1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


I have 102,000 miles logged on my 1997
Ford Ranger. Other than basic
maintenance items, the vehicle has
performed very well. The 4 cylinder
engine won't set the world on fire but
I'm happy with the average 26 MPG I am
getting. The 2wd makes for difficult
traction in snow or rain.

Best Features

Comfortable, high seating position, excellent climate controls and gas mileage. Its been a very solid vehicle. The ride and handling are quite good for a small pickup.

Worst Features

Looking forward to a true 4-door Ranger for those of us that need the utility of a pickup but also need to transport the kids all over town. The Explorer Sport Trac is just too expensive an option.
