Good Lil Truck Could Have Bigger & Better Interior — Mechanically sound, will pull most anything a half ton will...just watch out for the plastic door handles & latches...musta been outsourced by ford. Love the 4x4 option, cruises great through snow. pretty good milesage for a 4x4 truck, between 24-16 mpg

Pros: Fun economical small truck

Cons: Door latches & handles

2004 Ranger Edge Extended Cab, Sb —

I bought my Ranger 3 years ago with 17,000 miles on it. It now has over 71,000 miles. I love the way that it sits up high, like a full size pickup. It does create a problem for short or physically challenged people getting in and out however. I had problems with the transmission from the time I bought the truck, and took it back to the dealer at least three times only to be told that nothing was wrong with the transmission. (I have a feeling they just felt they could pull one over on a single woman). Finally, when I moved to another state, I took it to a different dealer and they found what was wrong with the transmission and fixed it. They told me that they couldn't understand why the other dealer hadn't fixed it since there had been a technical bulletin outlining the problem in 2005. Other than that, the truck has not ever given me any problems. Most of the miles that I have put on the truck have been highway miles. On the highway, I average about 22 miles per gallon. The truck rides well, and the seats are comfortable to me. However, the extended cab portion comes equipped with jump seats, which are useless in my opinion. It also is very difficult to get in and out of the back seat, or to retrieve items from back there. All in all, it's been a great truck and I love it.

Pros: Looks great, decent mileage

Cons: Jump seats in back, difficult  to get in back seat; had transmission problems

Rangers Rock — great truck, very durable. i've been hit by a couple cars and it still drives fine. does a great job with 4x4, milage is easily affected by how you drive, i get from 15-19 mpg. the 4l has a ton of power :D easy to get a good sound system into.

Pros: good power, durable

Cons: gas milage

Charlie The Red Ranger — Great style and capabilities, tons of torque, limited slip rear axle, big v-6, fun to drive. got manual windows, locks, and mirrors, but it's not that bad. Got a good deal on it, $11K with less than 50K miles, hoping to take it off-road at some point and test its capabilities.

Pros: Style, power, fun

Cons: Manual gizmos

Xl Ranger — Love the sporty little 4-banger. Get good gas mileage (bout 22-24 mpg) and good get up and go for a 4-cyl. Little cramped sometimes. Just typical maintanence with oil changes etc. The truck is very very fun to drive and handles real nice for being a truck. Future plans are a lift and bigger tires.

Pros: Good gas mileage. Fun to drive

Cons: SMALL!!!

Ford Ranger Edge — for a 3.0l V6 it isn't bad. Pulls what i have to gets 20mpg, and jumps nicely to. takes a beating and will not stop. a/c gets cold quick, acceleration isn't bad for a small V6, build quality is good considering it's the cheap model, maintenance and mpg is average for small size truck (takes 6 quarts of oil wear my 5.9l V8 dodge only took 5). 5spd manual is great to drive, love the handling and the supension only wish there was more after market crowd

Pros: great a/c, durable, good mpg

Cons: 3.0, 2wd,

Fun To Drive And Gets Attention For Being A Ranger — Nice trucks from the factory. Much more fun than a full size and quicker than a full size from the factory, compared to a F-150. Even the 4.0 is a little doggish though. A couple bolt ons and they will move though. Easy to park, comfortable, only gets about 17mpg from the factory. Can't hull many people or very much cargo. Great for around town and picking up things like appliances, very comfortable with 2 people, 3 is fine for short distances.

Pros: Cheaper then some mid-sizes much more affordable than full size. FUN!! puts a smile on your face when you blow past ricers that think they are fast.

Cons: Can't haul many people or heavy loads, gas mileage isn't great.

Ranger Danger — Great truck with the 4.0L engine, but it could always use the 4.6L V8 if Ford would offer it in the Ranger.

Pros: Great color, great interior, great engine, people always think its new when its clean, and comfortable seats.

Cons: Needs rear disc breaks instead of drum and take the governor off 90mph!
