What Are the Differences Between the Ford Ranger and the Nissan Frontier?

Tailor-made for work or play, the Ford Ranger will stand out from the automotive crowd in this 2019 Ford Ranger vs 2018 Nissan Frontier comparison. Despite a more affordable entry-level price tag that starts at $18,995, the Nissan Frontier falls short in terms of power and capability with a base 152-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a lackluster 261-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 engine. When equipped with the 4.0-liter engine, the Nissan Frontier tows a less-than-impressive 6,690 pounds.

Ford Ranger XL trim levels will start at $24,330 and come complete with a power-packed 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine and a wealth of standard features. Highlights of the entry-level Ford Ranger include a 4.2-inch Ford SYNC® LCD infotainment system with Bluetooth, Ford MyKey® safety technology, SYNC® Connect capabilities, a rearview camera, trailer sway control and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

Power and performance are highlights of the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger with a 270-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine under the hood that shells out a best-in-class 310 pound-feet of torque. Married to a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, the Ford Ranger is expected to deliver impressive fuel-economy ratings with standard Auto Start-Stop technology. Tailor-made for the jobsite, the Ford Ranger will tow a best-in-class 7,500 pounds of cargo and possesses a best-in-class payload of 1,860 pounds that the Nissan Frontier cannot match.

Drivers who want to amp up the excitement in the next-generation Ford Ranger can opt for an innovative four-wheel drive system that employs a locking rear differential and hit the trail. With the addition of a Terrain Management System™ with four terrain modes and Trail Control™ off-road cruise control, the Ford Ranger promises unrivaled mud-slingin' thrills at every turn. When it comes to day-to-day errands, the Ford Ranger will upgrade your ride with an 8-inch Ford SYNC® 3 touchscreen infotainment system that gives you and your family access to Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and onboard Wi-Fi.
