    VW Amorak V6 diesel coming

    Sounds like Land Rover has missed the boat again, regarding engine power. [ The new LR Defender? ]

    Iím pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    My question is why haven't they/ when will they ,make a 7 seat wagon version like virtually every other ute manufacturer has done. Hilux-fortuner, ranger-Everest, triton-challenger, dmax-mux, and of course the best defender 110/130 2-5 seat ute/tray-defender7 seat wagon(originally series I,II,III with a up to 12 seat wagon!)

    Still don't like the idea of not having a dual speed transfer case. Its like saying the evoque is a proper offroader because it has a 9 speed transmission...

    Sounds like a lovely motor though.

    You can get low range in a manual transmission. Only the 8 speed auto is single range.

    Mr Pepper believes the auto is every bit as capable offroad, and with that much torque it'll only be more so. I think the question mark is how much offroad towing would strain the box and brakes

    It's been hinted at all along but yeah, I'd love to see them show Ford how it's done!

    I reckon by then the new one will have a 2.0TD Ingenium diesel and 6sp manual. There is that down sizing trend, and the motor is there ready to go. And, I think it will come in the "powerful" 110kw spec, because that's how much power a Defender gets.

    People didn't like the idea of constant 4wd,power steering,A/C,automatics etc either.Personally the only thing I don't like is the fact it's taken so long to do it,smart idea. Pat

    And that's great for Europe, the rest of the world prefers larger capacity for their 4wds. The amarok won numerous awards but in actual sales is struggling, and that's down to a few main things, first being engine displacement, people would rather buy a less capable triton /,hilux/ Colorado/ Dmax/rangaBT with 25-60% larger capacity engine in the belief that it's not being worked as hard. The others are parts and service location
