4x4. Toyota Landcruiser HDJ100.
4.2 EFI turbo diesel.
Plenty of power, and reasonable economy.

Thats a bit none eyed.

There are plenty of other options from all the manufacturers.

Diesel has got to be the go though.

Is it? I don't think so. In Toyotas own mind may be.

The HDJ79 is a good option if there are only 2 of you.
The original suspension is often replaced early,so see if it has been done.

go to a dealership and ask to test drive whatever you your told is 'best' and take it to all the places you *normaly* drive on a daily basis.

Some are like driving a big truck, as in a TRUCK, not a nice thing to drive in the city at all, with a turning circle that needs a carpark.

BUT.... they will possibly be nicer on the corrugations :-)

then go test drive an AWD suitable for the weight you will tow

Some men marry blondes. Some marry brunettes, Some like them skinny. Some like them err err plump.
Same with motor vehicles. Buy what suits you. You have more chance of trying them out. You can often hire one (not the women) for a week and see what is right and what you don't like.
You then "pays your money and takes your chances".

It's a difficult choice and when I upgrade I will be looking at a Patrol because of the cheaper price for a similar vehicle. (My current 80 series is great on road, off road and for toweing) If I win the Lotto I would not go past a Toyota.

For those with parking concerns I find the 100ser is far easier to park than the Patrol I had previously and despite the higher price I wouldnt go back to the Nissan
