Exterior Features and Trim Levels

Looking for a simplified truck-shopping experience? The Ford Ranger lineup offers three well-equipped trim levels to choose from including the XL, XLT, and Lariat, and it comes in two versatile cab and bed configurations. Many features on upper-level trims are available as options on lower-level trims, so it's easy to pick out a Ranger model that satisfies your everyday needs.

Pinning down the right Tacoma can be trickier as it offers twice as many trim levels and less feature availability across them.

Interior Features

Step inside the Ford Ranger, and you'll find that it's much easier to find a comfortable driving position than in the Tacoma. The Ranger offers a more spacious back seat than the Tacoma, giving passengers more room to move around and get comfortable. The Ranger also has higher-mounted seats and more ways to adjust your seating position and steering, making it simpler for you to set up your daily drive just the way you like it.

You'll also find higher-quality materials and a more driver-friendly, crossover-like layout in the Ranger. So, if you're looking for a vehicle that offers the extra muscle you need without sacrificing ease of use and everyday drivability, the Ranger is an excellent pick.

Technology and Safety

If you're searching for the latest infotainment tech, the Ranger is sure to appeal to you. The Ranger offers a wide array of modern technology features such as standard forward collision warning, an available Wi-Fi hotspot, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also get a larger 8-inch touchscreen display in the Ranger while the Tacoma caps out at a 7-inch touchscreen.

Overall, the Tacoma is a bit lacking on the technology front. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not even available as options, and the Entune infotainment system is unnecessarily complicated. So, if you want seamless smartphone integration and easy access to your favorite apps and features on the go, the Ranger has you covered.


If superior towing and hauling power are high on your list of priorities, you'll want the Ranger on your team. When properly equipped, the Ranger can tow up to 7,500 pounds and carry a payload of up to 1,860 pounds.

The Tacoma falls short, offering a max towing capacity of 6,800 pounds and a max payload capacity of 1,620 pounds. So, if you're eager to take your big toys along for the ride, the Ranger is better-equipped to handle your heavy lifting.
