2023 Ford F-150 vs. Ford Ranger

No matter how you drive or work in Palm Beach Gardens, there’s a Ford truck that will be a perfect fit for you. If you know you don’t need a heavy-duty truck, then you’re likely deciding between the 2023 Ford F-150 and Ford Ranger. Both trucks have everything you expect from a Ford truck: exceptional power, plenty of features, and unmistakeable style that’s always in fashion on Lake Worth streets. Take a look at the Al Packer Ford West Palm Beach comparison between the new Ford F-150 and Ford Ranger to start the process of deciding which one works best for you. 



Ford F-150 vs. Ford Ranger: Price 

It’s probably no surprise that the full-size Ford F-150 comes with a slightly higher price tag than the midsize Ford Ranger. Here’s how their starting MSRPs compare: 

  • 2023 Ford F-150 Starting Price –$33,695 Starting MSRP
  • 2023 Ford Ranger Starting Price – $27,400 Starting MSRP

Ford F-150 vs. Ford Ranger: Capability

Again, these differences come down to the difference between driving a full-size truck, which is going to have a more powerful engine and more capabilities than a smaller midsize model like the Ford Ranger. That said, the Ford Ranger has the best towing and payload capacities in its midsize class. You’ll also have multiple engine options with both trucks so you can choose the amount of power you need without paying for more than you need. Let’s compare the base level engine for both models:
