Good, not Great
By TruckMan92 on


2000 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


All in all, a pretty good truck. By no means the best in the mid- sized/compact class. The truck is a lot of fun to drive, and gets the job done. The seats are comfortable, the extended-cab is functional. The towing/payload capacities are about as good as anything else in its class. I have used this truck for everything. Its reliability is great, never had a problem. The interior design is very plain, nothing special at all. The exterior is nice, but again, nothing special. The quality is good, everythings sturdy, its a Ford. The performance and drive are great. It handles turns well, breaking is nice, acceleration is suprisingly good. The fuel economy is terrible, 14 MPG!

Best Features

4WD, cab space, sound system, handling, ABS.

Worst Features

Gas mileage! EPA estimated is 15 city, around 20 highway. In reality, it gets 13-14 City and 18-19 Highway (Well maintained). A full-sized gets better gas mileage. And keep in mind, this is only a V6! Would also like to see improvements in the design, it needs an update.
