2019 Ford Ranger vs 2019 Ford F-150

Serving Charlotte, NC

Despite their relatively similar appearances, the Ford Ranger and F-150 are different in almost every way. The Ford F-150 is one of the best full-size pickup truck models in the United States, pairing tremendous reliability with massive power and towing capacity. The Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup truck model that provides adequate energy and towing capacity with maneuverability and fuel economy. Both models excel in almost everything you require from their respective classes, so the question is: What type of truck are you looking for?


The 2019 Ford Ranger comes standard with a 270 horsepower 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine. The 2019 Ford F-150 provides several engine options, the weakest being a 250 horsepower 3.0 liter Powerstroke Turbo Diesel engine and the strongest being a 450 horsepower High-Output 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine. Although the Powerstroke Diesel engine of the F-150 has the lowest output of horsepower between these models, it still provides 440 pounds of torque, making it a perfectly capable engine for a full-size truck model. As is expected when comparing a mid-size truck model and a full-size truck model, the Ford Ranger generally gets the nod in fuel economy although it depends on the trim of the F-150. The Ranger provides drivers with a combined 23 city/highway mpg. The F-150 can get anywhere from 12 combined to 25 combined city/highway mpg depending on which engine you go with.


Both the F-150 and Ranger models feature beautiful exteriors and spacious interiors. However, the full-size F-150 models are generally significantly more significant than the mid-size Ranger models and therefore provides more bed space and cabin room. The Ranger has more interior space that most mid-size truck models, particularly its biggest competitor, the Chevy Colorado. The F-150 interior has a luxurious feel to it but still provides usability catering to the working-class driver.


The Ranger has excellent safety scores and comes standard with life-saving safety technology such as automatic braking, which the F-150 only provides as an add-on. The F-150, however, received a federal five-star safety rating. Infotainment comes standard with the Ranger but doesn’t get featured on the F-150 until you reach its XLT trim level. The Ranger also features adaptive cruise-control regardless of the trim level you choose.

In conclusion, comparing these two models shows these vehicles are like night and day. The Ford F-150 may be pricier, but it’s packed full of performance and remains top tier amongst the full-size truck class. The Ford Ranger may not be as powerful or physically appealing as the F-150, but it’s more affordable and comes standard with many more features.
