My third Ford Ranger, a 2008 XLT, upholds the proud tradition of its ancestors. Great mileage 28 MPG. Unbelievably affordable. Unmatched reliability single key turn start in sub zero weather, and I don't have the engine block warmer. Safe in a collision. Low maintenance. Great resale value-try to buy a used Ranger, you might as well just spend the extra $1000-2000 and get a new one. If you need an affordable, low-maintenance, reliable commuter vehicle, the Ranger is it
5 speed manual transmission with 1.9L/4 cyl. Great mileage. I have owned 3 Rangers, and had nearly 300,000 miles between them, and had only to replace a single serpentine belt. The Ranger is the ultimate in practicality, as far as vehicles go. It is the ultimate in practicality
The only criticism I can level against the Ranger, is that the road noise in the cab is higher then what I like, which in my opinion is small potatoes when compared to its advantages.
