Review of the 1998 Ford Ranger

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multiple engine choices. Decent performance. Nice price.

  • Cons

    Don't like new front-end styling.

  • What's New for 1998

    The 1998 Ford Ranger gets new sheet metal, a new grille and revised headlamps. The wheelbase on regular cab models has been stretched to provide more cabin room and the displacement of the base engine has been increased. A short- and long-arm (SLA) suspension replaces the Twin-I-Beam suspension found on last year's models. A four-door Ranger join the lineup midyear.

Vehicle: 1998 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB

Well this was my second Ranger and this one was a total piece of junk. Replaced an alternator, ball joints, A/C compressor kicks off and on every 20 seconds. Door Ajar light comes on at least every other time i drive it.Freeze plugs have rusted out, leaks oil, 15mpg for a V6?!?!? Really? The stock radio is bad.
