I wonder how it will really compare to the current twin turbo v8.


The Torque figs look impressive , if it not just a marketing ploy.



Cheers Axle.

if i was to buy a toyota and that is a massive IF . this 300 series on paper looks like a winner . power figures are impressive and about 15% better than the current 200. Lighter, better fuel economy and a modern interior .

For the diehard's they will mourn the loss of the V8 but really i can't see anything bad about the new version, apart from it looking like a bashed crab

Hi Dusta, The bashed crab look seems to be the norm at the moment!...LOL.


I can't see why it should not be a good unit either

It will need to be for the money that will be asked!


Cheers.

The front looks a bit blunt.
I guess a lot of it will be removed for an after market bull bar.

I wasn’t a fan of the 200 or latest generation Hilux when they were released but the look grows on you over time
Hopefully they don’t have too many teething issues, it looks impressive on paper

Will be a bonus if the designers found somewhere more convenient, and accessible, for the starter motor in the V6. An alternator with a bit more altitude would suit the mud running fraternity too.

Doesn't matter how much Toyota beef it up there will always the cowboys that want a 3" lift and air bags at the rear.
As well as wanting a GVM upgrade.
I just hope for their sake Toyota also beef up the rear diff housing as some had quite a bit of a problem with them distorting and even breaking.

Those cowboys would be well off or even rich. Now, how many inches can they be lifted? We must know this, so prior planning can be done to be the best on the block.

Don’t need to be a cowboy to want/need a GVM upgrade, Noggin.

Bit of bar work, a long range tank & most 200’s were almost on the standard GVM. Makes good sense to up the mark through SSM.

Do you mean "up the Marque"? ie, a make of car, and what has same sex marriage got to do with it? SSM is quoted everywhere these days!

Good pun Ross, wish I’d thought of that!

Mark was referring to mark on set of scales or weighbridge.

SSM, no, not that! Second Stage of Manufacturing, you should know that?

Thought it stood for "Silly Sad Man" Bob.
By the way, who is "Mark"?

I think I'm in my "Second Stage of Manufacturing".

So it's SSM to everybody. lol
