Toyota Tacoma vs Ford Ranger


Have you been wondering what you’ll gain with either the 2020 Toyota Tacoma or the 2020 Ford Ranger? They both give you confidence to drive through inclement weather in the winter and let you take your truck anywhere with their ability to ride over any terrain. You can even load up their beds for that upcoming camping trip or tow your boat down to the bay.

These models also understand that there’s much more to driving a truck than towing and hauling gear in the bed. They both have premium cabin features that offer you a comfortable ride during your daily commute around Lowell, Dracut, and Tewksbury.

With all these trucks can do, how do you decide which one’s right for you? Here at Ira Toyota of Tewksbury, we’ve made this Toyota Tacoma vs. Ford Ranger comparison to help you decide.

Toyota Tacoma Safety

Safety Technology

With either truck, there are a handful of driver-assistive features that help make your ride as safe as possible. With the Tacoma, there’s Toyota Safety Sense™ P that gives you systems like Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

These technologies help you stay centered in your lane and a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you while also keeping visibility at its best when driving at night. The Ford Ranger also offers similar safety features with Co-Pilot360™. The main difference is that these features are standard in the 2020 Tacoma, while they aren’t standard with the 2020 Ranger.

Personalized Connection

Also standard in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is its advanced infotainment system. Along with giving you the commercial-free music stations of SiriusXM®, you can also connect your device to play audio through this system. You can do this wirelessly through Bluetooth® technology or plug in your smartphone and use additional applications by connecting through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.

This will essentially give you the ability to display your phone’s interface right on the touch-screen display in the Tacoma. Along with being able to safely make calls and send messages, connecting this way also gives you the ability to display your route through your maps app.

The 2020 Ford Ranger also gives you the ability to stream audio through Bluetooth®, but that’s basically the extent of its standard multimedia options. To have the more personalized and convenient connection afforded in the Tacoma, an upgrade to the infotainment system will be needed in the Ranger since it’s only offered on higher trim levels.
