    Yung Navara din, mabilis.

    Speed-wise : Toss up ng Navara vs. Strada VGT talaga.

    Pero sa ground clearance, talo yung Navara.

    Depends on where you live and what your intended purpose for the truck is. The 3.2L would be better for hauling applications and has more low end grunt unlike the 2.5VGT which has most of its power concentrated on the top end. The 3.2L would also be better if you want to go the tuning route as it has more performance potential. Otherwise, get the 2.5VGT which should also give you better fuel mileage.

    Have you tested both 2.5 VGT and 3.2? From the top of my mind, i'd lean towards the larger displacement 3.2L especially if they're giving generous discounts for it.

    Their giving additional 50k discount on the 3.2 variant. One stock left nalang sa q.ave and its red. The plus with the 2.5vgt is the multimedia system which consists of gps,dvd,touch screen multi info display and built in indash that makes it looks clean. Invecs 5 speed transmission is also given on the 2.5vgt unlike the 4speed AT for the 3.2l. Im also thinking of the bigger displacement but does having a invecs 5 speed is a plus? With the entertainment package or the 2.5vgt,I can live without. It boils down if its with te 3.2l 4 speed or 2.5vgt 5 speed tranny.

    I'll be leaning towards the 2.5L since I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be putting you down in terms of power since it already has VGT. I am pretty sure too that it will be more efficient as it has 5-gears and lesser displacement.

    Torque wise, the VGT wins. 350Nm compared to 343.35Nm of the 3.2L Strada
    Power wise, the VGT still wins. 178Ps compared to 160ps of the 3.2L Strada

    -hill descent control (this will be nice after experiencing a matic suv going downhill coming from a table top, napunta b**ls ko sa lalamunan heheheh)
    -Hll hold control
    now wait lang the price. pero according to vinj, the TS will not mind the price.:D

    I overlooked the 5-speed a/t of the VGT versus the 4-speed of the 3.2... with that, the 2.5 VGT seems to have the edge already.
