  1. Would a newer petrol prado 2.7l TRJ150 be a wise swap to a 3.2 diesel Montero 2013 v98, can it be called an upgrade?

      Options and Prestige wise,Prado it is.

      But 2.7 is hella underpowered. The 4 liter V6 is awesome,but rare to find. But the suspension is soft. Hard bends make it swing like a boat. The monty is much better to drive. Off road would be bit more capable on the 2014 onwards 150 more than the monty(took them out recently after asking for your advice).

       

      Also the prado has amathi thuma status. So u can hoon in traffic a bit more than the monty.

      UI don’t daily drive the montero, and it does 4 kmpl in traffic, touched around 75k km, but tight as a drum, my dad drives it mostly really don’t care about the amathi status as I mostly drive around in a kei or the vitz lol, I get looked down upon daily by my colleagues and subordinates who show off,  off road though is a big point. Was wondering since prices have come down, still it’s s hefty sum to go for a petrol prado, just wondering if it will be worth it, the 2.7 vvti is the budget and sensible one

      and the prado is the only petrol suv that won’t depreciate a lot.

      Better to get a fully loaded one mate. A fully loaded one comes with almost all the options available with the Land Cruiser 200(what we call sahara). As for the swinging issue at bends, getting a one equipped with KDSS(Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) can fix the issue by a considerable amount as it helps to stay the body flat during cornering by a fluid mechanism. Don’t expect good fuel economy but expect less maintenance and low resale value.As for me getting a Prado seems a good upgrade over the monty.
