2003 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my second ranger.
The first 1998 Ranger XLT took a
pretty good side/front impact at about
50 mph from a C Tahoe and the airbags
deployed and everything was fine.(My
poor ranger was totaled).
I did not plan on buying another
ranger, but I went to my local ford
dealership and the first one I saw was
a Ranger Edge 3 litre(BRIGHTE RED w/5
speed auto).I Love It.


Best Features

5 Speed Automatic transmission.Previous model was a manual.Bad news in traffic. Maybe I am comparing apples to oranges. 2.3 ltr M 5 spd to 3.0.ltr A 5 spd.


Worst Features

Needs better shocks.Maybe a stiffer front torsion bar. Overall I like my Ranger and am going to by an Edge for my wife to replace an aging but still very quick and agile '97 Dodge Neon.(70,000 miles)

2003 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my second Ranger, went with the
extended cab and 3.0L V-6 vs the
previous 4 banger and standard cab.
Surprised at the improvement in
acceleration. Always like the steering
and suspension. Extended cab is the
only way to go, learned that fact the
hard way. Got the truck with a $4K
rebate, that really sealed the deal.
The XLT package added numerous
features, this truck came with power
everything, included keyless entry.
Ford also had a good deal on an
extended warranty, added three more
years at 72K miles for around $1,300.
No problems to date.


Best Features

Steering response, ride quality and extra space the extended cab provides. Looks good from any angle, easy to drive and fits in a standard parking space and our crowded garage. A/C works fast, a critical need in Florida. Still too new to rate MPG.


Worst Features

A K&N air filter should be standard equipment, that would improve engine response at low speeds. Add a locking tailgate, move the radio controls away from the gear selector, partially obstructed when in drive. Provide four keys at the point of sale.

Review


If you are tall like me, the supercab
is the way to go. Even with the seats
all the way back you still have plenty
of room to fit a suitcase or groceries
with ease. However, it isn't very
comfortable for an adult...Children fit
nicely though.

The acceleration is very nice! Merging
into busy traffic or passing that slow
driver in the fast lane isn't as nerve
racking as driving in a 4 cylinder
would be.

Great buy!!!


Best Features

Roomy (Great for tall people) Good power options (windows, locks, mirrors) Standard V6 engine in the supercab. Nice exterior Comfortable ride. Anti Theft system Fun to drive, nice feel.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage Standard side air bags Standard "third door" to make it easier to get in and out of back.

Review

Nice truck...the $3k back from Ford and
dealer $ made the truck a great buy. 5
speed works well with the 3.0 l
engine. AC and Heat are fast! So far
no problems and it was nice that Ford
called twice to make sure all is well.
Engine layout is logical and easy to
access from top and bottom. No wind
noice....very strong method of securing
the window.


Best Features

Good build, great price, 5-speed auto, air, cd-player


Worst Features

heated back glass, softer arm rest/storage unit.
