Great truck for the money

2009 Ford Ranger XL 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Good truck, with good gas mileage. Small enough to do a daily commute in city traffic, and easy to park in small spaces. Would recommend the FX4, with the payload package. There are a few squeaks and rattles in the cabin over hard bumps, but that can be easily fixed. Runs great in 4x4 mode, especially with 4.10 rear. The only real downside is the Goodyear RT/S tires. They ride good on road, but do not grip well on wet roads, and not too great in the snow. BF Goodrich A/T tires would make the truck feel more capable in rain/snow. The leather seats are very comfortable and supportive over long rides. I highly recommend this truck. It's not as fancy, but it is just as capable for the price.

Best Features

Like the increased rear spring rate, helps when carrying light to medium weight loads. Leather interior is very nice. The steering is sharp and responsive. Bed extender is extremely handy.

Worst Features

Occasional squeak or rattle over bumps. Fit and finish could be just a little bit better to be perfect, but this isn't an expensive Mercedes. Also could use better tires. Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires aren't bad, but BF Goodrich tires would make this a very good truck.
