      Such ridiculous expensive prices. There's no value for money. All cars are made the same nowadays, they are made like washing machines, so why so expensive?

      Well this showed us that you can throw the Mercedes in the bin, and choose between the Ranger or the Hilux. Ranger for all round comfort and performance, or the Hilux for off road capability and long term reliability.

      Great review and you got it spot on, Hilux is still flying on past glory which is rapidly fading and as for the Merc well just a lot of cheeky giggles.

      A quantum mapping on a ranger takes it up to 230 bhp and 560 ntq gives it a real punch and helps loads with fuel efficiency

      Yeah but tbh their fuel consumption is not really justified by their performance

      Yeah they use more fuel, but the capability blows these out of the water. +Pin Point

      I don't think it is fair to compare a Nissan with two more upmarket vehicles.

      At the end of the competition everyone will decide which side they are on. IMHO, whether or not the Hilux is better than Ford, there is no way I can be compelled to put Toyota to shame. It remains great and performs its best.

      Hilux had the best reputation. Little bit old school and stable for every part.

      Ranger is like a young grown up man. Stronger and looks better. Bet we will see how it will perform in next decades.

      X class is just a toy for someone doesn’t know anything about UTE. They not buying for a UTE. They mostly want a Mercedes-Benz.
