Being the last year of the Ranger I`m glad I ordered one when I did. I`ve been extremely pleased with this vehicle. It works exceptionally well in off-road conditions even with the factory street tires and gets me about 20 MPG on a trip. Regular gas is still the cheapest and it works well to deliver all the power I need.
One of the features I like most about this little truck is it`s brawny stature. I love the leather seats and the special center console with the subwoofer inside. In addition, servicing this vehicle has been a breeze. Everything is easily accessable.
Fuel mileage is an issue. However, I don`t know of many 4X4`s that get good milage. Otherwise I have no suggestions.
