Great truck
"With the 4.0 liter engine this is one peppy little truck that is a tough as nails. For a truck it has a pretty smooth ride and can handle a big load, or a few fishing rods to go over to the river and get some fish. Really good mileage too. "

Had pretty good luck with 2 of 3 Rangers. Wish they could bring back the smaller version. Do not like the larger size of 2019 vehicles. The smaller vehicle is great for the majority of drivers that don't need a big truck, but I understand it's all about making profits. Will probably cause me to slowly shift to another type of vehicle.

Probably over priced for what you get in comparison to F150 but still a nice riding vehicle.

"Good truck...wish I could buy another one that would be as trouble free and enjoyable as this one"
Interior

Easy to understand controls, comfortable for the operator. The only gripe is the instruments are difficult to see in the daytime ( they don't show up well) but are great at night
Exterior

I like the size and look. I like the lower sides of the bed as opposed to the 2019 Ranger with its high sides and reduced visibility through the back glass
Performance

2.0

Plenty of power, smooth operation. I do think the gas mileage could be better considering that larger F-150 pick-ups with V-6 engines get more MPG (or as much) as I do (17-20 MPG)
Family

2.0

Don't carry but two folks--never had the fold-down seats down, but we like the extended cab space we have and use it quite a bit for hauling everything from food to tools
Cost

2.0

Since it is paid for-- and I was able to buy it in 2011 for a good price, I'd say it is cost effective over the new Ranger that can cost you $40,000.00 +

2011 Ford Rangers
"Not too different from a new ford truck. Cost a lot less. I’ve considered upgrading but realize that weighting the cost versus practicality my 2011 is worth keeping. In upstate New York rust is an issue but the ranger frame and body panels are still solid after 9 years of rugged use. I love it. "

Seems to be a good little truck
"I have found this truck to be pretty reliable. Have already had it loaded with trash from an estate sale and it carried it okay. Also had to help move a sofa. It hung over the tail gate some, but did will holding it. I have experienced some bumping when braking hard; however, Foster's Used Cars have offered to pay that that repair. I appreciate that. That's good customer service."

2011 Ford Ranger XLT, Extended cab, two door, 4.0 liter Engine..
"This is my third Ford Ranger in 12 years. I bought it used 6 weeks ago with 42,000 miles, to replace my 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0, Extended cab, 4 door. Already I miss the little back two doors. The extended cab 2 door is not nearly as useful. In fact, its just plain hard to use the back area at all. I cannot even reach the little sliding rear window to see if it works. I am trying to find out if there is any way to allow the passenger seat to go just 2 or 3 inches further forward and make use of the back area more possible. There is easily room to go that far further forward between the front of the seat and dash. The 4.0 L obviously gets a little less mpg. I am getting 21 as an average. My 3.0 L got closer to 26. I also notice the distance between the seat and steering wheel is just a little tighter in the 2011. I have to squeeze a bit to get under the steering wheel. The electric windows and door locks seem to be standard on the 2011. I personally, liked the manual better. They work fine, just manual is what I am used to. The first time I washed it (and it hadn't been washed in about a year) I knocked off a little ¾" chunk of paint on the edge of the cab next to the back window. That NEVER happened with my 99 for sure. I bought some touch up paint and hope that holds the problem in bay in that one area. The 2011 has some "stone guards" at the bottom of the wheel wells on both front and back. They are very much lacking. I am in the process of removing them and replacing them with mud flaps..another $100. out of my pocket to get to a place that Ford Ranger needed to be all along. I used the truck to haul some loading ramps the day before I washed it. And the tiny scratches that the loading ramps made allowed the pressure washer to blast the paint loose down to the primer. This pressure washer is a standard commercial car wash and does not have any particulary high pressure. I washed my 99 there many times with no such problems. The 2001 runs and drives fine, no complaints there. I do notice a little wind noise on the driver side window area which I may be able to fix by moving the door latch in slightly on the door post. I will see when it gets warmer. Do not misunderstand me, I like Rangers and find them more to my liking than lots of the other larger pickups and the other two smaller pickups that are a lot more $$$."
Interior

I liked the hounds tooth seat cover of the 99 better than the black and cream (white?) cover of the 2011.
Exterior

Loosing a bit of paint with a car wash sort of brings this score down.
Performance

Runs and starts fine. Has enough power, but I really cannot tell much difference between the 3.0 and the 4.0.
Family

Unless you have kids to squeeze in the back, or a skinny adult, you cannot easily use the back seats.
Cost

3.0

I personally think that small pickups like this should get in the 28 mpg range....If the F150 can get 20 mpg, then 21 in a Ranger is pretty poor.

"I received almost nothing for my 2008 Ford Ranger and traded up to the 2011 Ford Ranger-4x4-extended cab with 6 Cylinders . They stopped making the Ford Ranger in 2011, but it is a lot better than buying the Ford 150 cause It is easier to park and has a smoother ride."
Interior

It has these Black and Gray cloth seats that shows all the dirt. Coffee cup holder is so low down to the floor and small . Just average type of Pick-up . Has a history of rusting under the door and cannot be solved except to repaint it every year.

The four wheel drive is great with or without Snow tires. I would never go down to a Four cylinder again. Six Cylinders really makes a difference.

The extended cab is hardly enough room to put anybody, but is great to hold Groceries .

Not as good as the four cylinder , but it is worth the cost of gas to have that extra power to climb or pass when you need to .
