First Truck

by Youngman from Ontario, Canada on Sat Dec 10 2011

This truck is an awesome first vehicle, I'm 17 and enjoy it. Small engine that takes a while to get up to speed and I think it is very bad for fuel. I paid like $30 CAN for 120km on my tank, which my gauge said was half. so I'm getting roughly about 250-300km a tank barely. The Inside looks really nice as well does the body. The looks and features are outstanding but the fuel economy and performance is not that great. I find that Its OK in town, I drove it on the HWY for an hour to go out of town and it did that ok. and that is when i had the best fuel consumption.

The Ranger is a solid, well-built mid-size truck that suffers only from a cab that is a bit confining, and that will be rectified with the redesigned 1998. Mazda's B-series will also profit from the change.

Cooperation between Ford and Mazda is not new. Ford owns a large chunk of Mazda. They have shared car and truck platforms for quite some time, and the cross-pollination... Read More
