Review of the 2005 Ford Ranger

  • Old, tired and completely outclassed by its competition, the 2005 Ford Ranger only deserves a look if you're content with a cheap price and passable performance.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multiple trim levels and options, functional interior, cheap price.

  • Cons

    Dated platform, weak engines, choppy ride, lack of modern features and amenities, no crew cab body style.

  • What's New for 2005

    The flareside pickup bed option is no longer available. Package updates and revised wheel and tire options round out the changes to the 2005 Ford Ranger.

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Owned a 2002 and turned it in for a 2005. It has really been developed into a great truck.

God handling, excellent paint and body especially with the 4-door model. Jump seats a bit cramped but local commutes not bad. Good all around track-record no major repairs as of yet.
