Default Why so affordable?

The Ford Ranger is obviously a great automobile. I'm wonder why they are so affordable. I just bought mine for $3300 with 78K. As far as I know, I'm going get another 175K out of it.

How is it possible for them to be worth not so much.

prob because the Ranger interior hasnt been updated since like 1997
the Frame since 1998
the exterior since 2001 (except mild touches)
Powertrain since 2001
Sound system since 2001
Cab configurations since the 80s (competition got crewcabs in 2000, ranger didnt)
Seats since 2004

even though you feel like youre buying a "new" ranger, regardless of year, it's still a prehistoric, simple truck, therefore prices are going to be very high in those circumstances, but it doesnt mean that all this lack of updating is a losing combination, I still love mine

There is a ton of them, and they are built on a budget, using old technology. But they are still a great truck!
