    If you are buying now, go for the 2.0. The 3.0 will soon get the uprated 190kw engine, but that will obviously be more expensive.

    Also, if you are not towing heavy loads, the 2.0 is more than enough. I drove a 3.0 a few months ago, and when I got back in my 2.0, I did not feel short changed in any way.

    Will test drive the more powerful 3.0 next year and then decide whether to buy or not.

    R60k in the long run is not much money. I believe the V6 will retain better second hand value. Definately R60+ over the 2.0.

    Let me call Quack and RynoB.
    They both owned 2.0 Bi-Turbos and both bought V6's.

    Just wait here Aaron...

    I had the 2l Amarok, now V6 Touareg.

    If you do not tow, 2l is more than enough.
    Start towing and the V6 kicks ass.

    I'd definitely say the V6 in that "Top range" bracket, BUT just be awake, the new V6 Rok will reportedly have an uprated kW??

    Is that "uprated" one gonna cost more than the current one??

    Just give that a thought, I'd say.

    Do you need an engine cover?
    Do you really need to annihilate everything at the robot?
    Do you want to kick Mannieís arse on a sand dune?
    Is overtaking 5 cars at a time and three interlinks really that important?
    Is a top speed far north of 200 sensible in a bakkie?
    Do you really have to tow 3.5 tonnes at a time?
    What a life!

    We discussed the 2 and Ryno's oppion is go for the 3.0L V6 there is no comparison. Quack will give you the same advise.

    It will cost more, no doubt. Question is how much more. As for me, I like my toys, so I wont settle for anything less than a 3.0 highline plus.

    In fairnes, if I take the 300k I was given as a trade on my 2.0 compared to the over 800k I paid on the V6 (Iíve added a few extras) the 2liter is a much better buy any given day of the week

    Does the 2.0 also boil it's gearbox oil like the V6 does?

    Indeed, while waiting for the Fortuner to eventually complete the obstacle. The same obstacle the Rok idled through without rear diff lock engaged. Oh, and without low range as well.
