Default Re: New 2011 XLT 4X4 Price?

The gas mpg is an issue with the 4X4, but my wife has a 1.5 mile commute to her office 5 days a week and when I go back to work my commute will be less than 5 miles. ( This truck is going to be in her name, so she has to be happy with it. )

One question: is there a big difference in the insurance between a 2WD and a 4WD Ranger? I bought a new Nissan Hardbody 4WD in 1993 and I don't remember insurance cost being much of a factor.

On my 97, with a few issues on my record I pay 425 for 6 months. I don't know if that helps any. My 2wd GMC I only pay 200. Those are rounded figures. They both have the same coverage. The Ford is listed as my primary driver though, with 90 miles a day listed in the insurance policy as my commute. The GMC may see 1000 miles a year atm, because it is back in Washington, I have the Ford in Tennessee with me.

That's a pretty good deal on a new truck. Considering that they can't decide on the ranger's fate and the fact an F150 with nearly the same features will cost about $40 grand that's not bad.

Actually an insurance man told me that 4WD can add about 10% to your insurance bill because people tend to get ****y with their driving. Plus in winter, if you're not carefull you'll spin out in a 4WD quicker than 2WD. That's what I was told by an insurance adjuster.

That is kinda what I was getting at. I just didn't have exact figures. I have never had to much issue with spinning out in a 4wd in the winter...maybe because I only used it in winter when I really needed it and I drive like an old man... lol

Thumbs up Re: New 2011 XLT 4X4 Price?

Tonight, my wife and I bought a new Ranger Sport and we pick it up tomorrow afternoon!!!! We bought a 2011 oxford white supercab 4 door 2WD with an automatic transmission. We are happy with the price and the interest rate we received.

From the drivers seat, I love the way the white gauges look with the white paint job.
