Also in MOTOR (woohoo, I got my subscription copy before the newsagents for once)
AWD to be I6 powered only. No V8!
Standard motor will be the Barra 182 - no surprises there - and MOTOR says the 240kw X6RT motor "....may be offered as an option.......the SOHC 5.4-litre V8 simply does not fit alongside the AWD transfer case."
Now I love the I6 engine comfiguration but I think this is a BIG
mistake. Especially with the rival Holden products (AWD wagon & Cross8 dual cab utes) being V8 powered only when first released!
Your thoughts on this please?
, the young Ford designer credited with styling the BA XR new front end, has been poached by Toyota Australia. What the &%$* is he thinking!
He must be gambling on Toyota Australia securing the 1/2 billion dollar Asia Pacific R&D centre from rival Thailand. No more boring Camry's perhaps?
