k, here goes:

the hilux comes in many different models. I assume here you are looking at the 4x4, and not interested in the 4x2

model 1- starts at around $137,000. 2.8 diesel, no turbo, no ECU, no hassle wheel lock 4x4 system, cassette player, steel rims, factory a/c, fabric bucket seats, no tach, manual windows, typical no nonsense 4x4. the 2.8 diesel non turbo has plenty low end torque, it is slow on highway runs. The most you get out of it is 130-140kms, but you won't be able to talk to no one because of the noisy engine.

model 2- same as above, except some more 'dressings'. they basically take the same vehicle and add fender flares, broad tyres, CD player...same damn van for $147,000.00. this is the model i have. Stuff added on ,flares, are after market, and are of not so good quality. the problem with this model is they use the same thin rims to put on broad tyres. On full lock, the tyres rub on the chassis. To compensate, either put on wheel spacers or adjust the lock.

model 3- the hilux 3.0D non turbo but ECU controlled. This model has power everything, halogen headlamps, side running boards, airbag. it is more efficient on diesel because of the ECU control. The bad thing though is the hub locking 4x4 system. Crappy!!! you have to come out and lock hubs for 4x4 system. cost $175,000.00 last time i checked. I would have bought this model if it wasn't for the hub locks. Oh, and you get the same crappy steel rims

model 4- well u know it's the sweet SR-5. 3.0 Turbo, power everything, alloy wheels, rock solid suspension, airbags, ABS i believe, plush fabric interior, chrome, ..........too much to mention.....for $200,000.

all of the above have one thing in common....rock solid performance. you can rough these up as much as you want. You can't break it!!! really good vehicles. I service mine at toyota, on average it costs $400.00.

As opposed to the frontier, it's really a matter of preference. The frontier is nice for comfort and speed. But if you are looking for durability and a long lasting vehicle, then it's the hilux

Thanks much T'Loco and with prices too!!

I got this off the net:

Toyota Hilux 4x4 Double Cab SR5

This is the top of the range HiLux, with gutsy 4 wheel drive manouevrability and the sort of class you'd expect from Australia's classiest pick-up or commercial vehicle. It's big and tough enough to handle all the rough stuff in the toughest conditions on road and off. But it's also got the luxury you and your family deserve on weekends and holidays.

With the 4x4 Double Cab SR5, you'll have a choice between the 3.4 litre, Quad Cam V6 petrol engine (automatic & manual), or the 5-speed manual transmission, 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine.

5VZ-FE
The new HiLux 4X4 petrol has 16kW more power and 56Nm more torque than the model it supersedes, accelerating from 0-100km/h six percent faster. The 3.4 litre V6 Quad Cam multi-valve delivers 124 kW of power at 4600rpm and 291Nm of torque at 3600rpm - an improved performance that comes without compromise to fuel efficiency or reliability.

1KZ-TE
The 1KZ-TE 3.0 litre Turbo Diesel engine offers potent power (85kW/3600rpm) and torque (315Nm/2000rpm). It's the most powerful engine in the HiLux range, and the first electronically injected diesel engine in the one tonne 4x4 utility class.

The engine has a lightweight, compact, water-cooled turbocharger for a balance of performance, fuel economy and durability.

Isn't the free locking hubs a plus?

You have the advantage of saving the components of the front differential and axels when the 4X4 is off.

Isn't these hubs sort after by true 4X4 drivers.

By the way bought one of these recently, them thing does work good and they strong. Looking for a set of lunchbox lockers for the front, free wheeling hubs will save the components.

Next is to lift and put on some 33s
