One Of The Best Smaller Truck — This truck is a nice looking truck,Have had no repairs on this truck.The cost on maintenance is very low. The interior nice with the gray and black,the performance is good. Great gas miles on the ranger. Just in all a nice truck to own and drive.

Ford Build Tough ! — Good performance, its not a F1 but ford a truck its way better than lots of them. Even while towing a friend braking in downhill is really good ( friend has V8 dakota ). They're tough and im not gentle with him in offroad, they are good looking and best truck to drift with during winter.

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

Pros: Perfect in the city, easy to park , and really tough and good performence offroad

Cons: Need more place ( Enough for 4 ppls

A Excellent Value For Money — Performance: Great was really surprised with diesel. Braking is good but tends to fade under heavy braking and off road driving. handling is good for its size. its got the normal ford squeaky suspension mounts and the top section off the dash rattles a bit. Its got a very muscular appearance which i love. i get about 760 km on a 80liter tank of diesel maintenance isn't to expensive. And its a lot of fun to drive but on sand and gravel roads it starts coming alive.

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

Pros: appearance

Cons: ground clearance

Great Little Work Horse, Good Gas Mileage. — Not very fast but at the end of the day... its a work truck and I'd give it 5 stars for that. Its built tough, and has been put through its paces. Exterior is ok. I got the pick up bed sprayed with colour matched Line-x bedline both inside the bed and outside. along with tool boxes and ladder rack. Pretty cheap to run on gas, compared to the avergage canadian truck. Great 2 person truck, plenty of room, and enough room to store things in behind the front seats. Once all my equipment is off the truck, its nippy and pretty quick.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap to run, good work horse!!

Cons: Only big enough for 2 men.

Very Good Truck With The Only Minus Being The Gas Mileage — I like the powerful V6 engine and quick acceleration and the ability to haul that I didn't have in the Mazda. My only complaint is that the gas mileage could be better but with a pickup truck with a 4.0l V6 and 4.10 gear ratio in the rear poor mileage is to be expected. It is a very fun vehicle to drive because for a pickup truck it handles quite well with its rack and pinion steering.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Powerful engine, strong, and reliable

Cons: Gas mileage

Danger Ranger — It's the only compact truck left other than the Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon. The 2.3 litre four cylinder runs with merry abandon and gets 23.5 mpg in HARD driving. The truck wasn't very responsive to throttle inputs until I put a Flowmaster 50 series muffler with dual outlets, sounds great also. The manual transmission isn't smooth but could be worse. Handling is good, rear axle sidestep mid-turn is inevitable but not dangerous. It's a solid and cheap truck that might be worth more than I'm paying for it. I bought it new with 10 miles on the odometer and had one problem; the turn signal stalk split at the mold seam at about 12,000 miles. The seats are functional and have minimal support for anything over 5/10ths in turns. Other than that it's a good little truck that won't be replaced anytime soon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good handling for a truck, decent mpg's, sticker price (and rebates)

Cons: Seats leave something to be desired, ditto crosswind stability

I Am Pleased To Drive The Ranger — I could not ask for a better made truck. I pull a 13 foot Ventura trailer with ease, good mileage in the city and a nice ride. I love the truck. I used to drive foreign cars but never again! Ford for me!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quality small truck

Cons: No Cruise

I Love It. — Like all new Fords, the brakes 'chirp' at only 20,000 miles of wear. The gas mileage is roughly around 17-20 mpg. The truck was a bit pricey for being so small though. But it was worth it. Its really hard to keep clean though with it being black.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you want a truck but don't need anything as big as an F-150.

Cons: Ford brakes and transmission

Something I feel is that car manufacturers dont want you to be comfortable in a small pick up and they are hoping to direct you to one of their pricey behemoths . The Ranger is an example of this . Th... Read More
