The new patrol will have a new shape, which we have all seen before, and two diesel engines.......an upgrade of the current 3 litre!!???? and a 3 litre V6, both Renault engines, early 2010 release according to the winter edition of 4WDriver magazine.....even rumours of a 5.6 litre, 32 vavle petrol V8 maybe but don't hold your breath.

BUT...why not sell this one here in Australia.......Site Link

JEEZ!, ... not that impressive in the motor department as far as the V8 is concerned, lots of revs to get a lot of Hp, lots of revs to only get moderate torque. The Toyota V8s in the Five Litre range look a bit better in the torque range.


Cheers Axle.

I read a site today which said that release will be delayed now till 2011, and will include petrol thankfully.

Perhaps a better question might be , is their room for any new engine to kept current diesel alive till then.

On the other hand the 4800 has been advertized this weekend at $53000 driveaway in Victoria which is less than I paid for mine in 2002 , very tempting
