Different Hilux Diesel motors


Recommended Posts

I want to upgrade from my 2011 Hilux SR V6 to either a 2WD SR Hi-Rider,...4WD SR or depending on the dollars, a SR5.

My question is do I stay with petrol or go diesel. D4D (which I believe had expensive injector problems in their pre 2009 models) or the newer 2.8 motor.

 I would have very little use for a 4WD in my travels and notwithstanding the fuel consumption, I do like the V6 motor, but there are a lot more diesel Hi-lux’s around these days in the later models so I may be reluctantly pointed in the diesel direction whether I like it or not. I just don’t know which one.

My first choice of course would be a later model SR Hi-Rider with the V6 petrol motor but I have no idea if that would be possible in the later models.

I live in the near Barossa area of South Australia so very little of my driving is short stuff, with the odd Eyre Highway return trip across to W.A.at least twice a year.

Any advice would be welcome.
