Is fuel economy something that is important to you because you tend to do a lot of driving in your truck? The fuel economy of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma blows the 2019 Ford Ranger out of the water! With the kind of gas mileage the Toyota Tacoma gets, you will need to make fewer stops to the gas station.

Cruise Control is a feature that can be found on most make and model vehicles, even very old vehicles that barely run anymore.

This comes with a $4,000 increase in price.

Do you sometimes begin to drift into the lane next to you? We are all guilty of this. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes standard with a lane-departure warning system to help you avoid doing this. The technology is not available on the 2019 Ford Ranger unless you go up a trim level. Here again, you will see a $4,000 price tag increase.

Finally, as you increase in trim levels, you would expect the horsepower of the engine to also increase. The top trim level of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma has a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. The engine in the 2019 Ford Ranger is the same in all of the trim levels.
