2009 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Have put 600 miles on the truck after purchasing new. So far, very satisfied with purchase. Put to work on day 1, but only light duty hauling. Build quality, road manners, handling, and road noise all better than one might expect for this basic truck. Fuel efficiency has been on target to EPA estimates with mostly normal driving. I rated performance very high - but not based on unladen driving. Power is not "excellent" but instead basically as good as expected. However, power under load is excellent - with 1/2 ton of lumber and other materials driving manners (handling, clutch performance, braking) did not significantly decrease and power was great. Will update once I've put more miles on it

Favorite Features

Only domestic offering of a truly compact truck. Selling at significant savings over a comparable Colorado (though with less standard equipment) and better mileage. Performance under load very solid; better than anticipated. Standard hitch. Independent rear suspension. Reachable bed (from side).

Suggested Improvements

Input jack for media player on standard radio. Storage in center console. Factory or dealer in-bed liner option. Continuously improve power/torque/efficiency of engine.
