1998 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

This truck is great! 3.0L V6 is incredibly reliable, and powerful enough for all basic tasks. Off Road package really helps when four wheeling. Front grille looks tough, just like a Ford should be. Rear hops around a little bit, could use a little more weight. 4x4 works seamlessly, but is overcomplicated, expensive to repair, and not incredibly strong. Auto tranny is alright, could be beefed up a little, but it keeps the engine in the right RPM range. Mileage is great with the 3.0, and it is an incredibly reliable little engine. Overall, Great truck!!!

Best Features

Suspension stance, alloy wheels, RELIABLE engine, great new looks, skidplating, easy to use interior.

Worst Features

Offer better tires on Off Road package, offer manual hubs and t-case.
