A good balance of features and cost

ReviewThis 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 FeaturesSteering 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 FeaturesA 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.
