Hilux vs Ranger vs Steed: Ultimate Ride Comfort Test
In the second video of our 3-way Bakkie comparison, we again lined up the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, Toyota Hilux Legend 45 and GWM Steed6 but this time our aim was not to find out fast they were, but how comfortable. Watch our offroad bakkie drag race here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2qhGLUnnMU No, this time we wanted to work out which bakkie offered the most refined ride. And so the brains trust at Cars.co.za got together and came up with a very scientific test. It involved sourcing a silly amount of 20 litre paint drums, quite a few barrels of water and a bumpy road away from the city, near a farm. Here we would determine the ultimate champion of comfort, with Dave Taylor in the Wildtrak, myself Ciro in the Hilux and Ashley Oldfield in the Steed6. Before the test, we all agreed that the Ranger felt the most comfortable on tarmac, but would it emerge victorious, out here on the gravel which many South Africans tackle every day? You’ll have to sit through three minutes of witty banter to find out.

River crossing vs the All-New Ranger
A new engine design combined with more power gives the All-New Ranger an unbeaten water wading of 800mm. So you can go places other vehicles can't. A steep riverbank entry put the higher positioning of Ranger's key engine components to the test before it even got to the deepest part of the river
