If you have been considering a truck to make work more productive and play more fun, they're a lot to choose from. However, the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma are among the most popular, especially in the Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster areas. How do you know which one is the perfect pickup for you?

Fred Beans Ford of Doylestown is here to help with our 2019 Ford Ranger vs Toyota Tacoma comparison. Below, you will see these two trucks side-by-side, perfect for making an educated decision on which one will best suit you. Let's jump right in.

Ranger vs Tacoma: Performance & Towing

When it comes to power and strength under the hood, these pickups are both capable. However, one might leave you wanting a little oomph on the road.

With a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Tacoma generates up to 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. You can also upgrade to the available 3.5L V6 option, which ups the torque to an impressive 265 lb-ft. Both of these powertrains are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission which assists with the Tacoma 6,800-pound towing rate when properly equipped.

On the other hand, the Ford Ranger comes with a robust 2.3L EcoBoost® engine. This gives you a whopping 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, which allows this truck to tow up to 7,500 pounds with ease. Plus, this engine is melded to a 10-speed automatic transmission which comes with a tow/haul mode, making towing even easier.

2019 Ranger vs 2019 Tacoma: Fuel Economy

You expect a truck with as much power as the Ranger to limit efficiency. However, this model keeps your trips smooth with fewer trips to the gas station. With an estimated fuel economy of 21 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway, you'll be ready for what the open road throws your way.

Even though the Toyota Tacoma offers not as much of horsepower and torque under the hood, its fuel economy comes in quite less than the Ford model, as well. You will receive an estimated 18 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway, which might have you filling up the tank more often.

Ford Ranger vs Tacoma: Interior Space

Get ready to get cozy in your pickup, as both of these models offer ample space for you and your passengers.

The 2019 Ranger comes equipped with a front headroom of 39.8 inches and a legroom of 43.1 inches. In the back, rear-seat passengers can also stretch out with 34.5 inches of legroom, keeping everyone in the cabin happy. 

The Tacoma offers similar dimensions, though, in some areas you might feel a little more cramped. The front headroom and legroom measure in at 39.7 inches and 42.9 inches, while the back legroom is only 32.6 inches, all smaller than that of the Ranger.
