This truck gets incredible mileage. There's no way around it. Commuting is stop-and-go for me with 8 miles of stoplights each way. I easily get 25 mpg. Though I don't love the slower acceleration, it's worth it to get that kind of mileage. Plus, the cab is very comfortable for being a smaller vehicle. I'm 6'1" and have plenty of space! If you need to haul medium-sized items, this is definitely a winner. Its lower clearance makes loading heavy items a breeze.
If you're looking for a powerful truck that makes you feel important and lets you look down on other people, this isn't the right one for you. But if you're looking for a small, reliable hauler that's easy to maintain, you just might fall in love.
Tough durable truck

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.
