I am very pleased with my the Ranger. Ford did a great job with the design of the truck in regards to the interior and exterior. I would give the truck a B+ to A- if grades were allowed. If you are looking for a dependable small truck, I would definately recommend the 2001 Ford Ranger.
More comfortable seats and elbow rest, larger extended cab area to seat adults, 4 doors, not 3 1/2 doors (2 regular doors and 2 suicide doors on the present), and a place to set tailgate in bed when it is removed.
