It is not a car. It is a truck. One of the best built trucks ever made.

Overall:

This Truck is a decent vehicle, depending on its condition. This truck uses old school tech unlike a lot of more modern vehicles, which makes it feel more rugged. The engine produces enough power to do what you want, and the cab and bed have plenty of room to store your tools. This truck reminds me of the old Nissans its hard to put down and will continue to serve for years.

A Great Small Truck With Many Uses And Long Life. —

Equipped with a manual transmission, you won't find a better light truck. Aside from the great looks it has a lot to offer. It's build very solid and you can feel it just from driving. Nothing feels out of touch to the driver. Plenty of interior room as long as you are in the front, however taller passengers should be in front. If you do have the manual, you're front middle seat is just an arm rest. If you have the option, go for the third door. Maintenance was very simple and cheap for a truck. I never had an issue towing, off-roading, or carrying cargo. The 4.0 V6 gives you plenty of power for whatever you'd need, and can be easily increased for those of us who can't get enough. The prices on these do vary greatly, but they are reasonable and worth every penny. Older and higher mileage versions, or Mazda B versions for that matter, are still worth the look/buy. Fuel economy ranges, but I manged 20/21 Highway with 16 average in the city. These trucks are great and have so much to give and just keep going on and on. I highly recommend a Ranger.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Versatile, Reliable, Stylish, Fun

Cons: Taller passengers can be a problem, and don't even bother with three adults if you have a manual.

Quality Vehicle — Nice truck but sucks on gas mileage. Not the best for city use. sure can take a beating though. I actually used to drive a '97 model when i first got my license. My wife and I had our first date at a drive in movie on a matress in the bed...ahh memories! Dont underestimate the 4-cyl engine in these things. They are amazing motors.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great light duty truck.

Cons: avoid city driving for gas mileage

More Than Just A Pretty Face — The exterior is eyecatching, the interior not so much. Works great and is built for off raoding despite how it looks. The skid plates under the engine, trans and fuel tank are a pretty good clue. The LSD in the rear and electronic locking front diff is another hint..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tougher than it looks

Cons: interior

Most Popular Mid-size... I Understand Why! — I love my Ranger, the 3.0L plus the 5 speed is great on gas, it takes heavy loads like a champ, Been driving it more then a year and a half and I can't stop loving to drive it, it's comfy on road trips, and other then the pineon seal the maintenance has been simple! This truck is great and for anyone looking for a no b**s**t mid-size the ranger is the way to go!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Truck in a small package

Cons: It is somewhat out-dated

I Miss It! — 2006, bright red, XLT, 4x4, 5 speed, with the improved 4.0L V6. Who could ask for anything more in a Ford Ranger? This truck lasted me 3 years, 3 accidents, and many trips to Maine. I only had minor problems with it. A tempermental fuel shutoff switch, a bad hub, and driveshaft Ujoints. All easily fixed and cheap enough. And all attributed to how I drove this thing. I lost her to a tree in January.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, plenty of power for a compact pickup, off road capable.

Cons: Size. Not a very big truck, with a smaller payload than most.
