Dear Pakwheels/members and experts,
My range to buy an SUV is between 1,500,000 and 2,500,000. Kindly suggest a good 4X4 in this range.
It should be a good 4 wheel drive for offroads (not neccessarily rock crawling)
Nice ground clearance (surf clearance is good)
Should be comfortable to drive on normal roads as well
Parts should be available in Pakistan (its ok if they are available in only one city - i.e. Karachi, but should be inside Pakistan)
Should not be older than the year 1992
Should be an automatic (transmission)
Would prefer an SUV over 2000 cc.
Performance is more important than running cost
I will tell you what I have in mind
Toyota (Land cruiser, Surf/4runner, Prado, Tundra)
Land Rover (Range rover, discovery) not defender as I have not seen any automatic (transmission) defender yet. If they are then yes
Nissan Patrol (3 dr)
Jeep Grand Cherokee
If by any luck someone is selling a Hummer H2/H3 in this price (which is not likely) then I will go for it.
Mercedes G or BMW X
If someone is selling an SUV in these criteria and want to sell then do let me know.
Experts/members kindly advise (please include Vehicle, Model, Est. Price). Preferably ISB registered.

I am very thankful for your patience as you have suggested me cars/links but I have not gone for them yet. Now I have narrowed down my search to only one car maker and then again to only three of the car maker's vehicle types. This is due to parts availability and better feedback.
- Toyota LC (100 series)
- Toyota prado (only 3 door)
- Toyota surf/4runner (2003 and newer models, the new shape ones)
I have also increased my budget range to 3 million and narrowed down the search to only and only ISB registered cars. Un-registered is a special case.
If anyone is selling any of the above 3 vehicles in this price range kindly let me know.
I thank you again and best wishes for Ramazan
Narrowed it down to Toyota Surf/4runner
1997-2002 model budget 2 Mil and 2003 plus model budget is 3 Mil. Anyone selling let me know
