      The only reason the Ranger has won every comparison is because the check successfully cleared each time.

      First that alien hover thing in the x class is for the enfotanment screen 2.At this point you’ve added the Amerok and the Nivara in the comp 3. X Class wallet in pocket keys in pocket or cup holder mobile other seat and coffee in cup holder.I personally think that the X class is better

      Should have compared the off road ability with the Nissan! it's the same car as the Merc with different badges! (That's why Mercedes no longer sell them) everyone knows it'a rebadged Nissan!!

      The ford would beat the X class on value.
      For a few thousand more you could buy a ram 1500 And that would rape it.

      But according to ford when your torque converter goes at 120000km that's common life for a torque converter 🤔
