Any issues popping up with the Rangers thumbcocker?

Issues: the rich, patriotic history will make a Toyota fanboy, smoking that Toyota crack, to get upset to the point he'll have to go install another T.R.D. sticker on the fkn thing.


"BY THE END OF THE WAR, FORD HAD BUILT 86,865 COMPLETE AIRCRAFT, 57,851 AIRPLANE ENGINES AND 4,291 MILITARY GLIDERS.
In addition to aircraft, Ford plants built 277,896 vehicles (tanks, armored cars and jeeps)."

https://www.ford.com/proud-to-honor/history#:~:text=DURING%20WORLD%20WAR%20II%2C%20FORD,needs%20during%20World%20War%20II.

Another thing to, DO NOT watch the movie Ford vs Ferrari with a Toyota fanboy, or hell cry that there wasn't a supra in the movie.

I was thinking about downsizing from my 2008 Tundra with 115,000 miles, and I drove a Ranger last week. I was impressed by it. Then I looked at the Consumer Reports auto issue and another Consumer Reports best and worst cars book. All I see is a sea of red dots for Fords generally and green dots for Toyotas generally. The 2019 Ranger had bad numbers. The 2020 was better. The prediction for the 2021 was below average.

I got into a Tacoma recently and hit my head getting into it. I am only 5'10". They are outrageously expensive for the size. The gas mileage looks pretty bad for a little truck.

In the end I decided that I have more faith in my Tundra for 2-3 years than the Ranger. The Tundra has been great except for routine maintenance, brakes, and a water pump at 85,000.

LOne alternator. However I had to drive through a creek and really deep mud. This truck is used in pennsylania every day in the gas patch. It gets no mercy.

How long has the new Ranger been out? Do you trust they've got it all worked-out?

If you've got a good relationship with the dealer, I guess it won't matter as much.

They've been selling the Ranger in Australia for quite a few years with a small diesel that competes directly with the Hilux. It's outsold the Hilux for several years now.

The 2.3 Ecoboost has a rather great reputation.

Wow, i didn't realize there was so much hatred for the Tacoma.
I guess when your number one, people will talk.

With a few days away from the fire, I investigated the Ranger.
Looks like a decent truck, a good 2nd choice.
I'll stick with the Tacoma I ordered.

Am I a fan boy ?
Over the last 40 years, I've put over 500,000 trouble free miles on Toyota 4X4 pick ups.
Maybe so, with good reason.

You're surprised guys have a strong opinion about trucks on the internet? Sheeeeit, I thought everyone was being rather cordial.

Has anyone thought about starting a poll ? How much fun would that be ?

I myself... I would get the Ranger.


If a good dog will last 15 years.... and a pick up will last you 10 years... then, by my math... I'm only good for three more trucks and two more dogs before I'm done.

They only win.... when they cheat.

Can you go into a little more detail on this please?

My dad did the same thing on his last two F150's over the past 20 years.

I'd go any other brand before Toyota; the Toyota dealers around these parts are such asses that they are just not worth dealing with...new or used regardless of what they are selling. I'd rather push a Yugo pick-up truck to NAPA everyday for more parts than deal with those jerks...just saying.

My knowledge of Tacoma trucks....having three

2nd Gen----2005-2015 are generally more desired

Even the smaller 1st Gen have a bigger following than the 3rd Gen 2016+

Recently sold my '14 DC SB SR5 ......manual......94K miles

drove it 3 yrs & sold $1K more than I paid for then.....

Went looking for a new small truck last week, or make that "mid-size" since small trucks seem to be extinct. Not hating on Toyota since it does have a fan following that is fairly well deserved - AFAIK my ex is still driving the Camry we bought in 1996 and I loved my 2003 Tundra for the short time I owned it, but I think Toyota (and definitely their dealerships) kind of live on their rep. They pretty much lost me with this latest iteration, the last Tacoma body style that interested me was in 2014.

Toyota's popularity actually works against it in some ways. The Ford and Nissan dealers had a dozen or more examples of their small trucks on the lot, the Toyota salesman was a snotty ass hole and pretty much laughed in my face that I would expect to see a new Tacoma actually physically on the lot - they are all pre-sold months in advance. Doubt I will darken that dealership's door in the future.

The Ranger has a lot going for it at least by the specs, and Ford knows how to make a good truck even if they don't always do so. Would love to have my 1990 F-150 back again, that was a great truck for my needs. My girlfriend back in the early 90's had a 1991 Ranger and by and large it was a good truck. If'n I do pull the trigger and get a new one it'll probalby be a Ranger or the Nissan Frontier, and likely the Ranger.

Unfortunately no one still makes what I really want, a single cab, small utility pickup. But an access cab with a 6' bed will still work just fine.

The engine has been around forever without a turbo, the transmission is same one used in F-150's.

Every Toyota I've ever ridden in feels like you are setting in a lawn chair...all frame no cushion..

And the paint will be gone in 10 years.

The transmission is used in all the Ford trucks including f450’s, 550’s and f-600’s.
