2011 will be the last year for Ranger.
Thats why I bought my 4.0 V6, 5 speed.
This will make the 8th one starting in 1984.
Every model I have owned has been better then the last, and they were all good work trucks. I have read the reviews and wonder if the writers have ever had to work, using a truck ,every day for years on end. Why do you think Ford has sold every Ranger that they can make? Simple, they work. If you take reasonable care, they will last for years with out major problems. For the price you will not find a better truck. Ford has over 28 years making this truck, I think they got it right.
Will haul heavy loads, great at towing.and looks like a Ford truck.
The one weak link in all my older Rangers has been the front brakes. They need big rotors.
Thou I see the 2011 has 4 wheel disks all around.
