#1 of 1 4cyl Ranger vs 4 cyl Mazda - differences?
Jul 15, 2010 (2:44 pm)
What are the primary differences between these two trucks?
I am considering a 5 speed manual with the 2.3 litre 4 cyl.
The Mazda place said their truck has a std sliding rear window, builtin trailer hitch in the bumper and sound insulation in the floors etc. Does anyone know if the last two things are true?
I find it hard to believe that Ranger has zero sound insulation. And i could have sworn i saw a Ranger last year new on the lot, a base truck with A/C that had a rear bumper hitch.
The Mazda place guy tried to tell me that it will tow 3500lb. and i know that is not true. So don't want to believe the rest of what he says. The rear window slider I know is true.
As a point of interest, get a load of this. I went to the parts counter at Mazda to random price a part. I picked the alternator. The Ranger's was 232. The Mazda's was 670. !
I had heard many years ago that Mazda electrics were extra expensive, alternators, starters etc. Lo and behold it is STILL the case!
