2007 Ford Ranger review with picture

The 2007 Ford Ranger model has been around for awhile and it hasn’t taken many steps forward. In an industry where the pressure is on the makers to move forward as fast as possible and contain the best technology and features and be as edgy as possible, the Ford Ranger just doesn’t cut it and is doomed to remain a thing of the past. In practically every way, the Ford Ranger’s rivals outdo it by quite a bit, making it light on the competition. It’s true that, while the Ranger may be lacking in other areas, it still knows its way around off the road though, so if that is your priority, it might actually be a good choice.

The 2007 Ford Ranger’s 4.0 liter V6 engine performs well and has plenty of power, going strong and competent. If you want to go off the road and be treated well by your truck, you should opt for the FX4 packages, which increase its off road abilities. On the inside, there isn’t a lot of room, and the ride is uncomfortable and jerky. It handles badly and its brakes are unresponsive. Compared to other trucks, it fails to provide the safety, a necessary component of an off the road vehicle, and it also doesn’t have many of the funner features.

There is a lot of new in 2007 for the Ford Ranger, including

  • dual stage front air bags
  • front passenger sensor
  • tire pressure monitoring system
  • anti theft system
  • MP3 compatible CD players
  • auxiliary input jack

You can also get Sirius satellite radio as an add on feature for extra if you have any of the XL trim levels of the Ford Ranger. For the two wheel drive STX there’s a less powerful 2.3 liter four cylinder engine to replace the 3.0 liter V6 that they had before. For the XL trim level, there is an option to add skid plates, and the sixteen inch wheels have been redone to look and run better. The warranty has also been extended to five years and/or sixty thousand miles.

Cheers,
