1995 Ford Ranger Splash 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Review

This Ranger has the 2.3 liter engine.Very reliable, good mileage, great handling truck. Truck does not have much power, however engine works good with 5 speed manual. Excellent truck for city or highway driving, does not like hill climbs however, you will have to gun it. I have had a few Rangers, liked the 97 2.3 liter the best. Stay away from 4.0 liter Ranger unless you are hauling or hill climbing. An absolute gas guzzler, motor is too heavy for truck


Best Features

Good gas mileage, good looking truck, easy to work on, fun to drive and reliable


Worst Features

Truck needs more power if your going uphill. Dome light and chime go on after exiting truck?

1995 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought new 2.3L inline 4 cylinder ext cab in 95', it has held up amazingly well inspite of my repeatedly loading it down with tools and materials to build decks and kitchens. Other than a clutch rebuild I've never had a problem!


Best Features

Same front seat set up as the Ford Explorer, best selling SUV for over 30 years but with the extended cab the wheelbase is 9-11" longer and therefore has a far better ride! In my 13th year of ownership I still love my truck, and it has saved me financially!


Worst Features

Fabulous truck, I wish it had the tie downs low in the bed that the newer ones have.

1995 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I purchased with 8 miles on it and have loved it ever since. I wish it had a larger cab for a family. I've preformed regular maintaince on it and it keeps running. My wife owns a 4 year newer Chevy and we put more repair into it with a lot less miles. I've been able to repair any issue myself.


Best Features

Comfortable, reliable, good gas mileage, fun to drive, haul and pull trailers.


Worst Features

Repair electrical issues in model year.

1995 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought this truck right when I got my learners permit. I bought it for $2000 with 130000 and now it has nearly 145000. I have not had a single problem with this truck. It runs like a champ with great gas milage. It has the 2.3 with a 5 speed. I love this Ranger. It does great in the mountains and on the high way. For a 4 banger it accelerates great. If you hit the gas hard it will kick up some sand. It has a little bit of trouble going up steep hills. I've had to replace a brake caliper bolt and I need new shocks in the near future. For the price it is a great running, sharp truck. I wish I would of got the extended cab as it is a little cramped.


Best Features

Stereo, gas mileage, reliablity, style, 5 speed transmission, steering, bright turn signals,


Worst Features

I wish it had more room in the cab, better in snow,

Review

This is a very reliable truck, looks great, runs smooth, drives comfortably even over rough roads - no rattles. I have had the same issues as the other reviewers with the rusty brake lines, door jam WD-40 fix and the intermittent wiper ghost. Mine has a automatic and has not much power but the gas milage and reliability make up for that. Get good snow tires for the 2wd or you will go nowhere.


Best Features

Ride comfort, reliability, interior design, paint quality, braking power.


Worst Features

Make better brake lines, and engine water inlet/outlets. Corosion protection is lacking...rust never sleeps. (I replaced 14ft of brake lines)
