Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
The Ranger is offered in two cab styles: regular and SuperCab. The regular cab comes with either a 6- or 7-foot cargo bed, while the SuperCab comes only with a 6-foot bed. Three trim levels are offered: XL, XLT and Sport.

New for 2010
The Ranger adds roll stability control and side-impact airbags as standard safety equipment. The FX4 off-road model has been dropped in the U.S., though it's still available in Canada. The XL work truck adds standard air conditioning.

Exterior
The Ranger's outward appearance hasn't changed much since 1998; it remains a compact pickup.
  • Sport Package features monochromatic theme
  • Sport has body-colored H-bar grille
  • Other models have H-bar grille with nostrils


Interior
The Ranger interior is bare-bones basic. Leather seating is available whether you get the 60/40-split bench seat or the bucket seats, and there's an available Pioneer sound system with seven speakers (SuperCab only). The XLT and Sport pay the most attention to style and functionality.
  • Standard rear jump seats on two-door SuperCab models
  • All sound systems have MP3 jack
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel for XLT and Sport

My favorite truck

by Revron lake from Niantic, conn on November 17, 2018

I've owned this truck for may years and it has run, without any problems. Over 100 grand on the speedometer and still runs like new. Very versatile as it gets 26 mpg year round. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
