    Indeed.

    AMG probably has the best sounding modern V8 engines.

    Indeed and it will be reflected in the price as such.

    The whole drive train and suspension setup will be bespoke to that model.

    All manufacturers have the tech to build engines like that and...

    Ford & Mazda Re: New Ford Ranger Announcement

    Here is one example. Granted, it is only one owner, my dad.

    He had the First gen Ranger 4.0 V6 auto d/cab. After that he had a 2009 Ranger 3.0TDCI auto d/cab.

    He had those 2 for about 5 years....

    Re: Amarok V6 DPF issues - what now?

    None whatsoever.

    I have a 76mm freeflow and remap. My wife once drove behind me and I asked her to watch for smoke. Even at WOT there no smoking at all.

    I does have a very conservative map...

    No, the biturbo setup is extremely reliable. The turbos work independantly. You hardly ever hear of a turbo failure on a bitdi Amarok.

    Agreed. I would never buy any car without service history.

    You have to ask yourself, why is there no history?

    Absolutely. There was no way that any VW powerplant would ever make it into the new Amarok.

    Re: Tiquan engine options.

    Tiguan all the way if you are budget orientated.

    Maintenance on a Touareg is much more than that of a Tiguan.

    It's a much nicer / bigger car though.

    Re: T5/T6 Owners list

    The T7 and T6 are 2 totally different type of cars.

    The T7 is much smaller, built on the Golf / Tiguan platform. I can't see VW doing away with the T6 in favour of the T7. It will continue, I...

    Good advice. The Caravelle has much better noise insulation than all the other models. Even the standard Kombi is noisier inside.

    There is a conflict in your requirements, the Caravelle has never had barn doors, only a tailgate. It is also the only model that I know that has movable seats.

    The Raptor does not compete with other d/cabs.

    Current Raptor has tow capacity of 2.5T, which is a ton down from other Rangers.

    Price.

    In the Amarok range, 3.0 sales account for more than 80%.
  29. Re: So the new Ranger Raptor will have proper performance!

    Ford and VW has gone into a partnership of sorts.

    Apparently the next generation Fiesta and Torneo will be a rebranded Polo and T6, or whatever it will be called. That's the only reason I think VW...
  30. Re: So the new Ranger Raptor will have proper performance!

    But if they dont sell a lot of something, why not just scrap it? The profit made on Amarok sales surely is insignificant compared to their passenger cars, Polo in particular.

    Indeed. And if it does make it to the Dakar, only the badge on the grille would most likely be the same as a standard Raptor.
  34. Re: So the new Ranger Raptor will have proper performance!

    OK, but why does VW need to have a d/cab.

    In SA they sell more Polos in 2 weeks, than Amaroks in one year. I just don't get it, they tried it, it didn't work.

    Just admit it, and move on.
  35. Re: So the new Ranger Raptor will have proper performance!

    I wonder if VWSA, and VW in general was aware that Ford will use this engine. If not, they must be crapping themselves now, because surely no Amarok will have this engine. Also, if they did know,...
