2004 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Level II 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I just bought a 2003 ford ranger fx4 level 2 and i love it. I have been driving it back and forth to work and i have done some off roading and it does not get stuck and i have tried. I does me well.


Favorite Features

I love the whole truck and i would not chnage much.


Suggested Improvements

Make the cab larger so that you can acctually fit four full grown adult males in the truck comforterably. Lift the truck another 2-4 inches. Overall make the truck a bit larger but not too much.

2004 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XLT Rwd Styleside LB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This little Ranger gives a big bang for the buck. I got a 3000 rebate and a dealer discount. FInal price was around 13,500, List was 19,500. I enjoy the ride, fuel consumption, and ability to haul wood. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Review

I love the engine in this model. I bought it back in December of 2002 so it was one of the 1st out there and it has been great...all except for the fact that the only color I could get at the time was black. Ugh. Looks great but only right out of the car wash. Had black cars before and swore I wouldn't do it again. But it has been worth it. It handles well and accelerates better than a lot of cars or trucks. This one is a keeper.


Favorite Features

The engine runs strong and has been 100% reliable as it approaches 15,000 miles.


Suggested Improvements

The seats are an improvement over the older models but still think they could be better. Would also love it if the passenger seat were easily removed.

Review

This is 3rd ford 4x4 that i have owned. purchased this mainly for my wife to use.absolutely love everything about the truck, except the gas mileage is absolutely terrible, 8-10 city and 11- 14 highway. was told by dealer that mileage will get better after a few thousand miles, but i dont believe that.


Favorite Features

Powerfull v-6 smooth ride for a small truck,good highway cruiser.dealership is great and went over and above doing things to help me.


Suggested Improvements

can't believe how poor gas mileage is.sticker said 15 city 19 highway but i am not even getting 10 city or 13 highway.

Review

This is my first small truck I've ever owned and so far I very pleased.


Favorite Features

I love the sound system and the white face gauges.


Suggested Improvements

The seats themselves are cool but the power seats would make it more comfortable for me to drive the truck since I am 6'2.

Review

I love my truck and will always have a Ranger. It's small and easy to drive but big enough to carry my quad. It's cheap on gas yet very powerful when it comes to towing my trailer. I can't even tell I have a 20ft trailer loaded behind it. My Ranger never misses a beat!! I love it!


Favorite Features

The look of sport and class all in one..


Suggested Improvements

A little more room for the driver, tilt wheel would help alot.
