2010 Ranger XLT

Is there anything truly new about the newest Rangers? I had on 01 before (as most of you might remember) and am wondering what is new about the new trucks.

The one I am considering is an XLT Supercab, 4x2, w/4.0 V6. Has anything changed with the engine (intake, etc), exhaust, suspension, etc.

I'd like to know asap. Thank you

Jason

Same truck, same engine, same power, same everything except the rear disk brakes as mentioned above. Also the fog lamp switch is part of the headlight switch. Oh can't forget the stability control. If you are looking to swap stuff from your old truck to a newer truck it should all work except for the intake.

I'd go for the 150 although I personally don't like the look of the current model.

The rear end does look to be a different unit altogether. Also has side airbags which means the seat was redesigned with a movable headrest. Foglight switch has been integrated since 2006.

The 4L is not worth it unless you are looking to get all the power options for the same price as a regular cab XL F150. If you can afford beyond the base XL F150 and need/want the power, then do it.

I got my 2.3L to keep forever because gas is never going down again. Supply is limited. Once this one is paid off I will get a Stang with either the Ecoboost V6 or 5.0L V8, and if gas gets horrendous I'll sell it or default.

Correction on the foglite switch, my 06' foglite switch is still on the radio bezel. As to the OP, the only real difference as stated before, the rear disc breaks and the side curtain airbags are the additions. The FX4 was dropped and now the Sport is the top of the line. Also the old mazda 15" wheel is available on the XLT. But it comes mounted with 235s even though its 4X4!

The 10s have a pull out headlight switch im fairly certain...

And the 5.4s get better mileage than the 4.0s

Ok, then it must have been 07. The 2010s have the same light switch as the 07.

But i got my 09 with a bunch of options for less than 17K brand new. Youd be looking at a used F150 for that price that will have upwards of 40K miles on the 5.4

The 15K id save vs a new F150 would buy 5 years of fuel.

what about the XLT? a sport 4x4 is higher in trim then a XLT 4x4 with power options? i don't think so.....

go look at the sport, it's all vinyl floors and cloth seats.

fogs are on the h/l switch since 07, from what i can see, rear disks, side curtain airbags, and TRACTON CONTROL!!!! i have pics of the switch on my phone, i'll add them to photobucket on my next break at work here... i am 90% FX4 was NOT dropped, and that it is still available, i was looking at one, the FX4 level II was dropped for 2009 i think it was...

FX4 was dropped, unless someone forgot to tell Fords website. You can only configure an XLT or a Sport in 4x4.

FX4 is gone. The Sport is a lateral move from the XLT is how I see it. The only thing that is upgraded is the rear end and tires, and since they're Goodyears, they're not much of an upgrade IMO. I guess you can consider the body color grille an upgrade if that's your thing. I prefer the chrome.
