Before the advent of the iPod, focus, added leafspring and reduced turbo lag, the truck was a beast of burden could carry anything and But that was just about it.

auto manufacturers have their brutes major throwing in advancements in getting point A to point B quickly as common rail direct in providing a close-to-carlike ride, and in interior amenities that compact passenger cars.

But it is in hauling anything and everything defines a pickup, and this this tested Ranger (a XLT 3.0L TDCi m/t model) Two 80-90kg washing machines needed to be brought from to Novaliches (Quezon City) and for repairs were successfully and unloaded, without damage to the area’s bedliner, the inner of the tailgate or the two appliances.
