The Ford F-150 and Ford Ranger: Both are Great but Different

When you are shopping for a truck, you want to get the model that will be best suited for your purposes. You have a lot of trucks out on the market to choose from. There are larger trucks such as the Ford F-150, and you can also choose mid-sized trucks such as the Ford Ranger. While both of these are exceptional trucks with many great features, these trucks have some differences that you will want to consider.

The Ford F-150 is a very popular vehicle. It offers many customization options and ways to make it your own, while the Ford Ranger is more specified and offers less options. The F-150 is built tough, and it can serve as both a commuting truck and a work truck. The Ford Ranger is built tough as well. The main area of difference that you will notice between these two trucks is the capability of the trucks. They differ in their payload and towing capacities.

The Ford F-150 is geared toward the driver who will tow and haul larger loads. The F-150 has a towing capacity of up to 13,200 pounds with the V6 twin-turbo engine when properly equipped. The Ford Ranger has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. This is the highest towing capacity of any truck in the Ranger's class.

As far as payload capacity is concerned, the Ford F-150 has a capacity of approximately 3,000 pounds with its largest engine in place. The Ranger's payload capacity is 1,860 pounds.

Another area of difference between the Ford F-150 and the Ford Ranger is the number of engine options available. The Ranger is equipped with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The F-150 offers many different engine options. The smallest of the engines offered with the Ford F-150 is the 3.3-liter TI-VCT V6 that produces up to 290 horsepower. Two very large and powerful engines are offered on the F-150. There is a 5.0-liter TI:-VCT V8 that delivers 395 horsepower and a 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel. These engines are powerful enough to let you use the F-150 for plowing snow.

If you want a smaller truck with a well-appointed interior that is tough and durable, the Ford Ranger makes a great choice. If you want a truck for bigger jobs, check out the Ford F-150.
