    Worse engineering? If you magazine race the two the Ranger is better for sure. If you just want a truck that starts every time and you can go exploring with the Tacoma wins. Not everybody wants that of course and the Ranger works for plenty of folks.

    Ford sells every Ranger they build. They only build about 5,000 of them. Ford sells so many Broncos, Ford had to build less Rangers.

    Well the Bronco is cool and competes against the Wrangler which is even worse reliability. There are still large swaths of the country who won’t buy imported trucks so I’m not surprised. I fully intended to buy a Ranger for that matter until I drove both and did some more homework.

    Well for one, it’s a direct injection engine so carbon buildup is inevitable, and two it has a turbo which is more moving parts so it’s something else to go wrong.

    The speculation is Q3 2024 which means the truck will not be realistic for most of us until well into 2025 at the earliest. Have not seen any new Tacoma spy shots recently; maybe they're all set and gearing up for production.

    I’m not too sure the Tacoma will be the first full EV Toyota production vehicle. There’s a LOT resting on this new gen and Toyota knows they absolutely can’t drop the ball on this new gen like they did with the Tundra. I think they’ll introduce an EV Tacoma once they have a reliable platform that’s been out for a little bit of time.

    3rd Gen Tacos are also direct injection, like everything these days. Albeit, Toyota uses a dual injection system (D-4S) to combat carbon buildup. Seems like a great way to do it.
    I think newer Ford Ecoboost engines have a dual injection system as well…

    How did Toyota drop the ball on the new Tundra? Seems like a solid truck, better/competitive MPGs, etc….

    And Toyota sells every Tacoma it makes, so that isn't a good argument. I had a brand new 2019 Ranger, it was an awful mess. I had it 2.5 years and put 34,000 miles on it driving every day in all conditions. It was at the dealer for warranty issues constantly. I got rid of it for the Tacoma and am very glad I did. It would take me almost a whole page to type out all the problems with that truck. Now it could be I just had a first model year lemon, but some of the issues I had people are reporting in later years, so some of those problems probably weren't just a first model year fluke. I have owned Fords continually for 40 odd years, no more new ones for me. They left me when they started making the mod motor junk, now we are in the ecoboost era. No thanks!

    Toyota has been making reliable turbo diesels such as the 1KD, 1VD & 1KZ for nearly 4 decades.

    Those same motors have been powering every flagship 4x4 Toyota, such as the LC 70 series & the Hilux, out & through the most remote parts of the world for just as long.

    Toyota knows a thing or two about reliable forced induction bud

    And yet the new Tundra has had several extremely early turbo failures. Nobody is perfect.

    ... what's the bZ4X?

    They already have a full BEV. I think that yota would do better with a PHEV, personally.

    This is true, especially given the Tundra motor is a brand new design. I'm sure the turbo diesels had hiccups when they were first released.

    Rumor has it the new Taco will be using the 2.4L 4cyl hybrid turbo from the Lexus NX350h. Lexus forums might be a good place to check for issues w/ the new powertrain.

    Isn't this the car that got recalled because the tires fell off?

    Like, so many.
    Does that Ranger have a rear locker?
