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 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.

      Zr2 gives the raptor a tough time off road. The ranger is going to need a 4K winch if it’s gonna try to hang with the chevy & I’m a ford fan... but own a 2018 ZR2

      Okay here we Go, I would never own a Ford my Dad owned 5 Ford trucks,and had lots of problems with all of them.The only reason he kept buying Fords was because a real good friend of his owned a Ford Dealership and he was giving my Dad great deals,on new trucks.Also had 2 buddies that I worked with that had Ford Diesels and they were pieces of junk.One of them traded his in after only 3 years and bought a Chevy Deisel,the other guy invoked the lemon law,and Ford was forced to give him a new truck.Ive owned 4 Toyota trucks,and the motors on all of them held up great,but I had lots of problems with all of those trucks things that broke or wore out way before they should of.In late 2018 my old 2008 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner V6,was worn out, time to get a new truck.I always loved the looks of the 2nd Gen. Tacomas,but I hated the looks of the 3rd Gen Tacomas. I remember when they first came out I was like (Really that is the Best that Toyota can do, this is the New Tacoma, WOW WHAT A LET DOWN),sorry but I just think that they are fugly looking,and most of the paint colors that Toyota offered on the 3rd Gen. Tacomas were real flat and dull ,and was just not my thing at all.Im a Union Carpenter,and one day on a job site I see a brand new 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2 V6.So I went over and checked out this guys truck,and I just loved the way it looked.In Dec. 2018 I went to a Chevy dealership,and test drove one,I knew immediately I have to get this truck,I went with the 2019 Colorado ZR2 V6, 308 Horsepower, smaller rear cab,longer bed,CatBack Performance Exhaust,and Bose speakers.I love driving this truck, I couldn't be more happy with it,I honestly think that it is the best looking truck on the market now,I get looks in it every where I go.
