2004 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XLT Value 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I drive a mix of heavy freeway and city
streets, about 70 miles/day, and have
averaged a very consistent 19.5 MPG in
this truck..I'm pleasantly surprised
given the great acceleration with this
truck. It has a 5 speed, and 4.10 rear
end with traction lock. Overall, I'm
very happy. Even the paint job was
flawless from the factory. I've noticed
that for 2005 they got rid of the Value
package. That's too bad, it was a
great deal in '04. You should know
that the engine has a limiter at about
95 miles/hour. In areas where the
speed limit is 75, and many drivers are
going 80 to 85, that limit was scary
the first time I reached it.


Best Features

The 4.0 sounds good, accelerates great. The fit and finish is excellent.


Worst Features

Wish I had gotten the 4 door supercab rather than the two door. Putting large objects in the back is rough or impossible. The sound system is not great...muddy bass. Also, the doors do sound tinny (I read this in another reviewers note...guess I'm not the only one.)

Review

the Electrical Plug for the Trailer
Hitch should be a place you can easly
see, Second, The external sound could
be damped in the doors a little more.
Other than that the truck is a sweet
runing, great handling and lots of fun
to be in any time of Truck.


Best Features

The Great View from cab, and seat belts that will fit an adult.


Worst Features

Wire harness could be more in the open. Sound deaden the doors. The Wheel well should have 2" flairs if there is a towing package due to tire size requirements.

Review

I love this truck. It drives smooth and
it is very powerful. The only thing I
would change would to make it get
better fuel economy. Other than that I
am pleased with my new Ranger.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the 4.0L engine. It's powerful and responsive. The sound system is suprisingly good as well.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy.
