After Highschool graduation it was time to upgrade over my 86 Silverado. I knew for a while I wanted a Ranger, Im impressed with way my truck handles and drives. The 3.0 is a good mixture of performance and fuel effiency. Its a solid little truck, that looks as good as it drives. The extended cab is perfect for transporting all my gear to and from school. It can hold all my fishing and camping supplies inside, out of the elemets. The Edge package gives it an awesome stance. I opted for the 2 wheel drive, over the 4 simply for the fact that I dont plan on doing any serious off-roading in it.I upgraded the head unit and rear speakers, simply because Im going through my loud music phase.
The bold styling all around with the Edge package adds to appeal. The interior is superb, and comfortable. The jump seats neatly fold away for plenty of space behind the front seats.
It's a solid truck all the way around. If your looking for a weekend warrior the 4wd will be better. The milage is pretty good for a small truck, but all the talk these days is milage. Gets 2 thumbs up from me.
Honestly, I was out looking at
a Tacoma but just couldn't get over
that front end and I found the Toyota
dealers were just too proud of their
trucks. Went by the Ford dealer on the
way home and set my eyes on a loaded
Ranger Edge. I got more serious when I
found out my brother-in-law had a 2000
Ranger with 87,000 miles and the only
problem he's encountered has been a
sensor replacement, $34.00. I was
really sold when the dealer came $4000
off the list. Drove it back to St.
Louis that same week end and by the end
of the trip, I noticed the truck really
coming alive with personality, looks,
handling. Matched with the auto and
4.10 ratio gears you c
Ride, Ford quality.. Let's face it - if
you want a truck there's only one.
ive had many trucks before but this one
is my favorite one. Gas mileage is
better than the 4.0 but not hardly the
power though. very fun to drive this
truck. it has a tight sporty feel and
it has plenty of ground clearance.
