Toyota Hilux SR5 2012-2013: What is the best engine?

Asked by Sean

I am looking to buy a 2012/2013 Toyota Hilux SR5 diesel. What is the best engine for fuel economy/problems? What is the average km for the year? What are the average costs for that year? What things should I look for on inspection?

The best engine for economy is the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel. The 4.0-litre V6 is a great engine, but it does consume a fair amount of fuel. In terms of reliability they are much the same. On average they would have done between 100,000 and 150,000 km. Pricewise they would average $28,000-$31,000. The main thing to look for is any sign of hard work or heavy off-road use.
