Gladiator barely tows more than the Ranger, but you have to get the least GVW rated sport and the 4:10 gear. Imagine the mileage isn’t even 15mpg with that combo.
GM Canyon/Colorado platforms need a $4k diesel and the required $2k transmission to out tow the Ranger.

I know little about towing, and even less about EV's. But, wouldn't towing, or carrying heavy loads decrease the range of these trucks greatly? If so, I can't see many being used on work sites unless it's used by a manager to move from site to site. And even then where would one find a charger? I'm quite confused.

You are correct. Same principle as with an ICE vehicle the more weight you add/pull the less mpg you're going to get. The good thing though is these can be plugged in on most job sites to recharge so that is a bonus there.

Wait, that article reads like the 2019 and 2020 Rangers were only rated for 7,000lbs with the tow package? What changed on the 2021 to up it to 7,500lbs?

Always been 7500 with the tow package.

Nothing changed.

Just poor research by the writer.

And Wow that Bolinger is ugly, followed closely by the Rivian.

That is what I was thinking, that it has been 7,500 since 2019.

Christ modern websites are terrible. "Let's make the articles only 1/4 of the screen and make the reader click right for every paragraph."
ugh. it's a "gallery" type page, designed specifically to increase clicks and interaction, which pushes the website higher on search results.

not clicking on it.

not going to reward a website that's decided to pay its marketing staff more than its content creators.

Same here, I refuse to give them the clicks. Depending on what I post I'll use archiving websites so I don't drive traffic.

That thing looks like it came right out of a front window display at the local LEGO store. :eek:
They must have found a drawing of the truck I drew when I was in kindergarten. Remarkable how alike they both look!
