After an 8-year absence, the Ford Ranger midsize pickup returns to take on rivals like the Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado. It doesn’t offer quite as many cab/bed variations, but it does come packing a potent turbocharged engine, an impressive 7,500-pound tow rating, and class-leading payload capacity. An FX4 off-road package and driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control further impress.

Thoroughly modern, it comes with a 270-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, 10-speed automatic transmission, standard active safety systems like automatic emergency braking, and a choice of 2-door SuperCab or 4-door SuperCrew cab models that accommodate four or five passengers, respectively.
