5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
I would always like to get better gas mileage but considering mine is 4WD and has the larger engine, the gas mileage is not that bad. I would not want to give up power to get better gas mileage. I do feel Ford could improve on fuel economy. see full Ford Ranger review

5-speed manual RWD
V-6 fuel economy in a 4 cyl. No matter what I do it gets 20 mpg. should be better see full Ford Ranger review
