1997 Ford Ranger Extended Cab XLT 2dr Extended Cab Stepside SB


Review

This truck has over 200,000 hard
miles on it, and it still runs great. It
never had much power, but it can do
what it is called upon to.


Best Features

Great reliability. Almost no unscheduled service.


Worst Features

Manual tranny's a bit slow-shifting. Exterior manual mirrors are too small.

Review

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


Best Features

The ride is smooth and the comfort level is very high. I have the 4.0 v-6 and it has plenty of power. I would not suggest the four banger as they are a little under powered.


Worst Features

A hybrid in the future would be nice
