Herald Sun - Motoring - - ROAD TEST -

FORD RANGER WILD­TRAK $61,790

Loaded with class-lead­ing safety and in­fo­tain­ment tech, drives nicely on and off road and the 3.2-litre five-cylin­der is smooth and strong. Some re­li­a­bil­ity is­sues.

MAZDA BT-50 GT $51,950

A twin un­der the skin with Ranger but without its top shelf safety and in­fo­tain­ment spec, hence the circa $10K dis­count. Firmer sus­pen­sion tun­ing.

TOY­OTA HILUX SR5 $56,390

Bulletproof, with bank­able re­sale val­ues. Hard ride, gets a bit ner­vous in the rough and the 2.8 is out­gunned in this com­pany. Seven airbags but short on other safety tech.
