2010 Ford RangerLooking purely at exterior dimensions, the Ranger is about the only true compact truck left in the U.S. market. The Ford Ranger hasn't changed much in nearly two decades, though minor updates have kept its appearance relatively fresh and its feature set mostly up to date. The Ranger really keeps it basic, with no power windows on much of the lineup, and no bed options longer than six feet or true four-door cab. That said, the Ranger is one of just a few trucks that does just fine with an economical four-cylinder engine—yielding EPA ratings up to 27 mpg highway.
