We compare the new Raptor Ranger that is coming to the United States (hopefully for the 2020 model year!!) to its competitors; the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and the Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO.

All three of these trucks are incredibly impressive trucks aimed at the compact truck market and offer some awesome specs and tech. Does that make them worth their $40,000+ price tags? That's for you to decide! We're just here to talk about about what these trucks offer to the off-road enthusiast and help convey everything we know about the Ford Ranger Raptor.

Even though the Raptor Ranger has already been released in the Asia-Pacific automotive market, we know there will be some key changes to the powertrain before Ford brings the truck over to our U.S. coasts.

Stay tuned to learn more about the Ranger Raptor, the Colorado ZR2, and the Tacoma TRD Pro.

      The Sundae Drive. Put together implies you show a lack of substantial knowledge. Perhaps there is a need to post videos with no substance, except to post them.

      Speak for yourself, a diesel option for towing and overlanding with better MPG and durability is what the states needs. They're trucks not cars.

      The TRD aint worth its cost and the suspension will beat the crap outta you. To me, the Ranger is beastly but it looks way to much like the ZR2. So, I'll stick with seeing myself in that sexy beast ZR2 and I'll throw a chip, 2" suspension lift, and 35" wheels on it and swag out.

      These new trucks are badass! But I Love my 2005 v8 4runner! It's got awesome power, and with a 3 inch lift and 33 inch tires it makes for an awesome rig. 270hp and 330lbs of torque is plenty power.

      We'll see. So far Toyota has not even tried to update the tech or seriously update the suspension in their trucks to compete with the newer Ford's and Chevrolet's. They are running on proven but old platforms that is sorely in need of a refresh

      When did GM stop producing compact trucks. Did the S-10 stop being produced before 2004 when the Gen 1 Colorado begin production?

      Haha maybe. Although if I was buying I would get a ZR2. We tried to be as fair as possible, simply going off of the known information at the time. The one area we made a big guess was the motor tho.
