1997 Ford Ranger STX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I enjoy my Ranger. It has a V6 4.0L with 4 wheel drive. It's a little weak in acceleration but plenty of power for hauling a load. It pulls a heavy trailer load better than my V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Best Features

The look of it! Very aggressive look for a little truck.


Worst Features

Better acceleration.

1997 Ford Ranger STX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I was told before buying that it was under powered. But I have found the 4.0L engine to have plenty of power. The seats are very comfortable.Gas mileage could be a bit better but I don't baby my vehicles either. This is my first 4x4 and I will never do without 4wd again. The only repairs I have had in the 2 years I have owned this truck is replacement of a couple of sensors in the EGR system and the 2 front u-joints on the front axles have been replaced. I have been told that the u-joints usually need replaced at around 75000 mi and mine lasted 87000 so I can't complain.


Best Features

auto locking hubs for the 4x4, very good seats, great factory sound system, the fit and finish of exterior that with a little care has this truck still looking like it just rolled off of the show room.
