Ranger Birthday
By Thomas Kenny on


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


Bought myself a new 08 Ranger for my birthday. It is the XL Supercab with the 2.3l I4 engine with 5 speed automatic overdrive transmission. I love the torch red color, and I did get A/C, tilt/cruise, stereo with CD player that is MP3 friendly, buddy seats, privacy glass and sliding rear window. I am looking for some good gas mileage and am told that I can get between 24 and 29 mpg on the road after the engine loosens up in 2-3 thousand miles. I love to drive it, it is very quiet, handles predictably with good road feel and steering. This is probably the last year of the Ranger so this truck should keep the Ranger memory alive for many years.

Best Features

I like the body style and the size of the truck for my needs.

Worst Features

Easier access to rear of supercab. There has to be a better way!
