2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
Purchased USED,had 25000 on odometer.
Enemic engine to say the least. Screams
on the interstate, with a moderate load
I'm being passed by 18 wheelers, with
my foot mashed to the firewall. I
always thought Ford made the Ranger but
I'm now convinced Mazda makes it. One
can not compare it to the Chevie S-10,
I've owned three S-10 and this is my
First and Last Ranger. The Chevie V-6
is twice the engine the Ranger has...
As for creature comforts, Ford should
borrow an S-10 and maybe copy half
their interior design, starting with
ease of getting into the back of the
extended cab.Do yourself a favor, Drive
an S-10 then the Ranger, you won't go
Ford, I promise you.
Exterior looks, that is if you judge a
book by it's cover.
Copy the S-10 creature comforts in the
cab interior and give it a real engine.
