Ranger or Hilux

Postby vat_hilux » May 26th, 2020, 10:25 am

Which do I choose purchasing a 4x4 . Are there any issues with the new ford ranger? Recently sold my 2012 hilux after 8 faithful years and 250k km with no issues. Thinking of purchasing the ranger now but not sure if I will get the same service from it. Any suggestions?

Toyota always better than Ford Ford has looks maybe some added features but it could never beat back a HILUX, and the Ford does have issues with the head an block

I heard about minor electrical issues with the first gen heavy t rangers. The 3.2l ranger oil sump cannot be drained for longer than 10 minutes or the oil pump will lose prime and the engine will eat itself to death when you try to run it after.
