And we’re back! Here’s a brand new episode of Driven Web Series 2015, this time powered by Petronas Dynamic Diesel. As promised, we’re looking at Malaysia’s rejuvenated pick-up truck market.
Present are three of the latest and greatest trucks in the market: the all-new Nissan Navara, the facelifted Ford Ranger and the second-generation Mitsubishi Triton – all represented here in range-topping forms. So which one should you put your hard-earned money on?
Newest here is the Nissan NP300 Navara, which will be officially launched very soon. The top-spec VL here has an estimated price tag of RM125,000 with insurance (final prices will be announced tomorrow), and comes with a 190 PS/450 Nm 2.5 litre turbodiesel engine mated to a seven-speed auto.
Just given a facelift a few months ago, we’ve included the Ford Ranger 3.2 Wildtrak, with its class-leading 200 PS/470 Nm five-cylinder engine. It also asks for a lot, RM132,188 without insurance. The third contender is the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure, relatively cheap here at RM110,218 without insurance.
