Review 2 of 424

Price Paid:  $17500.00 from Carmax

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Ford Ranger Extended Cab Sport

Strengths:
Fuel economy, strength, comfort, stereo.

Weaknesses:
Passenger room. I list this as a weakness but if you're getting a Ranger you should know already that you're not going to have a lot of passenger room. I can fit one passenger and 2 in the back because of the extended cab but if I were one of the two in the back I'd want to be only there for an hour or two max.

Summary:
I've only had this car for a few days but I've already put close to 850 miles on it. This thing is a BEAST. I've owned a Ford Escort and a Dodge Intrepid in the past and every time I've increased in engine size. This car is by FAR the best I've used. The acceleration is NOTHING like my dad's F-150....I can go from dead stop to 75 miles per hour in no time without spinning my rear tires at all. I don't know what it is but I've fallen in love. The interior cab is nearly silent and the stereo system is to die for.

I would recommend this car for any use. I compared mine with my dad's and it's roughly 6-8 inches shorter in length and only about an inch or two shorter in height. The tires are the same size and the only difference is that my dad's is an extended cab F-150.

My first tank averaged close to 26 miles per gallon. WAY over the list estimate. (95% highway miles)

Can't comment on the hauling power as I haven't needed to haul anything yet though from what I can tell, it should have no problems doing so.

Review 4 of 424

Price Paid:  $12000.00 from Used car dealer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Sport 4x4 4.0L Ext Cab

Strengths:
4.0L motor, Interior and Exterior looks great. Nice seats with lots of leg room.
Good power for pulling my trailer.
A very SOLID feeling ride.

Weaknesses:
Poor gas mileage..........

Summary:
My 3rd Ranger and the best Ranger so far.
The Ext Cab is great for storage of things that need to be kept locked up.
This truck feels so much bigger than my 97 Ranger. The 4.0 L has good power and is very smooth and quiet. I have driven a friends Colorado many times and it just doesnt have the same feeling of quality as the Ranger. The Colorado 5 cyl motor is very BUZZY and the truck just feels cheep.
I am very happy with my Ranger. I think Ford has done a good job with this truck.
