2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Level II 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
First small pickup I have ever owned.
Good performance on the highway and on
twisty mountain roads. Have not taken
it off-road. Mine is a 5-speed
manual. Good shifting, smooth clutch
and excellent take-off with the 4.10
rear end. Actually could use a better
fifth gear ratio. 5th is a little too
close to 4th for long highway driving.
Alcoa rims and BF Goodrich tires. The
use of the stainless trim around the
shift and x-fer case stalks
better fuel economy and better 5th
gear overdrive ratio, turns more than
2500 rpms and 65 mph.
This is my 2nd Ranger. I traded in a
1994 with 170,000 miles on it and it
was still running strong. I like the
2003 overall. It rides a little rough
on bumpy pavement as trucks do. I
really like the rear doors. The gas
mileage is 22mpg with a 3.55 Limited
Slip Differential. I've had it for
three weeks and 2700 miles and so far
1. Rear Doors, 4.0l engine,
Other than a smoother ride it's a
great truck and I like it.
A great basic truck with so much
more. I needed a truck for light
hauling, after looking at the compition
it was a no brainer. The xlt ranger
with 4 wheel abs (ebd), cd player, ac,
center consol with 3 cupholders, mats,
chrome wheels, and much much more, cost
around 10900. The 5 speed is responsive
and the 15 inch tires look great. If
you need a truck see me at curry ford I
buy and drive what I sell.
