so no more cab chassis either...

Quote
The demise of the Patrol cab chassis and wagon models was inevitable. The diesel-powered variants of the decade-old four-wheel drive were kept on following Nissan's global decision to only offer the current generation Patrol, which went on sale in 2013, with a V8 petrol engine.

The way the modern diesel engine is going with EPA stuff and the trend for smaller capasity. I am seriously thinking that my next 4wd will be back to petrol power

Plenty of killerwasps and perfect as a daily driver. The fuel economy would go through the roof towing the Goldy, but how often are you going to do that now.

My economy towing the 1.8T camper improved by about 1.5L/100km with the V8 petrol compared with the 3L CRD over the same roads and the safety and enjoyment went up enormously.

Best move I ever made. In traffic I'm 3-4 litres per hundred worse than the Prado, open road towing the van 2 litres worse, and open road unloaded, no difference.

And the patrol would be 1 tonne heavier, and has a bucket load more power. Given what I've spent on catch cans, injectors, EGR cleaning and blocking, and exhausts, a little bit of fuel is cheap.

You mean to tell me you didn't want to add to all that immersive environmental experience, the Green outer glow of adblue and a vac bag stuck up the exhaust? What are real men coming to nowadays I ask myself.

Dunno much about the Toorak Tractors except to note the V8 has come along a bit since its inception-

and it's not going to get any easier with Euro6 standards

Listening to a segment on talkback today and it was suggested that the 300 series LC will be a V6.
