Ideas on new car

Due to a recent family car accident i am in the market for a new car. I have narrowed it down to a mazdaspeed 3 or a mid sized truck. If i were to get a truck i wouldnt want to spend no more then about $25,000 and would like it to be somewhat capable off-road. From what ive seen theres the Ford ranger off road, and the Nissan frontier, gas millage isnt that necessary because i only put about 8,000 miles on my car a year. So if you guys could help me out on the truck then i could decide if i wana do some casual off-roading or play around with a mazdaspeed 3.

well heres the deal my sister crashed her zx5 and is most likely totaled, so instead of her buying a new car my parents are giving her their old car. They are probably going to take me zx3 because my mom puts about 30,000 miles on her car a year and needs good gas millage. I will probably get the money from the insurance and i will be putting that towards a car plus some of my money mainly because she wouldnt be able to afford the insurance on a new car. Its kinda confusing.
