Simmer down, there. Here're the specs for the 1998 F150 (also from Edmunds): https://www.edmunds.com/ford/f-150/1998/features-specs/Ah, good clarification. So you moved the goal post after the fact.
Now, here's a thought... If a fact seems absolutely and utterly ludicrous (like the idea that the new Ranger is six whole inches wider than a full size truck), verify it.
Here's another link showing the width for the 2019 Ranger both with and without mirrors.

And it leads to a simple conclusion - the data you posted earlier was incorrectly labelled as not including mirrors.
Note: Width WITHOUT mirrors is 79.5 inches. So, the 2019 Ranger is wider with mirrors than the 1998 F150 is without. However, the Ranger is narrower than the F150 when both are measured without mirrors.
