Review of the 1997 Ford Ranger

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Great looking compact truck with a cornucopia of engine choices and options.

  • Cons

    We wish the base engine were stronger, and that a third door was offered.

Not bad

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB

Had the truck for a little over a year, put almost 12,000 miles on it and not a hitch. Bought it with 142,000 and was a bit weary, but got a great cost and I know the Ranger reputation to be good.

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB

I've had a lot of fun with this truck. But heads up on a few of the things listed below. I have owned it for 5 years and now have 120 thousand miles on it. I guess I can't be too hard on it.




Great small truck

Trouble free since we bought it. Great small truck that tows well. Would not hesitate to buy another ranger in the future




My review

Vehicle: 1997 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB

This vehicle is one of the worst I've ever had. I had to get a complete tune up at 45,000 miles. I will never own another Ford. I also had to replace the mechanism that keeps the seat from falling back.
