2007 Ford Ranger review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Ford continues to give compact-pickup buyers plenty of choices. Rangers are available with a four-cylinder or a choice of two V-6s, with either a manual transmission or a five-speed automatic. Options range from skid plates and Bilstein shock absorbers to earth-shattering audio systems.

For 2007, a tire pressure monitoring system and a passive anti-theft system come standard on all models. An audio input jack comes standard for all stereos except the base AM/FM receiver. Two new 16-inch aluminum wheels are now available on most models, and Sirius Satellite Radio is available on the STX, XLT, Sport and all FX4 models. Single-disc CD audio systems now have MP3 compatibility.

Trim levels include XL, STX, XLT, Sport, FX4 Off-Road and FX4 Level II.

The regular-cab XLT model features a 7-foot cargo box, and the Ranger Sport can be equipped with a Tremor MP3 audio and wheel package. Aimed at young buyers, the Ranger Sport conveyed the assertive look and ride height of a four-wheel-drive Ranger at a lower price.

Exterior
Rangers come in three sizes, with a choice of two cabs and bed lengths. Regular-cab pickups are available with a 6- or 7-foot cargo bed. SuperCab (extended-cab) versions are fitted exclusively with a 6-foot bed.

A power dome hood is installed. Two rear-hinged rear doors, which are optional on SuperCab models, can be opened only after the front doors are open. XL models have black bumpers and a black bar-style grille, while the XLT gets chrome bumpers and a chrome grille surround. Sport pickups have a honeycomb grille and body-colored bumpers.

Regular-cab models ride a 111.5- or 117.4-inch wheelbase and measure 189.4 or 198.4 inches long overall. SuperCab Rangers have a 125.7-inch wheelbase and are 203.6 inches long overall. An optional tubular cargo-bed extension can add 2 feet to the 6-foot bed’s length. Skid plates and step bars are standard on FX4 Rangers.

Options include two 15-inch forged aluminum wheels and body-colored side moldings. Two-tone paint goes on FX4 Off-Road and Level II models. FX4 Off-Road pickups are available in two- or four-door SuperCab form.

Interior
Regular-cab Rangers can seat either two or three occupants on either bucket seats or a 60/40-split bench. SuperCab models can be equipped with a pair of rear jump seats. Like all jump seats in compact pickups, the Ranger’s rear seats are too small to hold adults comfortably. Leather-trimmed seating surfaces and sport bucket seats are available.

Under the Hood
Three engines are available: a 143-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder; a 148-hp, 3.0-liter V-6; and a 207-hp, 4.0-liter V-6 that delivers 238 pounds-feet of torque. Ford’s four-cylinder engine is standard in XL and two-door XLT SuperCab 4×2 models. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard, and a five-speed automatic is optional. Rear- and four-wheel-drive models are offered, and a dashboard switch can engage four-wheel drive while the vehicle is moving.

Safety
Four-wheel antilock brakes are standard. Dual-stage front airbags are standard, but side-impact airbags are not available.

Driving Impressions
Rangers are pleasant to drive and capable in every significant respect. Each model is attractive, well designed, solidly built and reasonably comfortable inside.
