Ford Ranger vs. Chevy S-10 vs. Toyota Tacoma vs. Dodge Dakota?
I need to get a small truck for home projects (picking up bricks, lumber, removing debris) and am looking at the models listed in the question. Also, since I live in Denver I need a V6 and 4wd to be able to handle snow and high altitude. Currently I’m leaning toward a Ranger because they seem plentiful (therefore cheaper) and pretty reliable. But the S-10 (which I believe is also a GMC Sonoma??) and Dakota look pretty good too. The Tacoma seems the most reliable and holds its value well, but is more expensive. Can you provide any help in my selection process?
