While I'm not disagreeing an F150 better choice for towing if comparing new, you'd probably be surprised everythings grown. The new ranger is 85.8" wide excluding mirrors, thats wider than your F150 and my 2013 f150 at around 79", sounds like weighs mid 4k lbs what's your's around 5k? Power wise your 5.4 is 260hp/350tq vs Ranger's 270/310 and if it's like the 3.5 eco it pulls from low and across rpm's. It's a body on frame truck and some newer tech probably helps along the way. You might end up embarassed by it in a tow off Sure not as bad, but the setup on 13 eco f150's is pretty annoying. Built in funnels to catch the oil from the filter. Actually 2, one if it's flat (on lift) and one if it's on ramps/stands (tilted back). Works ok except it's guaranteed to continue dripping. Here's a great idea, let's build in a feature to make oil drips in driveways/garages!
