2001 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab Edge Plus 2WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Bought it used from Carmax to use as
second vehicle with more hauling
capability. Have sold primary auto now
(Mercedes SUV) and find the daily
driving of the Ranger is very
satisfying. Great acceleration. Nice
looks. Good handling and brakes.
Owned a 2000 Ranger XLT extended cab
with auto prior to purchasing 2001
Ranger. 2000 model had 3.0 engine,
two doors. Traded mainly for
increased power of 4.0 and 4 doors.
2001 much better truck than 2000.
Impressed with power. Recently towed
78 cement blocks (guessing 5,000 lb)
and had plenty of power and still got
16 mpg. Impressive.
Improved styling over 2000 model.
Looks more "beefy" than S10 models.
Good ride for 4x4. Love the four
doors for access behind seat.
Better gas mileage. Full size 4x4
with V8 gets as good mileage as this
