Revideo: 2020 Ford Ranger vs Toyota HiLux comparison review

Like their sales figures, it is honestly very hard to separate these utes. Each time one pulls ahead, the other counters in a different way. More tech, Ford. Better ergonomics, Toyota. Rear passenger comfort, Ford. Longer load area, Toyota. Cheaper to buy, HiLux. Cheaper to run, Ranger. You can play tit-for-tat in every possible way, but in our mind it comes down to one key outcome...

There are any number of ways to decide which of these two utes should be king of the Australian market, and our latest full comparison is certainly one of them. THIS, however, is another slightly less scientific but loads-more-fun way to decide.

2022 Ford Ranger Raptor to get twin turbo V6 petrol

The 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to adopt twin turbo V6 petrol power – and arrive hot on the heels of the regular Ranger line-up. While this is an artist impression of the 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor – and the real deal could look substantially different – the good news is we won't need to wait too long to see the production version...

Ford Ranger gets F-150 Raptor treatment

Why on earth didn’t Ford think of this genius idea? The call for a right-hand-drive Ford F-150 Raptor has finally been answered – sort of – thanks to a group of enthusiasts who have grafted look-a-like kits onto Ford Ranger utes. TTN Hypersport in Thailand has come up with the kits using a combination of fibreglass and polycarbonate bolt-on bodywork to transform humble Ford Ranger pick-ups into F-150 Raptor monster trucks...

2016 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

I first purchased my 2016 XLT Ranger second hand early last year. It was my second Ranger in as many years, the first one being a PX1 manual, which I regretted from the day I got it. This time I was determined to do it properly; PX2 in auto and modify it to my liking. Compared to the PX1, the PX2 is largely the same...

2019 Ford Ranger Wildtrak 2.0 (4x4) Review

I’d been scrolling through CarAdvice for some time leading up to buying my WildTrak in the hope of reading an owners review on the new PX3 WildTrak before pulling the pin. After realising no one had written one up yet I thought I’d pen my own review with my initial impressions of the WildTrak for the short time I have owned it...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT 3.2 (4x4) review

When looking for a replacement for my previous ute a little more than a year ago, I was set on getting the safest one available at that stage. The Ford Ranger was top of the pile, and therefore the search ended with a slightly used 2017 3.2 XLT 4x4 auto. My first auto, and it might be my last for a while. More on that later...
