2020 Toyota Tacoma vs 2020 Ford Ranger

December 9th, 2019 by

Whether you want to be able to traverse through rough terrain, haul around a lot of supplies, or you just love the feel of owning the road, a pick-up truck is definitely the vehicle that does it all for you. You may be considering what type of truck will best fit your lifestyle. Should you go for a 2020 Toyota Tacoma or a Ford Ranger? These two pick-up trucks are popular in Edmonton, Alberta, but what are the differences, and which one is best for you? Let’s take a look at the features and performance of each.

2020 Toyota Tacoma

With a muscular, massive grille, you’ll make a powerful statement right from the start. The smoked headlights and available LED headlights light the way to your destination while the embossed Tacoma logo on the tailgate leave the others in the dust. A rear power window lets in a stream of cool air when you want with the touch of a button.

You’ll get a lot of performance out of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma with its 3.5-L V6 direct-injection engine that delivers 278 hp paired with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Towing is a breeze with the available Tow Package. This package brings the tow load up to 6,800 lbs, so you won’t have any problems getting your things around.

Discover the thrill of off-roading with several off-road capabilities, such as:

  • Crawl Control, which gives you the ability to crawl over rough, rocky terrain.
  • Electronically locking rear differential, which puts the power evenly to both rear wheels so you can get better grip.
  • Multi-Terrain Select allows you to choose from five different modes, which gives you some control over the wheelspin.

2020 Ford Ranger

Slip into the driver’s seat of a Ford Ranger and hit the road. Don’t let the sleek front grille style fool you. The Ranger is made for powerful trucking activities with a gentler appearance. A 2.3-L EcoBoost engine pairs with a 10-speed transmission delivering 270 hp and a towing capability of 7,500 lbs.

A quality-strength steel body and bumper ensures this truck is heavy-duty enough for all your off-roading situations. You can opt for 18-inch OWL tires and an electronic-locking rear differential.

Choose between two-wheel or four-wheel drive with the turn of a dial and discover the ease of traversing the roads. Or, if you want, select the Off-Road Package for some serious driving.
