Ford Ranger has been America?s best-selling compact pickup for 16 years running. Nearly a third of all compact pickups sold are Rangers and more than 5 million Rangers have been built since the first one rolled out in 1982. For 2004, Ranger features a sporty new interior, revised exterior styling and a new Pioneer audio system. And Ranger's suspension has been retuned for improved ride comfort. Prices for basic work trucks start under $16,000 and there's a wide range of options available, including a powerful 4.0-liter V6 engine, a five-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive. Edge, Tremor, and FX4 models are available. Buyers should watch for big cash rebates that can substantially reduce the MSRPs reported here.
