I drive a 2001 Flex Fuel 3.0 liter 2WD XLT and love it. I have over 145,000 miles on it and its still running great. I have had 1500lbs. in the bed and pulling 2000lbs. on a trailer all at the same time. I don't recommend it but it did an amazing job. The truck doesn't drive that well when there's snow on the ground so I add weight in the winter. The maintenance has been very low over all. The 3.0 liter has enough power to pass on highways and has good fuel mileage. I range between 17 mpg with E-85 and 20 mpg with normal unleaded gas. Rangers are great trucks!
Great Commuter Truck!!!
2007 Ford RangerAnonymous - WASHINGTON, DC03/09/2015
This vehicle makes for an excellent commuter car. MPGs are competitive, Stick shift makes driving fun. This most definitely isn't the family car. Cargo? Sure. Engine's too small for serious jobs, but it'll handle most household needs. Passengers? You only get two, and it's not very comfortable. Performance? Lacking, unless you want to rev high. Fun? Absolutely. You really feel the road in this truck. Between this and the manual trans, my commute is rather interesting these days.
Tough durable truck
2010 Ford RangerBud - Austin, TX01/04/2015
Rangers are very durable and seem to run forever. I purchased this Ranger because I was rear-ended in my previous 06 Ranger, at 40 MPH that totaled it but completely totaled a brand new Mustang GT that hit me. That car could not be driven, my Ranger was able to not only start ('cause impact drove me into the car in front of me) but was driveable onto the tow truck. Rangers are also tough trucks.
