Major changes included: The Ranger is Ford's compact pickup truck offering. The third generation Ranger saw a host of changes from the previous model, starting with a wider cab selection, better engine and transmission options and an improved exterior design. Several trim levels were offered, including STX, XL, XLT and Splash. Both a long and short bed were offered with two different cab sizes to choose from (regular and supercab). Available engines included a 98-hp 2.3-liter four-cylinder, 145-hp 3.0-liter V6 and 160-hp 4.0-liter V6. This generation was only available with an automatic transmission, but both 4-speed and 5-speed versions were offered. Four-wheel drive was optional on all trim levels.
