I just bought a 2002 Ranger Edge 3.0L manual. It has 154K miles but the engine is clean and runs great. I test drove it today and am picking it up tomorrow night, I think. I have been test driving pickups for a while and was looking for a pickup (I'm an artist and need to move large paintings and sculpture, etc) and wanted a fuel efficient, dependable truck. I don't have a lot of money to spend - headed to grad school in CA at the end of August.
Of all the trucks I researched, the Ford Ranger seemed like my truck. I was going for a 4-cylinder but found this 3.0L V6 and thought it was a good compromise on the fuel for the bit of extra power. Going to tow a U-Haul trailer out to CA from NM in a few months.
Very excited to drive my "new" truck home tomorrow night!! And happy to be a part of this forum.
And the 4-cylinder had no extended cab and a steering wheel without tilt. This Edge has extended cab and tilt wheel.
