It's time for an almighty Artic Trucks off-road showdown!

We have actually got our hands on an , and it will take on versus a ! They're two extraordinary pick-ups, and they have actually both been worked on by the group at Arctic Trucks, which suggests they come with a variety of upgrades including wide-body kits, updated springs and dampers, larger suspension and huge 35-inch tyres!

So let's see how these pick-ups compare. Starting with the , it's powered by a 1.9-litre turbo diesel motor that can put down 164hp and 360Nm of torque. This power is sent out to all four wheels, and it tips the scales at 2,205 kg. It's also equipped with a low-range mode along with a rear locking diff.

Together with it is the , which has a 2.8-litre 4-cylinder turbo diesel under the bonnet that puts down 204hp and 500Nm. It also includes off-road tech like in the , although it is a bit much heavier, tipping the scales at 2,325 kg.

Both these trucks come in at simply under β‚€ 70,000 once Artic Trucks have gone to work on them, however which will triumph in this video? You'll need to stick to Mat and see on your own!

      @@purwantiallan5089 They’re both good in their own rights:

      The earlier D-Max have issues with their diffs. The newer ones have issues with their transmissions. I was always couriering diffs for D-Max. Not exactly reliable for off-road capabilities.

      The hilux isn’t without it’s faults either (DPF). Some replace the DPF, others have the inner “gutted” and tuned to make it still pass an inspection.
