Amazing, I've been looking to trade my 2018 GTI autobahn for the exact same truck. Did you look at the Canyon elevation at all? Just curious what made you go for the ranger. I'm leaning towards the ranger but trucks are still very new to me. Look forward to the build thread, the GTI was very tastefully done :thumbup:

I'll be honest and say that I didn't drive them or really look at the Canyon. Of the GM twins I only would've considered the ZR2. The interior is what killed them for me, the GM twins just seemed really cheap inside.

For me the Ranger was the least compromised of all of the midsized trucks IMO. Yeah it's on a platform that's "old", but I think it's the best mix of capability and luxury/features. It's pretty quick for a truck and the 10-spd is solid transmission. It has a few quirks like no 60/40 rear bench and the tailgate can slam down (there's a $30 fix for that), but otherwise I've been pretty happy with it.
