This is a short wheelbase 4x4 pickup with a powerful fuel-injected
motor, versatile five-speed, and loaded with the best features
(including A/C). So this 1991 Ford Ranger XLT gives you a classic
presentation with a ton of work-ready attitude, and it's all
offered for a value price.
It's hard to come by a true classic pickup built for work and play,
but this on captures the attitude perfectly. It has that classic
Ranger style with nice upper-level XLT details, like the chrome
bumpers, side strobe stripes, and bright alloys. The red paint
looks good in the sunshine, so it looks fine passing people on the
highway. But as you get closer there are more signs of use, and
that's seems right for a pickup like this. You shouldn't be afraid
to use it to the fullest, especially in a truck with this much
function. You have a taller 4x4 stance, a rubber bed mat for the
larger loads, and there's a trailer hitch rear bumper and towing
mirrors to add even more utility.
The interior is stock, clean, and loaded. It starts with the
factory seating that has the cool striped cloth. You have high-back
bucket-like comfort for two, and the center gives you the option of
a jump seat or an armrest console. You've got great factory pieces,
like the AM/FM/cassette stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning.
And like a true classic truck, there are side vent windows and
sliding rear glass for the old-school breezes through the cab. The
classic dual-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and
it provides a clear view to the full gauge package w/handy
Under the hood is the clean and correct presentation of the
4.0-liter V6. Not only is this the largest motor of this Ranger
series, but it also has fuel-injection. That means the best in all
around power and steadfastness. And the five-speed manual
transmission is a newer unit that puts you in confident full
control of it all. And for an all-around good driving experience on
the road, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, and
overdrive. It all makes for an attractive classic pickup that still
remains quite handy today.
There is just something special about the way a Ranger 4x4 of this
era combines the right usefulness and the right size. And this one
has been given some solid investments to keep it practical and
useful. That makes for a great package offered at a great price.
