They need to see their competition

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


I was an engineer at Chrysler. My father at GM. I drive for a living. Quality: First USA car with no manufacturing defects. Looks great. Handles Highway: the worst I have ever driven. Printed dangerous handling warning on visor. Best mileage: small 6 with the gas efficient rear end. Best handling: same. Interior: They fired their engineers 30 years ago. I could write pages on their lack of cab engineering. Everything is in the wrong place, works the wrong way, is the wrong size, whatever. E.G. try changing a fuse if you are not an anorexic 8-year old (need flashlight). Try getting groceries out of the back seat. No fan switch off. Center knob: Off(1),vent(1),AC(6).

Best Features

Nice paint.

Worst Features

Bigger door storage, glove box. Add other storage. Increase side mirror range. Redo AC controls. Attached dome light switch. Extend center console. Move 12v plugs to center console. Make fuse panel accessible. Give layout. Reverse buttons on key fob to match door. Extend seat tracks forward
