Ford Ranger vs Toyota Hilux: Specifications Comparison

Pick-up vehicles have come a long way, haven’t they? Especially in the Malaysian market. Gone are the days when these daddy vehicles were just meant to carry goods across towns. Today one can find these cars being used as a family vehicle, which was not the case earlier.

And you cannot take away the due credit from the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Hilux for being the trendsetters. With amazingly comfortable interiors and stylish exterior, these pickups are now making their way into more and more households.

We will be making an in-detail comparison between the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux based on various criterions in this article.

Design & Interior

With the much-needed recent remodelling, the Hilux has managed to turn many heads. The Ranger, on the other hand, has its own unique appeal. It’s tough to choose between the two when it comes to looks.

The chrome grille at the front gives Hilux a lot more dominant and aggressive look as compared to the Ranger. The Hilux’s bulged headlamps with LED projectors also take an edge over Ranger’s Halogen projectors headlamps.

The 21st-century robust design of the Ranger comes with a sturdy look. The chrome grille at the front of the top variant cannot go unnoticed. Another thing we liked about the Ford Ranger is the way the company has managed to give a slightly different design to each of its variants.

The interior design of the Ranger seems to be inspired by the Ford Everest, especially, when you look at its steering wheel, dashboard, and the center console. The pickup vehicle is also very spacious from the inside.

When it comes to the Toyota Hilux, you will find black leather seats on the inside which perfectly complements the overall appearance of the vehicle. Its 6.1-inch touchscreen dashboard, notable knee room, and comfortable seats are some of the features which are hard to ignore.

Ranger vs Hilux dimension

The Ranger with a length of 5,362 mm is longer than the Toyota Hilux by 32mm and also a winner when it comes to comparing the width of both the vehicles, not by much though. The Ranger having a height of 1,815 mm also soars higher than the Hilux, which is limited to 1,795 mm. The Ranger also has a better wheelbase of 3,220 mm in comparison to 3,085 mm of the Hilux. The Hilux, though, beats the Ranger when we talk about the ground clearance.

This pickup is available with two different engine options: a 2.5-liter mill delivering a maximum power of 144 PS at 3,400 rpm along with a peak torque of 343 Nm at 1600-2800 rpm, and a 3.0-liter engine that is capable of producing a maximum power of 163 PS at 3,400 rpm and peak torque of 343 Nm at 1,400-3,200 rpm.

The Ranger, when running on its 2.2-liter engine produces a maximum power of 160 PS at 3,200 rpm with a peak torque of 385Nm between 1,600 and 2,600 rpm. Its 3.2-liter engine, on the other hand, churns out a maximum power of 200 PS at 3,000 rpm along with a peak torque of 470 Nm between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm.
