This is my second ranger.
The first 1998 Ranger XLT took a
pretty good side/front impact at about
50 mph from a C Tahoe and the airbags
deployed and everything was fine.(My
poor ranger was totaled).
I did not plan on buying another
ranger, but I went to my local ford
dealership and the first one I saw was
a Ranger Edge 3 litre(BRIGHTE RED w/5
speed auto).I Love It.
5 Speed Automatic
transmission.Previous model was a
manual.Bad news in traffic.
Maybe I am comparing apples to oranges.
2.3 ltr M 5 spd to 3.0.ltr A 5 spd.
Needs better shocks.Maybe a stiffer
front torsion bar.
Overall I like my Ranger and am going
to by an Edge for my wife to replace
an aging but still very quick and
agile '97 Dodge Neon.(70,000 miles)
