2005 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought it new, and put in a K&N air filter! Runs as fast as I need it to! Put Cooper Cobra GTs and will put corner any car that gets behind me! It’s been a great pickup! The only downside to it, is there’s really only enough room for 2 people!

2005 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab FX4 Off-Road 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My second and best Ranger (2005 fx4, ext.cab.4.0 automatic). I just love it. Take care of it routinely, and it will love you back. Hauled tons of stuff, pulled even more, long comfortable trips, if it snows or rains, just kick in the 4x4, and it just handles it. And if anybody messes with me, I just put my foot in it, let it rev up, and they don't try it again. It has 208000 miles, and is still strong and willing. Replaced the usual brake pads, front wheel bearings, etc. but no biggie. It will make it until the 2018 comes back, and I will get an even better one.

Just bought this 2005 Ranger and very happy so far. Much more truck than I expected for a compact and the V6 has great power.

2005 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab EDGE Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased this vehicle as a way to get around logging roads for camping and fishing and to haul kayaks. Interior is appealing -- very clean and low maintenance. Exterior is very appealing. Paint lacks quality (black). My model EDGE is a 2x4 with 4x4 torsion bar suspension. This makes for some very difficult situations off-road. I have been stuck in situations where a 1 ton Buick could have got its way out -- but not this thing. Drives very nice on twisty mountain highways. The only major concern I have is the amount of engine vibration in the 3.0 L it is very very unstable past 2k and doesn't feel/sound healthy after 3.5k. Fuel mileage is okay if your driving like you are retired.


Best Features

Interior. Mag rims. Bright headlights. Decent Handling


Worst Features

Drive linkage is poor. Wheel bearings and ball joints don't stand up to continued light off-road use. Engine mileage is terrible for 3.0 L. Engine noise is terrible. Engine power is terrible.
