The Ranger was once a sales leader in a burgeoning class of compact pickup trucks, but in the past 10 years, the compact segment has been abandoned and grown into the mid-size pickup-truck segment. The sole compact holdout is the Ranger. Pickup trucks don’t get much smaller than the Ranger, and the diminutive Ford is both outsized and outclassed by the competition.
Since its inception in , the Ranger has undergone only one major redesign. The current Ranger design arrived way back in during Pres. Bill Clinton’s first term in office. A freshening that included a beefier frame occurred in ; since then the Ranger has been left behind by ever-larger competition such as the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon, Dodge Dakota, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, and Honda Ridgeline. Predictably, the Ranger’s once strong sales have fallen off dramatically over the past few years.
Ford offers three engines in the Ranger. The base engine is a fuel-efficient DOHC liter four-cylinder with horsepower and pound-feet of torque. The next step up is a pushrod liter V-6 with horsepower and pound-feet of torque. At the top of the range is a SOHC liter V-6 (shared with the Explorer and Mustang) that makes horsepower and pound-feet of torque in the Ranger. All engines are available with a five-speed manual or automatic gearbox. Four-wheel drive is not available with the base four-cylinder engine but is optional with both V-6 engines. Most of the Ranger’s competitors offers more horsepower from their V-6 engines, and some even have optional V-8 power.
Ford offers two cab styles in the Ranger: a regular cab and the longer SuperCab, which sports optional small jump seats in the second row. The Ranger has fallen behind the times, as it does not offer a full four-door version—rear-hinged rear doors are optional on SuperCab models. Compared with the competition, the Ranger’s cabin is cramped and dated. Tellingly, the interior design dates to the mid-’90s, when the Ranger was first outfitted with dual front airbags. Towing capacity ranges from pounds up to pounds. Mazda sells a rebadged version of the Ranger under the Mazda B-series moniker.

The Ford Ranger is a dated compact pickup truck that has been surpassed by its competition in size, capability, and refinement. The Ranger’s low price and cost of ownership are perhaps the only compelling reasons to consider it; there are better choices on the market.

A more aerodynamic front-bumper design helps boost fuel economy slightly. Service intervals are extended to miles. Tire-pressure monitoring is now standard.

Dual front airbags, tire-pressure monitoring, and anti-lock brakes are standard. Side-impact airbags, curtain airbags, and stability control are not available on the Ranger, which is hardly surprising given that seatbelts were practically a recent innovation when the model debuted.

Winch-Ready Off-Road Bumper Looks Great On Ford Ranger
ARB 4x4 Accessories is also helping the Blue Oval come up with off-road snorkels, air compressors, auxiliary lighting solutions, roof racks, and bumpers. As you can tell from the two photographs of the prototype winch-ready bumper, the two companies are off to a great start at a relatively affordable price.
Finished in Integrit powder coat, the bumper is made from welded sheet steel. Compatible with the mid-sized pickup’s existing mounting points, the front bumper is also compatible with every trim level (the XL, XLT, and Lariat) and cabin style (the SuperCab and more spacious SuperCrew) of the Ranger.
The most surprising thing about the winch-ready bumper is that ARB and Ford worked their magic to retain the functionality of the factory sensors and safety systems, enabling Co-Pilot and Adaptive Cruise Controlwith Forward Collision Warning to do their thing. Best of all, the $1, option meets the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
For starters, Fordhas confirmed five compatible winches for the off-road bumper. These are the WARN Industries M, XD, XP, XDC, and VR EVO S. Auxiliary lightbars from the RIGID SR-Series include 6- and inch lenghts, and the bumper can also be equipped with accessories such as an antenna, flag mounts, and jacking points for off-road jacks.
If you want to buy a Ranger right now, the cheapest ones at dealer lots start at $24, for the rear-wheel-drive XL SuperCab with the liter EcoBoost and speed automatic transmission.
