I bought this truck about a year ago and I love it. It has the 4.0 liter sohc V6 engine which has plenty of power and is very reliable (except the alternator goes a little wacky sometimes - the plug going to the voltage regulator goes bad sometimes). But I still wish Ford would make the 4.6 liter v8 available for the Ranger.
Very nice looking truck, and very reliable.
Make the 4.6 liter available. Improve charging system.
2002 Ford Ranger Edge 4dr SuperCab 4WD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Base model with manual transmission & no extras, which makes me very happy now with the price of gas. My fourth small pickup, and the best by far for comfort, fuel economy and handling. Have not missed the 4 wheel drive at all.
Comfortable seats, ABS brakes, fuel economy in high 20's, nice handling truck, base CD sound system is great.
2002 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I have owned this truck for a year now. It has been very dependable and I have not had to have any major repairs done. My truck is a swb regular cab, 2WD, but has a V-6 with a 5-speed manual transmission. One of the best trucks I have ever owned. Good gas mileage. Very comfortable interior, but a little cramped. Fun to drive.
