Exclamation NRMA compares Challenger vs Prado...

http://www.mynrma.com.au/cps/rde/xch...yota-prado.htm

$60k vs $90k, in other words 50% more expensive!
Plus, you can't trust Toyota's claimed fuel-consumption figures as they have been proved untrue for other vehicles in their range. The Prado is much heavier so it can't be easier on the fuel if driven the same way.

Cheers

Interesting choice of vehicle's to compare and based on what they said it sounds like if you give the challenger some aftermarket suspension then you'll be laughing and be able to pocket the 30 grand change assuming you are happy with the comfort. But personally I think they really screwed up the dash on the new Prado the 120 series was much better looking.

Cheers,
Kieron

Have to agree the 120 was a nice unit.

My brother has anew 150 series Prado and
the rear end ride is harsher than my Chalenger
It also has a lot of body roll and uses slightly more fuel.
