2007 Ford Ranger FX4 Level II 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Choppy ride on the freeway but that's what you get with a truck. The leather seats really sold it for me. Gas mileage sucks but the 4.0 has power when you need it. Not a lot of cargo space in the back. I love the rugged exterior look. I wish it has stereo controls on the steering wheel. All in all I think it's a great truck. The Level II has great style and is quite capable.
Cruise control. Auxiliary MP3 port. Leather seats. Bed liner. Aluminum wheels. Fog lights. Garage remote strap on sun visor. Drivers arm rest. Decent sound. Rear suicide doors.
Add volume control to steering wheel. Multi-Disc changer. Premium sound system. Upgraded exhaust. Power seats. Auto dimming rear view mirror. Noisy power steering system. Four-wheel disc brakes.
I have a 2007 fx4 off road ranger,v6 auto with tow package(bougth it new) use it on week ends, have 50,000 miles. very reliable, got me to where we go,especially in snow,would like better gas mileage about 17-20 mpg highway. I have two issuses , since new the transmission when driving and the speed drops to 20 miles a hour and it down shifts it feels if someone kicked me in the seat,trips to the dealer resulted in reprogram computer,work on the vavle body chech transmission.The dealer said that is the way this transmission works. Second issuse is rust, looking underneath there is rust all over when I brought it to the dealer they said they can't do anything unless it rust THRU. Has anybody
Good, basic, truck. No real mechanical problems, I had the tow package so the rear end was squirrely without some weight in the back. The gear box felt like it was taken out of a Sherman tank but it was solid and always worked. The ride is...well rough but, its a truck. the seats are great the radio was great and the clearance and 4WD were excellent. I drove it around forest service roads in Montana for a year and never got stuck, not even close. This is a good all around truck. Not a refined driving experience...but hey,its a truck. Gripes? only small ones, the rear window always whistled...and you can see the jagged edges of the sheet metal on the body. Need a SMALL solid truck this is it
Size. Some forest roads are too narrow for the new fatter Tacomas, F-150s etc the rangers have remained a reasonable size. The truck seems bullet proof. Good gas mileage (19/24) for a V6! and a Very comfortable ride on the highway!!!
A little more attention to build quality, I know seeing the poorly cut edges of the body sheeting is cosmetic....but come on.....that's just lazy engineering.....better jump seats?...
