The most direct competitors for the Ranger are the GMC Canyon/Chevrolet Colorado compact trucks.
The Ranger has a smoother V-6 engine, but the GM twins have an optional five-cylinder engine with more power.
The Canyon and Colorado also offer a true four-door model with a back bench seat, though it's uncomfortable for long trips.
