Gooday,
Do yourself a favour go for a test drive in a Jeep Commander 3.00L CRD.
They are not as large as Prado & are a great vehicle, ignore the comments that they are designed on a Bummer, it is the other way round.
Cheers,

Have a good look at the Hyundai Terracan CRDI (turbo diesel), 6 seater, 2.5 t towing, up to 250 kg tow ball weight, great value for money, 5 yr factory warranty, economical, comfortable, reliable. What more could you ask for. Check out this Link

Jeez Doug,

When did you find the time to restore that old 60 series to that standard, like the grille, makes it look almost modern. Best restoration I've seen in years.

Cheers

So, I'm sensing a little bias creeping in here guys. Although I must agree about the retro cruiser, paint looks almost new....................

I would have thought more info is required to get quality answer on this.

EG a Territory would tow that van fine but may not suit if you go offroad......similarly I see no sense in getting a thirsty 4.8 Patrol if you don't intend on going offroad and using it to it's strengths.

The 'Nissan-knockers' here will have a field day - but a 3 litre td Patrol is a top tow vehicle for a light weight van. Ours comfortably pulled our heavy Bushtracker, but as an auto, was way over it's legal load. Recommended for a lighter van such as yours, and cheaper than Cruisers, which would also do the job well.
