Drove a Ranger after a long while.
I went and test drove a 2009 XLT supercab with the 2.3 4cyl. Interested only because of mileage. How laggy the start, especially if you have to gun it after turning lol. Overall descent power in the mid range. Doesn't it still have the throttle cable setup? If so the cable mod and tune would make this little engine that could...really could :)
I'll definetly opt for the 4.0, even if it's a gas hog.
