    Default Is 2.5 Liter VIGO any good?

    Most Toyota Hilux VIGO duel cabin pick-ups come with a 3.0 Liter D-4D diesel engine. But there are some with a smaller, 2.5 Liter D-4D diesel engine.

    Are these 2.5 Liter VIGOs any good, especially with Automatic Transmission.
    How do they perform going up-hills, on highways and off-road.
    How about when carrying load.
    Any known Problems and...finally,
    what is their Resale value.

    Thanks.

    I will say NO to 2.5Ltr Vigo because,
    1,Its underpowered if compared to 3.0Ltr thus heavier on fuel,Power to weight ratio. similarly wont be able to perform specially at acute 4X4 terrains.
    2,3.0Ltr is Turbo diesel D-4D DOHC 14 Commonrail 16 valve direct injection 173Hp (127KW) engine and 2.5Ltr Diesel Non Turbo DOHC 14 134HP(100KW) -156Hp engine
    3,Being underpowered,people who opt Vigo for its uncontrollable (sometimes) out put will never go for it thus poor resale.
    4,I wont say all but some parts are different as of 3.0Ltr thus hard to find being a rare available varient.
    5,Being a lower varient as compared to 3.0 Ltr has less features
    Decide By yourself!!!!!!!!!!
