1998 Ford Ranger
For a little truck, it still feels like you are driving a nice pickup truck. I'm able to haul things for friends, since the bed has enough room. Lots of miles, but still running ok. The day I have to part with it, I'm sticking with Ford.
1999 Ford Ranger
It's working out to be just what he needed for a 1st vehicle. And because he's in Auto-shop at school, he's able to practice and understand things he's learning while tinkering on this.

2001 Ford Ranger
Great little truck powerful 4.0 v6. I really didn't think that I would love it as much as I do!
2002 Ford Ranger
Bought it so I would have a beater car to drive to and from work as well as haul stuff around if need be. It's a nice little truck that does about 19-22 mpg highway and is comfortable to drive. It was a farm truck so it looks pretty beat up but it is easy to work on as I have had to do minor repairs.
1999 Ford Ranger
I restore 4x4 trucks and SUV's. Ranger is the best small truck around. Easy to repair. Good factory rust protection. Factory mud flaps protect the truck from rock dings. 4.0 motor can do over 200,000 miles. 4wd switch in cab eliminates getting out to lock hubs.

Used Ford Ranger Information
The Ranger nameplate was initially used on their F-Series range of full-size pickup trucks produced from 1965, but since 1983 The Ranger has been a standalone compact pickup from the company.
For the second generation, released in 1993, Ford did not alter the look of the Ranger too drastically, although it was streamlined to make it a little less boxy. It was offered with a standard or extended cab as well as a more fashionable shape called Splash. The Ranger also had very clear choices between engines: a 2.3L four-cylinder as standard or a top-of-the-range model with a 4.0L V6. For those needing increased pulling power but perhaps not the most powerful engine, a 3.0L V6 was there as a compromise.
Throughout the years that the second-gen model ran â up until 2000 â Ford made a handful of additions. For models from 1995 onward, antilock brakes came as standard, while the V6 engines went from four- to five-speed in 1997.
The third generation of the Ranger ran from 2001-2011 and is widely available on the used market. There have been four standard model options in that time; the more standard XL and XLT, a Sport model and the powerful FX4 designed for off-road use, with Edge, STX and Tremor also being added to the range.
It was a successful and reliable compact pickup, known for impressive handling both on and off road, but as the vehicle wasnât as heavily modernized as others from the same time it may appear more outdated.
