How Much Horsepower Does a 2002 Ford Ranger 4.0 Have?


America loves trucks, but those trucks don't have to be big to draw a following. While the trend today might be toward "bigger is better," the overall arc of history shows that there are plenty who prefer a rear-drive, compact pickup built for two and capable of serving as a daily driver in city and country alike. Of course, plenty of power never hurts, and that's something that the 2002 Ranger's big V-6 engine offered aplenty.


  • The Ranger came with several engines to fill the spectrum from fuel economy to outright power. The 135-horse "Pinto" four-cylinder served base-engine duty in the XL and XLT, and the upgrade 3.0-liter came in both 145- and 154-horsepower forms. The Ranger Edge got the more powerful 3.0-liter in base trim; the optional 4.0-liter produced 207 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 238 foot-pounds of torque at 3,900 rpm. But this wasn't the most powerful of the line. No, that honor went to the 4.0-liter used in XLT models: The larger and heavier XLT got 222 horsepower and the same 238 foot-pounds at the same peak rpm points.
