Default Is the ranger sport worth the extra money??

Is the ranger sport worth the extra money over a xlt?? Just wondering because of the price difference. I haven't noticed a whole lot of differences between the two. Any input?

The biggest difference is the sport is all color matched and the xlt has chrome on it. Its more personal opinion. Also the sport in ext cab has 4x4 suspension weither its is a 4x4 or not. the regcab sport is a 2wd suspension. So that is also something to consider. Weither you are going for a more offroading type look or a street look. I'd go xlt if your wanting a street look and sport if you want a more offroadable look.

Several salesmen told me, the sport is basically an xlt without the badge. But, only the sport package had big rebates this year.

The sport model here was supercab only with torsion bars.

Sport is a step up from the XLT

yeah i HATE carpet. After 8 years of cleaning carpets and stupid floor mats that get hung under the brake pedal i reallly like the idea of the rubber coated floor. I had a ranger back in 02 before i got into mustangs..a chrome yellow stepside edge that i loooved. Hence why im going back to a ranger. My dad offered to trade me his 04 f150 but its just too dang big!

When I got my ranger, it was either XLT or Sport. I went with sport cause of the looks and it rides higher even on 2wd. I have had lots of fun with my ranger sport! The possibilities are endless! It's a lot of fun to drive.
