    Default 4x4 for 150k-200k

    I'm looking to sell my current 4x4 and buy a new one. I will hopefully get around 150-200k for my old car so thats how much i have to spend. I live in the city however i will be going on overland trips to Bots, Nam, Zim, Zambia etc. I need something with reasonable range and 4x4 capabilities that is also practical. Any help would be appreciated.

    Look around, find a couple of choices that you like. Take each for a drive. Pick the one you like best.

    Failing that, buy a Hilux. You will get decent resale value.

    Would you use it as your daily transport or only weekend/holiday vehicle?

    Ok. I am lost. If you sell for 200k and then get one again for 200k all you are doing is changing your 4x4. You are staying in the same pricr bracket. Is it then not better to keep what you have as you do not know what you are getting.

    Wranglers are not great overlanding vehicles and heavy on juice.

    Ok. There is a few avaialble. Look at www.cars.co.za. nice Tritons and Toyotas with low km. Saw one Toyota for 190 000.00 with 90 000km. Full house. My choice will be a Toyota D4D DC 4x4 in thia case

    Thanks for the replies

    Rainier I'm trying to decide between SUV and Bakkie. Choices are Prado, Fortuner or Hilux, Ranger, Triton. I just wonder if prado and fortuner will be able to handle off-roading in Bots and so on. A good range would be preferable.

    riaande I will most likely be using it every other day or everyday

    Erwin I want to sell my jeep because of the fuel consumption and impracticality although it will be hard to let go!

    Agreed, very comfortable and capable vehicle.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    Get a low km diesel Fortuner, it ticks all your boxes.

    Ok ya i have heard the Pajero is a work horse! What is it like offroad compared to Hilux? Talking about heavy sand, river crossings and mud. Only things i have heard against Fortuner is that they are a bit soft off-road. Thoughts?
