2020 Ford Ranger vs 2020 Ford F-150

Serving Havelock, NC

When it comes to trucks, not many automakers can compete with Ford. Two of the company's hottest options for 2020 are the F-150 and the Ranger. Both are sleek powerhouses with a few similarities, such as MPG and warranty details. But it's the differences between the two that make each model stand out.


Both trucks pull between 18 and 26 MPG on the highway. In the city, the Ranger gets 19-21 MPG, and the F-150, depending on the engine, can get anywhere between 15 and 20 MPG. Speaking of engines, the Ranger comes with a turbocharged 2.3-liter Inline-4 that can muster 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. With the F-150, you've got a choice of six powerful engines (some with Ecoboost or turbocharged) that are either V6s or V8s and give you between 290 and 450 horsepower and between 265 and 510 lb-ft of torque. Both trucks come with a 10-speed automatic transmission. If you're looking to do some towing, then you'll want to opt for the Ford F-150, which has a towing capacity between 9,000 and 11,000 lbs. The Ford Ranger has a much lower towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.


The F-150 comes in six different trim levels, with all of them featuring C-shape headlights and a giant front grille. With the F-150, you can choose a Black, Chrome, or Sport Appearance package. The truck also comes with steel, aluminum, chrome-like, or alloy wheels. The bed length for the F-150 ranges between 5.5 and 8 feet long, and it has an overall length option between 209.3 and 250.5 inches. The Ford Ranger has three different trims with the same appearance packages as the F-150 and has the option of steel, aluminum, or chrome-like wheels. It's got bed length options ranging between six and seven feet long and an overall length of 210.8 inches.


All trim levels of the F-150 come with a rearview camera with trailer hitch assist, and automatic energy braking. Higher trim levels enjoy heated power mirrors, keyless entry, and lane-keep assist. Also, at the higher levels, you'll have a push-button start, rear park sensors, and a twin-panel sunroof at the highest trim level. As far as infotainment is concerned, the F-150 offers FordPass Connect with Wi-Fi as standard, and higher trim levels, such as the XLT, get SYNC 3, which has an eight-inch screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Higher trim levels get SiriusXM and voice-activated navigation. The Ford Ranger also comes with many of the features that are standard with the F-150. However, it also has a few standard features that are upper-trim features with the F-150, including satellite radio, keyless entry, and remote engine start. SYNC 3 is also standard with the Ford Ranger.
