Thank you everyone and have a great day! This is the central hub for truck discussion. Done, you can now forward this to them. If you HAD to pick between one of those two trucks, go with the Ranger. Maybe his truck is just a POS but like I said, it was just not great. The Ford looks pretty similar across its three available trim levels. How many miles on it with that set up. Need to test drive all three, but this video pushed the colorado up on my list. I usually always say buy American, specifically Chevy. Up front, the Toyota has a blunt, heritage-inspired nose with rectangular headlights, and it comes with a hood scoop on its TRD Sport and TRD Pro trim levels. Came here to say this. The Ranger is new to the North American market for 2019, but it isn’t "all-new." These are some of my thoughts on why the taco was a better fit for me. Under the skin, however, the Ranger gets a new fully boxed frame, a turbocharged engine specially selected for this market, the Ford F-150’s 10-speed automatic and other mechanical enhancements. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. But before i saw the ranger , i was in love with the Tacoma. In my opinion it also looks better than the Ranger... you know for the ladies.

The Tacoma has a more rugged exterior design than the Ranger. Also does articulation get affected with a set up like that? I am looking at a truck with mileage around 100,000 - is this a good idea? I had one, Liked it, but would never go back. They’re both good trucks. My dog is 100% Velcro and likes to sleep with me, so a rack tent would have sucked. The Tacoma has a lot more aftermarket parts and probably always will and the Tacoma community is very tight. Hello everyone , long time lurker here and I am finally in a position to buy an overland vehicle. Won't both trucks go to 250,000+ miles with a little love? But after seeing the Ford ranger in videos at SEMA 2019. Why I went with a Taco instead of a ranger: FX4 is comparably priced to the trd OR to within a couple k.

And my going out attire is a t-shirt and realtree baseball cap so I totally am a truck person already. Prepare to be raped by any ranger owner reading this, A ranger may make it to 250k but the taco will outlive you. So down to the meat of it. I really like it so far but it was not cheap. Trucks. They cost more, but last longer (way longer than a ranger), and hold their value really well.

The 2013 F-150 SuperCrew is one of the most affordable full-size pickups that strikes the perfect balance of affordability and modern car features. Bad ass rig. Obviously the toyota will hold it's value and is more reliable but you could drive the ranger into the ground, buy another and drive it into the ground and it would cost the same. I've been doing a lot of research and shorten the list down to 2 trucks. However after I purchased my 2004 tacoma the differences are pretty striking. What gives? The Tacoma just feels more solidly built, and less cheap. I don't have anything to say about the Ranger, but you can't go wrong with the new Tacoma.
