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


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.
