Which truck..

    Recommended Posts

    Inner redneck won’t be repressed and is demanding I buy a truck, which of the current crop is best? Needs to be as car like as poss and ideally not too slow, fuel economy and polar bears not a concern, thanks.

    Haven’t tried the Mercedes or the Fiat but of all the rest we decided to buy the L200. 

    I suggest you try as many as you can. 

    Do something for myself??!! That’s not how things work now, just look at the ‘shooting wanted’ section...

    In all seriousness I looked at a Navarro 2 years ago but the dealer was a muppet so i gave up, didn’t try others, I could do with a shortlist, there are loads now!

    Ford Ranger

    Hilux or Dmax. You do pay a premium for a Hilux but they are bomb proof and have a very good resale value. Most of the others are just the same body shell with a different badge.

    Purely as a passenger, whilst deer stalking (also known as wandering around being charged 140 for the privilidge) the hilyx seemed nice

    Have you had one?  more than enough power from the straight 6 and will go where all the others won't, with ease and comfort

    Had mine on a shoot one day and it went where a defender couldn't get and back.

    i work in the motor trade :mad: which i dont normally tell anyone as i have no interest in cars unless they go across the field with my gear in. i have had a ranger for 7 years which has been virtually faultless. two of my mates have hiluxs which seem to be bullet proof and very capable . i would steer well clear of l200 and navara. but the amorak would get my vote now.

    if you want something to waste money on get a land rover:lol:

    Hilux gets my vote, I’ve got the invincible x fully loaded and very pleasant to drive on the road too,  even long distances,  only thing I would change if it was just for shooting In would be the tyres 👍
