1994 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Best vehicle I have ever owned. Reliability has been excellant. Very convenient getting objects out of bed and easy to get in and out. While my new 150 Supercrew is more fun to drive on the highway, the Ranger is a better everyday useage vehicle.

1994 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

If someone had told me I'd be driving a pickup truck 10 years ago I would have thought they were crazy. This baby has moved my friends, transported refrigerators & freezers, helped me transport all that Home Depot stuff to renovate my house, picked up those 'finds' along the curb on garbage day, and much more with just regular oil changes and tune-ups. Only problem has been a need for fuel pumps every 2 years! Everything else is regular maintenance. I hate to sell it, but now I need an extended cab.


Best Features

Nice and simple - it's a truck. 5 speed transmission has never whimpered. Got it at only 89,000 miles and it has 179,000 on it today. Engine still cool. I love this truck.


Worst Features

Seats and stereo.

Review

Ibought my ranger in 2002 and all I have
done to it besides oil changes is a new
battry.I did have the transmission
suddenly lock up going 65 mph but it was
my fault.I replaced it and I dont hink I
will ever have to but another truck for
a long time .Ithas 133000 mile and still
runs like new .lots of power and great
gas mileage I con get up to 450 miles to
a tank. the only thing is it is not too
comfortable on long trips,but i can deal
with it because this truck is great.

Review

The vehicle is tough. The height to
width ratio is such that roll is more
pronounced that with wider vehicles.
Torque curve is such that powering
ahead is best in the 2000 to 2500 rpm
range. The vehicle has good metal;
some of the newer vehicles of today
leave something to be desired when it
comes to skin thickness. The vehicle
corners well. Its twin I-beam front
suspension is such that outboard front
wheel tuck is well mitigated because
spring compression produces an opposing
angle to wheel tuck. Its 4.0 uses no
oil, and supplies ample power.
Transmission is a manual 5-speed, which
affords great versatility. Overall, I
give the truck and 8.0.


Best Features

Sound system. Daytime pull-to-flash high beam stalk. Durability. Overdrive (5th gear) on interstate. Tilt-back seats. Air conditioning; one of the best systems I've experienced.


Worst Features

Taller springs in the front end.

1994 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

I have never been a Ford owner but have
to say my Ranger is the best car ever.
In the past 10 years I have only
replaced brakes and tires once and not
even a tune up has been required. Only
problems have been with cruise control
(stopped working) and occasional
leaking gas near filler neck.


Best Features

Maintenance Free & Reliable 4.0 Liter engine Styling Brakes


Worst Features

tie downs should be included in bed of truck
