Getting a truck is important, getting the right truck is even more important. There are a lot of small truck options out there, and it is easy to be enticed by what is new. The Ranger is a new truck with an old name, but Ford abandoned the small truck market years ago, and now they are coming back to a market that has evolved. At the forefront of that evolution is the Tacoma. See what we mean as we compare the 2020 Toyota Tacoma vs 2020 Ford Ranger. If you already know that the Tacoma is the right truck for you and you are shopping in the Pittsburgh area including Beaver Falls or Cranberry Township, then check out our new Toyota Tacoma inventory at Baierl Toyota in Mars, PA with the link below.
A truck derives its power from what it offers under the hood, and when you turn to the Ranger you get one option. That’s a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine. A 4-cylinder is fine if you don’t have heavy-duty needs, and that’s why the Tacoma also offers a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine. However, the Tacoma is also available with a 3.5-liter V6 that can output up to 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque.
When it comes to features, the Tacoma still wins out. Lately, radar cruise control has been a standout feature which is why Toyota extends it as a standard feature on most of its lineup including the 2020 Tacoma. Not only does this feature not come standard on the Ranger, but it also doesn’t come standard on any trim level and you have to buy it as an available option on one of its top two trims.
The Tacoma comes standard with a Toyota Safety Sense™ too which not only includes a lane departure warning system, but also automatic high beams and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. All features that you have to pay extra for on the Ford Ranger.
