2022 Ford Ranger vs. Its Competition

2022 Ford Ranger
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup that competes for a wide range of buyers: work, play, commuters.

Adventure-seekers looking for more space could consider the new Ford Bronco—its rear seats are more useful.

The Tacoma looks good from the outside, but its interior is compromised and not very comfortable.

The Nissan Frontier is new for 2022, and it’s addressed lots of its interior quality and power deficits.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon aren’t as compelling here, and their safety scores are notably worse than rivals.
