The Ranger is offered in two cab styles: regular and SuperCab. The regular cab comes with either a 6- or 7-foot cargo bed, while the SuperCab comes only with a 6-foot bed. Three trim levels are offered: XL, XLT and Sport.
New for 2010
The Ranger adds roll stability control and side-impact airbags as standard safety equipment. The FX4 off-road model has been dropped in the U.S., though it’s still available in Canada. The XL work truck adds standard air conditioning.
The Ranger’s outward appearance hasn’t changed much since 1998; it remains a compact pickup.
The Ranger interior is bare-bones basic. Leather seating is available whether you get the 60/40-split bench seat or the bucket seats, and there’s an available Pioneer sound system with seven speakers (SuperCab only). The XLT and Sport pay the most attention to style and functionality.
Under the Hood
There are two engine options for the Ranger.
The Ranger offers excellent standard safety features. Ford’s stability system with RSC can help prevent a rollover by using the Ranger’s four-channel antilock braking system to brake individual wheels and can cut engine throttle to try to prevent a rollover. Front side-impact airbags are standard.
