Welcome to the forum

2007 Mustang base model, came with 4.0l SOHC V6 engine, which uses the same block and heads as your 2001 Rangers 4.0l SOHC
So yes it will bolt to the Ranger transmission

The intakes will have to be swapped, and oil pans

4.0l SOHC engine was used in these models
2001–2012 Ford Ranger
2001–2010 Mazda B4000
1997–2010 Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer
2005–2010 Ford Mustang
