    You might also want to consider the new ford ranger 3.0 4x4. Those who were able to test-drive it swear that it is the most off-roadable new pick-up in the market today. I'm also in the hunt for a new pick-up and I chose the strada due to the fact that it would fit more my lifestyle.

    Judging from your replies I'm more leaning towards the Strada. But just recently (as in this past weekend), I visited a Toyota dealership, and they said that they released a new set of Hilux which now has ABS and according to them "better rideablity". COULD ANYONE PLEASE CONFIRM THIS?? and could this new set solved the "choking problem" with the earlier D4D?

    "Better rideability" :lol: wala namang salitang ganun. And the Strada has [always] set the standard for ride comfort in the segment. Ask your agent what concrete things they did to make it ride better. Baka puro mumbo-jumbo lang ang isagot sa iyo nun. Toyota doesn't even allow buyers to test drive Hilux units! [See Orido's thread in the diesel forum]

    Mitsu, Toyota, Isuzu, halos pare pareho lang ang long term reliability and maintenance nila (we've had experience with them all, magkakaiba ng years nga lang - Trooper, Pajero, Land Cruiser). For me the image of Toyota being reliable is not untrue. It's just that the competitors are also reliable nowadays.

    I don't see any reason para magtiis sa bucking bronco ride ng Hilux when the Strada and DMax can perform the same function without dismantling my spine.

    ^^^ Pwede na lang sanang "more comfy ride" noh?

    Anyways, +1 for Strada.

    Baka nga dahil GLX yung na-test drive niya kaya niya nasabing matagtag, compared to the top-of-the-line GLS.

    Anyways, I too cast my vote for the Strada. More value for money.

    I've seen the new Ford Ranger ad, and it still bites the dust in terms of styling, IMO. Boxy pa rin eh.

    the hilux will probably beat the strada off-road (traditional territory of toyota trucks) and the hilux has greater carrying capacity and has a larger cab... but i would say the Strada is the better overall vehicle, especially for ride comfort and carlike ease of driving.
