I just bought a new (used) vehicle! It’s a 2007 Ford Ranger FX4. Here are the specs.
- 4.0L engine 207HP, 238TQ
- Off-road package
- Tow package: capacity 3100 lbs
- SuperCab with clamshell doors
- 2WD, 4WD high, 4WD low
- Automatic transmission
This is my 4th Ford Ranger. My first was a 1996 I4 extra cab. I sold it when I moved to the UK. When I returned stateside, I bought a regular cab 1995. It was so basic that it had a bench seat and non-powered steering. Then I got a 2007 with a 3.0L V6. While I have a lot of fond memories of all the adventures in that, it was really underpowered for what I was doing. I’ve been looking for a replacement for a while that was 4×4 and auto (so the wife can drive). I was considering Nissan Frontiers, Honda Ridgelines, Toyota Tacomas, etc., but I ended up with another Ranger.
