2008 Ford Ranger Sport 4x4 Super Cab 4.0 V6 from North America
This is like a sports car for truck people. There is nothing I would change about it
I have owned pickup trucks since 1978, this is the best yet. I own an F-150 and Taurus, and if I had to choose, this is my favorite vehicle.
I bought it in April, 2009, with 3,600 miles on it, and now have 19,500 on it. I try to drive one of my others, but it is hard to stay out of it.
The engineering and drive train are remarkable. The 4.0 V-6 has plenty of power, the 5 speed automatic shifts perfectly. It has the 4.10 limited slip rear gear, so you must be careful on a wet road, but I baby it any way, but just put a lot of miles on it.
I have it serviced every 3 to 4,000 miles and tires rotated, it has not needed anything but windshield washer fluid. It has absolutely no leaks, and underneath is as clean as the day I purchased it.
The sport package really sets it apart from other vehicles, and the fit and finish is immaculate.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
