    Good For The Part Time Off-roader Or Someone Looking For A Functional Multipurpose Truck On A Budget — Great truck all around. Decent power, very stylish out side. The 4.0l V6 hasn't given me any problems at all. I love the edge interior with the vinyl floors and seats. Very easy to clean up. However my only true gripes about the truck would have to be the gas mileage and how big the bed is with it being a stepside and the fact that the Edge, 4x4, 4.0l ranger (2001) is extremely hard to find performance parts and lift kits for!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome looking truck

    Cons: Towing capacity, lack of lift kits for a decent price

    Absolutely Love It — 4.0 is real torquey. could climb a brick wall. never had any real problems with it. gas mileage is what you get for a 4x4 truck. off road, its a freaking blast to drive. just finished paying it off, so thats a plus.

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

    Pros: if you want a light 4x4 truck, this is the way to go

    Cons: gas mileage is no bueno

    I Love It. Just Wish I Had More Money To Put Into Mine — Not the best acceleration, but it's a truck! Braking is fair, but it would help if i had new tires. Handling si pretty great; i've made some tight turns going 40+, but you do want to be careful not to roll it. I had to take it in shortly after buying 2008 for transmission and the mechanism that changes in and out of 4x4 may need fixed soon. It just started to squeak about a weak ago, but it's only when i release the parking break and leave the driveway.Gas mileage for all things between city and highway is about 17 for me. I've probably put $200+ the big transmissin fix into it since i bought it used a little over a year ago. Insanely fun to drive. Not limited to roads, etc.

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

    Pros: chicks dig and muddin

    Cons: Can be hard to figure out metric vs standard parts if you work on it yourself

    Its Great If You Dont Need To Lug Many People Around, And Can Tow Little Things Like Jet Skis Easily — performance wise, well hey, it is a truck, not a sports car, build quality is pretty decient, ive owned and family has owned quite a few fords, its definetly on the better side of there vehicles. Appearance, I love it, Ive allways liked rangers, Ive wanted one since I started looking for my first car, interior is comfortable for me atleast, plenty of room, unless I need to fit more then two people, you gotta be pretty small to fit in the back cause it only has two little pilot seats. Its a little bit costly to maintain, but it is a 4wd and I knew that getting into it, ive had just a few minor issues with u-joints and hubs but nothing major. Ive driven many trucks and pickups, its definetly easier to drive then a full size truck, and imo it kills the old chevy s-10, its much more comfortable to drive and the ride doesnt even compare, the s-10 can be alot rougher. Overall I couldnt be happier with the truck I dont think, I love it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfortable ride for a truck

    Cons: not a whole lot of room for many passengers

    Ford Ranger — I love my ranger. Performance wise its not bad for a 4.0L. It definately doesn't have a problem pulling out in the passing lane. The only repairs I've had to do is basic maintenance. Gas mileage is ehhh....but I guess its not bad for a 4,200 lb truck. This truck had never let me down.

    Pros: Hasn't let me down in the 5 years I've had it.

    Cons: Gas mileage when its 4 bucks a gallon
