While previously limited to the flagship 3.0 D-TEQ LX, the self-shifting option has now been branched out to not only include the lower-spec Hi-Ride model, but also on the long-serving 2.5 D-TEQ model for the very first time.
Available on the Hi-Ride extended-and-double cab model, as well as the LE double cab and the ever popular X-Rider, the 100kW/320Nm engine can now be paired to a five-speed automatic ‘box as an alternative to the standard five-speed manual, whereas the 3.0-litre carries on with the six-speed automatic that bowed on the LX two years ago.
In spite of the two-pedal layout, towing capacity is kept at 2 100 kg with combined fuel consumption being rated at 8.1 L/100 km. Unlike its bigger displacement sibling however, no four-wheel-drive versions of the 2.5 can be specified with the automatic ‘box.
Standard on all models is a five year/120 000 km warranty as well as a five year/90 000 km service plan.
