Rating:

Mazda brother to 2012 Ford Ranger, so shares its benefits of chain cam 125PS/320Nm, 150PS/375Nm and 200PS/475Nm chain cam diesels. 17' 6" long making it jointly the biggest pick-up in its class.

Built in Thailand. Unsure if also built in South Africa where UK Ford Rangers come from. Did not arrive on Thai market until 2012.
