Fuel tank not secure. Major security risk. Ford sl
This truck has no fuel cap. The fuel door does not lock. It is extremely difficult to get a lock for it. This is a major security issue for anyone driving this vehicle. These days rigorous security in all aspects of life is required. So I noticed the fuel door was open and the only explanation for this is that someone opened it and poured a substance into my tank to tamper with my vehicle or someone tried to steal gas, or myself or someone accidently opened it by leaning on it (push springback open). This is extremely anoyying becuase now I don't know whether there is xxx in my gastank and if I want to know without a doubt the tank is clean it will costs me probably $1000 to get the tank cleaned out. And this totally ruins the positive experience I had about this vehicle. Didn't anyone at Ford realize how stupid it is to make a tank that can't be locked. On many vehicles you can simply buy a locking gas cap from autozone but Ford requires a locking plug only made by Ford. And only sold in one place on the internet and with extremely slow shipping. Around 10 days from Levinson Ford. I plan to complain and see if they will cover the costs to clean the fuel tank. It is 100% their fault since they design such a idiotic fuel door configuration. They should also flush the fuel system and install a new fuel filter and pump. Every other engine component is protected from tampering except for the fuel tank. Get a clue Ford and start hiring better engineers and tell your corner cutting accountant advisors to take a hike. Put a phukin automatic locking fuel door on all your vehicles. It's common sense. That Ford would be so blind as to allow such a security risk is a major red flag.
I have had 3 other Rangers over the years and they were all good. I bought a 2020 Ranger STX FX4 AND LOVE IT! I' m 6 foot 4 and fit very good! Size 14 shoes also fit. Am very happy with it. I am 74 years old and worked for Ford for 32 years. Marine ,Vietnam combat veteran.
Great truck! Perfect size for those who haul/ tow occasionally. Plenty of power and comfort! Easy on gas and fun to drive! Has all the comfort for road trips.
Fast Fun Ride
Very happy with my purchase but did have a few gripes: Driver side floor got wet due to an AC issue but it was fully covered under warranty. Sound insulation is pretty light in the doors and roof so rain is loud! The radiator fan is also quite loud but thankfully it doesn’t run much. All in all a great value. Engine power is excellent (as is gas mileage) and the truck is a lot of fun in sport mode! Looks good too!
No stability control
My partner in my business just had a recent crash in my 2020 ford ranger super crew cab . Very disappointed it didn’t do a thing as far as handling wet asphalt and hydroplaning no brakes engaged lost complete control of vehicle which is supposed to have stability control . It says in the book it’s supposed to brake itself on correct tires to prevent skidding hydroplaning etc . The ranger did not preform right as far as stability control it is either just not functioning like it should be or not at all. I would like Ford to take a look into this
Have been impressed!
Purchased the new 2020 Ford Ranger in November, 2020 and have been very surprised ever since! Was waiting for the Ranger to be provided with a V-6 but when I drove the 2020 I was shocked to find the 2.3 liter four had much more power and pick-up than my 1999 Ranger with a 4.0 liter V-6. Since I have towed a trailer with no problem and have been pleased with the 25+ MPG I get with the new truck. The Lariat is a good looking truck and gets me all of the benefits of a truck while maxing out MPG and ride comfort. The only negatives I can identify are the smaller 5-foot bed on the Crew-Cab, but I work around that with little problem. The other is comments on the stiff ride and I purchased a 4X4 so the ride is going to be a little stiff, but still refined on a smooth road. I owned a 1999 Ranger 4X4 for 22 years and it was a little stiff riding, but I never had any serious problems with the truck in 22 years of ownership and it still performed like new after all those years! I am a fan of this great truck!
I finally got a truck
Ive been wanting a truck for some time and boy did I get a beauty. Lariat edition of the Ford Ranger. The seating is comfortable and so far I have getting 26.5 miles per gallon, ABOVE the rating! Looking forward to reviewing it even more after my cross county drive in August to the national parks back west. P.S. This is my first Ford ever and at first was hesitant but so far my fears are calmed.
This truck is great new vehicle that I plan to enjoy for years to come. It will meet and exceed all the needs I require in a truck. It looks great and I love the color!
Perfect for the Pacific Northwest@
The Roush Ranger truck is well suited to most driving conditions in the Pacific Northwest. With the Ford Performance pack, tuned for pulling a trailer, it meets all of my needs! Harris Ford Lincoln did a great job of meeting all of my requirements! Larry Parker is the guy! Every dealership needs a Larry Parker!
Ford Ranger construction is impressive.
Built Ford tough is a fact.Enough tech for me,not too fancy.Still is true to its and and old Henry Fords vision and heritage.Definitely worthy of any tuck buyers consideration.
