Mid-size pickups are counted on to provide the off-road capability of a sporty SUV with the overall strength of their larger brothers. That’s why models like the Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline are so celebrated, as they can handle both of these needs with power, precision and unrelenting confidence all in the same package. It’s because of this that they’ve both become highly coveted in the Canadian automotive market, so today we want to show you which of the two are best for your needs.

In terms of pure stats, the 2019 Ranger is a much better option than the Ridgeline in just about every regard. It’s more powerful, able to handle greater towing and payload, and offers standard All-Wheel Drive across all its trims – that's something that can’t be said for its Honda counterpart. Inside, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and high-tech touchscreen interface are just two of the advancements that have turned the Ranger into a true champion in the automotive world, and its safety features solidify its place as the best mid-size pickup in the business.
