    It ends at 974,600K cough up and you get it all. Well most of it, anyway. You'll have to cough even more for that useless "Sports Bar."

(the affordability of the V6 Amarok is not even an issue, look at the number of BMW X5' s, VX Cruiser's, Rangie's, Porsche's etc on the road. But I agree - the mind boggles sometimes).

    With that said, the 190 kw Amarok should be a stonking good drive.
    ...but not very much better than the 165kW. Sure, a bit more power, but how much more significant is it, really.

    If you can afford it, then why not buy it?

    As mentioned elsewhere on this thread, it should be a stonking good drive.

    I think it is probably the best bakkie on the road now. Everything else seems inferior. But for that money..

    So Guys, I am a die hard Toyota fan, I want to buy n bakkie, so first option is the double cab cruiser V8 diesel, but ever since the V6 Amarok came out I am intrigue, how good is the 4x4, or then 4 motion on the amaroks.

    Mmmm, hard to compare those 2 as they cater for very different needs.

    The 4motion is class leading, I am yet to see any other 4x4 with the same amount of electronic aids, and then it has a mechanical rear diff lock as well. I have done Bass Lake, De Wildt and Helderberg with electronic aids only.

    I did a few 4x4 trail with my 2014 2.0 Amarok, and have never battled anywhere, traction wise. Two big problems are the width (it's wider than a LC200) and ground clearance. The latter is easily solved with many aftermarket kits available. Some people complain about the lack of low range, and for you driving on the beach, it might be an issue, not too sure about that.

    Apart from that, it is basically the same as Hilux, just with more power and a more comfortable ride. Reliability wise, it really has no known issues, and will last a very long time. Auto box is brilliant, and will only need to be drained / serviced every 100k km. The 3.0 V6 engine is bullet proof, and will last a life time.

    If you want more info, you are welcome to give me a call. Drop me a pm with tel number.

    If I today needs to buy a DC bakkie it would be the V6 Amarok. But I will not use it in serious 4x4 stuff. I have friends that really pushes the V6 hard but you need serious mods. The auto box overheats the moment you need to hammer it like long dune stretches.

    For hunting I just think there are too many sensors and wiring that can be ripped out driving through the veld.
    Not the same vehicle I know. Two of my farmer friends replaced their Cruisers with 2.0l Single cabs. They are both back on Cruisers.

    If you use it as a "Dorp bakkie" it would be fine.

    As said and I will say it again the v6 Amarok is the best leisure DC out there. It is however not the rugged vehicle a Cruiser is.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Absolutely agree. It is not a cruiser, but for us gewone mortals who is privileged to do a few hunting and fishing trips a year, there is not much out there that beats it, especially if said trips involve a few hundred km`s of traveling to the destination.

    Ai the Amarok is an suv with a bak.
    kw/rand compare it to Everest, Prado etc.

    I miss my V6, how ever good the Patrol is, I miss that nippyness, gti style of the Amarok.

    Blerrie Grotman sends me photos of him and his Amarok all over the place and then Amanewbie comes and drives the same routes I do in the Patrol with his Amarok.

    NO SIR... Lets not do that please. You sound like a dealership salesman.

    How about we just buy cars we can afford?! Afford to buy and afford to maintain.

    I don't care how much you make, What kind of sane individual is content on going into R1.5m+ in debt for a car? More specifically a leisure bakkie?!

    Relax. This was merely a discussion. I don't promote this at all. (and I don't owe the bank anything)

    R1 mil for a bakkie And then there is the expensive insurance on top as well. At that price, will the owner really enjoy the bakkie - I doubt it - will probably not want to go into the bush etc. It is not about the engine only - a car is more than that. I had a V6 Touareg and found the V6 overrated.
    I regretted my Touareg V6 purchase and traded in. After all, who needs all this power all the time, 140 to 155 kW is enough.

    For me, 140kw is way too little. My wife's X5 3.0D makes 195kw and that is not enough. See, different people have different needs.
