Vehicle used mainly for city delivery. Fuel economy 23 mpg on route. Has manual shift which is ok, but no 'vette. Handles 3000 lb trailer ok when called on. I'd give it "considerly above average" over all.
It is a very good truck. Very dependable and good on gas for a truck. The only complaint is the driver side door speaker has blown out. other than that it is a very enjoyable truck that surprisingly hasn't gotten stuck in any areas.
This has been an incredible truck! The engine is smooth and powerful, the suspension soaks up bumps better than my roommate's 2001 Accord, there are no rattles anywhere, and everything feels solid and of great quality. I especially love the crisp shifting of my 5-speed Aisin manual. Compared to my father's 2002 Ranger, this truck is way ahead in all areas. I highly recommend one!
I opted for the the 3.5l engine and it is awesome. Lots of power. This vehicle has a smooth ride not like some trucks. Researched and test drove all the competitors in this class and liked this one best. Great quality for the price tag. Very satisfied with my choice.
