What, then, is the best pickup truck in the land? Is it the Ford Ranger, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, the Mitsubishi L200, the Toyota Hilux, or the Volkswagen Amarok? Or, perhaps, our extra-special wildcard entry? Subscribe now: smarturl.it/autocar

We've got all of the major contenders together in one disused quarry for one massive off-road megatest, to discern which of the above double-cab pickups - all four-wheel drive, all rugged, and all capable of carrying more than one tonne in their load bays - is the fairest of them all.

And once we've done that, we'll line it up against the biggest, baddest pickup truck we've yet driven: a Unimog U218 'implement carrier', ten tonnes and £100,000 worth of badass pickupery.

      @Sheriff's office One advantage the Merc has is they do the X350 model with a 3.0L V6 while the Navara D23 series still only has 4 cylinder options - the V6 is so much a better option engine wise hence I've stuck with my last generation Outlaw for now.

      Amarok still the best if you are spending a lot of time on the road, Hilux the best if you actually need a pickup for heavy duty stuff. Navara and hence the Merc are very second best on the road the only reason to choose the Navara is if like me you do say 60% or so road driving and 40% light to moderate pickup duty but don't use it enough to justify Amarok money (I own a Navara Outlaw V6) - use the Navara/Merc/Renault for actual heavy duty and it will break. Which puts the Merc in a kind of odd place unless you specifically like them as a brand as you are better off saving some money and going for the Navara. Conversely I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time on the road in the likes of the Hilux and L200. Where the Ford Ranger Wildtrak excels is its towing capabilities otherwise it is in a bit of and odd place as it is too nice to use for real off-road/heavy duty but behind the Amarok and in many respects the Navara for using on the road.

      This is what happens when people who don't know the tools do the test.
      In L200 4H, no terrain is entered. In this mode the front to rear ratio is 40/60.
      In the L200 4H mode, even dry asphalt can rotate a full turn. (Audi quatro style)

      L200 4HLC is entered into the field. The front to rear ratio is 50/50.
      L200 4LLC is low mode of rock and deep mud.

      In other words, there is no 40/60 compared to the vehicle in this position if you put the vehicle in the field is the result.

      Hilux 4H mode = L200 4HLC.
      The clever friend who did the test could have applied the correct testing method if he had mixed some catalogs.

      It can never be used in dry air and at high speeds in 40/60 4x4 mode since Hilux does not have a mid-shift mode with shift
      It is clearly stated in the user manual.

      L200 / 4H mode = No Hilux equivalent.
      L200 / 4HLC mode = Hilux 4H mode.
      L200 / 4LLC mode = Hilux 4LC mode.
