My Ford Ranger Keeps Going!

My 96 Ford Ranger supercab 4×4 just rolled over 250,000 miles. The 4.0 engine and 5 speed transmission are the original. I hope to get another quarter of a million miles out of it.

Ryan H I've always changed the oil at around 3000 to 4000 miles and I just recently switched to a high mileage oil. It seems to have helped the small oil leak I had. I still never have to add any oil between changes though

john m why if they are still running great get rid of them, at today's prices, it's cheaper too fix therm than buy new.

Kenneth Robinson Apparently this fellow has properly maintained his Ranger to get such great mileage. I purchased a 1987 Ranger with the 4 cylinder engine. After 324,000 miles i simply tired of driving it and bought a larger truck. In 1999 I purchased a used 1997 Mustang with 43,000 miles. I just recently retired the Mustang after logging 392025 miles, replacing it with a 2012 Taurus. The engine still ran great and got 27 mpg. Needless to say, I like my Fords. Ken Robinson

I have been a long standing Ford Ranger fanatic.  I am on my third Ranger. My current Ranger has been a true blessing, she is about to turn 220,000 miles.  I have maintained her well and being a 4x4 she has seen many mountains and fields.  I was, and am still, very dishearted to see the Ford Family drop the Ranger line and not consider reintroduction of this truck in 2015.  I prefer the smaller truck frame for convenience and ease of parking when not out in the field or mountains.  I will say I wish Ford would quickly consider offering this size of truck again, and to do so in a 4 door 4-5 person size with small and larger bed sizes.  When I add up the options I would like to have on my new truck (while in the F150 catagory) the price is just too much.  Two of your Import competitors offer this size of truck, but I really honestly hate to go this route.  Even if Ford offered an incentive to keep me on I'd be settling for a truck size I'm not interested in.  Please reconsider offering the Ranger format again - and soon.  Not sure how many more miles or trails my Ranger can take!.
