Hi all.

I need advice between the furtuner 2.5 d 4x4 and the 3 d4d 4x4. I heard when towing the 2.5 strugles, we dont have children at this stage but its in the 1 year plan. Please give me your advice.

Regards


If you going to buy a caravan...opt for the 3.0....otherwise I would have bought the 2.5...more than capable.

And if you chip it, you should be close to a 3.0

Agree, only Hilux SRX is 2,5 D4D 4X4

No 2,5 D4D 4x4 FT.

Yes everyone is correct you don't get a 2.5 4X4
Also you do not get a diff lock with new FT 4x2 ( I think this includes the 3L D4D also)

Duan, if you can, get the 3.0 D4D 4x4. Your choice between manual or auto box.
Regrets? I've had a few...but then again, too few to mention.

Fortuner 3.0 4x4 Auto

Hi All,

I currently drive a Hilux DC 4.0l 4x4 Auto well equipped. I could use some advice on the Fortuner 3.0l 4x4 Auto which I'm considering purchasing in place of the Hilux. The Hilux is a thirsty machine being the petrol, but I also want to look at a SUV for better comfort when travelling in all aspects day to day and holiday use for myself and the family. Is this a good move and is the Auto a good buy in the diesel?

The 3.0l d4d is certainly more economical and does not lack in power. It is a fantastic family and day to day use vehicle and as trustworthy as all Toyotas are.
I have an automatic which for me is best as I work on the road a lot and it is just easier in traffic. Gearbox, however is personal choice.
Mine is chipped which adds a lot of power and a consumption of about 13.2 lpk at 120 kph.

I have never been a Toyota fan, but this car has changed my mind.

It is a well balanced vehicle and suitable for all your needs.

Gregg, I did the same thing, swoped my Hilux for a FT, best thing I ever did!

D4D is a lovely engen and good fuel consumption.

Some of the guy's, like Jakes, have chipped there FT and is extremely happy with the upgrade.

I'm not sure on the perks of the Hilux but what I know is that the Fortuner is a very well balanced vehicle
I don't know if you are aware that the Fortuner 4x4 is a all wheel drive as well.

I had to choose between a D/C and the SUV and at the end I'm happy with my choice I made. Mine is the manual 3L 4x4
I have 2 little ones and we enjoy the space when we do travel far.
I think that manual is better at this stage but that is my opinion and other forum members may not agree with me.
You know all about the auto as your current vehicle is auto so best is to drive the manual also to get a good idea of the manual

My avg fuel consumption is 10.5 km/l
Worst consumption 9.2km/l
Best 11.2km/l
and I try to avg 120 km/h on the GPS most of my driving is long open roads



Keep us posted on your choice

Thanks for the responses, much appreciated. Truth be told I am in the process of purchasing the Prado, but thought maybe I should go the cheaper option and still get a great car. I will arrange to view and test drive the Fortuner before I make any commitments. Will keep you posted.

3,0 D-4D Auto

:hi: I bought the 3,0 D-4D about a month ago in Auto and so far over the moon with her. Been averaging 10.4 / 10,7 km/l and I'm sure this will improve somewhat as time "progresses" ;) Very chuffed :thumbsup:

Hi Duan, I have recently towed an off road trailer with roof top tent through SA in all conditions with my Fortuner 2.5 auto. Managed to tow easily at 120 km/h. Average fuel consumption was around 8 km/l. I have also towed a Sprite caravan with it. So it tows a reasonably sized caravan absolutely fine.
