Review of the 2000 Ford Ranger

  • Despite its substantial age, the 2000 Ford Ranger is still one of the wiser choices in the compact truck market.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Four-door entry, five-speed automatic and optional flexible fuel/electric powertrains, thoughtful interior.

  • Cons

    Room in extended-cab area isn't enough for adults, questionable front-end styling.

  • What's New for 2000

    For 2000, the 2WD can be had with a "Trailhead" off-road style suspension package complete with larger tires and wheels, giving it the tough look of its 4WD cousin. All 2000 Ford Ranger models have new wheel designs, and the XLT 4WD Off-Road Group receives a stainless-steel front-suspension skid plate.

Great little truck

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB

Awesome truck! I bought it used and lost it in a bad wreck today. Truck I found out the hard way was built incredibly well, and it truthfully saved my four-year-old's and my life in a head-on collision. Over the years, I would maintain the truck and it just kept putting down the road. Gas mileage was about 20MPG and served as a great lightweight utility and commute truck. Overall, it was an amazing truck and will be missed.




I love it..

I have had fun driving this truck. My only complaint is the gallon/miles for gas. I love the hinged doors, gives you plenty of room. The 2 things I do not like are the rattling around the glove box area, and it is a little sluggish with only a 3.0 V6 in it.

My truck handles good for a truck, more like a car. I like the styling of the body without pinstriping or door trim. Gas milage is decent for a truck. The truck is generally fun to drive. I have had no major problems mechanically or otherwise to date.
