The Ford Ranger is a great vehicle to own if you’re looking for an affordable compact pickup that is easy to maintain and drive. Most of Ford Ranger’s competitors are well-established names. This has increased the pressure on Ford. However, Ford has responded extremely well to this pressure by offering affordable pricing, fresh styling and ongoing improvements to keep its pickup truck competitive. Furthermore, the 2017 Ford Ranger is one of the only three pickups to offer a regular-cab configuration. The other two pickup trucks are Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado. Over the years, the Ford Ranger has given its established contemporaries from Toyota, Nissan, and Dodge a tough time and this trend are set to continue in 2017. There are many reasons for owning the 2017 Ford Ranger. Let’s look at some of them.
2017 Ford Ranger – Decent Amount of Interior Space:
Compared to its previous models, the new Ford Ranger is more spacious. Furthermore, it encompasses seats that come with new fabric choices and deeply sculpted backs. A decent amount of legroom is what you’ll find in this vehicle. In the SuperCab model, you’ll find the considerable amount of space behind the seats. You can use this space to store groceries or luggage. The second row of this compact pickup features flip-down jump seats. As a result, passengers often feel cramped in the back seats. This is the reason the Ford Ranger isn’t recommended for longer trips.
The 2017 Ford Ranger comes equipped with a number of features. This includes a tachometer, power steering, electronic stability control, 60/40 vinyl split bench seat, anti-lock brakes (ABS), AM/FM radio stereo, a tire pressure monitoring system, dual side mirrors and two front cup holders.

Fresh looking Exterior:
