    HELLO Considering purchase of ford ranger 2007 model opinions .
    It is a new body shape and mechanical package for 07
    Model i am considering is 4x2 but it is the derated 4x4 model therefore it has bigger brakes ,bigger engine bigger, towing capacity than the base model which is very poor by comparison .

    specs 3.0lt diesel direct injection ,twin cam , variable valve timing , 4 valves per cylinder , intercooler ,variable vane on turbo [operated by computer]
    HP 160
    Torque 380 Nm from 1800 rpm [do not Know ft lbs ]

    Towing capacity over 7000lbs with sway control fitted
    [all trailers over 1600 lbs require brakes it is law ]
    [trailers over 4400lbs require brakes all wheels ]
    Towing weight 4 my application is 4000lbs

    Tray size is 8 ft x 6 ft [flat style fits above wheels ]

    opinions ???????

    You are fortinate to have diesel as an option. Diesel in not an option in North America on the Ranger. It looks like a winner to me.
