1990 Ford Ranger XLT SB is the best truck in its class. I've owe this truck for 5 years now and it has been a great investment. My truck has well over 1,000,000 miles and continues to purr like a kitten. Yet, she is tough like a Tank. I am not surprised to see as many as I do still on the road! You couldn't give me another truck! Gas mileage is great, maintenance, when necessary is inexpensive and she just continues to turn heads wherever I take her. All offers are quickly turned down as I will never part with her........1990 Ford Ranger XLT IS Built Ford Tough and is the best truck in its class ever built........second to none.
I bought my Ranger brand new when I was 18. It's the only vehicle I've ever owned. Now, I'm 44 and it still runs great. My inspections only cost $7, because vehicles over 25 years old only have to have the safety inspection done--no emissions test.
This truck has stood the test of time. I've had two offers on it, even though I'm not selling it.
I got this truck from my father in 2006 as he purchased it new. 1990 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab, 4.0 Liter VORTEC Engine, Automatic. It rides very good, it is comfortable, gas milage is great as it gets about 25 MPG HWY and 20 MPG in City.
I bought this Ranger as an used vehicle in 2003; since then I've put just under 100,000 miles on it. It's a XLT regular cab with a long bed and the 4.0 V6/automatic. While not necessarily in the market for a truck, I needed a vehicle to drive, and it was the right price.
For the most part, it is true that these things last forever and that these things are hard to kill. However, unless they are taken care of better than perfectly, they have a tendency to attract dents and rust like a magnet.
Even though this was an XLT, the interior fabric and carpet is very hard-wearing (it helps that mine had dark-tinted windows).
Fairly good visibility.
Comfortable seats (this one had the split-folding cloth bench seat)
For those who want trucks, make them again!
Better rust protection (rust protection to begin with?)
Single-piece opening rear window (not the split in the rearview mirror)
Cupholders (there are none)
