Overall rating

6.8 / 10

It's been almost a decade since there was a new Ford Ranger at dealerships. A lot has changed in that time. Midsize pickup trucks are larger than ever before. They also offer more towing and hauling capability, more passenger comfort and more modern tech inside. With the debut of the 2019 Ford Ranger, expectations are high for what this latest entry can do.

The 2019 Ford Ranger isn't entirely new, though. Ford may have pulled the Ranger from the U.S. market back in 2011, but it didn't stop building and selling Rangers in other parts of the world. That same year consumers in some markets outside of North America could buy an all-new and suitably enlarged midsize Ranger that was developed by Ford Australia. Ford gave this world-market Ranger a face-lift for 2015, and it is that truck that forms the basis for our 2019 Ranger.

A lot of what you'll see on the Ranger will be familiar if you've spent any time in its big brother, the F-150. On the inside, the Ranger will get Ford's Sync 3 technology in addition to available features such as smartphone connectivity, blind-spot monitoring and even in-car Wi-Fi. The Ranger also comes with a healthy number of advanced safety features including forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assist.

Under the hood, the Ranger is currently slated to get only one engine: a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that produces 270 horsepower. While we'd prefer to have a few powertrains to choose from, this new mill certainly satisfies. It's gutsy and it provides plenty of power for accelerating quickly or pulling a heavy trailer. Maximum towing capacity is a stout 7,500 pounds.

In other ways, however, the 2019 Ranger fails to live up to the expectations set by an all-new debut. The truck's chassis and the interior design come across as carryovers from several years back, not something originated to expressly serve the needs of U.S. market customers in a competitive midsize-truck field.

Overall, the new Ranger ends up as a midpack offering. It's worth checking out if you want a midsize pickup with a strong standard engine and the latest advanced safety features. Otherwise, the more well-rounded Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tacoma will likely serve you better.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Ford Ranger as one of Edmunds' Best Trucks for Towing and Best Gas Mileage Trucks for this year.

2019 Ford Ranger models

The 2019 Ford Ranger is a midsize pickup truck. It is available with two cab configurations: extended cab (SuperCab) with a 6-foot bed or a crew cab with a 5-foot bed. There are also three trim levels: XL, XLT and Lariat. All Rangers are equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine (270 hp, 310 pound-feet of torque) paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The base Ranger XL is rather sparsely equipped, but there are some feature highlights. Standard equipment includes 16-inch steel wheels, a manually locking tailgate, automatic headlights, power windows, cloth upholstery, a four-speaker stereo system with AM/FM radio, air conditioning, a 3.5-inch center screen, a rearview camera, a USB port and an auxiliary jack. Also included is forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

On top of the XL's standard equipment the XLT adds 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, foglights, an upgraded grille, cruise control, automatic high beams, Ford's Co-Pilot360 system (lane keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert), a 110-volt power outlet, a 4.2-inch center screen with Ford Sync, an extra USB port, keyless entry with remote tailgate locking, a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and a six-speaker stereo.

The top trim level for the Ranger is the Lariat, which includes all of the XLT's equipment plus 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, an LED cargo lamp, power-adjustable and heated front seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch center touchscreen with Ford's Sync 3 interface, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Most of the equipment on upper trim levels can be had as options on the lower trims. Adaptive cruise control is available on both the XLT and Lariat trim levels. A navigation system and a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system are available for the Lariat only.

Also, there are a couple of option packages worth noting. The FX4 Off-Road package is available on the XL, the XLT and the Lariat. It includes off-road tires, upgraded shocks and suspension tuning, an electronically locking rear axle, front tow hooks, underbody skid plates, a terrain management system, and a low-speed crawl control system called Trail Control. A Trailer Tow package is available on all three trim levels as well, and it adds a four-pin/seven-pin wiring harness along with a Class IV trailer hitch.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Ford Ranger XLT Crew Cab w/ FX4 Off-Road Package (turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-4 | 10-speed automatic | 4WD).

