2002 Ford Ranger XLT With Just 29K Miles Up For Auction

In recent months, quite a few nice, low-mile, last-gen Ford Ranger pickups have surfaced for sale at various online auction sites, including a 3k-mile 2004 Ranger Edge and a 5k-mile 2011 XLT, to name just a couple. With the values of these models quickly rising, it seems as if there are still plenty of folks pining for a simple, compact pickup, which is something that’s rather hard to come by these days. Now, this 2002 Ford Ranger XLT up for auction at Cars & Bids continues that trend by offering bidders yet another nice, low-mile alternative to the newer mid-size pickup of the same name.

This 2002 Ford Ranger XLT has a few more miles on the clock that those aforementioned examples – 29k miles, to be exact – but that’s still a rather low figure for any vehicle that’s over 20 years old at this point. There is some wear and tear present, as one would expect, including some scratches and paint chips, and the pickup was apparently involved in an accident back in 2003 that required repairs to the right rear. Otherwise, there aren’t many bones to pick here.

Finished in Harvest Gold, this 2002 Ford Ranger XLT looks quite nice and doesn’t have too many modifications, outside of a bug deflector, a bed cover, and a drop-in bedliner. The outside is adorned with running boards, 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and a trailer hitch, while the Prairie Tan interior is fitted with cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear jump seats, power windows and door locks, a CD player, and air conditioning.

Power for this particular Ranger comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 4.0L V6, originally rated to generate 207 horsepower and 238 pound-feet of torque, which flows to either the rear or all four wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. Given its relatively clean history, we imagine that bidders will be interested in this rather nice Ranger, but it’ll also be interesting to see if its prior accident ultimately suppresses its value and keeps it from reaching the height that other recently listed pickups have obtained.
