Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Toyota Tacoma requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Ford Ranger, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Ranger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Tacoma. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Tacoma have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Ranger is much wider than the Toyota Tacoma, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Ranger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Tacoma.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Ranger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Tacoma.

Handling
The Ford Ranger has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Tacoma, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Ford Ranger, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Toyota Tacoma, due to its slightly better towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Tacoma.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford Ranger as you will the Toyota Tacoma.

Warranty
The Ford Ranger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Tacoma.