Driving

7.0
The Ranger has one main trick: a stout 2.3-liter turbo engine. Beyond that, the Ranger fails to impress. The 10-speed automatic is great in other Fords, but here it's typically unresponsive. Handling, steering and braking all suffer from varying degrees of unengaging blandness.

Acceleration

9.0
The Ranger's 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder doesn't make the most horsepower in the class, but it's not far off the mark and easily makes the most torque. The result is a gutsy engine that delivers plenty of punch whenever you need it — if you use Sport mode. It also rules the dragstrip. In our testing, our 4WD Ranger covered 0-60 mph in a quick 6.8 seconds.

Braking

7.0
The Ranger stops reliably in routine situations, but nosedive can be excessive when you brake more suddenly. That was certainly the case during our 60-0 mph panic-stop test, which took 138 feet. That's longer than we like to see, but it is likely the result of the knobby off-road tires that come with our test truck's FX4 off-road package.

Steering

6.0
The steering is somewhat disappointing. The vehicle tracks well, and the truck has good straight-ahead stability. But from the driver's seat, it feels numb and disconnected as you turn the wheel. The effort is quite light, and it lacks any sort of meaningful buildup to give you the sense that you've turned the wheel enough.

Handling

7.0
The Ranger does track steadily and even accurately through corners. But that only holds up if the road is mostly flat. If the corner has wavy undulations, or if you brake deeply into such a corner, the suspension's inadequate damping translates into an unsteady bounding feel that can be disconcerting as you arc through a turn.

Drivability

7.0
Despite its punchy engine, the Ranger can exhibit lethargy in the transmission's default drive mode born from a reluctance to downshift. It wakes up and feels nicely responsive in Sport mode, but this kind of Jekyll and Hyde behavior seems unnecessary when you have a 10-speed transmission.

Off-road

6.0
The Ranger's approach and departure clearances are decent. But the suspension's lack of articulation can result in lifting a wheel or two off the ground, and the traction control system can't fully cover for the deficiency. The FX4 package has a locking rear differential, but it seemed more like a crutch to get over the suspension's basic shortcomings. The 4WD rotary control is maddening because its momentary switch operation leaves the door open for the computer to second-guess the driver, which it did during our test.

Comfort

6.5
Aspects of the Ranger's ride may be a deal-breaker for some truck shoppers. The seats are comfortable, and the cabin is generally quiet. But that doesn't matter if the cabin bobs around to the point where passengers start to feel queasy.

Seat comfort

7.5
The front seats are nicely shaped and comfortably padded. They also can accommodate larger folks yet still provide smaller occupants with enough side support. The rear seat bottoms are well-padded, but the corresponding seatbacks are a bit more vertical than we'd like.

Ride comfort

5.0
The Ranger absorbs small cracks and coarse road texture well, but it doesn't take much of an undulation in the road to generate very springy and bouncy ride motions. This too-soft and underdamped feel seems to amplify the size of certain bumps you pass over. More than one of our passengers actually got queasy during our testing.

Noise & vibration

7.5
There is some wind noise, but road noise from the tires is nicely muted. The four-cylinder engine typically sounds a bit reedy and mechanical, but it lets out a more pleasing V6-like growl when you stand on the gas.

Climate control

6.5
The climate control system works well enough, and the four dash-mounted vents are large. You can't shut them off individually, however. The worst part is the dual-zone automatic climate control system's many small buttons, which are hard to distinguish at a glance.

Interior

7.0
The Ranger is reasonably accommodating. The front seat is roomy and easy to get in and out of, but the same isn't true of the crew cab's rear bench. Likewise, visibility out the front is good, but the view out the rear is another story. Our biggest complaint involves the interior switchgear.

Ease of use

6.0
Although the Ranger's controls are generally easy to understand, certain ones are disappointing. The lack of physical shortcut buttons for the touchscreen and the many tiny buttons that make up the climate control interface are something you'll have to deal with every day. We're not fond of the layout and operational logic of the 4WD controls either.

Getting in/getting out

7.5
The front door openings are broad, and the floor height isn't too high. There's no driver-side grab handle, but the front passenger gets one. The rear seat is a bit harder to enter due to a lack of toe space.

