I drove one for about 15,000km from new.
Not the most powerful and struggled up hills. Also it smoked badly to the point that the tailgate was stained black. They did numerous adjustments to the pump but could not stop the smoking. It drank fuel.

Otherwise it was a modest but solid vehicle. Personally the 2.8 Lux may be a better bet, however I guess it is a case of horses for courses for you.

Toonfish,
I cannot speak for the 3.2. The current ones with the 3.0l go really well (B--- fantastic I am told by a son who drives one as a firey).

However, the question was about a '94 and unfortunately the 2.7 was a little out of the class at that time. However, it is horses for courses and if the price is right then other issues can be suffered I guess.

Cheers

The 2.7 struggles. Questions about gearbox longevity. Limited front wheel travel also short shockers fitted in rear. Body tough. Suffers from lack of wheel travel, and underpowered. Clunks from steering on full lock. Not popular and therefore resale is rat- bleep . Needs plenty of mods for serious off-road work. Limited after-market goodies. Suggest pay the extra for the Toyota or Holden.
