mate has just got a new hilux. 70 plate invincible x. He isnt impressed at all. very agricultural sounding and feel to the interior. Would that have the new engine?
Last time I sat in a hilux I thought the cab was very poor, and you felt like you were sitting on the floor such was the seating position.

I have had a Ford Ranger Wildtrack quote with the same spec as an Aventura Amarok priced to me today at £33,950 + vat. The differences are its on 18 inch wheels where as the Amarok is on 20 inch and the ranger is a 200hp 2.0l 10 speed auto while the Amarok is a 258hp, 3.0l v6 8 speed.
So the ranger is £6,000 + vat cheaper than the OP's 8,000 mile Amarok. Had the Amarok been new and they have not discontinued them, them I am not so sure it would even of been £6,000 and would probably be closer still because 18 months ago a V6 Amarok Highline was low 30's + VAT.
There’s one big difference you haven’t mentioned , Permeant 4 wd on the Amarock which makes a big difference on icy roads, hitting water at high speed and where roundabouts have diesel spilled on them etc

Wow, that sounds expensive. I was in the VW garage last week (OH has an Arteon) and they offered me a brand new Amarok with a V6 engine for €42000. This was because they know I have the world's least reliable Hilux - 87000 km and it's spent more time in the garage than on the road (or at least it feels that way!).

My Hilux has had injectors replaced (twice), a whole series of electrical problems, and throws up more lights on the dashboard than my previous Discoveries ever did. The last 3 times I've left home in the Toyota I've come back on a breakdown truck.

If I could get a half-decent part-exchange price from LR it'd be gone. I have to get rid before the guarantee runs out...

Why, can’t see a problem as long as they have the control software right. Keep the engine at optimum revs when pulling hard for example.
Unlike my new d max which never seems to be able to decide on a gear when towing at highway speed
Yep my dmax is the same, crap gearbox. Bought it as was supposed to be good on fuel, currently doing 8mpg worse than our LR which is 100hp more🤔

I dont think it will basically be a ford ranger with different badge. Not sure where this is coming from?
Some talk of the v6 returning in the new one.
It will be whatever the customer wants to hear in the garage they are in at the time, just so long as they buy one.

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

While still awaiting a decision on the future by Ministers in England, Scotland and Wales, AHDB wants to reassure levy payers their views have been heard following recent ballots in the two sectors.
