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.

      You know, am I missing something here? When thinking about a truck (or any vehicle), I want to know truck things (I.e..durability and whats under the skin). What kind of drive shaft set up does it have? Slip yoke or no slip yoke or CVJ, Axles...how do they compare, engine specs and build stuffs 3/5/6 bearing, forged rods, forged vs cast crank, serviceability. Whats the T-case (chain vs gear) like and what is the gearing. do you need a bunch of specialized parts to work on the truck? How are the brakes and the setup for towing? Can I add aftermarket stuffs without blowing the elictrical. Is the electrical system robust?



      I hate the fact that nobody really goes into the nuts and bolts when doing these comparisons. It is lipstick on a pig! I mean if you were to do an under the skin comparison on the 2002 4Runner vs 2002 Pathfinder - you would start to understand why the 4runner last.....just saying we need to hear more than what the dash is like.....get under the skin and give us a review.

      The recent sales figures for the Ranger are dismal to say the least.

      Hands down the ranger is nice MPG nice. Who doesn’t like turbo? I want something that’s gonna last for years if not decades. I don’t wanna have to have a car payment again if possible. A lot of you seem to agree Toyota is the way to go? I should have bought a ford ranger back in 2007 instead of a fusion though. Ugh. Tacoma seems like it would be like the older rangers use to be.

      Toyota Adventure please, not the base model Rav4 Raiti.  I'm in the Market to pick up an AWD mid-size crossover.    At first I was thinking of the Crosstrek, after much research.......I won't be getting the Crosstrek.  Go Toyota!  Take care bro!

      As Bruce Will says "Not a good idea..." for this video. Too subjective and way too drawn out! Darn, we're all analysts and critics on the tube. Still, I've come to appreciate nearly all of your videos. Can't hit a home-run every time.

      Won’t buy a truck with turbos period. Way to much electronics for a real truck. If you use this truck working or off road it will cost you a fortune fixing it. Owned fords all my life but they won’t build a real truck anymore it’s all foo foo electronic junk.

      While I do believe that toyotas are very reliable, they ride like crap in my opinion. They look good but they need a new frame game. I bought one a few years back and ended up trading it in after 5 k miles.

      Sounds like a Ford Commerial. I have both Ford and Toyota trucks. Like them both, but not a true comparison. Take the Tacoma off road, it kills the Ford. Idiot is comparing a leather package against cloth seats. Compare apples to apples and what the Taco is made for. Take it off road.

      I recently rented a F150/XLT 4x4. (Didn't know Enterprise even rented trucks much less 4x4) I did not like the GM built 10 speed trans at all. Computer kept changing the trans @ low speeds searching for the best gear. Thanks to the idiot EPA government screw ups having their fingers in a pie they know nothing about!

      This is not a helpful comparison. He should have compared a TRD Pro against the FX4 Lariat, both 2019 models.
