      Except they don't tell you how much, eh? I'd love to replace my previous generation T4 with one of these but the price of entry for the 4motion version gets very little change from AU$60,000 once you've driven out the dealers door (dealer delivery is roughly 2.5K, import duty is 5%). The AU$ and the US$ are essentially at parity at the moment.

      This gets you a commercial vehicle trim level (rubber floors and acres of plastic) but is well featured with A/C and cruise control as standard...

      Would the land of cheap, big engined body on frame pickups really spend this sort of $$$ for a moncoque pickup with a 2 litre diesel engine? I think not.

      Your comment is well taken, however, I have a friend in the U.K. that had a Dodge / Cummins pick-up shipped to him in a "sea can "'........I would rather have ''moncoque pickup with a 2 litre diesel engine"....to each there own, Tom
