Used Ford Ranger For Sale by aihaozhe2


									Are you in the market for a Ford Ranger for sale? It's not a surprise really. Ford's
compact pickup is one of the most popular trucks in North America, and you count
yourself among many shopping for both new and used Rangers. The reasons why are
obvious. The Ford Ranger is a great utility truck that provides extremely good fuel
performance at an amazing price. What's not to love?

A Brand New Ford Ranger

The consumer with $15K or more to spend can set their eyes on brand new Ford
Ranger for sale. Invoice ranges from $16,800 - $23,800. $15K will get you inside a
basic Ranger with air conditioning, an AM/FM radio, and manual transmission. The
buyer that can afford a couple of thousand more can add keyless entry, full power
accessories, and a CD player with satellite radio. A host of performance and off-road
packages will allow you to take that price up to $24K if you feel like splurging.

Fourth Generation

Ford began manufacturing fourth generation Rangers in 1998, and these are an
excellent option for truck buyers who want a modern compact pickup, but want to pay
far less than the $15K they need for a new one. Consumers can purchase a Ford
Ranger for sale that is five years old with decent mileage at half that price. The truck
will be slightly outdated aesthetically, but it will include most of the functionality and
safety of the modern truck. This won't entirely be the case with the late 90s models, so
most consumers will want to stick with those Rangers that Ford manufactured after
the turn of the century.

Third Generation

Ford manufactured the third generation Ranger between 1993 and 1997. This is where
Ford introduced the aerodynamic styling, so while these Rangers look "older", they
don't necessarily look "old". They also boast Blue Book values that make them
extremely attractive for the bargain hunter, or for the consumer that doesn't want to
pay a lot for a third vehicle. While not quite up to today's standards, the safety
features in these third-gen Rangers is very good, but a lack of a passenger side airbag
prior to 1996 is a problem. Consumers considering a third-gen Ranger should
probably focus on a 1996 or 1997 edition.

Second Generation

Ford manufactured the second generation Ranger from 1989 until 1992. The second
generation brought with it a dramatic facelift that introduced the boxy frontend for
which the Rangers and S10s of the 80s and early 90s became famous. These
second-gen Rangers remain excellent options for the enthusiast who wants a project
with a very low investment. However, the average consumer will find these older
Rangers lacking in many ways. One, it's an unsafe truck by today's standards. Two,
the truck will require too much upkeep for the owner who will take it to the shop each
time it needs work.

First Generation

Introduced in 1983 and manufactured until 1988, Ford's first generation Ranger
remains popular with collectors and enthusiasts. However, like the second generation
that followed it, these make for poor options for the average truck owner due a lack of
safety features and the high level of maintenance required.

Ford has been manufacturing Rangers since 1983, and that means that whatever your
needs, there's a Ford Ranger for sale to meet them. The 2004 Ranger seems to be the
sweet spot for the person who wants maximum value without sacrificing modern
amenities and safety features.
