key-less entry to also be standard. I had to install that myself from the aftermarket. 2011 models have std. stability control and rear disc brakes instead of the typical drums. There are millions of these on the road so maintenance should be about as cheap as they come. Lock for the tailgate and a good folding tonneau cover maximize the trucks versatility and for a grand total of $16,000 after taxes, fees and accesories I have a brand new truck that should serve me well, long after the 5 year warranty runs out.

Pros

Great Handling, great power, great out in the desert, comfortable.

Cons

Has a small seat in back, but not safe enough for children.

Great Vehicle! — I like everything about this truck. I like the handling, the power, and the accessibility. I don't dislike anything about it other than, now that I have a family, my young child cannot ride in it. This is a great truck.

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

Ranger, 4 Mid To Small People — 6 foot tall or more, your head will rub on the roof if you wear any kind of hat and the seat will have to be all the way back which makes the little child seat behind you useless. The V6 has good power, and fuel in the city is about 420 km for 70 L of reg gas. Floor mats are not included. It is a good looking truck inside and outside no matter what package you get.
