    I had 3 Izusu's DC in a row the past till GM took over, was quit satisfied with the vehicle, yes each service there were some small issues but I could lived that. Took me a year to rid of the last Iz, and eventually a Toy dealer traded it in on a hilux. Till now I found no reason the change manufacturer again.

    Except a Land Cruiser 70 series. Then this article suggests that pimped up gladiator will compete in that space? Good luck.

    I've read about new contenders for years now, but in the end it will be toyota and ford way ahead of the rest. Not that the isuzu or triton is bad bakkies, they are actually very nice.
    Jeep will be hardly be noticed, it will be a status simbole to the same people that like the Mbenz bakkie and the AMG gelade wagon, and it will be priced over a million rand by then.
    So nothing exiting.

    Yep. A Jeep Gladiator is just as much a fashion statement, it can hardly be considered very practical and certainly not cheap.

    I would also just buy an LC70 and be done.

    Jelo you are prone to post a lot of ### very often! I bought a Hiux double cab in January. A rather fancy one as double cabs go. It was bought to serve a certain purpose,as all my other vehicles do. But for the life of me, I cannot understand how a double cab bakkie can ever be seen as a fashion statement or to make up for some personal short coming!

    I can understand that some people can see a two door sports car or a high peformance hatch back perhaps as a fashion statement, but a double cab? Please! You are just posting nonsense!

    Sweis, it doesn't apply to all. Go tell me a Raptor clone as a daily drive isn't a fashion statement. And methinks you feel the arrow is close to home.

    Actually these bakkies can be fashion statements.

    Here it's common for young rich guys to pimp a Ranger, Hilux, Navara ,D-max etc with shiny alloys, low profile tyres, silly sound system etc.

    Then park them by the 'in vogue' night club.

    Much more so than sports cars , since roads here are crap and speed bumps kill low hot hatches .

    Also some of them are popular with the 'mums that lunch' for school/gym runs etc...never will they see dirt/work.

    Well, maybe not the "rich" guys, but rather the crowd with different spending priorities, on shiny mags, decals, bonnet scoops, etc. ?

    Or otherwise, people "pimping" with roof racks, spades, sand tracks, gas bottles, etc. all day and every day of the year

    Hi Guys and Girls.
    These new models will always be there as in the past. Its a war out there between the manufactures to up their sales. Competition has and always will be a good thing. In SA i think they will struggle to get to the Hilux an Ranger figures. Just my 2 cents on this topic.

    If the 21st century's idea of a knight in shining armor is a Toyota with a snorkel, mankind is doomed.

    They defined quality as "Conformance to Client Requirements". For example, a Rolls Royce conforming to its owner's requirements is a quality product, wheras a 60 year old Morris Minor conforming to its owner's requirements is also a quality product. In terms of their thinking quality is therefore not measured by comparing different brands objectively and placing a value or score on features or abilities, but rather by considering owner wants, needs, desires and what the product is required to do for them.

    This goes hand in hand with the philosophy that clients buy products not for what they are, but for what they do.

    In any event, heavens knows what the post Covid 19 exchange rate will do to the price of eg. the Jeep.
