Just wondering, where do you place the 79 series?
nothing beats TOYOTA there is a reason why people are buying it
Does anyone ever do actual fuel use. GPS distance corrected and actual fuel put in the tank? I do a lot of km's so it matters. Cheers
Toyota should not even get a look in, toyota do nothing to develop any vehicle segment, no development in safety technology or vehicle standards. Pay large amounts to media organisations to keep a really unsafe dated vehicle in front of mind of the fools thinking that it’s reliable, if you can’t even upgrade the airbox to a cartridge type and stop dust getting in should tell the fools yet it doesn’t.
The Dmax and Bt50 have the best structural design of them all with the introduction of Boron alloy in the roof structure a 107 percent increase in the strength over the last design, toyota in a roll over is appalling the roof comes down onto the seats.

The hiliux drives like a truck its rugged does what it says ! People complainig for it getting old and not for having a cinema screen built in to the infotainment system !! People who buy the hilux buys it for its capabilities ! Thats why despite for its age people still buy them!
Most of us understand and accept that the Ford Ranger is objectively, the best ute… But we are still going to buy the Hilux….
If the biggest differentiator for Ford is on-road dynamics, then what about
– Braking performance: lowest among the group
– Body Roll/Slalom/Lane change manuever: probably tie (quantitave numbers not provided)
Also ford comes with an electrical park brake, what if on a steep incline, electrical system malfunctioned. Ditto for the instrument display, a single electrical/display failure can deprive driver of all information (i understand that even modern analogue instrumentation is also electrical in the back end, still it has less point of failures).
That said, ford ranger is still an impressive vehicle.
X-terrain is currently $64,990. 4 cylinder Ford Wild Track is at least $77k. When you factor in the cost the Isuzu is the clear best value for money.
New ranger is no good in my opinion the 10 speed is all over the place. It’s just made me love my d max more
I still love isuzu
Ute's for the knobs in the world
Over seeing hilux in these tests. They have not changed in years. Yes ford have issues but have moved with the times and are giving it a good crack. How long will toyota cling on to that boring ute
Were is Mitsubishi guys?
The sweet spot Ranger in my opinion is the Sport. $2.5k extra but worth it. Add on the touring pack & V6 engine & it’s fantastic 👍👍
غرفة المازدا اجمل من الفورد بمراحل 🔥
Ford ranger is the most unreliable dual cab Ute winner as well…
Well done Ford Australia!
A credit to the Australian engineers who developed this ute. We were good at building cars for Australia.
