Since the 2019 Ford F-150 is larger than the 2019 Ranger does it make it a better truck for you? Check out these two Ford XLT trim level trucks to see how they differ from under the hood, to throughout the exterior and interior. Then you decide which truck you need to park in your driveway!

      The base model F150 has a regular v6 engine as a base option. It’s supposedly a good engine but it’s too small for the larger, more specd F150 at the higher trim levels. Why didn’t they drop that into the Ranger? It seems perfect for that.

      Okay I guess I'm going to cap on it a little bit... I like the truck overall but I don't like the fact that it only comes in a 4-cylinder what happened to the 4.0 liter V6 or the 3.0 liter V6... That's first and foremost second why is it only an automatic what happened to the stick why are most cars and trucks automatic these days and I don't want to hear they're more fuel efficient because they're not let me ask you this have any of you ever driven on snow and ice??? And if so have any of you ever driven a stick on snow and ice??? Because I have and I'm telling you from my own personal experience driving a stick on snow and ice handles and feels much better than driving an automatic Plus if your starter goes out or if your alternator goes out you can still kick start a stick when can you kick start an automatic??? Because as far as I know there is no automatic ever built that you can kick-start and if you tried to kick-start it you would have it so screwed up that you have to have it rebuilt the car manufacturers these days don't care about the average person that likes to drive a stick obviously they're trying to force us to drive automatics I'm telling you all I don't like automatics I would rather have a stick as opposed to an automatic anytime anywhere any day and in any weather situation and trust me I've driven in all kinds of weather situations and you tell me how a little 4 cylinder is going to power a four-wheel drive especially with an automatic transmission yes my last truck was an automatic and trust me it took me two months to get use to it because I am so use to driving a stick but my last truck which happened to be a Ford Ranger had also a 3.0 liter in it and a 5-speed automatic it was originally a 4-speed until I had my transmission rebuilt when I had my transmission rebuilt they put a locking torque converter in it that locking torque converter was what made it a 5-speed instead of a 4-speed now I'm going to tell you this if you're getting 26 miles per gallon on the freeway you're getting one miles to the gallon more then what I got with my 5-speed automatic and you're talking a 4-cylinder so where is the savings??? Because technically I was getting better gas mileage with mine with a V6 as compared to what you're getting with a little 4 cylinder I'll give you credit where credit's due it's a nice looking truck and I like the fact that it's got four full doors instead of the suicide doors in the back but you've taken the stick and made it an automatic why do you have to mess with a good thing you've also taking the 4.0 and the 3.0 and put a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder in it again I ask you why are you messing with a good thing no I'm not really that impressed overall is a nice looking truck but I'm not impressed with what you've done with it and I'm more than sure I'm not the only one that feels that way

      I test drove a new Ranger, couldn't stop noticing how much it resembles my UTV. Too small for actual truck stuff.

      Thank you Joe- all of your vehicle reviews are well structured and thorough. This one really helps as I am considering a Ranger versus F150 and checking out other brands as well.  Thank you and keep up the good work!

      For me the biggest benefit of the f150 vs Ranger is the aluminum body.. NO MORE RUST.. LoL.

      Too much emphasis on appearance of the vehicles. Would like to see less on colors, chrome, exterior lines, etc. and more on technical features, engineering, drivetrain details, mpg, and performance.

      If you are looking at leasing, some how i see ranger is more expensive than F-150. This is real headache, you end up taking F-150 coz you dont feel like paying more for ranger, when F-150 is cheaper

      @Raiti's Rides also wanted to comment, there is not much difference in the design of the vehicles since first sold. the ride on dirt roads is the same as my old truck. the only real benefit that new cars have over old is the materials tires are made from. had 1970 mach one and newer design tires made huge difference in how vehicle rode and handled. the same with my race cars.

      Sorry mate .... the ranger is not the new kid on the block ....
      The ranger is a kick ass in Australia !
      Some of the trim levels and mod kits would blow your mind .....spent 5 years in Australia always wondered why it wasn’t sold in the states....because it would affect f150 sales!

      I have only seen one ford ranger out on the road ??? It is almost end of July 2019. My local ford dealer discounts the base F-150 at about $21000 out the door so other than size why would anyone buy a ranger ? I know not everyone wants a full size truck but the ranger pricing just doesn’t make sense?

      Great video!! Was spending weekends and weekends on deciding between the two. Here in Canada, the prices from the Ranger Lariat to the F-150 Lariat with the Ford Employee Pricing is a couple hundred different. Despite the big size (university student looking for "smaller" vehicles) and garage space problems, F-150 stole my heart. Thanks!!! Helped me out a lot!!

      I'm a 5.0 V8 fan but I like that engine set-up on the ranger it looks like the older 4cil ones but newer, but I do hate the f150 with a small motor I'll go 5.0 V8 on the f150 every time specialy with a super charger on it

      Thanks for the great video. I just recently made a purchase and at the dealership it was between these two. I went with the F150 XLT. I would say the Ranger is the most comfortable in its class. As soon as I drove the F150 though it was such a comfortable ride! It’s my first full size and I’m very happy with my choice. Thanks again for all the info which helped me out before going to actually see them.

      I had been doing a ton of research on what truck I wanted and was so excited watching videos on the ranger. I took it for a test run and absolutely loved it.. asked to test drive an F150 of the same trim.. that was a mistake.. the Ranger felt cheap and thrown together in comparison.. I'm torn and totally lost now.. I'll have to check out the maxed out Ranger Lariat..

      I'm just hoping they keep as much as possible from this 2019 version in the next model I don't care for the gear knob switch or the tablet screen look thrown on dash board like the 2020 cars/SUV or what other dealership do to they're cars trucks and if they do do that sorry not interested hope u relay that to the ford plant, all the new tech means higher insurance, lack of driver common sense and more G$$ for regular damage, I'd prefer gear handle switch, screen built into dashboard and speed, gas ect not digitalized

      I don't mind the v4 2.3 engine saves fuel but lowers the towing capacity but will there be a V6 version and possibly a bit more space in the back with possibly a 5.5 box in the next version which I guess will be 2022 since truck change every 3 years just hope they don't change much
