Many still on the road after many years. My friend has a 2003 with over 190,000 miles with only normal maintenance.
2009 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
My 2009 Ford Ranger Sport 4x4 with 4.0L engine now has approx 27,000 km and has not required a single repair. Owners manual suggests 12,000 km oil change interval but I change it on my own at 6,000 and then take it to the dealer at the next 6,000. I provide my own synthetic oil.
2008 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
As said abouve I have owned 2 in the past. And as long as you stay away from the Automatic Tranny, reliability is top notch.
2007 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
No major problems on any Ranger that I have owned. Keep up on basic vehicle needs and the truck will last for a very long time.

The 3.0L engine is not a powerhouse, but is proven design and is durable.
