If you are looking for a sturdy pickup that won’t carve a massive hole into your wallet, consider the 2011 Ford Ranger Sport. This affordable truck can handle light workloads with ease while still maintaining its reputation for being a good daily driver.
Equipped with a 4.0-liter V6 engine, this compact vehicle produces 207 hp and 238 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with an automatic transmission, it gets 15 mpg combined (14 city/18 highway). According to experts at Edmunds, it scored an impressive five-out-of-five star rating in government crash tests for driver protection in frontal collisions.
The top-of-the-line Sport trim level adds 16-inch alloy wheels and a full-size spare tire. In the event of a flat, you won’t have to drive around on a donut. Heavy-duty gas shocks and a skid plate make the ride much smoother and shield the undercarriage from damage while taking on rougher terrain. Side-step bars make it easy to get in and out, which is especially helpful if you have small children.
