It's been around for a long time - fourteen years - but this year marks some important new developments in the line up for the 2002 Ford Ranger Pickup Truck. More power and improved handling make this tough customer difficult to compete with, and distinctive design lends to an attractive curbside appeal.

Available Models
Four sturdy models hit the road this year - the 2002 Ford Ranger XL, Ranger Edge, 2002 Ford Ranger XLT, and the all-new FX4 premium off-road package. No need to look any further than this impressive line up to meet your every demand in a pickup. With a full range of luxury, performance, and safety features covering a wide range of specifications, you'll find the vehicle that's perfect for you.

Interior Features
Inside the spanking-new 2002 Ford Ranger FX4 are special 4x4 mats, special sport bucket seats and upholstery, driver and passenger side grab handles, an eye-catching interior trim, and two available interior colors. Among the amenities are power windows, power door locks, an AM/FM stereo with dual media stereo, speed control, and tilt steering wheel wrapped in genuine leather for sporty good looks.

The 2002 Ford Ranger Edge boasts air conditioning, a four-speaker AM/FM stereo with CD player, and a heavy-duty interior with maslite floor that enables you to clean up mud and dirt effortlessly.

Exterior Features
From the outside, the FX4 wears a heavy-duty skid plate, stainless steel tow hooks in the front and one black tow hook in the rear, and gorgeous forged aluminum wheels with exposed stainless lug nuts. The Styleside box comes in four colors with black exterior trim. This vehicle is equipped with dual power outside mirrors and a sliding rear window.

Meanwhile, the Edge sports a monochromatic exterior in bold color choices, and features tow hooks on the 4WD models, along with fog lamps and an attractive mesh grille. Thick bed rail covers and a raised power dome hood put the emphasis on the sheer power of these vehicles.

A refined 2.3-litre inline four-cylinder engine is standard, with an optional 4.0-litre, SOHC V6 that pumps out 207 horsepower offered up. The standard transmission is a heavy-duty five-speed manual in all three Ranger trucks, with a five-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift strategy is also available.

The suspension has undergone a number of improvements and updates, leading to a marked reduction in noise, vibration, and harshness of bumps in the road.

Safety and Security
The 2002 Ford Ranger is equipped with anti-lock brakes, large rotors, and rear drum brakes combined with electronic brake force distribution for maximized control and rapid braking. Passengers are protected by a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, three-point seatbelts, and head restraints.
