The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Ford Ranger isn’t so modern and refined, but it’s a practical, fuel-efficient, and reasonably safe choice for those who just want a truck. The 2008 Toyota Tacoma covers the basics, at a price that’s lower than full-size trucks.
