Is The 2013 Ford Ranger Pick Up Truck A Good Buy? by SeaTrade(m): 9:13pm On Jun 08
Good evening.
I got a good deal today to buy a Ford ranger truck,
Single cabin ,manual transmission,air conditioned,gasoline engine,high range truck with 4×4 and a container body.
It's something very necessary for my line of work and I am tempted to buy it.Infact I love it but i don't want to make emotional decisions so I really want to be sure.
So I don't know if it is a good and reliable truck that can handle proper beating offroad as my routes are filled with damaged roads and all..
I've had an awesome experience with my Hilux but I don't know if the Ford ranger can offer me same ruggedity without breaking down all the time and burning a hole in my pocket(I have really grown to hate spending money on cars so I like to keep it at minimal levels if possible).
Please house gurus,I will appreciate your expert opinions ,
Thank you.

American is strong

The international not too sturdy for bad roads, especially the 2X4 body deforms easily and parts are expensive in Nigeria.

We have fleet of the vehicles the predecessor 03 to 11 is very strong but the 12 upwards international has a poor rating to me though our fleet is used for jungle work, those used in city are still strong and doing well

Don't start wahala here by praising Ford, Toyota Zombies will start coming for your flesh.

The Ford is new to you, so all the wrong you got used to in your Toyota is obvious now.

There is a reason those two are head to head in all markets they compete in but the Toyota's advantage has inly been in reliability.

The government policy in Nigeria(influenced by certain interest) has only given the Toyota an advantage over all other competition, so the benefit of the work truck has not been experienced in Nigeria. Farmers and tradesmen are none existence because of this missing work tool.

This is even the south African build, that is sweet, image the US or Australian version.

Go test drive a 2021 Ram 1500 or F150 and feel the difference in what the present has Nigeria is missing

Mehn you just took it off my mouth.
From stiff clutch in the hilux that makes driving synonymous to mountain hiking ,
The hilux is way slower than the ranger ,however I think the hilux has more power cos the way that thing jumps out of muddy terrain,i don't think this ranger can do it.
Then the air conditioning in the ranger beats the hilux,
However parts of the ranger is more expensive.
How can i forget?The ranger takes way less fuel than the hilux.
Well,so far i think it's been a great experience owning both cars.
Yes,the hilux is more reliable,than thing just don't die so i guess that's why it sells more than its immediate competitors.
And i love how close to each other the gears are in the ranger too,makes it almost impossible to skip gears when shifting,nice one.
I don't think I will ever buy the F150 though,looks impractical to me,Bring me a toyota land cruiser anyday grin
