The towing and payload capacity of the Ford Ranger are slightly higher than those of the Toyota Tacoma. All Ranger models have a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs. In comparison, SuperCab RWD vehicles with a 6-foot-long bed can carry up to 1,860 lbs in their beds. Meanwhile, Tacoma's maximum towing capability is 6,800 lbs in versions equipped with the V-6 engine and towing package. Tacoma vehicles with an Access Cab body, 6-foot-long bed, RWD, and I-4 engine combination have a measly payload of 1,685 lbs.
The Ford Ranger has more power than you'd anticipate because of its turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. It has a 270 hp engine and can accelerate swiftly on steep inclines. It has fast steering and superb handling, so you always feel in command of the vehicle. Trailer Sway Control is a standard feature, making it easier to maintain control of whatever you're towing, especially in wet conditions. The Toyota Tacoma has plenty of power, but it doesn't accelerate as rapidly as the Ford Ranger, which makes it seem sluggish at times.
