I've been putting the show on via netflix lately thanks to the comic (holy shit does this show love its puns) as well as wiki'ing and I think these are the top ten. As far as what order, I doubt there's a real way to tell for some absent direct confrontation, so these are listed in no particular manner:
Gold Ranger (Zeo) - superspeed "gold rush" and shield granting greater durability.
White Ranger (DT) - superspeed and his quill-dagger could draw and create light constructs. Physically the most dominating ranger on a season of powerful rangers, though others had greater energy powers.
Black Ranger (DT) - Another Tommy Oliver variation, this one had control over the elements, could summon tidal waves, and had large energy attacks. He took out a monster that gave the rest of the team combined (including White DT) a beating single-handedly with an energy orb.
Omega Ranger (SPD) - superspeed to a greater degree than previously seen, various powers granted by revving his Omega morpher, stronger physically than most rangers.
Solaris Knight - Magic powers and genie-like abilities.
Green Samurai (NS) - greater durability in shield mode, extra speed and power in "super samurai" mode with the samurai orb being an item of great power.
Shadow Ranger (SPD) - One of the most skilled rangers with powers well above the SPD rangers. Got his 100 insignia by taking down 100 monsters by himself.
White Ranger (original) - Intro scene explicitly says he's more powerful than the Green Ranger, which was already pretty high up. Took on monsters by himself and fought Lord Zedd head on.
Red Ranger (DT) - He's like a DBZ character with all his forms. He has unmorphed superpowers (superspeed), his red rangers powers, a "super mode" which boosts his stats kaio-ken style, a battlizer mode with stretchy Mr. Fantastic-like powers, and Triassic mode which lets him take enemies to his own dimension he controls.
Silver Ranger (Megaforce) - Didn't watch any of this, but he can call upon the powers of all past "special" rangers, so yeah.
It's worth noting that red rangers usually get to be the hero, however, and though most sixth/extra rangers are more powerful than their Red counterparts they usually get taken out via plot so Red can save the day. The only real exception to this is the first white ranger (Tommy), who was also the leader and had two stints as a red ranger in his own right. Tommy could be his own team with his various incarnations (Green, White, Redx2, Black).
