The Ford Ranger Versus The Competition

The 2019 Ford Ranger stands poised to usurp the domestic mid-sized pickup truck segment with its innovative features, powerful yet efficient engine, and variety of convenience features and technological systems. Drivers may find themselves comparing the 2019 Ford Ranger to comparable mid-sized trucks from manufacturers like Chevy, Toyota and Nissan. However, despite formidable attempts to render the Ford Ranger secondary, the 2019 Ford Ranger confidently surges ahead of the competition with its innovative features and steadfast performance.

The Ford Ranger vs. The Chevrolet Colorado

While the Chevrolet Colorado offers drivers a diesel powertrain option, it only provides power specifications comparable to those found standard on the 2019 Ford Ranger when upgraded with higher displacement engines. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost® prominently featured in the 2019 Ford Ranger exerts 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet, while the lean 2.5-liter engine found on the Chevrolet Colorado produces a mere 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet. While the Chevrolet Colorado requires upgrades to compete, the 2019 Ford Ranger comes equipped stock with formidable equipment.

The Ford Ranger vs. The Toyota Tacoma

While the Toyota Tacoma offers competitive prices, an off-road optimized trim level and variety of safety systems, like the Chevrolet Colorado, it fails to provide comparable performance specifications without opting for more expensive equipment or higher trim levels. Found standard with a 2.7-liter engine producing only 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet, the Toyota Tacoma hardly offers significant competition against the Ford Ranger. Additionally, the Toyota Tacoma's limited interior technology fails to match the variety of advanced features found within the FordPass Connect suite.

The Ford Ranger vs. The Nissan Frontier

While undercutting the price of the Ford Ranger, the Nissan Frontier offers significantly less in technology, performance, convenience and capability. With a mere 152 horsepower produced by its four-cylinder engine, and an upgraded 261 horsepower exerted from its available V6 engine, neither the standard or upgraded powertrains of the Nissan Frontier manage to match the performance found standard within the 2019 Ford Ranger. Additionally, the advanced technology, safety systems, traction management controls and ergonomic styling prominently featured within the 2019 Ford Ranger all surpass the simplistic, straightforward design of the Nissan Frontier.
