well the example1 is meant for those who own only 1car and they use it primarily as a family car/personal transport and occasionally requires them to carry objects taller and bulkier than SUV's and minivans could possibly carry so it has to be a pickup, a comfortable one.The Ranger is fast yes it really is but onroad handling?The Strada beats it due to the fact I've metioned above.
correct is triggerman in terms of performance if you compare it to other pickups strada is at the bottom,
strada lacks handling and power if you compare it to other pickups tama ba sir beeboy?
top seller talaga strada mura kasi, because its really loaded - 3.2 gls sports. as for the 2.5 gls, glx and gl hindi na good buy for me coz walang abs
lahat ng pick up maganda except for the hilux because of the safety issue - bagsak daw sa moose test (sayang)
safety is very important
actually the strada is one of the most powerful in its class,the problem is that the power delivery is sedate compared to the navara and ranger.The handling is mixed bag because the steering system is onroad bias that is why it is the best onroad handling pick-up in the RP market but quite poor off it.The performance of the vehicle depends on the needs of its owner,example what if you seldomly need to haul cargos while you need to transport your family very frequently?of course the strada is the best in this conditions but if you do a lot of heavy hauling and traverse poor roads to the factory very often then the strada will have it hard time compared to its rivals especially to the hilux and ranger/bt50.
well if you need to transport your family frequently? get a SUV instead.
strada is the best on road not because of its handling but bec of its suspension (rides like a car).....on the tarmac the trekker is far better in terms of handling and power compared even to the 3.2 gls sports. what the heck i still want one!
still not convinced?read Beeboy's comparo on truckwars featuring the ranger,hilux and strada
its a tie between ranger and hilux since they were true to the roots hardcore pickups(hauling/family) while the strada loss due to the fact that it is a niche(lifestyle/family)so not the definitive pickup truck if one looks for a beast of burden
i'm not saying that the strada is a poor pick up
but it's true that it's more of a pick-up truck wanna be
but if you compare it's way down the bottom
the ranger has the best handling on road of all the pick up trucks. that's according to experts review, an example is the c magazine, they compare head to head 5 pick up trucks...
strada has the most comfortable ride doesn't mean it has better handling
