Ford ranger has a bit of issues with oil pumps, issues with aftermarket components like decks and alarms. And stuff like axles. Won't be my first choice. The Hilux is a good vehicle but I find it's unappealing. Np300 really delivers. Proper well proven engines. Gearbox ect. Your choice but my 1c

In this current day, a boat will be a better buy considering what happened to persons new hilux and new ranger in the recent floods.

Having owned a previous ranger and due to parts availability I will lean towards something different such as hilux. Few ppl I know well who bought hilux in the past just did routine service and that went until the 100k and then sold.

Got a TDS 4x2 ranger gearbox (2017)
No issues, it gets the job done however I find the 2.2 diesel turbo is a bit slow.Just my opinion.


My friend got the 2017 4x2 hilux gearbox (2017) and the thing is a brute.it runs very fast and he maintains it himself

I would advise you to pick up a used Hilux.
They don't break and you pick up a good vechicle for under showroom price

The 2019 hilux looking good. The fully loaded going for around 350k
A fully loaded ranger wildtrak costing 360k on special right now.
Ideally I would prefer the hilux but I'll test drive both and the np300 in the new year
