87 ranger, 4 cylinders, 5 speed manual trans, extended cab. it can go over 100 mph, don't know how far over, still has pedal left. it can haul a full load of sand, my wife constantly overloads the rig. it can carry 4, if two are kids, using the 'jump' seats it can get 25 mpg plus on the highway don't need 4wd in the winter, i fill the box w/snow from the driveway only has 150,000 miles on it. unfortunetly, it can't do all at the same time, biggest complaint, not just ford, but all new cars n trucks have pee poor paint.
