Three pickup truck models compete fiercely to get the throne of being the best pickup truck internationally – the Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, and Ford Ranger Raptor. Those three are their respective brand's frontline off-road monster trucks as they come with impeccable strength and road power. But just like any other vehicle model, they also have the differences that make them stand out from the rest. Let us dig deeper into their powertrain attributes to see which among them is the toughest on the road.
Among these three top-of-the-line pickup trucks, Toyota Hilux comes with the biggest engine property with a 2.8-liter diesel-powered engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, Ford Ranger Raptor carries a 2.0-liter Bi-turbo engine mated to a 10—speed automatic transmission, and the Nissan Navara is powered by a 2.5-liter gasoline engine paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode.
Despite that the Toyota Hilux comes with the biggest engine specification, Ford Ranger Raptor produces more output than its competitors. It makes a maximum of 210 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 500 Nm at 1,750 rpm output. On the other hand, Nissan Navara produces 187 horsepower at 3,600 rpm and 430 Nm at 2,000 rpm, and Toyota Hilux makes 201 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 500 Nm at 1,600 rpm output.
These three pickup trucks not only have gained popularity in the automotive industry but are also remarkably distinct in their capabilities. For instance, the Nissan Navara was known for its superb riding comfort that is perfect for all occupants, especially the driver. The suspension is one of the best you can find in all vehicle models. Plus, it has zero-gravity seats that make the riding comfort the best among its competitors. In terms of torque power, Ford Ranger Raptor comes at number one. Not only that this aggressive-looking pickup truck has a slaying look on the road, but it also has the road power that you will enjoy in every off-road adventure. Hence, in terms of braking power to match the performance, Ford Ranger Raptor and Toyota Hilux come side by side. There might be some differences between them, but they are relatively unnoticeable.
