If you are asking for an opinion, I would buy a Ranger. It is
very good truck, that is why it is the best selling small truck
in the US. It is the same truck as the Mazda but with slightly
different styling. The Ranger lists for less when similarly
equipped and there are more Ford dealers, which should give one a
better chance to deal. Why better rating for the Mazda? Some
people assume foreign stuff is better than domestic, which in
this case proves that is a myth

I just bought my third Ford Ranger. They had $3000 in rebates

My 93 has only had the battery and tires replaced, no other
repairs in 125,000 miles. I paid it off and drove it for several
years after that, now my son will drive it for a few.
Second choice would be an S-10 if they are still, for the most
part, made in USA. Please don't buy any foreign-made or built
in Mexico vehicles, there are Americans whose jobs depend on
you buying American cars.
