Comparison Review

Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Ford Maverick than the Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Ford Maverick, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Maverick is a better financial choice over the Ford Ranger, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Maverick is much higher than that of the Ford Ranger.

Since the Ford Maverick is much slimmer than the Ford Ranger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Maverick, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Ranger.

The Ford Maverick has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Ranger, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Ranger is clearly the choice over the Ford Maverick for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Maverick is clearly outclassed by the Ford Ranger.

The Ford Maverick offers much less torque than the Ford Ranger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford Maverick as you will the Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Ford Maverick.

The Ford Maverick comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Ranger.
