hi all, I want to get a pick-up for city drive. not going to carry loads. i just prefer high-rise car but only budget around RM100k. but after reading here and there, most people say nissan navara provides the best passenger comfort because it uses coil spring. triton is also using coil spring and now have merdeka+gst discount up to rm15k. quite attractive to me. thinking of getting the triton vgt at premium edition. i am sitting my baby car seat at the back. don't want him to jump till neck break if the back is bumpy. Mitsubishi triton won carsifu award best pick-up and best diesel engine. why everybody say it is not good compared to ford ranger or navara, or even hilux? for suv, hrv is pretty but many comments say h brand service sux and got a lot of problem. or wait for proton geely suv? car expert here please advice. tax holiday ending soon. dilemma.

not for carrying loads, for cty drive?

don't. just dont

the ride, even the softest one (navara np200) is bumpy as hell compared to any MPV

the ride will only get better with heavy loads (200 - 400kg) at the back

u don't have storage space unless you want to put your stroller & groceries at the back exposed to sun and rain

in short, unless you really need to carry big heavy thing often, then DON'T.

LOL

choose some other MPV or something

edit: i;ve been driving the L200 since 2001 and traded for the Triton in 2008. The Triton still strong until now. I use it primarily for work

Hilux popular with car jackers.

Triton is less likely to be a target.

hilux for parts. the rest for the bling2 wheels

spare tyre theft is an issue for any make

how you know? not even out yet...
put a canopy behind loo... its like 50kg already right? then on top of canopy put roof rack and ladder behind... another 50kg... 100 kg... then add some xtra stuff loo

LoL putting a canopy defeats the purpose of having a pickup truck

I carry large things often, and they wont fit inside canopies

i rode those fortuner before, but it is not as bumpy as the hilux vigo (same gen as your fortuner)

but daily driving my hilux already made my butt used to the bumpiness already

The newer gen fortuner has improved a lot

But fuel consumption for 2.7 petrol is hilarious

A full tank of 80L gets u around 500km range only. And they get EEV certification for that
