User experience

I have already done 100000 km.

A sedan car handling with off road capabilities and good fuel economy. Truly a suitable make and model, even Hilux, Triton, Navara and Dmax cannot come close.

Summary

My job requires me to frequently access off-road terrains, steep hills, rocky paths, mud, shallow rivers, and always a few hundred kilometres across states through the highway. Somehow the journeys are enjoyable because this Ford Ranger brings out the best of both off and on the road.

Some interesting events

Generally speaking, pick up trucks have lighter weight distributed at the rear (unless fully loaded). So cornering would be quite dangerous especially during rainy days and even more so with worn tyres. I once skidded and almost flipped my truck but luckily I managed to gain control.
