Buy a Ranger instead of Tacoma?

I honestly think the only reason they released it here is because they already had it in other countries so why not? It'll be more popular everywhere else because it won't have to compete with the F-150. Here? It'll be lost in all the other offerings on the Ford lot.
I think you're right, they put a ton of effort in the maverick and the F150 gets updated every two to three years max and we just get the leftovers for the Ranger.
