    I bought an Amarok after testing all the utes available at the time (2015)
    As I enjoy heading offroad but only find myself hitting dirt maybe once a month, as a daily driver it was streets above the rest. No vibration through the pedal set. Low engine wind and engine noise, a better feeling and more compsosed ride, had me sold. A mate has a nav and swears by the engine, but he also swears by carlton draft, so..

  • Dietrich Beck

    Hey and regards from Germany,
    after I watched your video, I was quite astonished about its result.
    Although I am German, the Amarok would be the latest car I would buy. I am totally done with the Volkswagen Group. All this still ongoing cheating really brought me to a point, saying I am totally fed up with that topic. Up to the hilt.
    Since 31 years (1989, January) I am an Audi driver and had several different Audis. Still owning an A6 and Q5. And my next cars won’t be from any of the Volkswagen Group, Mercedes or BMW. Those brands make Germans living in Germany pay a sack full of money and the cars are worth nothing if it comes to endure. That is so sad. But these brand act as if they are the best in the world, but that is history. This is a pain to me.
    I was surprised that the Ranger in your country is the most expensive truck. I already have been at a Ford dealership here in Germany and the Wildtrak with all extras you can get was about 58 000€. But then, a second later, when we were talking about the discount, I was told, that the car would cost me only 42 000€. It is a reduction given by Ford to everybody here in Germany.
    How are experiences regarding that in your country?
    Thanks for a great test
    Dietrich and regards from my channel

    Hi Shaun great article. I own a 2015 DMax really like it capability. I spent some $$$s on mt little Truck to make it awesome.I point it just dose it. The only things i need to do is a full break up grade, Roof Console, a fully setup camping canopy with solar and lithium batteries . Then she is complete.
    I bought the Isuzu for it reliability, towing capabilities and now it's bullet proof.

  • You Tube

    Isuzu is the real deal, no gimmicks just pure reliability. In the transport industry they are the number 1 selling truck for over 25 years straight not because they are cheapest, but because they are the most reliable ! People are fools for believing 4wd shows that are sponsored by other brands. Isuzu and Toyota have no rivals in reliability! Who cares about useless comfort features if you don't have reliability. I guess the only benefit to creature comforts is that you will sit in comfort while you wait for a isuzu tow truck to come and save you🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Love my new Triton watching youtube reviews such as this was what helped me make my decision and choice especially being my first dual cab 4x4 I wanted something good value for money for camping / family car would be cool to see a triton on the track of a 4wd action episode just to see how they go properly offroad.

  • Alex Koch
    Alex Koch 15 days ago

    My favourite Ute is the Ford Ranger. Here in south Australia there isn’t too many extreme 4wd tracks around but the ranger makes a great farm up which is what we use it for. It handles great on their road as well. The Dmax would come in second as we also have one that has not given us any trouble. Both great Utes however to me the ranger takes the cake

    Its odd that the Navara in Australia has the twin turbo 2.3l instead of the single turbo 2.5l engine in my country. It has the same power (190hp/140kw and 450nm) but starts at a lower rev, better response, and has a bigger power band.

    Really??? The alternator on the Amarok sits down low and the wheels use Bolts and not studs and that makes it less bush worthy??? Did the alternator fail??? I have had my Amarok since 2011 and the alternator is still working. I've also never had issues changing the wheels even though I had to line-up the wheels using the bolts. Is it easier using studs ... sure it is. Does bolts make it less bush worthy ... I don't think so. You lost all credibility on the second scoring!