Driving position

7.5
The driver's seat is nicely placed, and the telescoping steering wheel offers a good range of adjustment. The XLT's manual seats, however, have a coarse backrest angle adjustment. Some drivers might not be able to find their ideal spot.

Roominess

7.5
There's no lack of room in the front part of the Ranger's cab. Legroom is excellent, and headroom is more than sufficient. It's a bit tight at shoulder level, however. The back seat also has plenty of headroom, but legroom is tight. The front seats have a cutout to help counteract this issue, but it's not enough.

Visibility

7.0
It's fairly easy to see out the front because the hood slopes away and dips down above the headlights. The outside mirrors are sufficiently large, but the very tall bedsides and tailgate constrain the view directly out the back. The rearview camera alleviates this issue in parking lots but obviously not when cruising down the road.

Quality

7.0
Our test truck has consistent build quality, but the interior plastics are pretty unimpressive. The inside does not reflect recent advancements in other all-new pickups.

Utility

6.0
The Ranger posts a high towing number. Payload ratings are also good, but that figure trails three competitors when you look at the crew-cab 4WD model everyone wants. More importantly, the Ranger gets dragged down by everyday issues such as so-so storage and a one-piece back seat that doesn't provide many in-cab storage options.

Small-item storage

6.5
There's not a lot to talk about here. The center console has a small box under the armrest and a couple of cupholders. The door pockets are small, and the glovebox is unremarkable.

Cargo space

4.0
In-cabin storage is poor. The seat support structure gets in the way of any real storage with the rear seat bottom flipped up, and the seatback only tips forward far enough to access the jack; there is no provision to make a storage platform that way. What's worse, it's a one-piece seat. This unfathomable lack of a 60/40- or even a 50/50-split makes it impossible to seat three in the cab with a portion of the rear seat rigged for cargo.

Child safety seat accommodation

6.0
There are two sets of lower LATCH anchors that are somewhat deeply set. The Ranger has three top tethers, but you'll need to fold the rear seatback forward to access them. The cab lacks rear legroom, so bulkier rear-facing seats may not fit without forcing the front-seat occupants to compromise their positions.

Towing

8.0
The Ranger is rated at 7,500 pounds if you buy the optional trailer tow package, and it can tow more than the competition's gasoline engines can. But the difference isn't significant in a class where towing isn't the primary purchase reason. This new Ford lacks a built-in trailer brake controller option.

Hauling

7.0
The Ranger offers best-in-class payload on paper. But that claim is not true of the popular 4WD crew-cab configuration, whose payload specs slightly lag those of most other trucks. Daily concerns include tall bedsides that are hard to reach over, an undamped tailgate and a plain steel bed. But there are six tie-downs, and we appreciate how the central locking system includes the tailgate.

Technology

8.0
We like most of what the Ranger has to offer, especially if you buy an XLT or higher. Those come with a Sync 3 touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a broad suite of driver safety and convenience aids. But the touchscreen could stand a few shortcut buttons, and folks without a smartphone and reliable data service will need to spend $795 on the Technology package to get built-in navigation.

Audio & navigation

7.0
The Ranger's Sync 3 system relies on an 8-inch touchscreen. Sure, there are prominent volume and tune knobs. But what's lacking are physical shortcut buttons, which make it easier to do basic tasks without poking the screen to drill down to the relevant menus. Integrated navigation is optional.

Smartphone integration

8.5
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto really help simplify smartphone connections, and there are two data-level USB ports up front. Two more USB ports serve the rear seat, but they're for charging only.

Driver aids

8.5
The volume-selling XLT and high-end Lariat come standard with automatic emergency braking, auto high-beam control, lane keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control is optional on these trims.

Voice control

8.5
Sync 3 voice commands work reliably, and they respond to many natural language commands to access music, radio stations and certain navigation functions. iPhone users have the additional option to hold the button down longer to access Siri on their plugged-in smartphone.

