- Verdict Ford Ranger vs Toyota Tacoma
Tacoma: Like most trucks, the Tacoma is also available in two cab sizes. The Access Cab offers 34.9 inches (886 mm) of rear headroom compared to 38.3 inches (973 mm) in the Double Cab. But the difference in legroom between the two body styles is even greater. Where the access cab is limited to just 24.6 inches (625 mm) of rear legroom, the double cab offers a relatively cavernous 32.6 inches (973 mm) of legroom.
Tacoma: Unfortunately, the cargo capacity for the rear beds is not available but the mid-size Toyota is good for pulling up to 6,400 lb when equipped with the V6 engine. If equipped with the four-pot, 3,500 lb is the towing limit. Ranger: The Ranger offers a maximum cargo capacity of 43.3 cu-ft in the five-foot and 51.8 cu-ft in the six-foot bed. Also, it can tow up to 7,500 lb with ease. Bottom Line: While the Tacoma has a respectable towing capacity, the Ranger offers 900 lb more hauling capability and is hence the winner here.
Tacoma:Dual-zone climate control is only available with the top TRD Pro and Limited trims. SR and SR5 trims get manual air conditioning only but you can have climate control on TRD Sport and off-road trims as part of an add-on package. Only the SR trim gets the smaller 7.0-inch infotainment system while all other trims get the larger 8.0-inch system. Premium JBL sound system and in-built navigation are only available on the Limited and TRD Pro trims(with AT gearbox). You can opt for them as optional extras but the navigation doesn’t add much in terms of value, you are better off using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. All trims get a 4.2-inch central MID screen in the instrument cluster. All off-road trims get an additional inclinometer that displays the roll and pitch of the vehicle.
Tacoma: Two engines power the Tacoma lineup and come with the option of two gearboxes. A 2.7-liter four-cylinder powers the base Tacoma and makes 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of peak torque and is only available with the six-speed automatic gearbox. The other engine is a 3.5 V6; making 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of peak torque. It is available with a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic, and with both 2WD and 4WD. The six-speed manual though is only available with the TRD Pro and Off-road trims only. Ranger: Unlike the Tacoma. the Ranger only comes with a solitary powertrain. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost makes 290 hp and 310 lb-ft of peak torque. It comes with a 10-speed gearbox only, however, both RWD and 4WD are available. Bottom Line: While the Ford offers a more powerful motor, it is the only one and there is no manual gearbox either. By contrast, the Toyota offers more engine options and the option for a six-speed manual as well.
Tacoma: The four-cylinder with 2WD returns 20 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg overall. Opting for the 4×4 models reduces the efficiency by 1 mpg for each category. As for the V6, the 2WD versions manage 19 mpg in the city 24 on the highway for overall fuel efficiency of 21 mpg. The 4×4 V6 versions return 1 mpg less in the city and overall while the highway figure drops by 2 mpg. The manual, only available with the TRD trims promises 17 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway, and 18 mpg overall. Ranger: According to the EPA, the 2WD Ranger returns 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg out on the highway. The 4WD versions on the other hand claim 20 mpg in the city 24 on the highway. The overall figures stand at 23 and 22 mpg, respectively. Bottom Line: Toyota uses its older powertrains while the Ford comes with a much more modern motor and it shows. The Ranger turns out to be more efficient in every driving condition and is hence the winner here.
Tacoma:Toyota offers pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, and lane departure alert as standard across the Tacoma range. Features like rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are only available on the top two trims as standard but can be opted for in the lower trims. Ranger:The Ranger comes with auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection and forward collision warning as standard along with Dynamic Brake Support. Features like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are available XLT onwards. The Adaptive cruise control is only available on the Lariat trim. Bottom Line: While the Ford offers better convenience features, the Toyota offers radar cruise control as standard which gives the Japanese pickup a considerable advantage over the Ranger.
Tacoma: Pricing for the Tacoma is a little complicated. It starts from $27,345 including destination for the base SR trim that comes with the 2.7-liter four-pot as standard. The 4WD upgrade costs $3,075. Upgrading to the V6 adds $2,260 to the overall price while the upgrade to the 4WD Costs $5,725 extra. The four-cylinder motor is also standard on the SR5 which starts from $29,135.
Beating the Toyota Tacoma at its own game is a mammoth task. The Japanese mid-sizer offers something for everyone, including off-road enthusiasts. But the Ford it seems, came prepared for this face-off. Despite the solitary powertrain, the Ranger offers a host of combinations to fit most mid-size pickup customers’ needs. It also offers better in-cabin equipment and equally capable off-roading equipment as well along with a more spacious cabin and is also slightly more affordable. So unless you must have the standard radar cruise control and the bulletproof reliability, the Ford Ranger would be the ideal mid-size truck. Become an AutoGuide insider.
