Only thing is the small 2.2L diesel engine is a big let down + ridiculous head and rear light switch on as indicator when door is not closed. Whether or not I will still buy the Ranger, if the SA never treated me that badly, I will consider as the Ranger is still awesome though engine is too small for the weight.
I'm more incline to wildtrak but I thing I find very funny (just for me) the front nudge guard and side mirror are black to distinguish the different between the 2.2 XLT siblings. I find the same colour as the body rather seamless and limited choice of colour for wildtrak. leaving aside side curtain air back, cruise control, 18" wheels, 6 speed transmissions and the long list of equipments/features may not found in others, on paper compare to Navara, Hilux & Triton;
a) Ranger is the longest 5,359 mm while shortest among them is Navara at 5,230 mm
Ranger's width same as Navara 1,850 mm and Triton the slimmest by 50 mm
c) Hilux is the tallest at 1,850 mm while Ranger is shorter by 2 mm
d) Ranger has longest wheelbase at 3,220 and the shortest wheelbase among them is Triton by 220 mm
e) Hilux the highest ground clearance at 292 mm and Ranger at 235 mm. Both Navara/Triton have the lowest at 205 mm
f) Navara is the widest tread at 1,570 mm and Ranger's tread front/rear is narrow 10 mm. Triton has smallest tread at 1,520/1515 fron/rear respectively
g) Ranger has the longest at 1,549 mm and shortest is Navara at 1,480 mm
h) Ranger is the widest at 1,560 and Triton slmmmest at 1,470 mm. Navara N/A
i) Ranger appeared the highest at 511 mm and Hilux (strangely) the shortest at 450 mm
In short, Ranger looks relatively large.
While I was interested on power-to-weight ratio, Navara did not have kerb weight advertised (I prefer using gross than kerb weight). Ranger's kerb weight is 2,071 kgs while gross is 3,200 kgs almost 1.2 tonnes added accessories. While Hilux's kerb weight at 1,945 kgs, the add-ons only about 800 kgs to 2,780 kgs and Triton kerb weight 1,860 kgs and gross weight 2,910 kgs. Navara gross weight at 2,780 kgs. In other words, despite wildtrak with 200 ps, she needs the horsepower to haul the much heavier gross weight. Anyway, this is a truck so may not necessary relevant when most power-to-weight ratio is done on saloon and such calculation is subjective i.e. if you have a 50 kgs of weight driver vs 200 kgs weight driver etc.
To me the 2.2 XLT indeed a let down while I presume other country has 2.5 variant introduced.
