2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Off-Road 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My Ranger is comfortable and fun to
drive. I get 20 miles to the gal. of
gas on the hiway and around 16 to 17 in
town.


Best Features

the performance is better than I expected. The interior layout is good. I especially like the doors to the bak space as both sides open and far enough that access is easy.

2003 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XL Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I needed more interior space so
purchased the Ranger extended cab. The
3.0 L V6 has plenty of power. Auto
transmission shifts smoothly. I'm
surprised at 2,400 RPM when cruising @
65 MPH on the highway. Thought it
would be closer to 2,000. Wish seat
could fold fwd. enough to access
behind seat space without having whole
seat slide fwd. Should be a good truck
overall. I do miss my F-150.


Best Features

Comfortable and supportive cloth seats. Good visibility every direction. Transmission shifts very smoothly.


Worst Features

I wish I had behind seat access without the whole seat sliding forward. Would also prefer differential ratio for lower cruise RPM. Recommend get differential lock.

2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab Edge Plus 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

4.0L, 5-spd. Auto. Trans, A/C, 4WD.
Coming off 2 excellent Toyota trucks,
the Ford is WAY more truck for the
money. Build quality is equal to that
of Toyota and performance, ride, and
ruggedness surpasses Toyota.

Long-term quality is the only question,
but Consumer Reports rates the Ranger
equal to the Tacoma.

Love this truck. Price, performance,
quality, ride - everything. Did switch
truck over to synthetic fluids @750
miles (Amsoil).


Best Features

Quiet ride, power, smooth transmission, on-the-fly 4WD, excellent A/C (better than Toyota). Gas mileage is better than manufacturer specs.


Worst Features

Inside & outside overall looks (Toyota's better style), but you cannot have everything. Jump seats in the back as part of standard package.
