In terms of sales, Toyota and Ford have been locked in a battle for the top of the charts with the Hilux and Ranger, a feat which was impressive for the Hilux given that it was essentially 10 years old.
It has finally been replaced and we gathered together the new 2016 Toyota Hilux 4x4 and facelifted 2015 Ford Ranger for a head to head review.
We took the bakkies offroad at Klipbokkop, a legendary 4x4 testing facility in the Western Cape for this comparison.
