The modern Ford Ranger pickup is not as compact as today’s Nice price or no dice Club Cab Edition. It is also much more expensive. Let’s see if that price makes for a Ranger who will never be alone.
If you are a fan of the movie, Back to the futurethen you certainly remember Marty McFly’s incredulity fondly finished Doc Brown’s decision to do a time machine with a DeLorean.
Settings made to 2003 Volkswagen Beetle which we looked at yesterday, it may not have been as perfect as Doc Brown’s creation, but it was still interesting. Perhaps a strange fungus under the toe can be interesting in the same way. However, the car’s price of $7,500 generated almost zero interest. and as a result he fell into a huge loss of 95 percent of No Dice.
One has to wonder if the good folks at Ford Motor Company really like having the Ranger in the company’s lineup? After all, There’s the argument that every Ranger sold is an F-Series left on the lot, and that doesn’t bode well for Ford’s efforts to keep the larger truck at the top of the sales charts. Introducing the smaller and more daring Maverick-bodied truck below the Ranger’s spot in the lineup likely didn’t do the midsize any favors either. Sales of the current generation Ranger are around 100,000 per year here in the US. many trucks, but such a number represents only about a third of what the older, smaller Ranger achieved in sales in its heyday. In 2003, when sales of the old model began to decline, Ford still managed to ship more than 200,000 Rangers each year.. Today we will consider one of them. Well see what all the fuss is about and if the old ranger still has any of it the mojo is gone which at one time made it the best-selling small truck on the market.
It 2003 Ford Ranger Edge offers Club Cab and 4X4 transmission. This last part of the kit is kind of interesting, as the Edge package was originally designed to offer 4X4 looks on the cheaper 4X2 chassis. Ford added 4WD to the options list halfway over the edge packaging model run, thus completing this circle.
Other interesting features include a 4-liter SOHC version of the Ford Cologne V6 and a five-speed manual gearbox from Mazda. The V6 produced a respectable 207 horsepower and 238 lb-ft of torque this model year, the highest numbers you could get in a compact truck at the time. According to the announcement, the mechanicals are still pretty fresh, have only put the truck on 86,000 miles in its lifetime.
The rest of the truck seems to be in good shape for all these years and miles. Monochrome The zinc yellow paint is still coming off and apart from a small dent on the passenger door and what looks like chewing gum (ugh) on the front bumper everything looks good right below The Cooper tires appear to have decent tread and run on factory alloy wheels.
Inside, things are just as well preserved, although the stickers and snood on the steering wheel may need to be thrown out as soon as possible. The same could be said for a poorly fitting mat, but I think it might be a preventative measure considering the truck is now sunny Arizona House. A couple of cute folding seats are installed in the rear of the cabin and are accessed via convenient half-doors that open suicide-style.
The truck has a clear title and the ad explains that the truck is being sold because the current owner’s son bought a new truck, making it redundant. I wonder if it’s new was there another ranger?
Given its size and features, this could be the perfect truck for someone who wants to start the pickup lifestyle but doesn’t want to dive headfirst into it. At $7,000, could it be a bargain, too?
Do you think this Ranger Edge is worth the $7,000 asking price? how is it sitting Or, is it a small truck with a price that is too much for his brit?
