Toyota HiLux: Will off-road suspension make it ride better?

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Mar 2019

Both would be improved, but I wouldn’t necessarily think they would be the same. Talk to an off-road suspension specialist for a more definitive opinion.

What car should I buy for $70,000?

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Nov 2018

You’ve pretty much covered the field there, so it should come down to what you want from your car. Do you want comfort, safety, fuel efficiency, offroad capability, cabin space? If you are mostly driving on the highway, then a diesel SUV is probably the best bet. I would rule out a dual-cab ute because of comfort, unless you need the flexibility a ute gives you. I would rule out a hybrid, they’re not at their most efficient on the highway; they’re better suited to town use. Based on your annual mileage I wouldn’t keep the car any more than 3-4 years, that way you’ll have a decent resale value when you get out of it.

Is the Toyota HiLux or Nissan Navara a better work vehicle?

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Nov 2018

I would rank the Hilux marginally better than the Navara, but there’s little to separate them. Both are similar for safety, rated at 4 stars they have the most essential safety gear in terms of airbags and ABS braking, the Hilux gets the nod on reliability, running costs are dependent on which engine you chose, and I would suggest you don’t buy a V6 petrol Hilux as they are thirsty, but the Toyota has capped-price servicing which makes it attractive.

What ute should I buy?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Oct 2018

Petrol is really the best in your situations diesels are not at the their best in stop-start driving. I wouldn’t suggest a Great Wall; I feel they are still to earn their stripes in this country. Go for a 2.7-litre petrol Toyota HiLux.

When is the new Ford Ranger coming out?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Mar 2018

Ford updated the Ranger with an update for the 2018 model year, and this isn't just because the current-generation PX model (otherwise known as the "T6") has been around for seven years. The Ranger nameplate is heading back to the US after a seven year hiatus, with American-built examples to roll out of Michigan from mid-2018 as a 2019 model year. Aussie customers will be able to get their hands on the updated 2018 model from mid-year, including the all-new Ranger Raptor! The 2018 changes will be key in tackling fresh rivals like the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, plus existing foes like the Toyota HiLux and the Mazda BT-50.
