Quote from the summary conclusion

`And so Fords all round practical Ranger with over 3000lbs towing weight, good load carrying capacity and a refined on road performance takes the spoils. Fuel economy isn`t the best, but as a overall package it just has to pip its rivals`

I love my Ranger, but I'm kinda surprised it topped the Hilux...

I drove a 2008 hilux last week that I'm listing on ebay for my brother, the ride was a bit nicer and more space in the cab but overall it didn't impress me too much and the 2.5 seemed a bit small for a mid size pick up.

I guess its kind of the 'grass is greener on the other side' thing.

I'd love to take a trip to Europe sometime and try one out.

Good point, the only minor complaint really they had was the `lack of the Rangers styling`
