In general, a body-on-frame design will help the truck to haul and tow more weight. Moreover, an old fashioned frame-based design allows the weight to be distributed a little better, and gives much higher tow ratings (up to 7,700 lbs).

Many car experts supposed that Ford remains the current platform to save the production costs. The company also strengthened: “Ranger is for truck buyers who want an affordable, functional, rugged, and maneuverable pickup that’s Built Ford Tough."
