The 2009 Ford Ranger is a compact pickup truck available in regular-cab and longer SuperCab trims. The Ford Ranger SuperCabs feature two rear fold-down seats and reverse-hinged rear doors. Ford Ranger regular cab models are available with 6-ft or 7-ft cargo beds while Ranger SuperCabs only come with the 6-ft bed. For 2009, the 148hp 3.0L V6 is no longer offered. The Ford Ranger's base engine is a 143-hp 2.3L inline 4-cylinder, and a 207-hp 4.0L V6 is available. Either engine can be paired with the manual five-speed or automatic five-speed transmission. The Ranger has a maximum towing capacity of 5980 pounds. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but the Ford Ranger is also available with part-time four-wheel drive that has a low-range gear if you need to go off-road; however, this low-range should not be left engaged when you are back on pavement. Ford Ranger standard features include ABS, an anti-theft system, cruise control and an AM/FM/CD/MP3/satellite radio. The Ford Ranger gets 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway with the 4.0L V6.
