Hi Everyone , Looking for some real world info on the 4 cylinder turbo diesel utes , we are considering a new extra cab ute to travel and tow our 4.35 mtr boat( 730kg on trailer ) considering a ford courier at the moment but looking for any advice on any of the other brands as regards towing ability ,comfort , real condition fuel use and off road ability. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Great advice !

Yes the new Hilux is going to have a 3.0D4 common rail in it on the Prado chassis / drivetrain. Will be a great ute.

There can be some useful info at http://www.utes.com.au as well so check it out.

Don't buy a Courier . Buy Rodeo or Hilux.

The Hilux certainly would not though.

hey,

From memory the Isuzu Rodeo is not a ute. It's a station wagon, looked a bit frontera'ish to me.

The Izuzu Pickup is what we have ( or should that be had.....I hate the new one )

And I like mine ( 3.0 TD Auto 4wd dual cab )

cheers,

Dale
