If you were to ask me which of my interests goes to the top, it would be cars. Since high school, anything about cars excites me; I even joined car clubs and I used to buy and sell cars and car parts when I was in college. And to be honest, I spent more money on cars more than myself. So when I got my hands on one of my dream pickup trucks, Ford Ranger, I did not waste time and drove it all the way to La Union!

Owning a pickup truck is one of my goals because it is the most versatile vehicle that you can own. Most pickup trucks are known to have power when carrying heavy loads but lack speed, which is why I was surprised that the Ford Ranger Wildtrak have both power and speed; overtaking and going from 0-100km/h are as easy as pie.

To test drive the Ford Ranger, Trice and I decided to go to La Union, also to celebrate our Anniversary last March 5.

When choosing the right vehicle to buy, I always consider the design. The Ford Ranger is a good-looking truck that doesn’t look like an ordinary truck.

Even the interior doesn’t feel like you’re in an ordinary truck with its leather upholstery and modern design.

The driver seat gives that snug feel. From headroom to legroom, this vehicle is perfect for tall guys like me.

Furthermore, the backseat has plenty of legroom even if the driver seat is in a comfortable position. The rear center armrest gives additional comfort and functionality.

Since I love listening to loud music whenever I’m driving, I enjoyed the sound quality of the Ford Ranger. The head unit doesn’t have a built-in navigation but it is capable of Apple CarPlay where you can connect your iOS device to read messages and navigate using Maps.

There is also a separate control for passenger’s A/C, which is a big plus points because Trice gets cold easily.

The two USB sockets let you charge your devices and connect to the head unit.

One of my favorite features is the 240V 150W power outlet that is perfect for those who are always on-the-go – they can charge their camera batteries or laptop wherever and whenever they go.

The front passenger also has control with the central door lock. This is pretty convenient when the driver has to leave, for example restroom, as the passenger can easily lock/unlock the doors.

On our out of town trip, I also let Trice drove for a couple of miles.

At first, I had trouble adjusting the driver seat for her. Thanks to our friend, Eason, who also reviewed the Ford Ranger, for helping us with the toggle switches.

If you’re also having trouble adjusting the seat, here’s how you can control the switches.

Other features that got me stoked during our road trip were cruise control, automatic headlights and stability control. These features helped me on our 5-hour drive trip to La Union.

When we were in La Union, I took a photo of the gas mileage. City driving and long driving combined, we got 8.8km/L.
