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

Review

I've put 4,000 miles on my 4cyl. maunal. Am getting 28mpg pretty consistently. It does bounce a lot but has excellent handling and surprisingly good acceleration, at least when empty. I can easily park in really tight spaces and it's easier to get into the garage than my Aztec was. Front seat is very comfortable with easy access even for my handicapped sister. Not a good choice if you routinely have more than one passenger even with the jump seat. If you really want/need a small truck for light loads that gets good mileage and can take a lot of abuse this can't be beat. The only truly small truck remaining. Ford should market it as such, it would have a niche of its own these days.

Best Features

Tight turning circle; comfortable front seats; ease of access; gas mileage(28 mpg with 4cyl. manual); sturdiness; price.

Worst Features

A better back seat, please. Very bouncy on rough roads.
