Better choice? Ford wildtrack 2.2 vs Mitsu triton 2017-2018

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Need some opinions please.

 

Looking to get new , but used truck for taking my dogs out. 2017-2018 model.

 

i have narrowed it down to Ford ranger wild track and/or Mitsubishi Triton 

 

both 4 door, both auto .

 

from what I gathered mitsu comes with more features for roughly same price , but ford is a smoother ride.

 

all people who own ford that I know , all love it, but all bought one brand new and all

under 3 years old .

 

many others mention ford after 3-5 years has many problems .

 

so very confused. Please express some opinions 

 

price wise, ford 2017 around 700000

mitsu 2018 around the same price . 

 

Have condsidered XLT model but it lacks reverse camera and few other bits as wildtrack but considerably cheaper

I bought a 2 door MT wildtrack in about 2012.

Never rated it, very heavy - crap brakes.

I only needed a pick up for a couple years while building / moving etc.

Sold it as soon as I could for about 1/2 price 2 years old with about 40k kms on it.

So in other words you would not recommend it?😄

 

from some light reading , ranger has improved drastically in the past 2-3 years , some claim it’s now 3rd most popular truck

I can’t comment on the latest model.

 

Very big vehicle for city driving / parking as well.

 

I bought an old NV for walking the mutts, much lower and easier to get them in and out of, also much cheaper.

Initially it was my thought as well to get an old car and NV was the choice , but it still goes for 100000 baht and it’s a 20 year old car, also I have 9 and   6 of them weighing close to 45 kg,

Had a Wildtrak for just 2 years now; great vehicle, comfortable, & yesterday had to use the brakes hard, as someone pulled out in front of me. Stopped quickly with no drama.

(quite unusual here :laugh:)

 

Mitzi, mate's got one, very uncomfortable on Issan back roads, & I don't think it has any 'presence'.

I hardly ever drive, this is only for dog walking, mitsu does appear less impressive but what attracting me is for the same price as ford get more features, even little things like push start, blind spot ,

I think you want a Ford. 😄

Who are the others, people who don't have a Ford.?

Mitsubishi Triton may have troubles too.

They have there differences and if it were me I would drive both to see which one I liked, not ask here.

AFAIK the Triton has a pretty good track record, can Ford say the same? Owned my Triton for over 4 years without one fault of any kind.

The wild track is pretty high to be getting 45kg dogs in and out of unless they’re agile enough to jump.

Mine were not ( about the same weight ) I had concrete steps made to the height of the tail gate for them get in and out.

I believe the ranger comes in a ‘ low rider ‘ style?

Not to hijack the thread but I am curious to hear people's opinion on the Navara. From reviews seems to be quiet comfortable to drive (more car like) due to its very different suspension set up, but just no good under a heavy load (apparently have fixed that a bit).

If only taking 350 odd kgs (guessing as I don't know weight of all your dogs), then shouldn't be heavy enough to bring up the problems the Navara was criticised for. In theory a comfortable ride on crappy roads? Probably a lower price as well.

You are right I like ford. Others for example is my driver, when I asked him he said his friend has one and always fixing something . 

 

I owned 2 mitsu’s before and never any issues, I have never owned ford before

Have also looked at that and specs are great and cheaper than ford and mitsu. From my research though really bad at holding value and hard to sell.
