2020 Ford Ranger

250 horsepower | 440 lb-ft of torque | $43,075 | USN Overall Score: 9.1/10

The Ford Ranger comes with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. While other small pickups offer a base four-cylinder engine and an available V6, this is the only engine on the Ranger. Thanks to turbocharging, this unit makes 270 horsepower and a rather impressive 310 pound-feet of torque. This engine routes power through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

This combination of stout engine and 10-speed auto allow the Ranger to have solid towing and hauling figures when properly equipped. The Ranger also benefits from the helpful SYNC 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
