What's the difference between the 2001's and the 2011's!!

I purchased a new truck in October and I like that they haven't changed the ranger much over the years but I was curious what has changed on the ranger in the last 10 years. The best thing about these trucks is they still drive like a truck.

Donīt know in US models, but in LATAM ones they changed the rear shock absorbers position from inside the frame to outside the frame... just like the F150. also added a rear sway bar.

Took away the passenger airbag disconnect. Made it react to a weight sensor. Too little like a backpack or child and it's off. Too much like an adult and it's on.

Yes, the 4-wheel disc brakes are great! The 2010s had them too I know.

It's amazing how a vehicle can go 10 years without much change. It's hard to build on perfection
