Compare the 2019 Toyota Tacoma and 2019 Ford Ranger

Both the Tacoma and Ranger offer an available four-wheel drive system for excellent traction when driving over challenging terrains. However, with a higher ground clearance (9.4” vs 8.9”), the Tacoma is more suitable for off-road use. For even greater off-road prowess, the Tacoma offers a TRD Off-Road model, with Crawl Control, an electronically locking rear differential, an off-road tuned suspension with Bilstein shocks, Active Traction Control, Hill Start Assist Control, and a Multi-Terrain Select system.

Maintenance is a major cost for vehicle ownership — and the Tacoma helps alleviate this with its 2-years/25,000-miles complimentary scheduled maintenance plan. The Ranger doesn’t offer a complimentary scheduled maintenance plan.
