Between my wife, daughter, and I, we
have owned 7 Rangers since 1990. When
shopping for a new vehicle, we test
drove dozens of new cars with our one
and only preference being the
vehicle's comfort of ride (seat
comfort as well as handling comfort).
Only the FX4 Level II had good
handling as well as the seat comfort
we want for traveling 12-16 hours a
We continue to shop for new cars
(including the new 2004 Level II), but
we have not yet found any vehicle that
gives as good of performance,
handling, dependability, and
comfortable seating all in one
Comfortable seating, five speed
automatic transmission, handling,
perky engine performance, and Ford's
always good dependability.
I personally would like to see a 351
V8 made available (a 428 may be
overkill on the front suspension!).
