I couldn't agree with you more! I just purchased a 2011 Ford Ranger Super Cab XLT 4dr and it is the second I have purchased. My first one was and still is a 2001 which my son is now driving. It has 180,000 miles on the 4.0 liter and still runs strong. I drove a Tacoma 4 door and wasn't impressed at all. I am sure they are great trucks but not $12,000 more worth it than the Ranger. I agree with you about failing to see the inferior braking, handling and upgrade features. This truck is functional and it gets the job done for me. The 4.0 Liter is more than enough power for this little truck. When I drove it off the lot, I was amazed at how quiet it was compared to my 2010 Honda Accord. You can say what you want but these little trucks are fun to drive and reliable and give you lots of bang for your buck.Report it
