In the recent history of automobiles, the Ford Ranger V6 engine is counted among the most reliable and surprisingly powerful powertrains. Two notable iterations of this engine have been used in the 1990s and 2000s. Beginning in 1990, the 4.0-liter V6 was the premier engine for the quarter-ton pickup. Nicknamed the Cologne for the German city in which it was produced, it is placed exclusively in Ford vehicles. It produces 155 horsepower, but when paired with the five-speed manual transmission, it is surprisingly punchy. More important than its performance, however, is the incredible durability. These engines typically run for more than 200,000 miles. In 2001, the Cologne was replaced with an even more powerful 4.0-liter V6. This improved version of the engine features a longer bore, producing a significantly greater 207 horsepower.