Lariat 4dr SuperCab SB (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 10A)
I traded my 2017 Tacoma for the 2019 Lariat after owning a Tacoma since 2011 and I am thrilled I did. The Ranger rides more car like and is more comfortable. The Ranger 4cyl engine hands down outperforms the Tacoma 6cyl. I did not like the Tacoma transmission which I believe Toyota changed in 2016. I find the Ranger more comfortable as well. The interior is fine keeping in mind this is a truck and not a luxury car. The climate control buttons are a little small for my fingers. The bed seems deeper than the Tacoma but the Ranger lacks storage. i miss the behind the seat storage provided in the Tacoma. I find Ranger provides more visibility when making a left turn. The windshield post and mirror created a blind spot that required me to lean forward to see where I was going. There is one annoying thing. The tailgate hits the license plate frame when open. In my case the plate frame scratched the paint which pissed me off. I drilled new holes lowered the plate to correct. Probably an engineering mistake which hopefully Ford will correct. I included this in my review to Ford. Hopefully someone reads them and with any luck some will respond. No regrets. BTW I had a number of people give me a thumbs up while driving and stopped a lights.

XL 4dr SuperCab SB (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 10A)
I went to my local Ford to purchase a different vehicle they had advertised, then I saw this white 2WD 2 door Ranger, did not realize they were back. I have to admit I like the 2 door base units with steel rims and rubber floor mat, anyway the sales-guy offed the keys for a drive and I decided to go for it, did not expect much as I had owned a 2.3L Ranger in the past, good little truck and never had an issue but you know, little 99 HP utility truck. First traffic light I pulled away and about 15-20 MPH I decided to stab the throttle a little to see if anything was there, d@mm I was surprised at the immediate rush of power that set me back in the seat like a true performance car, tried a dead stop run, impressive, passing at hwy speed, impressive, etc. I was totally taken back because I had not read anything about these new Rangers. Once back to the dealer I found out I was driving a high compression, turbocharged, inter-cooled vehicle with a 10 speed transmission and 3.73 final drive, no wonder, that is text book high performance and it will outrun anything in its class, Toyota, Jeep, Colorado, Nissan. Now let me give you some handy info, if you look you will see reports of 0 to 60 MPH in the 6.7s to 7.4s range on the internet, but, they put the same drive-train in all Rangers and the spec is always a 4 door 4WD,.. the 2 door 2WD is around 500 LB lighter and has been tested at 0 to 60 at a flat 6 sec. my rough test look the same or slightly better... food for thought. Once I have had this unit for a while I will return with any negatives or updates to report, right now I have only two complaints and they are common to all ford trucks, rear end sky high in the air and the irritating auto stop, for the sky high rear end Ford knows about this because on their site they photo-shop their pictures to make the trucks look like they sit level, like a Toyota, but they do not, so first order of business I installed a front 2 inch leveling kit, and a quick internet search revealed a plug and play device that solved the auto stop irritation, with that I am very happy and impressed with the new ford ranger so far.

Lariat 4dr SuperCab 4WD SB (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 10A)
Test drove this Lariat FX4 and a Tacoma TRD Offroad with premium and technology package. Overall it was slightly more comfortable, and had slightly better performance. A little more room in the backseat. I liked the truck a lot. Pricing is where it went off the rails. The loaded to the max Tacoma msrp was $41k, marked down to $37.9k. The Ranger was $46k (!) and they wouldn’t move on the price even after I was very straight forward about the Tacoma’s price and my desire to buy the Ranger if they could come down a little. In the end I bought the Tacoma and it’s a great truck. The Ranger is nice, but it’s not worth what they’re asking for it.

Safety

Our experts like the Ranger models:

Front and Rear Parking Sensors
Warns the driver of objects both in the front and the rear of the vehicle to prevent low-speed impacts.
Automatic Emergency Braking
Alerts the driver of an imminent front collision and can automatically apply the brakes if the driver doesn't react in time.
Lane-Keep Assist
Emits a warning when there's a lane change without the activation of a turn signal and can provide steering input to keep the driver in the lane.

2019 Ford Ranger First Impressions

2019 Ford Ranger First Drive

Midsize Pickup Shopping Just Got More Interesting

It's hard to imagine Ford not dominating a pickup truck segment, much less standing on the sidelines with no product to sell. Yet the Blue Oval hasn't offered a compact or midsize truck since it ceased production of its Ranger in 2011. And really, our interest in the Ranger waned well before that. The sad Ranger spent its last years as a fleet-optimized compact truck rather than something typical truck consumers would want.

