Possibly selling the V10 Touareg in October, if anyone is interested

Everything is tight, in terms of working space on the V10. A big engine in a normal sized engine bay.

Would have been an awesome option in the Amarok pick up.

It really would have been. 

 

It's no worse on fuel than a Ranger 3.2TDCI but in standard form puts out more than 60% more power and torque.

 

That said, all these impressive old ICE engines will seem like sluggish, dirty dinosaurs in a few years with the electric takeover. I'm looking forward to 600bhp with the Rivian pickup :D

Just checked out of curiosity on the ranger, mind you it’s not very often it’s not towing something.

I hit the heady heights of 27 before I left for Norway. I’m often pulling something as well, but I doubt it’s as often as yourself.

I figured you were asking J but just thought I’d look anyway bud. Big engine having a easy life is always better eh. Spoke to Ford dealer the other day and he was trying to steer me in the direction of a 2 litre 10 speed auto ranger 🤷‍♂️ figures are better than the 3.2 he said but I just can’t get my head around it. 
That would suit me just fine, pref in a patrol but I’m not fussy lol.

A lad local to be buzzes around in a 90s Dodge Ram with the 5.9 Cummins in it. Hauls ass and still sounds amazing.

 

Think Id be giving the 2l a swerve as well.
