Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up.

When launching the X-Class,Mercedes-Benz promised a V6 version would be available – and now that promise has been delivered. The 3.0 litre, 258hp (190 kW) six-cylinder is widely used across the Mercedes-Benz product range, and is a well-provenunit. Externally the V6 model is similar to the regular version apart from the X 350 d 4MATIC badging on the rear tailgate and the V6 Turbo emblem on the front wings. The X 350 d shares the same ladder frame chassis and bodywork as its smaller powered sibling. The V6 delivers the 550 Nm of torque over a wide band stretching from 1400 to 3200 rpm. The torque is transferred to the permanent all-wheel drive through Daimler’s 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission in a 40/60 split. A Dynamic Select control offers a choice of four driving modes, Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Manual with shift-paddles on the steering wheel. In off-road mode it is possible to switch between High and Low range while moving, and when combined with the diff-lock and Hill Descent it makes Mercedes-Benz X-Class a more than competent off-roader. On the tarmac, independent front and five link rear suspension produces a stable and car-like ride. The V6 X-Class is exceptionally quiet to drive and the 7G-Tronic transmission works well with the V6 to deliver passenger car performance figures such as 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds, and a top speed of 205 km/h. These figures are normally of little relevance in this segment, though they do indicate what the X-Class V6 is capable of. X-Class comes well equipped with important safety features as standard. In addition, its approach, departure and break-over angles are all more than respectable for this class of Pick-up. In Ireland, X-Class 350d 4MATIC will be available in either Power or Performance trim levels when it arrives here later this year. While X-Class is unlikely to be a volume seller in Ireland, it does raise the bar a little higher for the competition. Nevertheless, the exceptionally quiet and smooth drive offered by the V6 and 7G Tronic driveline could well tempt a few to upgrade. ============================================== ► Please contact this email if you have any copyright issues: firstname.lastname@example.org ► If you love cars you should subscribe now to Auto TV the world famous automotive channel: https://goo.gl/SGPqjc #newcars #autotv #cartv #topcar #topsuv

Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available, and customers can select four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive variants. Wildtrak models feature four-wheel drive as standard. All new Ford Ranger variants achieve significantly improved fuel efficiency, with the 160 PS model offering exceptional figures of 6.5 l/100 km (43.5 mpg) and 171 g/km CO2 emissions for reduced running costs - down from 7.8 l/100 km (36.2 mpg) and 206 g/km CO2 in the outgoing model. Capability and refinement The Ford Ranger remains one of the most capable and versatile trucks in its class. Customers can choose from three bodystyles: two-door Regular Cab, Super Cab with additional rear-hinged doors accessing second-row seating, and four-door Double Cab. Each bodystyle provides a rugged load box with a generous load volume. With a class-leading ability to wade through water up to 800 mm deep, and with 230 mm of ground clearance, Ranger is designed and engineered to handle the most extreme terrains with ease. A 28-degree approach angle and 25-degree departure angle enables drivers to feel confident when taking on steep obstacles. A robust electronically controlled transfer case allows drivers in 4x4 models to shift on the fly from 4x2 to 4x4 High using a knob on the centre console. For low-speed torque or additional downhill braking, drivers also can engage low-range 4x4 gearing, while an electronic locking rear differential helps to improve traction in difficult conditions. These off-road strengths are matched by towing capability of up to 3,500 kg and exceptional payload capacity of up to 1,260 kg....

Ok here's the catch, the car doesn't run, is held together only by rust and mud, and has spent the last 50 years buried in a waterlogged concrete vault. Who put it there and why? Let's find out.
