The 2019 Ford Ranger is finally here to the midsize truck market in the USA. It has some stiff competition, especially from the Toyota Tacoma. Exam these two trucks from top to bottom and with a drive to see if Ford has brought their "A game" to this truck segment.

      I just test drove a 2020 Toyota Tacoma trd pro and a 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat. In my opinion the Ford Ranger is much better. The driving experience was so much different. The Tacoma’s interior wasn’t very comfortable, the shifting in the transmission is poor, and it lacks power and torque. The Ranger was very comfortable, drove smooth with its 10 speed transmission, and the 310 lbs of torque was very impressive. I know Toyota’s are very liable and hold their value. My last truck was a 2008 Toyota Tacoma Sport, so I know. But I bought the Ranger for the reasons I stated above.

      I have been an owner of a 2017 new Tacoma. Overall I am disapointed. I bought it for the reliability but didn't know how cheap its made until I have owned one for 2 months. absolutely ridicules.
      1. V6 engine sounds comes from the engine is annoying
      2. little to no power, it feels absolutely as weak as a 4 cylinder.
      3. Transmission is not that great.
      4. Why make a crew cab when there is no room in the back?
      5. SR5 Touch screen is totally garbage, Cannot see a damn thing whens its sunny outside from the reflection on the cheap screen.
      6.seating position is weird and not adjustable.
      7. Very weak lighting. CANT SEE AT NIGH WITHOUT HIGH BEAM!!
      I will definition put it up to sale

      I would take the Tacoma over the Ranger every time. It's incredibly reliable, holds tremendous value, and looks sexy as hell. I don't care if it has plastic on the interior. I'm buying a truck not a fucking luxury SUV. I'm gonna use it like a damn truck.

      The ranger is a piece of crap! Ford has always been crappy. My 05 Tacoma is still running with over 300k miles on it. Start everytime at 60 below zero. The ranger won't even last 3 years. As soon as it turn 100k it will be gone to the junk yard.

      Whack review. Very biased towards the ford. You’re reviewing a used base model tacoma vs a brand new top trim ranger. Unfair and you literally spoke down on toyota the entire video. The ford driving part, you spoke on the actual driving. When you drove the tacoma, all you did was speak down the interior which you literally just did when you were reviewing the interior. Barely spoke on how it actually drives. No i don’t own a tacoma so i’m not butthurt, i just feel that you definitely had favoritism being that you reviewed AT a ford dealer.

      This is like “reviewing” and comparing an iPhone 11 pro to an iPhone 6 and yet this man thinks it’s a fair and accurate comparison 😂 to say the interior is the same on a decked out TRD as base is a pretty blatant lie. Beginning to think you know nothing about Tacoma’s to begin with. Lariat FX4 is really nice but it’s not as nice as the TRD Off Road. In fact, I think the TRD Sport is nicer lol.

      The Ranger has a 2012 interior. So it wasn't a fair review. To change the oil on the Ranger you have to take off the front tire. LOL

      Good review, I get the reason the years are different. The dealership happened to have a 2016 in good shape, same as 2019, otherwise it would have been another ranger solo review. However, the dealership should have given you a XLT/ XL to be a fair review, im sure they wanted to show off the lariat since it is a FORD DEALERSHIP! Good opportunity to let it shine. Good job, and to the comments about different years and not fair..common sense isnt very common.

      That wasn’t an apples to apples. A TRD Off Road would have been more comparable. That Ford turbo four will be trailing blue smoke when the Tacoma is getting broke in.

      You're sitting in a Ford Dealership parking lot so would you bash the new Ranger? I doubt it. Do you think someone will compare a 2020 Taco to a 2011 Ranger at the Toyota dealership? No, they don't need to. Resale and reliability tells all . . Period! Wait 2 years and you'll be able to buy the 2019 Lariat for $20K. Try buying a 2 year old Taco for 1/2 the original price.

      As soon as he said 45k for a ford Ranger, I stopped the video. Ford is day dreaming charging this much for a brand new truck. Tacoma is cheaper better looking more reliable and hold its value better, obsoletely no comprison

      Bring both of these trucks back to the lot in 5 years with a trade-in value, that is if the turbo hasn't blown up on the Ranger.
