    Where can I put my name on "The List"

    I cannot see how a Hilux will be given the same power as the top-of-the-range 300 Cruiser, not going to happen in SA. I'd be happy to eat my words if it does.

    Can you imagine the feeling of such a powerful DC tho

    Dirk, kan jy dink hoe hy die Ratel sal sleep? Sal die onderstel trek soos 'n exclusive karavaan
    Regtig baie nice, maar ja, sal moet sien of hy vir SA beskore is. Ek hoop so

    Jis dit sal een mooi bakkie wees om in die garage te parkeer. Hoop SA bring hom die kant toe, dan kan my begeerte vir LC 79 tot ruste kom

    I've also heard that more than once.

    If the top-of-the-range Prado has to make do with the Hilux/Quantum engine why not share the Cruiser and Hilux engine, it's only a couple of hundred thousand more?

    As die engine in die Hilux en 300 loop,dan sal dit synweg vind na die 79/76.

    Net verbasend hoe die 1HZ aan die lewe vasklou, selfs in produksie.

    True.
    Going by precedent, this is very very unlikely.
    I don't see why the Prado did not get the 4.5D4D or the 4.6v8 petrol. Probably a matter of simple product differentiation

    Question is what power and torque output that engine will have in the LC300.

    My estimate, 240Kw and 690Nm

    Edit, was thinking LC300. No way they will push the Hilux remotely close to that. Toy is waaaaay to conservative.
