The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.8
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. For those of us who don't live on a ranch, the 2008 Nissan Frontier is large enough to haul real people and cargo, but sized for the urban-congestion reality.
