The Ford Ranger has built a solid reputation as a rugged workhorse of a compact pickup. While many of the entry-level pickups from other manufacturers have moved up in size, roominess, features and refinement, the Ranger maintains its position as a true compact pickup that offers solid value for the money. Though quite dated now, the Ranger remains a good, reliable, proven truck with worthwhile features and attractive pricing. Two engines are available, a 2.3-liter four-cylinder and a 4.0-liter V6. Each engine is available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The four-cylinder engine with manual transmission and two-wheel drive has EPA fuel economy ratings of 21/26 mpg City/Highway, making it most fuel-efficient pickup on the market. In addition to its excellent fuel economy, it also has a 7,500-mile service interval for routine maintenance, such as oil changes. The 2.3-liter dohc four-cylinder makes 143 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque. The 4.0-liter V6 makes 207 horsepower and 238 pound-feet of torque. Four-wheel drive is available, but only with the V6 engine. For 2010, there are only a few changes, but they are significant from a safety standpoint. AdvanceTrac electronic stability control with Roll Stability Control (RSC) becomes standard equipment; this system can help prevent skidding and roll-over conditions. And, also as standard equipment, there are new combination side airbags, designed to offer head and torso protection. The 2010 Ford Ranger comes in three body styles: Regular Cab, SuperCab, SuperCab with four doors. Most versions have a 6-foot cargo bed, but a 7-foot bed is available on the Regular Cab with two-wheel drive. There are three trim levels: XL, up-level XLT, and the sportier-appearing Sport version. ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. This increases the vehicles ability to turn while braking. Stability control Stability control automatically senses when the vehicles handling limits have been exceeded and reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle. Front-impact airbags Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been designed to protect the head during a frontal crash. Side impact airbags Side impact airbags for the front seats have been designed to protect the torso during a side impact collision. Pretensioners Seatbelt pretensioners automatically tighten seatbelts to place the occupant in the optimal seating position during a collision. Security system The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that will prevent the engine from starting if the correct original manufacturer key is not used.
