The best spark plugs for Ford Ranger are the ones that best match your truck’s needs. There are a few different types of spark plugs available, and each one has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Let’s take a closer look at each type:

Copper core spark plugs: These plugs have a copper core that helps to dissipate heat quickly. They’re ideal for trucks that frequently tow or haul heavy loads, as they can handle the extra stress better than other types of plugs. However, they can also be more expensive than other options.

Platinum core spark plugs: Platinum core spark plugs have a longer lifespan than copper core plugs, making them a good option for trucks that see frequent use. They’re also less susceptible to fouling, making them a good choice for vehicles that are driven in dusty or dirty environments. However, they can be more expensive than other types of plugs.

Iridium core spark plugs: Iridium core spark plugs are the most durable type of plug available. They have a lifespan that’s up to three times longer than copper core plugs, and they’re less likely to experience fouling issues. However, they can be more expensive than other options.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to choosing the best spark plugs for your Ford Ranger. You’ll need to consider the type of driving you do, as well as the conditions in which you typically operate your truck.
