Shopping for a new Ford Ranger?
SEE LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS
Ford's compact pickup continues to come in a full range of model choices, in rear- or four-wheel drive. New vehicle configurations for 2005 include a rear-drive XLT, 4WD Regular Cab with a seven-foot cargo box and a youth-oriented EDGE 4x4 two-door SuperCab model. A "Hot Wheels and Cool Tunes" package available on the EDGE comes with a 510-watt TREMOR MP3 audio system and specific wheels. Also for 2005, skid plates are newly available on 4x4 EDGE and XLT (they're now standard on the FX4) and redesigned wheels are offered on various versions. Otherwise, the Ranger is available with a four-cylinder engine or a choice of two V-6s and with either a manual gearbox or a five-speed-automatic transmission.
