Don't get me wrong the Toyota Amazon is a great vehicle - the ONLY one of the Japs I would consider but LR have raised the anti so much now it just can't compete.
Drove the disco 3 with this 2.7 and an auto box and was shocked at how well (quick) it went. The V6 is a very quiet and smooth motor, I was actually more taken with this than the Range Rover with the V8 petrol. Did think that 2.7L and two something tones was going to be a bit tedious did not realise it had so much torque, and as a wise man once said.
“boys talk of bhp, men talk of torque”
speaking of which why don’t outboard manufacturers quote the torque output as in many instances this could be more relevant than bhp?
