The 2022 Tacoma and 2022 Ranger are well-built trucks that are ready for years of driving.
Toyota and Ford trucks are prepared to withstand all the usual wear and tear by including complimentary maintenance options. The only difference is that you'll have to earn FordPass™ points before you can take advantage of the rewards, while your Tacoma comes right off the bat with the ToyotaCare factory-scheduled maintenance plan for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Both vehicles also offer active safety features designed to help keep you safe, wherever your adventures take you.

Wherever your travels take you, drive with confidence from the active safety features that come standard with the Tacoma.
Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) technology is designed to work to help you stay safe on the road. This active safety suite adds a Pre-Collision System w/Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beams (AHB) to every Tacoma.
Ford drivers will have to purchase the Ford Co-Pilot360™ package in conjunction with the 2022 base model Ranger XL to get Auto-High Beam Headlamps, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Monitoring, Lane-Keeping System, and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). These features come standard with the XLT and Lariat.
When most recently evaluated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), both trucks received 4-star Overall Safety Ratings. The Tacoma received a higher 4-star Rollover Star Rating, while the Ranger got a 3-star rating.
Enjoy your drive with the standard multimedia features and more wiggle room in the back row in the Toyota Tacoma.
The Toyota Tacoma Double Cab models help keep you and your passengers in the back comfortable with more hip and shoulder room. Passengers will have 57.2/56.3 inches of hip room (front/rear) and 58.3/58.9 inches (front/rear) of shoulder room. Comparatively, the Ford Ranger SuperCrew® models have 55.8/53.5 inches of hip room (front/rear) and 56.7/56.3 inches of shoulder room (front/rear).
More space isn't all you get with the Tacoma. Enjoy the benefit of a 7-in. standard touchscreen infotainment center, while the Tacoma SR5 and higher have a standard 8-in. touchscreen. The Ranger XLT and Lariat come with an 8-in. LCD Capacitive Touchscreen. You'll need to purchase an available package to get the same on the base model 2022 Ford Ranger, which just comes standard with a 2.3-in. productivity screen.
Listen to the latest hits with standard Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Amazon Alexa compatibility in the Tacoma. Hear it all through six standard speakers. For similar standard features, you'll need to get the 2022 Ranger XLT or Lariat, higher-priced Ranger trims that come with six speakers and SYNC® 3 with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® standard.
A truck is no fun if it's all work and no play. Take the kayak out to the lake. Splash up some mud on the trails. Whatever you want to do, these vehicles have what it takes to get you there.
The Tacoma is the perfect off-roading vehicle with features like 4WDemand part-time 4WD with electronically controlled transfer case and Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD) across all 4x4 models. For extreme terrain, the TRD Off-Road has an electronically controlled locking rear differential to prevent slippage, TRD Off-Road tuned suspension with Bilstein® shocks, and available Crawl Control (CRAWL) with Multi-Terrain Select (MTS). You can get the optional Terrain Management System™ with four selectable drive modes in the 2022 Ranger. With 4x4 Ranger models, you can also upgrade to the optional FX4 Off-Road package, which includes an electronic-locking rear axle and off-road tuned suspension.
To give you more distance from the ruts and rocks below, the Tacoma has a standard ground clearance of 9.4 in. The standard ground clearance for the Ranger 4x2 is 8.4-in. and 8.9-in. for the 4x4 models. You'll need to get the Tremor SuperCrew® 4x4 cab style to get a 9.7-in ground clearance.
After miles of driving, it's important to take your truck in for regular tuneups. The Tacoma has two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, of factory-scheduled maintenance included with the ToyotaCare plan. Ford customers can accumulate complimentary maintenance points by earning FordPass™ rewards when they purchase services and goods.
These mid-size trucks are ready to help you hit the road — or the road less traveled.
To keep you going over rocks, mud, or other things that Mother Nature throws at you, the Tacoma TRD Off-Road comes with Crawl Control (CRAWL) with Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) and an enhanced suspension. Similar features are available on the 2022 Ranger 4x4 models, but you'll need to add the FX4 Off-Road package.
Make your drive more interesting with the Tacoma's six speakers and standard Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Comparable features are only available on the Ranger XLT and Lariat or when you add the STX Special Edition Package to the base model Ranger XL.
When you choose the 2022 Tacoma, you get more standard features and an overall fun-to-drive pickup truck.
