Foreign Ranger Comparison
We all hear a lot about how domestic and foreign trucks battle for the attention of Canada’s auto buyers. While the Ford trucks available from Grogan Ford Lincoln have dominated the market for years, some newer models from Nissan and Toyota have merged for comparison in Watford. To make the right choice concise, the team at Grogan Ford Lincoln thought it would be helpful to put our popular 2020 Ford Ranger up against the 2020 Nissan Frontier and 2020 Toyota Tacoma.
2020 Ford Ranger
This dynamic midsize truck is a great combination of performance, style, safety, and convenience. The 2020 Ford Ranger is powered by a 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger that delivers 270 horsepower and a gas-powered best-in-class 310 lb.-ft. of torque. When you combine this robust engine with the 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, you can expect up to 3,402 kg in towing, a payload rating of 748 kg, and fuel consumption as low as 9.8 L/100km city. Because the 2020 Ford Ranger is great to take both on and off-road, this pickup can be equipped with independent A-arm front suspension with nitrogen gas-pressurized shocks, parabolic rear leaf springs, and the exciting FX4 Off-Road Package. As with all the mid-size Ford pickup trucks available form Grogan Ford Lincoln, the 2020 Ford Ranger is both exceptionally safe and comfortable thanks to the Ford Co-Pilot360, Curve Control, dual-zone electronic climate control, BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Coverage, and heated leather-trimmed eight-way power driver and passenger bucket seats. If you love your music and infotainment, you’ll enjoy the available B&O Sounds System, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and an eight-inch LCD touchscreen with swiping and pinch-to-zoom capabilities
2020 Nissan Frontier
Available in seven trims, the 2020 Nissan Frontier seats up to five and most trims come standard with a 2.5L DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. When it comes to the worksite, the 2020 Nissan Frontier has a maximum towing rating of 3,044 kg and a payload of 649 kg. The Nissan Frontier has a five-speed automatic transmission that contributes to a fuel economy rating of as low as 10.3 L/100km city.
2020 Toyota Tacoma
The 2020 Toyota Tacoma is a capable midsize truck that is offered in nine exterior colors, two cab sizes, and six trims. The powertrain of the Toyota Tacoma centers on a 3.5L V6 engine that can put out 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. Other benefits include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Toyota Safety Sense system, an available Multi-Terrain Select system, and fuel economy as low as 10.5 L/100km city. One of the major drawbacks of the Toyota Tacoma is its cost.
