Small trucks are the unsung heroes of the modern world. While they don’t sell as many units as larger trucks, they are still an important part of daily life. The balance of utility and efficiency makes smaller trucks like the Toyota Tacoma and the Ford Ranger the right fight for many homeowners, small businesses, and other people.
The 2021 Toyota Tacoma and the 2021 Ford Ranger both face the challenges of the mid-size pickup truck market, but they do so by choosing different specialties to make their names known. The Ford Ranger tries to gather attention as a budget-friendly, safe truck with an exciting, turbocharged engine. On the other side, the Toyota Tacoma carries on a legacy of off-road capability and a burly V6 engine. View the chart below to compare more of the features and specifications of the two trucks.

The Ford Ranger has not only a lower starting MSRP overall, but its best-selling trims are also cheaper than the trims that do well from the Tacoma. You get what you pay for, however, as the Toyota Tacoma presents a full package with lots of technology, safety equipment, capability and more. The Tacoma is built for off-road enthusiasts, with its larger fuel tank, higher ground clearance, and 4WD availability make clear. The Ranger might have its own propensity for the trails, but it won’t match the Tacoma. Come to Western Slope Toyota to see why so many people choose the Tacoma.
