1994 Ford Ranger Extended Cab XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I love this truck. I bought it in October of 2007. It currently has 264000 miles on it and it's still on its first engine and transmission. It has many many more miles to come. It hasn't given me hardly any trouble at all and I haven't done any repairs besides ordinary preventative maintainance. Still runs and drives like new and has no mechanical problems.


Best Features

Easy to use interior, comfortable, 5- speed manual makes it fun to drive. large tires (its a 4x4) make it look tough, manual locking hubs are really strong, the 4.0 liter v-6s low-end torque, and how Ford built these trucks to last. They can easily reach 300000 miles and beyond


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, and putting in airbags for that year would have been nice. Other than that it's great.

1994 Ford Ranger Extended Cab STX 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I bought this truck new in '94 and I used it every day for 10 years until I got a family minivan. I have towed concrete mixers, hauled scrap and lumber, use it weekly to carry stuff to the dump. I carried the kids in the extended cab (when they were little, not a lot of room there.) The truck never let me down and today I still have it (though it's semi-retired)and use it 3-4 times a month to go to the dump. It has 167,000 miles on it and now my daughter just got her lisense and she drives it daily to school and about. It still gets 22+MPG. Never did more than routine maint and replaced the clutch 2x. What a great investment in 1994!


Best Features

Hauls a lot for its size and never needs maintenance.


Worst Features

I'm 6'3", 220lbs so I'd like to see more cab height and firmer seats.

Review

I first took possession of my 1994 Ford Ranger XLT on 3/3/04. Overall, the truck has been quite reliable. In the almost 2 years I've had it, I have replaced the starter, idler pulley, fan belt, (broke when pulley seized), and rear leaf spring mounts. It currently has a power steering leak, and needs brakes, that's it. The total amount for all my repairs is about $300 over 2 years; not bad for an 11 year old truck.


Best Features

The 4 liter V6 and the 5 speed manual transmission provide plenty of pep on the highway, and I really enjoying driving it. The extended cab and bucket seats allow my taller passengers to stretch their legs, while a guy my size can still drive.


Worst Features

The interior of the vehicle could be improved as follows: console between the seats, dual outlet defroster (mine is center output), and more lighter/power outlets. Exterior: tie downs in the bed (if any) are obscured by the bedliner.

1994 Ford Ranger Extended Cab XL 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

This has been the best vehicle I've ever owned. After 157,000 miles (mostly commuting), I've not had a single mechanical failure. My only expenses have been maintenance. I drove it on a 12 hour trip and it was as comfortable as any car I've ever driven.


Best Features

Reliable, economical.
