It’s a vehicle that outshines its counterparts with an impressive display of force – something our loyal customers in New Jersey can’t get enough of, especially when comparing it to the Nissan Frontier.

With a lean build that punches above its weight class, this engine ensures those behind the wheel enjoy thrills alongside smart fuel economy—a true testament to modern engineering driving forward right here at Celebrity Ford of Toms River.

Better acceleration

While the smaller engine with more horsepower already sets the stage for robust performance, it’s the accelerationwhere the 2024 Ford Ranger truly shines against its rival, the Nissan Frontier.

The moment you hit the gas pedal in a Ranger, whether it’s an XLT or LARIAT trim, you’ll feel that rush of energy as this truck leaps ahead with ease.
