You Europeans may laugh at big off-road diesel SUVs, but when the world ends, these will be in hot demand.

last year when I was in Ethiopia doing charity work in the mountains. Lots of the roads were nearly undrivable. The driver would have to swerve to the left and right sides of the roads wherever it seemed less rough. All of our cars were old Toyota Land Cruisers. It was like as if big SUVs were bought in cities, driven for 10 years before sold off to Africa when they finally start being used as intended.

Good for you man, doing charity work. We’re they 100-series or 70-series?
aaayy 7m ago @dr. cosimo
Cosimo, these things will last longer than just about everyone on this website. I have multiple family members who’ve owned Land Cruisers that outlived them. Not to mention that they never had them serviced, which was clear when we checked out the cars to sell them.

Rang Rover V8 diesel
power like a bear, sounds good and convince with low consuption and a smooth quiet running. Very late close to the 125mph mark it started loosing acceleration steam...the engine and ZF tranny developt for this SUV are a true masterpice
Mercedes GL 450 CDI
The diesel V8 sounds sometimes stressed but thanks to 700Nm of torque he never is. It was the benchmark befor the Range Rover V8 now the engine tranny combinations looks little bit dated... needs little more revs and the tranny took slightly longer to shift.
Land Crusicer V8 D-4D
The engine fights the high weight and large tires, it result in a very slow throttle respons, the engine is unwilling to rev, the 6 speed automatic is dated and the engine loose lot of its power in the trannys torque converter. Under full throttle the engine runs rough and has the highes consuption in this test of 18mpg, Mercedes 18.5mpg, Range Rover 20.2mpg..
The Toyota is the farest away from factory claimed consuption (18.0tested - 23.0mpg claimed) followed by the Range Rover (20.2tested - 25mpg claimed) Mercedes is the closest to the true (18.5tested - 20.0mpg claimed)
