Regular Cab Fans Must Bid On This 8K-Mile 2011 Ford Ranger

We’ve seen a host of nice, low-mile, last-gen Ford Ranger pickups emerge for sale in recent months, including a 14k-mile 1999 model with a manual gearbox, a lifted 2001 regular cab pickup, and a very nice 64k-mile 2002 model, to name just a few. Now, that trend continues with this newly-listed regular cab 2011 Ford Ranger, which has just 8k original miles and is currently up for grabs over at Bring a Trailer.

2011 Ford Ranger XL - Interior 001

This particular 2011 Ford Ranger is a pretty basic, bare-bones pickup, which makes it even more attractive for some that miss that type of vehicle. Finished in base XL trim and regular cab, two-wheel drive guise, it wears a rather bright hue dubbed Tonka Yellow, which is contrasted by precisely zero chrome – just a black grille, bumpers, and mirror housings, along with silver 15-inch wheels wrapped with 225/70 Continental Contitrac tires.

The same goes for the spartan interior, which is equipped with Medium Dark Flint vinyl seats, black vinyl flooring, and manual crank windows, albeit with a few amenities that include air conditioning, an AM/FM radio, and cupholders, at least. Otherwise, this is a typical work truck, the kind that saw use by many small businesses back in its heyday.

Power for this 2011 Ford Ranger likewise comes from the base 2.3L I-4 engine, originally rated to produce a rather modest 143 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via five-speed automatic transmission. Otherwise, there aren’t many flaws to note – save for some typical underbody corrosion. Ultimately, this basic Ranger pickup is about as nice as they get, and with so few miles on the clock, it should be good to go for a long time to come, too.

    As a long time (retired) Ford salesman the decession by Ford for the 2012 model year to not offer the at that time, all new Ranger in the US was a mystery.
    The public is ‘well the Ranger is discontinued’, to which we said, only in America, the whole world gets a great new one. But the bigger thing at the dealerships was “why?”. Ford repels responce “the F150 gets better mileage than in the past”, our response was that it was about the size.
    Ford put big incentives on the Ranger that last year. They were a great bargain. 2 years later salesman had a waiting list for buyers of Ranger trade ins.
