Fine little truck
By Aaron on


2008 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this truck as a second vehicle primarily for haulings stuff w/o ruining my other car. I bought a really stripped down version of it (air and auto only) about 3 mos. ago, and have been really happy with it. The ride is stiff and the transmission is somewhat unrefined, but still this truck was a very economical solution to my needs. While the 4-cyl engine won't win any races, the low end torque enables the engine to come through when I'm really loaded up. The 4-cyl. is noisy, the truck is loose in the rear on wet pavement :), the air conditioning works well, but I have inadvertanly knocked the truck into neutral when reaching for the radio controls (bad layout). I would recommend it.

Best Features

The bed of course.

Worst Features

Get the radio controls out of the line of the gear shift. Add in some insulation to reduce the engine noise.
