    Thanks munsey.
    I should have mentioned the use. Daily drive to work (6 min), main use is towing a boat that is yet to be purchased (looking like a fc620 ht - or something similar).
    Not really into serious 4wd, but interested in performance

    Better than the Colorado I had. Better trans and engine braking.

    They easily get stuck in 10 cm of mud! Had to ask for the help of a Toyota hilux to get it out...

    I'm pretty sure the Wildtrack is only a cosmetic upgrade from the standard Ranger. My Ranger has about 85,000 on it now. I like mine.
    Good around town. Its a bit big, but reverse camera helps with parallel parking.
    Can put 3 kids and Wife in it comfortably. Previous utes were more truck inside where these are now more car inside. This is comfortable and I don't get a sore back if I'm driving for a long time.
    Drives well. I think I get something around 9.0L/100km average
    Tows well. I don't tow often, but when I do I have not had any issues. 3.2L diesel eats most hills and loads.
    I've never had a break down in it. Not even a flat battery. Its been a good run so far.
    I get my ute with the job. I've had Rangers for the last 10 years.

    They are a great ute Beaker. I had one new as a company vehicle a couple of years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep, my old ranger 2013, just turned over 127ks, I've had an awesome run, joy to drive, I've put 18" ranger wheels and the wild track tray cover on it. I'd buy another. @Friwi, turn off the traction control
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Thanks guys.
    Only real reason I mentioned the wildtrack over the xlt, was the vertical height adjustment on the drivers seat, the xlt didn't have it and I want it.

    My work Ranger XLT (2013) has done 233000kms and still goes great. Had a couple of EGR valve replacements and an oil cooler replacement. Boss has a 2017 Wildtrack with all the gizmos but I still prefer my PX1 to his PX2. Great tow truck with plenty of room.

    Look at the dollars and the warranty. Tritons a bit of a shitter, but money in your pocket, lot of Tundras being sold up here
