Ranger receives a safety upgrade
The most fuel efficient P/U in America when equipped with the 2.3L I-4 w/ a stick. And one of the poorest rated when equipped with 4WD and both the ancient 4.0L and AT. 23 mpgUS and 15 mpgUS combined respectively. The Ford Ranger P/U has not had a makeover in decades and the 2010 line-up offers little with regards to that. What the new Ranger will offer is a much needed safety upgrade and although it will never a vehicle you want to be in a crash with, at least if you are, it is safer in terms of avoidance and the aftermath if the collison occurs.
