Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Tundra than in the Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Toyota Tundra.

Convenience
With the Toyota Tundra you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Ranger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Ford Ranger is a better financial choice over the Toyota Tundra, 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 Ford Ranger carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Tundra.

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

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

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

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

Utility
The Ford Ranger has less seating than the Toyota Tundra, making the Toyota Tundra the better choice if you often have passengers.

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