But pride is like half-heartedly accepted because success achieved with the title as the project vehicle. To delete the image, the KTB launch Strada Triton exceed design with modern, stylish and luxurious. Reserved for VIP or private hobby with pick-up but can be used everyday.
Indeed, in terms of form, exterior design exceed more luxurious than the previous generation. Its base is still the same with Triton GLX and GLS, there is only the addition of ornaments. As performed PT Nissan Motor Indonesia on the Livina Livina XR X-Gear. The difference is, if X-Gear after sweetened no longer looks like a SUV hatchback.
In addition to luxurious, the exterior of the Pajero Evolution Exceed reinforce the impression of a powerful and dynamic. Like the front, plus a new grille design ornaments on the bumper and fog lights make the look more sporty. On the side of the given body side molding and footrest (Footstep). Then the rear bumper is designed footing.
In addition to the exterior, the space behind the driver and passenger enlarged. Length overall length of 150 mm more interior than its predecessor. Likewise, high room (from the bench) both front and rear.
Speaking of luxury, Exceed still less with the Nissan Frontier Navara. Operating system simply press the button 4x4. However Navara still picky when invited to a field line off-road ground clearance is still high because of Exceed.
Exceed Concept not only gives the appearance of SUVs, more than it shows a true performance SUV. Technology and toughness has been tested in laboratory malignant nature through Dakar rally.
Type 4D56 engine capacity of 2477 cc DOHC 16 Valve, 4-cylinder CDI IC / TCI same as used in the GLS. Nevertheless, both listed as first in the family pickup Mitsubishi cammon the low pressure rail that generate big power with low exhaust emissions.
With the power of 136 rpm from the kitchen ps/3.500 runway with turbo intercooler was not invited to be afraid off-road terrain. Hard impact could be absorbed because Ladder Frame construction is thick and strong.
When browsing off-road terrain is equipped with a 4x4 system. Displacement of the 2H to 4H without having to stop, but below 100 km / hour. Except from 4H to 4L car must stop and the gears in the normal position.
At the rear wheels are equipped hybrid LSD combined with viscous coupling unit (VCU). These systems are specifically designed to work with the ABS system to generate greater traction when one wheel slips. Then be afraid brakes locked when stopped suddenly because it is equipped with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution).
Live now, the success KTB Strada Triton bury image as a project vehicle. To achieve the sekajab bit difficult because of the targeted 1,000 units, Exceed allocated only 200 units. SBT

It has been the top seller in Europe for sometime now but now South Africa leading pickup magazine "Bakkie & Truck Action magazine" has declared Nissan Navara 2.5 DCI 4x4 as the Best Bakkie for 2007. European magazines are not far behind in extolling Navara - the Nissan Navara has been voted the ‘Pick-Up of the Year’ for the second year running in 4x4 magazine's 2007 awards. Rick Carroll, 4x4’s editor, commented: “The Navara is simply the best. ... The reasons are simple: Nissan’s Navara provides the best combination of working truck practicality with everyday driving involvement. A strong, torquey turbodiesel, bold but not outlandish styling and a comfy interior scored higher than its rivals can match.”
Nissan’s Navara was the best-selling pick-up in Ireland, UK and Europe in 2006. It commanded an incredible 25 per cent of the European market for pick-ups. Navara unseated pickup segment leader Isuzu Dmax in 2006 and claimed 41.2% percent of the market relegating DMax to a distant second. Mitsubishi Triton's recent introduction may change the market dynamics even further. These figures do not include the impact Mark and Mark Motors had in the market by exporting Vigoes and Triton to the Emerald Isle.
Since its launch in June 2005 more than 60,000 European customers have found in Navara the perfect tool to work hard and play hard. By offering SUV levels of comfort, space and on-road dynamic performance for civilised weekend motoring, combined with super-tough characteristics for a hard-working Monday-Friday lifestyle, the Navara has given customers the option of owning a pick up which doesn’t compromise their daily lives.
The combination of SUV qualities and pick up utility offered by the Navara has raised the stakes in this competitive segment. It is therefore no surprise that orders have begun poring in from the UK and the Southern African region and the Caribbean region is not far behind. From early signs, Navara promises to be another Vigo. Vigo had caused similar customer interest worldwide as Navara has now.

