The new Ford Ranger is just hitting the streets in the U.S., and before it’s settled at the stop lights of America, we have already raced the new midsizer against its half-ton brother.
For the Ford on Ford drag race, we had a 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat FX4 powered by a 2.3-liter turbocharged straight four making 310 lb-ft of torque and 270 horsepower. The transmission for both trucks is a 10-speed automatic, which in the F-150 is paired to a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 making 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The weight difference between the two trucks is about 600 pounds, with the advantage going to the Ranger.
When looking at size, the Ranger is six inches skinnier than the F-150 and has an overall length of 210.8 inches, about 10 inches shorter than an F-150 SuperCab model and 20 inches shorter than a SuperCrew.
Both of these trucks feature a Sport mode as well, which adjusts the shift mapping and throttle response to make sure you get the most out of those turbos.
So, which truck is quicker? Well you’ll have to watch the video above to find out.
