Still the best little trucks made!

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


I have had my latest Ranger for 11 months, now. Averages about 31 MPG on highway trips even going through all of the traffic-jams on I-95 through CT, NY and NJ. My last Ranger was a 1993, which I gave to my son and he is still using it to haul heating-wood. The other brands are more luxurious, but if you need a tough little truck ( not a car with a box stuck on the back) Ford still builds the best. It's probably why the Ranger Plant is staying open, a while longer. Good luck finding another pickup that actually gets over 30 MPG.

Best Features

Looks like an American-made truck. Very smooth 5-speed with 4:10 rear end.

Worst Features

Tip-up passenger seat. Spark-o-matic makes a tip-up mounting bracket for racing seats that you can install.
