Toyota Hilux or Ford Ranger? This is a question that thousands of potential South African bakkie buyers grapple with. For some, it’s an easy choice, but for many, it’s a trickier decision to make. For this comparative review, we set the Hilux and Ranger loose on the Welgelegen 4x4 Farm in Stellenbosch to determine which one is the better buy...

At, we like a good ol' bakkie battle and the rivalry between the Hilux and Ranger is as fierce as they come. With monthly sales figures running into the thousands, these 2 bakkies are considered to be the most popular Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) on sale in South Africa.

The last time we put the Hilux and Ranger together for a comparative test was way back in 2016 and at the time they were both really closely matched in almost every way, including price. Now, however, things have changed and there’s more to separate these classic rivals. The Hilux range received a significant update in 2018 and the facelifted Ranger was recently introduced with a pair of 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine options as well as a new 10-speed transmission. It is, therefore, the perfect time to bring these 2 bakkie giants together for another showdown.

For this comparative test, we managed to get our hands on the Ranger 2.0 4x4 XLT (automatic) and Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Raider 4x4 (manual).

Despite the differences in transmission, this comparative review provides useful buying advice if you are considering a Ranger or Hilux double-cab bakkie; we've paid particular attention to the contenders' kerb appeal, interior execution and standard features, engine performance, ride quality and handling, off-road ability and pricing and warranty details.

Is the mid-spec Ranger XLT strong enough to trounce the high-spec Hilux Raider? Let’s find out...

In this video, Ciro De Siena heads out to the awesome Welgelegen 4x4 Trails, outside Cape Town, to give these two cars a proper going-over.
