2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab Edge Plus 4WD Flareside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

So far I really like it. It handles well, No problems, nice to drive. Gas hasn't killed me yet. Could be better I guess.


Favorite Features

Hey it's a truck. Waiting to try the 4 wheel drive in the snow.


Suggested Improvements

You would think that because it's a truck you might have room to put something, Don't think of putting it in the cab, there is like no where to put anything but drink cups (has 5 of them). Can't hold a roll of paper towels.

2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab Edge Plus 2WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This vehicle has been trouble free mechanically. The plastic bed rails were replace twice during warranty because they cracked. The second replacement set has remained good. This vehicle has stiff suspension, but it provides corning that is better than any pickup I have ever had, and I have had five. The 4 liter V6 is big power for this size truck, and gets 20 mpg with mixed freeway/city streets driving.


Favorite Features

Nice interior, great sound system.


Suggested Improvements

None.

2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab Edge 2WD Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Absolutely stellar. This was the first vehicle I have ever purchased new and it did not disappoint. I owned it for 3 years, only needed a tensioner replaced. Runs perfect and shows no sign of stopping. People knock the Ranger for its 'outdated style' but I could not disagree more, I believe it has the look of a real pickup with the most important 'modern improvements' (i.e. engine, transmission, interior, electronics etc.). In fact I am trading mine in for a new 2005 Ranger soon.


Favorite Features

Pretty much everything.


Suggested Improvements

Suspension in the 4x2 rides real rough, engine power on the 3.0L V6. The seats stink for long drives (3+ hours).

2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Styleside SB w/393A (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I loved my Ranger when I bought it. It had under 65,000 miles. It was great to drive and was great off road. The rear doors would rattle a lot even though they were closed very tightly. Only problem is after a week of owning it, I had to take it into the shop already. The rear wheels constantly lock in place. A problem for most owners of the Ranger. It was in the shop at least 3 times for that issue. A few months later it was in the shop again for the transmission. Out of the blue the transmission blew a gasket so I lost third gear. Apparently another common problem.


Favorite Features

4x4 is great off road or in the snow. I loved the 4.0L V6, and the interior is very nice for a truck.


Suggested Improvements

Take a look at a new transmission, and look at the design of the rear wheel drums/brake System! Look at ways to stop rattles in rear doors.

2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab XLT Appearance 2WD Flareside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Great little truck, never had any major problems with it, good gas mileage.


Favorite Features

Controls are easy to reach, seats are comfy on long trips.


Suggested Improvements

3rd door should be standard on any extended cab. Without it, it makes getting things in and out of extended area very difficult, not much room to maneuver.
