All subjective off course but we have had a Ford Ranger Wildtrak 3.2 for 2 years now and it literally is the best vehicle I have had since my Supra Twin Turbo back in late 90s! I don't know what problems people have had with Ford service but they have been excellent to us and we've not had a single rattle with the Ranger after 51k kms. Chevrolet Captiva however.... God, that was the shittest car and service I've ever had. We got rid after 3 years.

Am thinking of getting the Everest 3.2 as an extra family car... It looks amazing and the gadgets inside I don't see them have it on the new fortuner. Does anyone own an everest 3.2? Is it any good?

Yes, I do ... mine is the MY15. The early ones had three problems ... rear crankshaft oil seal, Crankshaft sensor and Exhaust O2  probe. All from external suppliers. I have had the first two replaced. Supplier problems have now been sorted. So MY16 should be no problem ....

 

The ride I'm impressed with ... smooth ... has been described as 'boat like'. Economy is not that good ... you can see what I have been getting at www.fuelly.com ...same handle. But does it matter all that much ... 19K Kms in 18 months

 

Just love the engine sound when accelerating and it's reasonably quick. We always have the 3rd row seats down so it will hold quite a lot of luggage/golf clubs etc.

 

No GPS and expensive to get google maps onto the screen is a bit of a drawback.     

 

Our Ford Service Dealer ... not the one we purchased it from ... is okay, Labour costs I believe have recently increased to a little over 550thb/Hr. I will post the Service costs in a future topic, when  get around to it.

 

Look carefully at SSP value and and also PPP if you intend to keep.

 

No I haven't taken it 'off road' other than access to some 'resorts' if you can call them that,  in Phu Tub Berg and the like.

 

Just go for it ....

I agree with JAS. I've got a 2016 3.2. I find the ride comfortable and it's quick enough for the type of vehicle it is.I found the handling to be better than the Pajero Sport or the Fortuner and I tested all of them. The only negative is the fuel economy. I had the Mazda BT 50 3.2 4WD before and the Mazda would get between 100-150 km more per tank. It's got stacks of space and it's great having a separate aircon for 2nd and 3rd row seats. I always have the 3rd row seats down which makes a huge luggage area or a place for my 2 large dogs to snooze. The permanent 4WD is useful as I live in an area with sandy roads and occasional flooding.

So how many kms do you get from a full tank? On our Ranger WT 3.2 we get about 800 km on a full tank costing about 1900 the to fill up. I think it's an 80 litre tank. How big is the tank? I heard that the 2.2 is slightly better on fuel economy but doesn't have all the gadgets like roadside assisted parking, sun roof and electronic touch screen display? There's a Australian based review on YouTube thats saying the 2.2 is better to drive around the city. Off course money no issue get the 3.2 but it's 300k more... So it's really got to be worth it!

What's the sat navigation system like? Or is it better to just use your phone? I heard that 3rd parties can upload better software to it that's not the Ford dealers... Not sure if that would invalidate the warranty.

Thanks for any more information before I go and test drive one.

I did say that with 'tongue in cheek' but seriously, I have never seen a Wildtrak with one?? (Moonroof). Only on Everest.

I presumed he was talking about the Everest at this point.

Yeah i think that one is 250k less also...Might think about that one esp of saves on fuel and I don't really need 4wd. I will still keep the Ranger.
