There are 2WD and 4WD GLX models available, with the choice of single cab-chassis, extra cab-chassis, dual cab-chassis and dual cab pick-up body styles. 

Depending on the body type and drivetrain, prices vary from $22,490 plus on-road costs up to $39,990 plus on-roads. But check the company’s website or Autotrader as you might find better deals.

The petrol version is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder motor doesn’t have a turbocharger, and it produces 94kW (at 5250rpm) and 194Nm (at 4000rpm). There’s a five-speed manual gearbox, and it’s rear-wheel drive only.

There’s the choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a new six-speed automatic (up from the existing five-speed auto), and that’s whether you choose the 4x2 or 4x4 model.
