Awesome Little Truck
By Pbennett on


2006 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


After looking at new trucks and suffering sticker shock, I started looking at used trucks and I was still shocked! The prices they wanted for Toyotas and Nissan trucks was outrageous. I knew I was just buying a name, since my research shows that the Ford trucks were either better or on par with any Japanese truck. I bought my 2006 Ranger XLT SuperCab for $10,000. It had 43,000 miles on it and came with the reliable, Vulcan 3.0 V6. Yes, the Ranger is dated but Ford has worked 99% of the Bugs out of this truck line. I don't need a Godzilla Truck with a Godzilla price tag, to haul brush, furniture, my dead deer and me to work everyday! This is a super truck no matter how you look at it!

Best Features

* Its a Ford. * Super Reliable Vulcan 3.0 Engine. * 4dr Supercab * It feels like a Truck. * The throaty sound from the Flowmaster Exhaust. * The Growl from the Volant Cold Air Intake.

Worst Features

* Better Gas Mileage. * Drive and Passenger side airbags.
