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


Review

This is my third Ranger Truck and by far the nicest. I like the new two-toned high back seats and interior design. This truck is small enough for decent gas mileage yet is roomy inside and has enough power to get you where you want to go.


Best Features

Interior design and comfort and the Flareside bed. This truck also has an excellent stereo system from the factory.


Worst Features

Position of the odometer/trip odometer is a bit awkward. You have to reach through the steering wheel.

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


Review

This is my second Ranger. The 4.0L is a nice upgrade from the 3 liter. I have never had a problem with either truck and it is ten times more dependable than my Dodge Dakota.


Best Features

Super cab and of course the 4WD. A scream in the snow and sand.


Worst Features

Tilt steering. Maybe a sunroof.

2004 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab Edge Deluxe Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had a few problems but nothing major. I love the truck. Have always had a 150 and stepped down to a Ranger and love it.


Best Features

The whole vehicle especially the Pioneer sound system.


Worst Features

Wider tires, too stiff of a ride - soften it up a little.

2004 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab Tremor Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Only 7500 miles but so far very reliable. No dealer nightmare stories to relate. Fuel rated at 18 to 23 but 14 to 21 mpg is more like it. 16 in.wheels a big plus, 3.0L plenty of pep. I looked at S-10 and Tacoma but for the cost verses what you get, no contest. Lots of pros but only negative would be fuel mileage. I am sold on it so far.


Best Features

510 watt factory stereo is unreal. 16 inch wheels.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage.
