Expert Quotes:

truck desperately needs an update
MyRide.com

due to its aged design, it falls short in many other areas
Edmunds

Although periodic minor updates have kept the Ranger's front end looking fresh, the 2010 Ford Ranger appears pretty much the same as it did back in 1993, when the truck was last fully redesigned (although the interior has been updated since). That said, the design has aged well and it’s almost reached the "classic" stage at this point.

Some reviewers like the Ranger’s classic tough-lite styling, but others just can't get past the lack of a complete update.

ConsumerGuide says the "basic design is more than a decade old and shows it," and MyRide.com opines that this "truck desperately needs an update." Cars.com likes the look of the Ranger Sport trim, asserting that it "conveys the assertive look and ride height of a four-wheel-drive Ranger at a lower price."

Cars.com also notes that the Ranger’s "larger fog lights improve visibility." Automedia labels the Ranger’s look, after a few minor updates, "a tad tougher and bolder." In certain trim levels, the Ranger does a good job of faking tougher credentials.

Compliments are even fewer and further apart regarding the interior of the Ford Ranger. "The Ranger's interior was last overhauled during the Clinton administration,” snipes Edmunds, “and the first term at that." The Edmunds reviewer goes on to note that "due to its aged design, it falls short in many other areas, making just about any other small or midsize pickup a better choice."

Conclusion

The 2010 Ford Ranger has gone so long without an exterior redesign that if you’re young enough, you might even think of it as a classic.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
