2005 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab EDGE Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I choose to buy a Ranger over the newer completion, mainly because I'm a Ford guy, and I just simply like it. I recommend it to anyone.


Best Features

6-disc in-dash CD/MP3 player. 5-speed manual transmission. Ride height.


Worst Features

Replace existing V6 engines with Duratec models, like the Duratec 30 and 35.

2005 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab EDGE Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I recently had the transmission go out in my Chevy. I was looking for something new and I found the Ranger Edge. It's awesome in every aspect. It has great power, and is fun to drive. I have to commute to college so it's perfect. It's not a 4 banger car with no power or a gas guzzling V8. It's one of the best cars I have ever owned.


Best Features

I love the smooth ride and handling, not to mention the overall look.


Worst Features

More horsepower.

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


Review

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


Best Features

4 doors. Power windows. Power Locks. Seats 100% more comfortable.


Worst Features

Head rests impede vision to the side and back. Can't see out the extended window. Adjust it for safety reasons.

2005 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab EDGE 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased this vehicle to explore the Southwest deserts. As I can afford only one vehicle this truck perfectly meets all my personal and recreational needs. It is small enough to be quite maneuverable yet large enough to handle all my traveling requirements, including sleeping in the rear. Thus far it has gone everywhere I have pointed it without a hitch or complaint.


Best Features

I enjoy the stability both on and off the road.


Worst Features

Tow hooks on the rear and more skid plates underneath.
