Those figures were pulled directly from the 2002 Ford Ranger Brochure

Seemed odd to me also that a 4X2 regular cab can haul more than a reg cab 4x4 and super cab 4x2 & 4x4

for some odd reason, they rated the 2010 ranger at like 2700 lbs towing. that seems incredibly light even by ranger standards. could they just be underrating to avoid problems by stupid drivers? i know they do that with the manual transmissions and towing

found the reason, on the site, it was referring to 4x2 2.3 auto, which is rated at 2,200 #; the 4.0 is rated at 6,000#. also the 4x2 reg cab auto has the highest rating of all of them, with supercab it is a little less, and 4wd is less than supercab
