Great Little Truck!
By Olen on


1998 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I am 16 years old and this is my first car! I can not say how pleased I am with this vehicle. Performance: a 3.0 liter V6. Can move the truck but is not an engine you can dog all day long. Comfort: Seats are very comfy and have great lumbar support. Back seat is fit for cargo only but my 8 yr old brother can fit back there. Fuel economy could be better. I get 18 city/22 hwy. Fun to drive, easy to drive. Shocks could be better but it's a truck! What do you expect? Interior design looks alright but I'm going to pimp it out soon! Exterior design looks awesome. Looks way better than S10s. Build quality: built to last...built to love. Reliability: very few problems!

Best Features

I love the look of it. I can adjust the seats and can slide them back pretty far (mines extended cab). Can haul enough junk in the bed but is not a gas hog. Speakers are pretty loud. I might be getting new speakers anyway though

Worst Features

I need a little more power in the engine. I would like to see better gas mileage. 4 door Ranger would be nice. Radio stinks. I'm getting an in dash DVD player for it soon. Grille could look better
