Are there ever any changes to the Ranger?
I think they will revamp them in 2006.
I can let you know all the changes by tomorrow if you really want me to.
It's a great truck. It's beat out Toyota every year in performance and relablity in Consumer Reports since 1994. Well technically thats through 2002. I haven't looked at it since then. My dad's had them and had nothing but great experinces.
I drove a 2000, by far one of the worst vehicles I have ever come across. Shifting was awkward and notchy, clutch was terrible, driving position was horrid and uncomfortable, visibility was bad, it had electrical problems, simply one of the worst or the worst vehicle I have driven.
Rangers and b-series mazda trucks have the worst clutches ever.
the new tacoma is coming out soon
These Rangers can take some serious abuse, from what our commericial parts delivery drivers do to them when driving them, to letting the FIRST oil change lapse until 20,000 miles. We turn them in for new ones once they break 100,000 miles, but they never require any repairs under that abuse.
I'm pretty sure the new Tacoma is already out in Asia and is supposed to be really nice, but right now in North America I'd go for the D-MAX... er.. Colorado. Ranger/B-series is so cramped inside...
that is by far the dumbest name to put on a truck
Xtreme is worse.
splash just sounds fruity... and everything is extreme now a days but splash is still worse imo
yea....but....a foreign truck??? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A> Ill take the Colorado or canyon.
The new Dakota is also to come out soon. They don't have a regular cab though.
the colorado is ugly as hell.
Edge is a better name than Splash.
I bought my Ranger new in '94. I've had it now for ten years. While it's only at 106k, it has survived in every environment from 3 years in the AZ sun to 3 years on the eastern seaboard to 4 years at 13k feet in Colorado. I've towed a two horse trailer, 3000lb fifth wheel, and hooked a 2500lb, 8ft Uhaul to move 600 miles North. Its a damn good truck. I'm on my second set of brakes, and I just replaced the MAF. That's it. The only complaint I have is that the standard cab is too small (you can't put the seat back more than about 15 degrees) and at about 95k miles, the baffles in my muffler broke loose so it rattles a bit under acceleration.
Other than that, the truck runs as strong as it did the day I bought it.
And yet the F150 is even better, My uncles 89 F 150 has 450,000+ miles on it, same engine, never rebuilt!
So what! this is the Ford ranger we are talking about not the F150. I think you wanna argue with him again!
Im not arguing with him, I like Both the ranger and the F 150, Im just complimenting Ford on another level, basically reminding them that the F150 is also a very durable truck!
Geez sorry if it sounds like Im against what he said!
