2019 Ford Ranger vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma
Though not as heralded as some of its other chief competition, Ford’s rivalry with Toyota is one that has dominated both companies’ model lineups over the years. With the reintroduction of the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger to the Canadian mid-size pickup market, the longstanding battle between the Ranger and Toyota Tacoma is set to be reignited for the benefit of us all. Each of these pickups can offer strong, versatile and durable performance both inside and out, but which one best fits what you’re looking to accomplish?
With greater power ratings, towing and payload capacities than its Tacoma counterpart, the 2019 Ranger certainly starts off on the right foot. Keep reading to see more of how the Ranger and Tacoma stack up against each other!

A crucial factor behind the 2019 Ford Ranger’s market appeal, especially when compared to top competitors like the 2019 Tacoma, is how well it’s able to handle itself in the technology department. Both model lines are able to accommodate your off-roading needs quite nicely, thanks to innovations like Trail Control and a Terrain Management system, but when it comes to your experience inside, there’s no denying that the 2019 Ranger is better equipped for it all. Not only is its voice-activated navigation and SYNC® 3 infotainment class-leading, but it features a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot provided by FordPass™, something not present on the 2019 Tacoma. While you keep enjoying your drive, the Ranger is also working overtime to ensure that no obstacle is too much to handle – this is thanks to a wealth of safety technologies that the 2019 Tacoma just doesn’t offer. Some of these top innovations include:
- Blind Spot Information System w/ Trailer Coverage
- Pre-Collision Assist w/ Automatic Emergency Braking
- Automatic High-Beam Headlights
- Rear View Camera
- Lane-Keeping System
- Many more!
It’s because of all this that we expect to see the 2019 Ford Ranger be a hot-ticket vehicle when it’s released to Canadian dealerships later this year. Contact Sherwood Ford today to reserve the model or get more information!
