What's the best double cab pick-up?

I want to buy a new 4x4 pick-up with a double cab. However, with so many models on offer, I can't make up my mind. Which would you recommend?

New, debatable. The new Nissan Navara has the most comfortable (coil) rear suspension. The Ford Ranger is very good. My personal choice is the Isuzu D-Max because I've bought a few of the previous model and like the I-TEQ engine and gearbox. Avoid automatics on all pick-ups. Slurry, slow and horrible. Report of new HiLux lifting wheels on the Scandinavian Elk avoidance test. New L200 will be strong underneath.