Meanwhile, those manufacturers who stuck with the small truck segment have evolved their products from compacts into midsize pickups with broad appeal. Now the growing popularity of the midsize truck segment is too big to ignore. The new 2019 Ford Ranger will step back into what is now a very vibrant midsize-truck marketplace. Question is, does it have what it takes to take on the class leaders?

What Is the New Ford Ranger, Anyway?

Ford may have pulled the Ranger from the U.S. market back in 2011, but it didn't stop building and selling Rangers in other parts of the world. That same year consumers in numerous markets outside of North America could buy an all-new and suitably enlarged midsize Ranger that was developed by Ford Australia. Ford gave this world-market Ranger a face-lift for 2015, and it is that truck that forms the basis for our new 2019 Ford Ranger.

Our Ranger is different in a few significant ways. For one, it is built in the United States, which is a necessary step to avoid the 25 percent tariff — the infamous "chicken tax" — that has long been a barrier to many an imported pickup. Americans typically place a higher value on towing capacity, so the frame and certain suspension components of the domestic Ranger are beefier. In addition, Ford made a lot of changes to quell noise and vibration, including a new cab mounting system that employs hydraulic mounts, to make this Ranger more suitable for everyday use.

Much of the sheet metal is identical, but the domestic version has a new nose. Instead of an integrated front bumper, the 2019 Ford Ranger has a separate steel front bumper with an obvious horizontal split line. We like the durability of this change, and the split line is sure to be a hit with those who would swap out the stock bumper for a winch-capable alternative. It also gives this new 2019 Ranger a faint whiff of 2004-2008 F-150 front-end styling.

A Single Engine and Transmission Choice

Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine exclusive to the American truck. It makes 270 horsepower and delivers 310 pound-feet of torque on 87 octane regular unleaded gasoline. The Colorado and Tacoma's V6 engines make more power, but neither puts out nearly as much torque, which is the more relevant figure when it comes to pickups. Our test truck — a 4WD crew cab, which is the heaviest version — felt plenty gutsy during our test drive.

The four-cylinder is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. You might expect excessive shifting from this many gears. But like on the F-150, the Ranger's transmission feels unobtrusive. It skips gears imperceptibly when you're light on the gas. Press down harder, and an optimal ratio is always nearby. We experienced no indecisiveness from the transmission's shift programming. Such a broad spread of gears is a boon to highway cruising, off-road crawling and mountain towing alike.

The Ranger's maximum tow rating is high indeed. All Ranger cab and drive configurations are rated at 7,500 pounds with the optional tow package, a figure that is higher than everything in the segment except the Colorado/Canyon turbodiesel. We're still of the mind that regular towing at this level is best conducted with a full-size truck, but we don't doubt this engine and transmission can pull it off.

As for rated fuel economy, the Ranger has leaped over the gasoline engines in its class. The rear-wheel-drive Ranger is rated at 23 mpg highway (21 city/26 highway), and the 4WD truck is good for 22 mpg combined (20 city/24 highway). Both are 2 mpg higher than comparable Colorado and Tacoma V6 engines and a single mpg better than the Ridgeline. We're not yet convinced this on-paper dyno-derived advantage will persist in real-world conditions, however, because we've found rated fuel economy in some other turbocharged engine-equipped Ford vehicles to be hard to replicate.

Ride, Handling, Off-Road

Underneath, the Ranger rides on utterly familiar truck running gear. The front employs independent double wishbones with coil-over springs and a stabilizer bar, and a solid axle and leaf springs support the rear end. All Rangers employ monotube shock absorbers front and rear, and all of the above have been systematically retuned to suit North American roads, driving conditions and ride comfort tastes.

Our test truck was fitted with the optional FX4 Off-Road package, which can be fitted to any Ranger 4WD trim level. This package brings with it a recalibrated suspension with specially tuned shocks, 17-inch wheels with 265/65R17 (aka 31-inch) tires, an electronic-locking rear differential and extra skid plates. There's also a Terrain Management System to allow the driver to adjust the traction control to suit different surfaces and a Trail Control system that works as off-road cruise control in low- or high-range 4WD modes up to 20 mph.