The Escalade EXT is the only game in town if you're looking for a luxury-brand Sport Utility Truck. But it's more expensive than other SUTs, and its bed isn't as useful as a pickup truck's.
Like the Chevy Avalanche, the Escalade EXT has a folding midgate that allows the rear seating area to double as part of the cargo bed, providing a full eight feet of hauling capacity while still allowing car-like seating when you need to carry more people than cargo. Car and Driver is blunt in their assesment of the Escalade EXT: "The Caddy tows less than the Chevy and doesn't have as much passenger space as an Escalade SUV. We don't get it."
In the end, the Escalade EXT is a niche vehicle. It appeals mainly to buyers who car about luxury above all else, but still need a little utility. The 2010 Escalade EXT's bed/midgate combo is matched with a massive V8 engine and a well-appointed, comfortable cabin with seating for up to five. In short, the Cadillac Escalade EXT is for buyers who want it all and can afford to pay for it.
However, Escalade EXT buyers will not only have to pay for all that luxury at the dealership, they'll also have to pay at the gas station: the EXT is thirsty, even for an SUT. While most reviewers like the Escalade EXT overall, they also note that there are less expensive and more capable options out there.
Other Sport Utility Trucks to Consider
Much of the same capability can be had in the Chevrolet Avalanche for less money. The Avalanche and the Escalade EXT share many components. While the Avalanche doesn't quite have the interior refinement of the Escalade, it costs about $26,000 less than the Escalade EXT.
Other SUTs, like the Honda Ridgeline, offer better fuel economy and similar performance for a much lower price.
If you need more utility, check out upper trims of full-size pickups like the Ford F-150 Platinum or the Toyota Tundra Limited. These trucks don't compromise on performance, but have the same heaping dose of luxury as the Cadillac EXT.
Details: The Cadillac Escalade EXT
The Escalade EXT was last redesigned in 2007. For 2010, not much is new. The Escalade EXT's 6.2 liter engine now has GM's active fuel management technology, which saves fuel by shutting off four of the eight cylinders when they're not needed. Also new for 2010 are standard side airbags for the driver and front passenger. Finally, a USB port in the center console is standard for 2010.
Acceleration and Power
Only a single engine is available for the nearly 6,000-pound Escalade EXT, and it's a big one: a 6.2-liter V8 that can generate 403 horsepower, plenty of low-end torque and a towing capacity of 7,600 pounds. By and large reviewers think this engine is great, but a few say that even this much power can barely keep up with the EXT's bulk. The EXT comes with a Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission with a Driver Shift Control manual mode. Reviewers say the transmission performs smoothly.
For 2010, the Cadillac Escalade EXT's engine has active fuel management technology, which saves fuel by shutting down four of the engine's eight cylinders when they are not needed. The EPA has not released new fuel economy estimates for the EXT.

Hummer H2 indeed look very different from most cars. Form a unique and a large dimension.
in the standard conditions in the giant SUV is only able to steal the attention, how about the limusinnya version? Hummer surely this one into a luxurious monster seize the attention of every person.

With nearly 9 meters long, Hummer H2 Limousine presence is very light. The extraordinary length to make Krystal Enterprises, base the body of a car company in Brea, California that make claims Limousine-SUV is capable of carrying 15 passengers at once.

