Russ, I think the only one with 3.4L or bigger is the Hilux, also the most expensive...

The Triton appears to be 8-10K cheaper than both Navara and Hilux, only 3.0L but I find mine has ample power for anything I do... Towing camper, 4wding etc...

You'd reckon I could've thought about it a bit and put all of this in one post...

The above was for a dual cab... The following is for a single cab chassis

Rodeo:$32k 3.5L
Navara: No V6 single cabg chassis
Hilux:$29.9k 4.0L
Triton:$26.8k 3.0L

From the site mentioned above...

Yes I'm at work and I'm bored... In case you're wondering

Mate,

I've just bought a MK Triton Dual Cab - third Triton Dual Cab I have owned. v6 Petrol 3.0lt Couldnt be happier with it. Always been good vehicles , thou Triton seems to have finally got the GLS with all the creature comforts and drives like a car.....

IMHO - Best value for money, thou I must admit the new Narvara4.0 looks nice....

Re reliability : We had Triton,Hilux (Diesels), and Patrols (Gasoline)..All on 3 year leases..All performed perfectly..So it would appear safe to buy on price/fuel economy as long as warranties are equal.Narvara could be good value..Lots of them on duty up here Tropic of Capricorn for mines,contractors & earthmovers..I have never been a lover of power for 4x4 as it defeats the purpose of my love of swapping cogs.Had the 2.8 diesel in the Hilux,last real one with live axles.Loved that motor.Did 7500km Kimberley adventure with it.Magic! (I do love the music a good V-8 plays tho'..We have a older Rangie with a 350 & T-400 SAAS seats etc..Even have a brand new spare 350 for it if needed.Superformance)!MPG:8!
