4.0L, 5-spd. Auto. Trans, A/C, 4WD.
Coming off 2 excellent Toyota trucks,
the Ford is WAY more truck for the
money. Build quality is equal to that
of Toyota and performance, ride, and
ruggedness surpasses Toyota.
Long-term quality is the only question,
but Consumer Reports rates the Ranger
equal to the Tacoma.
Love this truck. Price, performance,
quality, ride - everything. Did switch
truck over to synthetic fluids @750
Quiet ride, power, smooth transmission,
on-the-fly 4WD, excellent A/C (better
than Toyota). Gas mileage is better
than manufacturer specs.
Inside & outside overall looks
(Toyota's better style), but you cannot
have everything. Jump seats in the
back as part of standard package.
