    Default Hilux 2.4 GD vs 3.0 D4D

    Evening guys,

    I am looking at buying a Hilux 4x4 double cab and was only considering the 3.0 D4D but I have seen some 2.4GD SR/X models for around the same price.
    How would you compare these options?

    I'm not a serious 4x4 candidate, its mostly going to be the do it all car for family, holidays (dirt roads), occasional 4x4, and maybe a Namibia/Botswana trip.

    I have not seen any online comparisons...

    Thanks

    Go test drive both. Buy the one that speaks to you. Personally prefer (and bought, so biased) the 2.4 SRX. The 6 spread gearbox is just better. On the other hand. 3.0 D4d is proven....

    I have had both and the 2.4 is a much better all round vehicle.

    It's negative is the soft body but that also makes it lighter.

    Cruising at 120 in a d4d is close to 3000 rpm and the 2.4 in 6th is 2000 rpm.

    The extra nm is also lovely
    The 2.4 is bottom of the range and the 3l is a more solid.
