The midsize pickup truck market is full of great options. If you have your eye on a truck with smooth handling, strong towing capability and a comfortable cabin then the 2020 Ford Ranger is worth considering. The Ford Ranger returned to the U.S. market in 2019 in grand style with a brand-new look and new technologies.
For 2020, the Ranger receives even more updates in the form of some minor revisions to its selection of standard equipment and adds a new, optional FX2 off-road package. In fact, it’s the 2020 Ford Ranger’s rewarding performance that helps this truck stand out from the competition. To best showcase all that this truck is capable of, we have put it head-to-head against the 2019 Nissan Frontier.

Nissan’s Frontier pickup truck has been a staple on the U.S. market for many years. It’s thanks to the truck’s many configurations that make it easy to make it into anything from a work truck to an off-road-ready machine. Even with its strengths, the 2019 Nissan Frontier struggles to overcome lackluster handling, poor fuel economy and less-than-impressive cabin materials.
Not only does the 2020 Ford Ranger offer more engine power, but it has more towing capacity and stronger fuel economy figures. Where the 2019 Nissan Frontier comes in at an EPA estimated fuel economy of 19 city and 23 highway mpg, the 2020 Ford Ranger has a 21 city and 26 highway mpg rating.
In terms of handling, the 2020 Ford Ranger boasts quick acceleration and nimble handling thanks to a powerful engine and a fine-tuned suspension.
