Ford Ranger FX4 vs Nissan Navara- Head to Head

Just watched this video that pits the T6 Ranger against the Nissan Navara. They did a couple of different head to head tests, such as on road comfort while carrying a load, the interior finish and the different features found in each.

Feels like they didn't test both pickups to their fullest capabilities. Should have put them under max load and had 5 people seated inside the cab because that over-sized water bucket isn't enough.
They would have found the Navara sagging horribly with a full load compared to the Ranger.

It looks like that's only part one of the head to head series, and I was able to find the second. I agree that they could have looked at some more practical areas of comparison. But it looks like you're early assumptions we're right and the Ranger was deemed to be the winner of the head to head. Might check out their compare tool on their website.

The Navara is fine to get the job done, just not the most refined option out there, albeit a bit bumpy in the process. Styling could use some improvements too. Overall, Ford's offering is just the hands down winner in the styling department and it has a much better ride quality even when you load it up.

Well Nissan has only been making the Navara since 1997, so you have to admit they've made some significant progress in such a short period of time. The first generation Ranger first released in 1983, so Ford should be well ahead of its competitors.

Nissan does have a bunch of more powerful trims of the Navara in the pipeline, so we'll see if any of them can actually stand as a competitor to the Raptor. With how lackluster the powertrain is, that shouldn't be too difficult for them to deliver on.

The fact that the current Frontier/Narava is due for an update and that Mercedes has already adopted the platform for the X-Class, i'm curious what Nissan has in store for the next generation.

Reviews have started coming out for the new X-Class and its being critiqued for not living up to expectations typically seen from a Mercedes Benz product. It does not have the fit and finish one would expect, and this is made worse by the fact its considerably more expensive than other alternatives.

Most publications have suggested waiting for the V6 model X Class, if you have interest in the truck. But it does seem like an awful lot to spend on a vehicle that isn't coming with the typical MB trimmings.