When you consider that the UK's new car market is around 2.4 million new vehicles each year, the 34,314 pick up sales in the UK last year is really only a drop in the ocean. But the growth potential is not being overlooked by manufacturers, who are busy bringing new, updated and more sophisticated vehicles to market.
Mitsubishi is the clear market leader in this sector with 80 per cent of its sales being for high-value, technically-advanced double cabs used as alternatives to 4x4s and SUVs. They have found favour not only with private buyers but, because of the personal tax and VAT reclaim advantages that apply to commercial vehicles, company car 'user choosers' and businesses have all climbed on the bandwagon.
Nissan and Isuzu have also updated their model ranges and Ford will be launching their larger and more powerful pick-up Ranger models soon.
Toyota, not to be left out, and once the market leader for UK pick-up sales, has recently introduced its sixth-generation Hilux. Like its competitors, the Hilux is available in single and double cab forms with two- and four-wheel drive options, depending on which model is chosen.
The Hilux has a worldwide reputation for ruggedness and can be found in virtually every corner of the world from Alaska to the Sahara to the Australian outback. The Hilux is sold in 164 different markets worldwide and, with more than 12 million sales to date, it ranks as Toyota's second best-selling model behind the Corolla.
The latest Hilux is considerably larger than previous models — not least of all in its length, which has increased by nearly a foot. The extra inches are mostly in the wheelbase and provide more interior space, a better ride and improved passenger comfort. However, where it matters most — in the load bed — the capacity has been increased by 25 per cent for single cab models and 30 per cent for double cabs.
One of the biggest complaints about the new Mitsubishi L200 double cab models is their smaller load bed. And whilst it still appeals to recreational users, it does not have the appeal it once enjoyed with commercial users where load space is the priority.
The new Hilux models have a new ladder frame chassis which is forty-five per cent stiffer than the previous models. They also have better aerodynamics and much more modern styling. Like the Mitsubishi and Nissan, the new Toyota Hilux has a much roomier interior, plenty of storage space — including very handy compartments under the rear seat, that tips up for access — and a car-like specification. The double cab has four passenger doors and seating for five passengers. It has car-style controls, including an easier to use central handbrake. The only real shortfall for the Hilux over the L200 and Nissan Navara is that the middle passenger in the rear seat only has a lap seatbelt — other competitors have a full three-point belt. Neither does the Hilux provide a height-adjustable driver's seat.
The Hilux double cab is available with three grades of specification but all models have air conditioning, electric windows and remote control central locking. ABS braking and driver and front passenger airbags are also standard fit. The sound system varies between each specification.
In the technical department, the Hilux has a new double wishbone
front suspension which improves the road handling characteristics.
The rear suspension still has leaf springs — for durability and to allow for heavy loads to be carried. But this does mean a rather harsh ride for passengers, especially when the vehicle is unladen.
However, the Hilux scores heavily over the L200 because all models have a rear differential lock — a 'must' for those venturing off-road, especially if the vehicle is being used for towing because four-wheel drive is no good if you lose traction through the rear wheels. For vehicles such as these having a differential lock is, I believe, essential.
Usefully, the shift from two- to four-wheel drive and back to two-wheel drive can be performed easily whilst on the move.
The most disappointing element of the Hilux is the 2.5-litre D-4D common-rail direct injection turbodiesel engine. The 4-cylinder's power output of just 101bhp is simply not in keeping with what other manufacturers are offering these days, when up to 160bhp is quite normal. The torque output of 192lb ft for four-wheel drive models — available from 1,600rpm — is acceptable, the Hilux pulling well and driving with flexibility at low speeds.
Once on open roads, though, it delivers a lacklustre performance. As
it is a commercial vehicle Toyota — in common with some other manufacturers — do not publish official performance figures but top speed is around 100mph, 0-60mph takes 18.2 seconds and fuel consumption on the combined cycle is 34mpg. Help is at hand in the form of the power boost kits just introduced by Owen Developments.
Owen Developments are specialists at getting more safe and useable power out of petrol and diesel engines, and are the brains behind similar power upgrades for Mitsubishi products — everything from Lancer Evolutions to L200 pick-ups. The new Owen Developments power upgrade for the Hilux's 2.5-litre diesel engine will boost the out-put from 101 to 120bhp, and it increases the torque as well. The kit costs £525 plus VAT, according to their latest press releases. I have driven both the L200 and Isuzu pick-ups fitted with these power upgrades and they really are excellent.
So, while the Hilux may lose out to the L200 and Nissan Navara as far as performance goes, where it matters — in practical load area carry-ing space — the Hilux is the winner. The load bed is wider and longer (now a few millimetres under six feet) than previous Hilux models and the sides are deeper. The payload is 1,085kg with a braked towing capacity of 2,250kg. It will also wade through 27.5-inch deep water — that's mid-thigh for most people!
On-the-road vehicle prices (excluding VAT, as the Hilux is a commercial vehicle) start from £12,145 and range up to £17,245. My test model, the Hilux double cab 4WD in HL3 specification costs £15,745, making it pretty good value for money.
With slightly better engine performance it would give its L200 and Navara competitors a more serious run for their money — I gather that Toyota already have the power issue in hand and a more powerful engine option will be offered fairly soon, which should take care of that. Minus points are few, just the lack of driver's seat height adjust-ment and a rather harsh unladen ride.
On the plus side the Hilux has likeable, conservative styling, it's pleasant to drive and scores with its good interior passenger space and large load area. Standard equipment includes power front windows, electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors, air conditioning, power steering, ABS, front airbags, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, CD/MP3 player, velour upholstery and 15-inch alloy wheels. Expect to see more of them soon on driveways near you. — David Miles
