2002 Ford Ranger Edge 2dr Regular Cab (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased the edge because I needed the utility of a truck. I have been very pleased with the truck. It drives nice, on and off road, it hauls what I need, and gets me where I need to go---that's what a truck is for. It isn't fast with the 3.0 though, but it is enough.
Ride height, looks, build quality.
More power, argh!, argh!, argh!, as Tim Allen might say
