2003 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XLT Value 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Awesome Truck so far. the SOHC 4.0 has
great power and towing capacity. Got
the "Value" package more for appearance
than to save money, as I got mine
loaded with options. The only thing I
see missing is the carpet and black
fender flares which gives the truck
cleaner lines and a better look IMHO
so you get an XLT with chrome with the
Edge interior. So far the truck has
been reliable smooth and really fun to
drive. 4WD with limited slip 4.10 axle
and this thing goes just about
anywhere. I also got the 5spd auto wich
is an amazing match to the SOHC 4.0 the
feel of a solid 5spd manual without the
work or hassle.
Looks, Price, Powerful 4.0, has more
towing capacity than the 2003 F150 with
triton 4.6 V8 I was considering. Check
the books, I'm serious! You get FX4
wheels with the Value package.
Illuminated power window and lock
switches, Fog lights as an option for
My experience has been good so far.I
just have a few complaints......It
seems to lean to the left (annoying)
and I get a vibration on accell,it
sometimes feels squirely on the
highway,feathers tires way before it
should (before 3,000 miles). hopefully
the dealer will correct these
issues.But,overall I am satisfied with
my Ranger "POWERHOUSE".
Some of my favorite features are...the
strong 4.0 liter under the hood,the
stereo system is awesome for a stock
unit,the interior colors are
perfect,and probably the
coolest....this truck will literaly
leave a chevy 4.3 vortec "IN THE DUST"
trust me I have done it.
Do something with the
suspension,correct the problem that
wears tires so fast!
My last truck was a Dakota and I was
looking for one again. I test drove the
edge and couldn't get it out of my
mind. The Dakota ended up being out of
my price range new- and I couldn't see
going used if I could afford a new edge
(with rebates). My sonic blue Edge is
everything my old Dakota wasn't. I've
only had it for 4 months but I am
really impressed! I am confident of
this truck's abilities under any
conditions. If it keeps up its
relibility for the nest 3-4 years I
will no question buy another Ranger!
The styling is awesome. The Chevy s-
10's all look thrown together just to
impress- The edge looks good- and is
I would like to see an 8 cyl model with
crew cab in about 3-4 years so I can
buy one at that time!
