Making its world debut in Thailand last November, the 2021 Ford Ranger now sports a refreshed look and comes with a nifty party trick that we love.On the outside, the facelifted Ranger gets a racier look thanks to a new trapezoidal front grille, black alloy wheels and a smorgasbord of black trim pieces. The highlight of this update then has to be its Power Roller Shutter (PRS).Its exactly what it sounds like. Think of it as a powerboot for a pick-up truck - instead of having to physically lift y

For a very long time, the pick-up truck market has been dominated by the Toyota Hilux and it’s no wonder. As Top Gear once proved, the mighty Hilux is very much invincible.However, while the Hilux has been the default pick-up of choice (no doubt the same could be said about the updated facelift model), that doesn’t mean its competitors have backed down.

Performance figures published by car manufacturers are a two-sided coin, as figures alone don't dictacte the vehicle's overall driving experience.Instead, factors such as the vehicle’s weight should be factored in as well, as having a high output vehicle with a heavy weight would penalize its performance. Do keep in mind that having the most powerful engine does not necessarily equate to being the most durable or reliable.Ford Ranger - The most powerful pick-up truck mone

BT-50、Ranger、Navara,这些皮卡将于明年登陆大马!

长久以来,皮卡车市场都被Toyota Hilux所统治,但这并不意外,正如《Top Gear》曾经证明过的一样,强大的Hilux几乎是坚不可摧的。不过,尽管Hilux一直是皮卡车的首选(毫无疑问,对于改款车型也是一样),但这并不代表着竞争对手们已经放弃了。明年,将会有三款新的皮卡上市,准备和Hilux分一杯羹。严格来说,它们其中只有一款全新的皮卡车,还有两款是改款车型。所以,我们先从全新的车型开始说起吧。2021 Mazda BT-50在BFM电台的采访中,Bermaz Auto的首席执行官Dato’ Francis Lee表示,全新的2021 Mazda BT-50将成为明年Mazda推出的第一款新车。新款BT-50预计将从泰国进口,于2021年第一季登陆大马。与之前长相奇特的BT-50不同,全新的BT-50有着十分优雅的“魂动”前脸设计。全新BT-50的另一个重大变化发生在它的车身之下。Mazda已经决定放弃与Ford合作,转身投向了Isuzu。因此,在CX-9一般的外观之下,其实是一辆平庸的Isuzu D-Max。这意味在2022年的新款D-M

Review: 2021 Mitsubishi Triton Athlete is the best Hilux that you want to ride in

If you think the title for this review of the Mitsubishi Triton sounds odd, that’s because you are not reading it in the context of an East Malaysian. To the other half of Malaysia, the word Hilux does not necessarily refer to a Toyota Hilux, but a noun that refers to any pick-up truck. Yes, any.Think it’s wrong? Well if you stop calling Cintan or Mamee instant noodles as Maggi, or referring to every plastic food container as Tupperware, maybe the East Malaysians might listen to you.
