For a truck of its size, the Ranger’s towing capacity numbers are really impressive when you take a closer look.

With the towing package it’s able to tow as much as 7,500lbs in rear-wheel drive, which puts it way ahead of the competition.

The Ranger is able to out tow the likes of the Toyota Tacoma (6,400 lbs), Nissan Frontier (6,720 lbs), and GMC Canyon (7,000 pounds).

In fact, the Ranger is the only gas powered mid-size truck that can rival the new Jeep Gladiator’s towing capacity of 7,650 lbs. The only catch is that the Gladiator can only tow that much in its base Sport trim, while the Ranger can do it in any trim level.

What makes it unique is that the Ranger is able to do this with an EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine rather than resorting to a V-6 engine or bigger.

The Fast Lane Truck did an in-depth test of the Ranger and Tacoma’s towing capabilities where they had each truck tow a 5,000lbs trailer through their “Ike Gauntlet” in Colorado. They ended up giving the nod to the Ranger for it’s better ride and fuel efficiency after the test.


Now it’s one thing to see that the Ranger has strong towing numbers but it’s completely different when it’s used for daily life. What kinds of things are you towing with your Ranger? What’s the most you’ve used it for?

You're absolutely right - the Ranger's towing capacity is impressive for a truck its size. It's able to tow more than the Tacoma, Frontier, and Canyon, and it can even rival the Jeep Gladiator's towing capacity in some cases. What's really impressive is that the Ranger can do this with an EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine, rather than resorting to a V-6 engine or bigger. The Ranger definitely seems like the better option if you're looking for a mid-size truck that can tow a lot of weight. Thanks for sharing!
