    I see there are a few suggestions of a triton which i also think is a good looking double cab.
    Theres also good specials on the Fiat Fullback 2.4 4x4 autos with up to R160k off and they are basically Mitsubishi's that have been re-badged. It doesn't look as good as the Triton but the under-skins the same.

    The problem I have with the Triton or Fiat is the lack of features at that price point. At that price point I rather by a second hand Land Rover which will cost me more long term.

    I've always preferred mitsu especially when it had the super select but my intention is to keep the vehicle for 10 years and although it's not proven its a risk I'm willing to take.

    I don't want to further derail this thread (which has already turned into a Mitsu bashing), but I'm interested in hearing what features the Triton doesn't have at that price point? A price point which is quite a bit cheaper than other 4x4 DC's, which is what you should be comparing it to, not Land Rovers.

    And the Superselect system has not gone anywhere, it is still there..

    But not at "that" price point..

    Is it not true that the Triton does not have super select in all the models and only in some

    That's what I read somewhere..

    I agree, with the looks are good. See alot of Merc in the shape.

    One of these eastern bakkies that disappointed, was the Foton Tunland. Cummins, Getrag, Dana hardware. Has all the right stuff/or most.
    Never took off. I looked at one used, the downside was dealer support/part availability

    GWM/Haval should not have these issues. Have seen a few dbl cabs doing the rounds here in Brackenfell and even some work horse single cabs

    At "that" price point it does. All 4x4 models for sale at the moment have it, as far as I'm aware. From the MQ Triton and newer they certainly have Superselect. In the past some of the older Tritons and colts, club & single cabs I think, didn't have it.

    I have seen a few driving past in the mornings, very impressive looking bakkie, first take was thinking what did Merc do, but then saw the big signage on the nose. It appears commanding with the high nose stance.

    It is certainly setting a new trend wrt tech installed for the price-tag.

    Also worth remembering that GWM / Haval is one of, if not the biggest automaker in all of China, the amount of vehicles they produce yearly is astounding. This leads me to believe that when it comes to things like reliability their growth from ### to pretty good will be more exponential than linear

    Yes these come with the vehicle
    The only item which is an option is a step built into the tailgate for around 3k

    There is a YouTube video mentioned earlier for Cars which compares a Ranger to this and if you search on YouTube you will find a video from Ignition as well.

    Well in that case, I believe only the top of the range Wildtrack can (barely) compete? In terms of gadgets of course..

    Sheesh... a few months ago the upcoming Isuzu wowed me with these kind of features. It is not yet available in our market and when it will be, there will be a premium price on it.

    By then the much lower priced GWM will have sold quite a number of units. I wonder how this will impact "premium" bakkie sales.

    Just be careful of braked towing capacity. On new cars it shows only 1200kg.

    Well, this afternoon there was a brand new white P Series double cab parked in my driveway. My son in law has just taken delivery.

    Bottom of the range 4x2 contractors vehicle.

    Must say, it's very impressive. Build quality and design of interior is great, especially seats and general material feel.

    I think the days of saying the Chinese are coming is over. They are here.
