2004 Ranger is a great value

2004 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XLT Value 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


I drive a mix of heavy freeway and city
streets, about 70 miles/day, and have
averaged a very consistent 19.5 MPG in
this truck..I'm pleasantly surprised
given the great acceleration with this
truck. It has a 5 speed, and 4.10 rear
end with traction lock. Overall, I'm
very happy. Even the paint job was
flawless from the factory. I've noticed
that for 2005 they got rid of the Value
package. That's too bad, it was a
great deal in '04. You should know
that the engine has a limiter at about
95 miles/hour. In areas where the
speed limit is 75, and many drivers are
going 80 to 85, that limit was scary
the first time I reached it.

Best Features

The 4.0 sounds good, accelerates great. The fit and finish is excellent.

Worst Features

Wish I had gotten the 4 door supercab rather than the two door. Putting large objects in the back is rough or impossible. The sound system is not great...muddy bass. Also, the doors do sound tinny (I read this in another reviewers note...guess I'm not the only one.)
