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!

      Nice comparison! I like how the new Ranger has room and can pick up speed, was surprised when you hit the gas, nice! Will be needing to tow (food truck small )and it will be perfect. Did 10yrs on the road jobs all over Texas in an F-150 and never any problems. If a deal would come close to the Ranger then I’d get the F-150. Great review, answered some questions I had.

      I like them both just not the chrome wheels, they're tacky & the F150 looks a bit too low. Maybe half an inch or an inch higher would have made the F150 look better. $47k for a bare bones F150 and $35k for a bare bones Ranger, he'll no!!!. These cars are way too expensive nowadays.

      Did the same ( drove the 2019 Ranger 4x4 Fx and 2018 F-150 4x4 Fx back to back )
      The Ranger was almost like a sports car - very quick.( My trade in a mustang )
      The F-150 drove so much better than any full size truck been in before.
      The Ranger had enough head room but was tight in the shoulders for me ( I'm 6'5" 200 but have long arms and shoulders of a 6'8" person )
      Price - with the close out deal Ford was doing for 2018 F-150 $11,688 plus extra rebates put the F-150 at a lower price than Ranger - went with the F-150 over Ranger and Tacoma TRD Off Road.

    • Gregory Faulkner
      Gregory Faulkner

      Overall, very thorough and useful review, so please take the following corrections and logic disagreement as constructive criticism. There are a few important errors and logic omissions regarding size considerations that I feel impelled to bring out F150 versus Ranger. It's not as simple as is laid out in this video if one is considering maneuverability, garage space and/or city parking in the two trucks for comparison. The real comparison here is between the two Super Crew configurations of each truck, but the specs differences published in the video do not take these equal configurations in to account.

      Curb Weight: The most erroneous and egregious stat given in this video has to do with curb weight and curb weight difference of the two trucks. Uploader should be much more careful giving out these stats, because the 4100 pounds given as the Ranger curb weight several times in this video is only fairly accurate if you're looking at the most basic XL with a 6' bed with no options. In other words, "about 4100 pounds" is only relevant with respect to an absolute base, stripped truck, which is by the way, my favorite truck, but is not the truck he used for comparison basis. That base, XL Super Cab Ranger, according to the Ford spec sheet, comes in starting at 4145 and can go lower than that only if you choose a cab chassis (aka no body on the frame sold only to fleet customers). This means that the 4145 lb truck has 16" wheels, a small extra cab, a 6' bed, and far fewer electronics than the truck he chose for the review. Power windows and doors and rear camera, but no cruise control or any other popular convenience and comfort features. Now if you're simply comparing the lightest F150 you can get with a bed to the lightest Ranger you can get with the bed, then actually a RCSB F150 XL is lighter than any Ranger. It starts at 4069 with the 3.3L V6 mated to the six speed. If you take it a step further and compare the Ranger with a 6' bed, which comes standard with a turbo charged engine mated to a ten speed, to the lightest F150 with a turbo and ten speed which is a single cab with a 6'7" bed; then the Ranger is only slightly lighter (4145 versus 4166); and part of the reason that the much wider and taller F150 is about the same weight as a Ranger is due to the fact that an F150 can be had in an all aluminum bodied RCSB that has a shorter wheel base and is actually slightly shorter than any Ranger sold in North America.

      But even though the reviewer gave us the base curb weight or Ranger and the approximate actual weight of the Super Crew F150 tested, he is not reviewing base trucks in each of their smallest configurations; he's reviewing fairly well-appointed, crew cab, 2WD XLTs with turbo charged, ten speed power trains to one another, but they are not appointed exactly the same. For instance, the F150 has the tow package, and the Ranger does not, which adds weight, price, and changes fuel economy estimates for the F150. Ford does not list out the curb weight of each configuration at each trim level; only each configuration at it's lowest available trim level. So what I'd suggest in such a situation is to give us two things: Firstly, let us know the curb weight of each base Super Crew 2WD as listed at the Ford website while also reminding people that an F150 is available in a regular cab, whereas a Ranger is not, and therefore, if a light and as small-as-possible truck is important to you, it should be understood that an F150 can be owned that is lighter and shorter than any Ranger or about the same weight when each have a turbo charged engine mated to a ten speed. The starting curb weight for a Ranger Super Crew is 4232 XL base truck; and the starting curb weight for an F150 Super Crew is 4528, and with the 2.7L mated to a ten speed would be around 4625. The second thing that the publisher could do is to take the GVWR on the inside of the door panel of each truck; subtract the payload listed on the inside of the door panel of each truck, and that would give us the approximate curb weight of each truck; and then point out that the F150 has a couple extra options that skew that difference.

      The second issue is price. The variance in price of the two trucks, though substantial is overstated stated in the video, because it seems as though the F150 in the video is slightly more appointed with a tow package, and it's also notable that the 2.7L is not the base engine for XLT in F150. Those two things added together, add a couple thousand more to the MSRP of the F150 versus the Ranger. They both have "Sport" trim. It is also notable, that again, due to the fact that a customer can actually reduce the size of an F150 choice beyond what he or she can reduce the size of a Ranger choice, the latter of which is not available in a regular cab, the price variance between the two trucks, when choosing the most minimum configuration and trim of each truck, can be much closer than what this video shows. MSRP plus destination of F150 is around $29K. Ranger, about $25.2K with rear seat delete. However, Ford has cut off trim levels for RCSB to only XL. So if you want a fancier truck than an XL, then you have to compare equal cab configuration choices. What should have been done here is just to give the viewer the MSRP of Super Crew XLT price of each truck; not try and make it seem that the variance between the two is as high as shown in the video.

      The last issue has to do with fuel economy. The Ranger city estimate was hugely misstated in the video. He said 23 mpg. The Ranger is actually 21 city for all configurations and trims with the 2WD and 20 city for all 4WD configurations and trims. F150 is much more complicated, but it is obvious that the F150 used in the comparison had either the LT tires or the heavy payload addition, because he stated that it had a city rating of 19 on the window sticker. It is notable, however, that if one doesn't need a Super Crew XLT with LT tires or extra payload or extra towing duty, but just wants standard duty, then F150 Super Crew XLT below 6500 GVWR gets an estimate as high as 20 city. The highest possible mpg estimate for each truck are: F150 20/26/22; Ranger 21/26/23. It is worthwhile mentioning that Ranger gets a much more consistent estimate. In other words, all 2WDs get 21/26/23, 4WDs get 20/25/22; whereas F150 has duty levels that affect mpg estimates, but can be chosen with standard duty for 20/26/22 and 19/24/20, 2WD, 4WD, respectively.

      So just to go back to what I keep saying. Following the logic that an F150 is a much larger footprint than Ranger is not as cut and dried as shown in the video, and that's because, as I keep going back to, if you need more bed space, but not extra seats or doors, F150, although about 5.5" wider and a couple inches taller, can be configured in a shorter truck that weighs less than any Ranger, and that configuration which I have at an actual 4190 curb weight with the 2.7L Ecoboost, is easy to maneuver and park and fits beside a car in my small dual carport. Remember, the whole premise of this video was to show the vast difference in size of Ranger vs. F150, but the problem with the assertion is that all Rangers get the same wheel base and exact same length, height varies only slightly, and weight is not all that variable, whereas F150 can be had in many different lengths and weight, but what he showed us was the second longest F150 versus the standard length Ranger.
