What, then, is the best pickup truck in the land? Is it the Ford Ranger, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, the Mitsubishi L200, the Toyota Hilux, or the Volkswagen Amarok?

Or, perhaps, our extra-special wildcard entry?

We've got all of the major contenders together in one disused quarry for one massive off-road megatest, to discern which of the above double-cab pickups - all four-wheel drive, all rugged, and all capable of carrying more than one tonne in their load bays - is the fairest of them all.

And once we've done that, we'll line it up against the biggest, baddest pickup truck we've yet driven: a Unimog U218 'implement carrier', ten tonnes and £100,000 worth of badass pickupery.

Steam cars are due a revival.

Should also mention the Hilux is fast and handles well. But best averages 40Mpg.

The only time i get worse mileage is when I am in a queue behind idiot cyclists blocking the road with a line of cars and trucks wasting huge amounts of diesel and petrol while the arrogant cyclist blocks the road.

Really well done video, as an “oldie” I really like Matt Prior’s no bullshit approach , a great tonic to many of the other journos turned videographers .

This pickup is quite outstanding in style and very wide. This is a great car.
