    4.0 Ranger — The 4.0 is amazing! mine has got the 6 speed automatic and a 4:10 rear end and can burn the 31 inch tires tires off in a heartbeat. i've had to replace the tranny, but i abused the hell out of it drag racing. its the solid-est truck i've ever had.

    Pros: more tire burn power then u'd dream off

    Cons: poor mileage

    Good For Short Runs In The City — good for runnig back and forth and for hauling small payloads. but short on performace as far as accelerating. the gas mileage stinks you have to fill it twice as much when you go on long trips. due to the small fuel tank . also the 4 wheel drive does not engage like it's suppose to all the time.

    Pros: there are none

    Cons: Read the reveiw

    2001 Ford Ranger — Performance is Terrible!!!, if you want good gas mileage then get the 4, if you want decent power go with the 4.0 the 3.0 v6 will just annoy you with its low power and crappy gas mileage. To sum it up 3.0= 4 cylinder power with V8 mileage. Build quality- well there are a lot of recalls on this one. My power steering failed after only 2k miles while it was parked. The passenger seat belt would come undone on its own while driving around town. The styling of the truck is getting really long in the tooth, ford has been using the same cab/body since '93!!! I have spent a lot of money keeping this truck in my fleet. So far I have done 4 brake jobs, 3 clutch repairs, 4 sets of tires and so on. And I only have 89k miles on it! It can be a fun truck to drive, but only in the right situation.

    Pros: Cost

    Cons: Fix Or Repair Daily!

    Danger Ranger — I love how this truck looks. It has a big truck look in a small package. This truck handles amazingly well considering it is a truck. This truck is very fun to drive and it definitely turns heads. You can do a lot of customization to one of these trucks. They are tough little trucks.

    Pros: sporty, tough, fast

    Cons: gas mileage

    My Truck — I love the truck, but I am startimg to see where the previous owner didn't much care about maintenance Performance is good, it accelerates well, and handles really good. Build quality is very solid. I have hit a desk in the middle of the freeway at 80 mph and only broke the grill, rear ended a couple of cars, and there is no visible damage from these. Appearance is starting to wan due to the previous owner not really giving a crap

    Pros: It Rocks

    Cons: ummm

    My Beloved Ford Ranger '01 — Not built for speed and doesn't really have good touque but the ride is solid and so is the suspensions which makes you feel more of a man when u ride it. Cars are built to enjoy the ride... not for massage effects. Gotta feel the road, every bump and every pothole. :D No more being road bullied, it's time TO road bully.

    Pros: Solid ride

    Cons: minimum comfort for those sissy boys & high fuel comsumption.

    Has Get Up And Go, Very Reliable In Any Weather. — This truck is a very good truck. Has good power under the hood, 4.0 V6. The 4WD is great for off-road and in the winter. The interior is very nice, a little small though if you want to have more than one passenger. Gas mileage is another down side, but I love driving this truck.

    Pros: Beastly engine, quality interior and styling.

    Cons: Gas mileage.

    A So-so Low Priced Pickup — If you are buying a pickup with the intent for hauling allot of of stuff I would recommend the Ford F-150 or any Dodge Ram. This truck is meant to be a low priced car which will get the job done but not do anything extraordinary and it lives up to that. It has some power and can tow a boat or trailer but not very gracefully. Its turning radius is fair especially for a truck and the acceleration is fair.

    Pros: Cheap and fairly rugged

    Cons: Not great to drive
