Best small truck on the road
By srhudgens on


2008 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I bought a new Ranger this year, spurred on by the crazy rebates Ford offered on this truck earlier in the year. Replaced a 1995 Ranger XLT with over 220,000 trouble-free miles. These are the best small trucks on the road. Funny thing, I drove off the lot paying just $9,800 for a loaded 2008 Ranger XLT. The dealership gave me $2,000 for my 1995 Ranger. What wonderful trucks these are. Ford is making a huge mistake discontinuing the line. Leave it to an American auto company to discontinue the most fuel-efficient line of trucks in production just as gas prices set new records...

Best Features

Reliability and fuel economy. Fun to drive, too. 2.3L is a great little engine. I get 30 MPG at 75 MPH with A/C on.

Worst Features

One irritating thing is that the air filter cover looks nearly impossible to get off. It has the A/C and radiator reservoir hose curled up around it. Not a good design. Generally, the engine isn't laid out as well as my 1995. The dipstick is also in an awkward place (too far back).
