560nm is fairly decent and will definitely tow equally as a 200 or Ranger if not better.

I bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee last year and honestly believe it will be the last diesel I buy. Next car will be another Jeep or Patrol both with V8 petrol, because I love fuel bowsers
Agreed, Diesels will be forced out of the market in the next 5-10 years, as much as I love them.

Probably earlier than 10 years. Doubt if after 5 years you will get a diesel..

Means we might all be keeping our Pajeros til they die since it may be hard selling them.

Or they become hard to get and the price goes up.
