From The Experts

Nissan NP300 Navara

Tough exterior looks

Reliable mechanicals 


Toyota Hilux

Toyota has always been known for its legendary reliability, and the Hilux has been the pioneer on that front. The Toyota Hilux has proven its unshakable prowess time and again, and the version which is available in the Philippines right now features the same mettle. The Hilux offers great levels of build quality and fit and finish, despite being a utilitarian vehicle, which is quite impressive.

Being a pickup truck, the Toyota Hilux has a very impressive cabin layout, which is rich in comfort and convenience features as well. The Toyota Hilux features quite a good number of new age features like a touch screen infotainment system, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, automatic climate control and so on. This gives the Toyota Hilux a feel-good factor which people seldom expect from a pickup truck

Pickup trucks need to have a torquey engine to make it suitable for driveability in rough conditions, and the Toyota Hilux’s powertrain pass this test with flying colours. The Hilux’s 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine pumps out 174PS of power output and 450Nm of torque rating, which is powerful enough for a vehicle of this size.

Ford Ranger

The pickup trucks from Ford have always been known for their butch and muscular road presence, and the Ranger follows the tradition pretty well. The Ranger comes with the typical old school American muscle, with blocky design for the pickup truck appealing to all those who want their vehicle to look intimidating and rough and tough.

Pickup trucks usually skip out on a number of modern-day gadgetries and feature usually seen on expensive and highly priced SUVs. However, that’s not the case with the Ford Ranger. This pickup truck from Ford has been equipped with a number of features which are already present in its SUV counterpart, the Ford Everest. Things like projector headlamps with daytime running LEDs, a modern touch screen infotainment system, cruise control, automatic climate control, and a semi-digital instrument console are some features which give the Ford Ranger a feel good and premium factor.

The engines which mark their presence under the hood of the Ford Ranger might not sound large or powerful on paper. However, on the tarmac, the power and torque output of these same engines make the Ford Ranger the most powerful pickup truck in its category.

Lack of features

Stiff ride quality 


Toyota Hilux

The version of Toyota Hilux which is available in the Philippines right now is basically the previous generation one, which lacks the road presence in terms of modernity. It misses out on a number of eye-catching features which are fastly making their presence in the similarly priced pickup trucks from other manufacturers.

The Toyota Hilux’s engine performs excellently when it comes to outright power delivery, but the engine feels crude when it comes to refinement and fuel efficiency. The Hilux scores a bit low in both these aspects.

Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger looks butch and intimidating thanks to its fairly large dimensions. However, these very dimensions make the Ford Ranger a bit cumbersome to drive in tight traffic conditions. The high turning radius and high seating posture might not be easy to handle always.

The Ford Ranger has most of the comfort and convenience features packed in the top-sped Wildtrak variant only, while the lower spec variants feel below par when it comes to availability of features and equipment.
