2010 Ford Ranger Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2010 Ford Ranger was new.


Interior: 6.5

Reviewers aren't impressed with the Ford Ranger's interior, calling it basic, out-of-date and barebones. While some reviewers concede that the interior may pass muster for people who only intend on using the Ranger for work, they also note that several nicer interiors are available in the class, including the Toyota Tacoma.

  • "The Ranger's interior was last overhauled during the Clinton administration -- and the first term at that. At least the Ranger's ergonomics are quite straightforward, with easy-to-use controls." -- Edmunds
  • "The Ranger interior is bare-bones basic, with few frills." -- PickupTrucks.com-
  • "Though dated overall, Ranger and B-Series share a convenient dashboard design with easy access to audio and climate controls." -- Consumer Guide


The Ranger's regular cab offers seating for up to three on a front bench (or seating for two in optional front bucket seats), while extebded cabs can seat up to five with a pair of flip-up jump seats in back.  Several reviewers note roominess and comfort still leave something to be desired.   

  • "Good headroom and legroom up front, but three adults are a tight squeeze. The regular cab has enough seat travel and seatback recline for acceptably comfortable positioning." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Front-seat comfort is acceptable unless you're of tall stature. SuperCabs can be equipped with an extra pair of access doors and small, inward-facing rear jump seats. As you'd expect, these seats are suitable only for children on short trips (or for people you don't like)." -- Edmunds
  • "The Ranger has gotten a bit roomier than in generations past, with front seats that have deeply sculpted backs and new fabric choices. Legroom is not as generous as in some competitors." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

The Ranger's several trim levels offer varying degrees of comfort and convenience. Reviewers say the base XL model may be too sparse for most buyers, and features a front vinyl 60/40 bench seat (cloth sport bucket seats are optional) and an AM/FM stereo receiver/clock, among other features. Notable features that are not standard, but can be added on as options, include air conditioning, a CD player and cruise control. Reviewers recommend trading up to the XLT for a better-equipped model.

  • "Though dated overall, Ranger and B-Series share a convenient dashboard design with easy access to audio and climate controls." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The Ranger interior is bare-bones basic, with few frills. Leather seating is available whether you get the 60/40-split bench seat or the bucket seats, and there's an available Pioneer sound system with seven speakers (SuperCab only)." -- PickupTrucks.com


Most of the Ranger's cargo space is in its truck bed, but a few reviewers mention interior storage space.

  • "[Regular cab models] have useful space behind the bench or bucket seats." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Between the seats are two cup holders, a coin tray and fold-up armrest that covers a big storage box. That helps make up for an extremely tiny glove box." -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • "SuperCab models do provide plenty of space behind the seats for luggage or groceries" -- Kelley Blue Book
