Note, we’re alone comparing the beyond gasoline engines for these trucks. The acumen for this is that, while the Jeep Gladiator will action a agent V6 in 2020, it’s not accessible yet, and the Ford Ranger alone offers a turbocharged four-cylinder in the U.S. that competes added carefully with V6-powered trucks. Finally, variations on numbers are due to agreement differences consisting of cab and bed type, as able-bodied as two- vs. four-wheel drive.
