The Tippy Truck
By chage on
Vehicle2001 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Flareside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewRolled 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.
Best FeaturesDecent and quiet engine, OK truck ride and decent steering (does not offset the light and loose rear end though). Good interior.
Worst FeaturesThere has to be a way of designing a truck with both ground clearance and a rear end with traction.
