Ranger vs Ranger

Ok, I'm getting really close to dropping the hammer on a Ranger. I know I want at least a 09 or newer, because I really like the newer body style. That leaves me 3 options, 500,700 or 800. I definatley want the full size model, so a new 500 is out, but what are your opinions on the 3 models as far as power, reliabilty, and features. I would be using it for light farming and huinting mostly, but will also be on the occational trail ride. My only concern with the 500 is power when climbing hills. If I have 3 adults in the thing is going to bog down on me or would it be ok. Any input would help. I was also curious about fuel consumption.

Really any of the 3 should do you just fine. the '11 400 and 500 ranger are on the mid-size chassis, but in '09-'10 the 500 is a full size ranger.

The twins (700 and 800) will have the nicer gauge cluster like the sportsmans, with the analog speedo and digital display at the bottom. The 500 will only have light up buttons and analog hour meter (full size models)

If money is not so much an issue, i would go with the twin (700 or 800). i would get whatever one i can get the better deal on, as there really is not much of a noticable difference between the two. The 500 will do okay with 3 people up a hill, it might surprise you the capabilities it has, but still, nothing beats the torque or smoothness of the twin. they dont get super great gas milage, but fuel range is okay because they hold about 3x the amount of fuel a 500 or 800 sportsman would have with the same motor.
