The updated Cruiser was just a facelift and I'm not sure if the engine was updated..if it was it would be a small difference.

However, next year the Cruiser will be a new vehicle from the ground up....The new diesel engine is tipped to be the 4.4 litre V8 twin turbo with around 220kw and 500nm of torque.

Price tag should be a real show stopper too.

I think the cruiser needs the new model asap, tried and true it maybe but looking dated and needs a better engine to keep pace with the competition. Mercedes is in it's 3-4th generation of Common rail diesel , Toyota needs to catch up, the new engine in the new model sounds like it's worth waiting for.

The updated 100 series only gets the 5speed auto and slightly improved headlights.

The 130 series is now due in the first half of 2007 along with the replacement for the Troopie series as well. You can expect a range of new petrol and diesel engines for both. The current diesel range will not comply with the new ADR for emissions/Euro4 Spec. The USA version (130Series) is scheduled to have a V8 turbo diesel engine but that specification is not yet confirmed for Australia

You can ealso expect the updated 120 Prado in the last half of this year with the Hi-Lux DiD diesel engine on board and a few other tweaks as it is the mid life model upgrade. Pity but this is already an old engine with much better on the market and on the way.

You can expect some surprises with the new Troopie series if my information is as good as it normally is

Mitsubishi also release the new Pajero at the end of 06 as well and the new diesel will have full DiD with 4th generation engine management technology so it will be an even better engine than now.

Save the pennies as we are going to see some very interesting models over the next year
