1996 Ford Ranger Extended Cab XL 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I love my truck. I bought it as a powered wheelbarrow for hauling stuff to the dump and from Home Depot. So I bought one w/ very few creature comforts, but the thing is very comfortable to drive and great for long trips. Very comfortable seats for stock ones.


Favorite Features

The solid feel of the truck.


Suggested Improvements

The cupholders w/ their snap in size adjustments are poorly designed. The 4L engine is small, but I knew that going into it.

Review

I drove this truck back and forth from MD to NC every weekend for 2 years and never had a problem with it. I've had it for 5 years, bought it used. The only thing I've had to recently replace were the tires.

Review

I've now owned my Ranger for 4 years and through Minnesota Winters of -10 to -15 below zero at nights it always starts and runs very well. It has always been a very reliable truck. It has a nicely designed dash when speaking of controls for air,heat and they work well too.The real only negative is I have had off and on issues with my check engine light turning on and I have it checked and they can't make sense of it. I have had 3 different shops look into this issue and get nowhere.


Favorite Features

Reliability,Dash controls,good overall Quality.


Suggested Improvements

I know that Ford and all the companies have the technology now they just have to use it.The truck gets poor mileage and they know it.I do have the 4.0 which is only a Max Hp of 160. There is no reason this truck can't get 25 Mpg overall.
