Highlighting a more powerful engine than previous models, it has a 6.0 cylinder.
2000 Ford Ranger XL
My Ford Ranger Edge Edition (4X4), 6.0 cylinder has been a solid car for my lifestyle. Weather I want to go camping or just drive a few hours to hike a trail, it has done a good job on staying consistent with engine durability. I have about 188,0000 miles on it and I have my oil changed regularly, every 3K-5K miles. I have taken my Ford Ranger on long distance camping trips and it has not failed to get me where I need to go. Even though the mileage is not great, at 15-17 MPH highway, I still can say that it is fun to drive and has enough power to get through uneven terrain.
The interior is decent, with a CD disc changer and full AM/FM radio. The speakers are also louder than you expect. The seats are comfortable as you sit higher up, while power windows and locks are a nice plus. There is enough space to sit two individuals in the cab area and can remain comfortable with a sliding cab window.
The Ford Ranger Edge Edition is a great car to have for simple living, or not. It has the ability to go across uneven terrain such as sand and dirt, with easy switch to 4X4 capabilities.
