Competitive Sales Comparison

The second quarter of 2019 marked the second quarter of Ford Ranger sales in the United States market. During that time frame, sales of the midsize pickup truck totaled 20,880 units, which is more than double the amount of Ranger sales (9,421 units) sold in Q1. The figure is roughly one-third of Toyota Tacoma sales, two-thirds of Chevy Colorado sales yet about 2,000 units higher than Nissan Frontier deliveries, 8,000 units more than GMC Canyon sales, and roughly 13,000 units higher than Jeep Gladiator sales. In other words, the Ranger is gaining momentum as it moves squarely into third place in its competitive set.

The Tacoma remained America’s best-selling midsize pickup truck during the quarter, followed by the Chevy Colorado in second, and the Ranger in third. The Nissan Frontier came in fourth, the GMC Canyon was fifth, and the Jeep Gladiator was last in sixth.

The Ford Authority Take

It’s great to see Ford gain solid footing in the expanding mid-size pickup truck segment. The timing is ripe for the Ranger’s arrival considering current market trends, which strongly favor crossovers, SUVs, and trucks over sedans – which Ford has rapidly discontinued. In fact, Ford truck sales increased 8 percent during the second quarter.

We expect Ford Ranger sales volume to grow in the coming quarters as interest in the model increases, and availability reaches optimal levels at the retail/dealer level. The ongoing increase in Ranger sales volume, however, is contingent on Ford being able to meet demand by producing enough units at its Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.

    A few days ago, I went back to my dealer for my 1st oil change on my ’18 Fx4 crew.
    On display in their showroom, was a new Ranger Fx4, with huge tires and offroad package.
    WOW. Beautiful and tons of tech on it. Room, not so much, esp backseat and storage.
    But with all it had, it was one of few actually worth it’s $40,000 msrp. I think sales numbers
    are skewed due to higher prices for Ford models. jmo.

    Here in Australia the Ranger is the biggest selling 4 wheel drive utility but overall sales including the 2 wheel drive models it trails the Toyota Hilux. Most Ranger sales are the higher priced models. It is far and away Fords best selling model here. If it wasnt available I doubt Ford would still be selling vehicles in Australia.

  3. Materialman

    Toyota has sold 121,000 Tacoma’s YTD and Ford has sold 30,000 Rangers. I’d hardly call that good news.

    1. Alex Luft

      You do realize that availability was severely limited for a good chunk of that YTD period, right? The Ranger was only available in sufficient quantities during the second and third quarters of the year… more so the third quarter.

  4. David

    Those numbers could easily double if the Ranger was less expensive. In my area the price is the most prohibitive reason the sales are slow. I have only seen one on the road here.

    1. Tom

      Same here I have seen 5 total on the road this year. Meanwhile Tacomas are everywhere and the long in tooth Frontier is surprisingly seen often as well(probably due to aggressive pricing) I wanted to like this ranger. I had two of the old version. At the end of the day for the kind of money I was having to spend I went with the reliability and resale value of toyota.


    I would never mentioned 3 rd place, a truck that should of been out 5-6 years ago. How did the “old” Ranger sale— GREAT !

  6. Joe Zirbel

    I was excited and looking forward to the new Ranger! What a let down, I have a 2004 sport trac I wanted to replace with a ner Ranger, but no more. Seats are very uncomfortable and when you raise them up they go forward, why when your tall you want them to go back. Then their is no traction lock rear axle only the damn electronic locker, I want the limited slip.
    Well anyway going to look in to putting the 3.3 ecoboost into my sport trac.
