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


Review

Rolled the same vehicle twice. Although I'm still alive to talk about it (the roof is capable of withstanding a rollover), the vehicle is way too light in the rear. Even with sandbags, the vehicle is too prone to losing traction, breaking loose and rolling over while skidding. Although there is plenty of important legroom, the ground clearance and approach/departure angles are great (allowing you to go places with it), the body is too light and there's no weight and traction in the rear end. Ford really needs to redesign the Ranger to overcome those major setbacks.


Favorite Features

Decent and quiet engine, OK truck ride and decent steering (does not offset the light and loose rear end though). Good interior.


Suggested Improvements

There has to be a way of designing a truck with both ground clearance and a rear end with traction.

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


Review

Its been an overall solid truck. Problems have been: sensor replacments, wildly inaccurate fuel gauge (these things have been around for 100 years, think they could get it right?), slight pinging when a/c is on and the power windows jump like hell when putting them down.


Favorite Features

cd player, ground clearance, low end torque


Suggested Improvements

better seating arrangement in rear, higher quality plastic bed rails, fix the window and fuel gauge problems
