After eight years off the market, the Ford Ranger is back on duty at U.S. dealerships. The Blue Oval’s mid-size pickup has been completely updated for 21st-century owners and brings an impressive array of benefits.
But guess what? If you’re shopping for a smaller truck, there are still some important Ford Ranger competitors to consider. The segment is quickly heating up, and the other automakers are constantly improving their entries as well. The latest models offer advanced infotainment technologies, including mobile Wi-Fi, plus popular driver-assistance measures like forward-collision warnings. These trucks are plenty capable, too, as some can even tow more than 3.5 tons. So before the new Ranger carries away your business, let’s see how it stacks up against the competition.
