This could be interesting. The y62 sales have been going through the roof over the last few years.


My last look at a the demo Warrior didn't get me that excited, mind you I think it was 2015/16 model. Now there's more aftermarket gear available might help. Still I think it all going more to the cosmetic side of things regardless of what they say.
That extra $$$ most likely be better off going to your own build.
Whats holding me back on a new Y62 is the fast dating interior. America, UE markets all updated, but noooo not here.

o_O Nissan Australia too huh? I thought that was just Toyota Australia. I guess when vehicles sell well they don't need to add the latest greatest unreliable tech.

305 Patrols were sold in March. The sales are steadily increasing and quite respectable. It will be very interesting to see what happens if Toyota screws the pooch on the 300, they could have a real fight on their hands and may have to put some value features in it.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a bit of competition at that point in the market

Always had diesel's before the Y62, I know a lot of people seem to get hung up on the fact this isn't an option.........reality check - it never will be. I am now a definite convert, never had any issues obtaining fuel and to be honest will never go back.

This is a sexy Patrol on 35’s but check out the size of the van those Yanks drag about. Apparently he gets 6.6 miles to the gallon

My maths could be wrong but that converts to about 36 - 37 l / 100km
Not sure I would want to spend my next 3 month trip with consumption like that, the last big trip was 16000km with the van and from memory averaged 14.4 /100

It's worse by my calculations,. I calculate 43 L/100km. That's about $1000 to drive to Melbourne to Sydney one way, your trip would have cost $15000 just for petrol.

:eek:

That is a huge van, however the vehicles in the background look distorted so maybe an “optical” illusion.
