The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.0
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. With the addition of the new V-8 option, the 2009 GMC Canyon goes from unappealing to quite competitive.
