Regular Car Reviews On The 2007 Ford Ranger: Video


Hey, ‘member the Ford Ranger compact pickup truck? Sure, you ‘member; it was the smaller, cheaper alternative to the full-size F-150 introduced by Ford back in 1983, and sold in the US market through 2012.

It was at that point that Ford (rather inaccurately) pronounced the small-truck market dead or dying, discontinuing the Ford Ranger in the United States even while it evolved and soldiered on in other markets – notably, Australia. Since then, of course, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have sold remarkably well, prompting the Blue Oval to rethink its early exit from the segment and hatch plans to reintroduce the Ford Ranger for 2019.

In the meantime, there are plenty of old, used examples to be had, like the one just appraised in the latest episode of Regular Car Reviews. That truck happened to be a 2007 example in white, with a Mazda 5-speed manual transmission and a 3.0-liter, “low-revving, slow-revving, low-power, high-maintenance” Vulcan V6, as Mr. Regular refers to it.

“These trucks are designed to be assembled cheaply and disposed of after ten-thousand miles,” he says in his review. But of course, there’s more to the review than just that; watch the latest installment of Regular Car Reviews above to get Mr. Regular’s full take on the 2007 Ford Ranger.

    I agree with everything Mr. Regular said about the engine s power it s the slowest thing I ve ever driven aside from a Scion xD. The styling isn t great but honestly I like that it s plain and simple just like a truck should be. Whether the trip or move I ve done in the ranger was 20 or 500 miles my ranger has been completely reliable.

    The Ranger now features Ford’s Personal Safety System, which includes front airbags, a tire pressure monitor and SecuriLock passive anti-theft system.