On the road, the Ranger rides smoothly over cracked surfaces, but at speed it tends to feel springy and underdamped over larger dips and swales in the pavement. The truck steers accurately through corners and displays good straight-ahead sense on the highway, but little of that confidence feeds back through the antiseptic steering to the driver. Our brief off-highway experience was limited to a small man-made course of Ford's design, so all we can say is that the damping feels about right on lumpy dirt tracks. As for underbody clearance, the approach, departure and breakover angles look promising, but the Tacoma may still have it beat here.

Looks Like a Ford Inside

Inside, the Ranger looks exactly like a Ford, and not much is different from the world-market update that occurred in 2015. It's new to us but clearly not a new design. Much of the switchgear is familiar. The 8-inch Sync 3 touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard lacks physical shortcut buttons, so you'll be tapping the screen itself quite often. We like that there is a volume and tune knob just below, but the dual-zone climate controls that reside lower down are tiny and hard to distinguish, especially in the daytime with the lower cabin bathed in shadow.

The driving position is just about perfect. The steering wheel offers generous telescopic range, and the height-adjustable seats (manual and cloth in our XLT but power and leather in a Lariat) are nicely shaped and offer a good range of adjustment. Unsurprisingly, the crew cab's rear seat isn't generous enough for tall folk to occupy the front and rear seats at the same time, but only the Honda Ridgeline has an ample-enough midsize cab for that. By far the Ranger's biggest seating gaffe is its one-piece rear seat. With no split-folding mechanism, there is no good way for one rear occupant and cargo to coexist side by side.

As for tech, the 8-inch touchscreen comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You also get four USB ports — the two in front will talk to the system, and the two in back are strictly there to provide power to rear-occupant smartphones. Built-in navigation is optional as part of a Technology package that also adds adaptive cruise control (ACC) functionality to the standard automatic emergency braking system. Sounds like a good deal, but the catch is the ACC is not a full-speed implementation that works down to zero mph. It disengages and beeps at 10 mph, so you'd better be paying full attention.

2019 Ford Ranger Pricing and Release Date

The new Ford Ranger won't appear on dealer lots until the first quarter of 2019, but complete 2019 Ford Ranger prices are available right now. You can see detailed pricing and noodle around with various option combinations over at the Edmunds 2019 Ford Ranger build and price page.

But here are some broad strokes. There are three trim levels: XL, XLT and Lariat. You can get a crew cab (SuperCrew) with a short bed or an extended cab (SuperCab) with a regular bed. There is no long-wheelbase version that pairs the crew cab with the regular bed. All are available with or without four-wheel drive. The cheapest XL 2WD extended cab goes for $25,395 with destination included. The swankiest Lariat 4WD crew cab starts at $39,480. Heard about the Ranger Raptor sold in Australia? Yeah, well, don't hold your breath. We suspect Ford isn't ready to cannibalize F-150 Raptor sales just yet, and it's got a Bronco coming as well.

Meanwhile, the XLT crew-cab 4WD is destined to be the most popular combination, and that's the one we sampled. It starts out at $35,210. Ours had a few options, namely Equipment Group 301A (Sync 3 touchscreen, leather-wrapped wheel, satellite radio), the FX4 Off-Road package, the Sport Appearance package, a trailer tow package, the Technology package, remote start, and a spray-in bedliner. All that brought the cost up to $40,410. A decked-out Lariat with our optional gear would cost $44,455.

Is the Ranger worth it? From our recent stint behind the wheel, we say yes. It's a well-mannered truck with credible off-road features. Its on-road manners seem to exceed those of the Tacoma, but its off-road performance might not. Likewise, its off-road capability does look set to best the Colorado, but its road manners may or may not. If you're thinking three-way comparison test, so are we. However that turns out, the reappearance of the Ford Ranger can only be a good thing for the midsize truck buyer. We're glad it's back.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ford Ranger?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
