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.

Not bad for a cheap

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL Fleet 4WD Styleside LB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Bought this truck on a lease for $225/month and haven't had a lick of trouble with it. It's no luxury auto, pretty boxy and not a lot of acceleration, but it serves a purpose.
