If you've been searching for the perfect pickup, you know Ford has your back. In their lineup of reliable and robust trucks, you'll find the popular F-150 and Ranger, ready to take your adventures to the next level.

There are a few key differences between the 2020 Ford Ranger and F-150. The first, and most notable, is in their size. The Ranger is a midsize pickup truck, while the F-150 is full-size--which lands them in two different classes. However, as Ford vehicles, they both top their classes when it comes to design, performance, and technology.

In this 2020 Ford F-150 vs. Ranger comparison, we at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester will introduce you to these two models and show you how they stack up against each other. Pickup-shoppers in West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern should read on to learn more!
