    RE: My vote? Haha... it's a no-vote. Yung sinasabi ko lang, power is relative, and your boss will probably never rev high enough to tap all that power. Of course, being a power freak, I would actually rev its nuts off... the two days I had a Fortuner 3.0, I spent 1000 pesos on diesel...

    I'd personally go for either vehicle... I like them both.

    If it is for commercial use, just choose the one with the biggest bed. Both units are making almost double the power of most Elf-type trucks already.

    Personally, I'd take the DMax because of the dark colored interior. Hindi madaling madumihan especially kung pang-negosyo.

    Thanks for all your inputs.
    By the way, ano ba ang consumption ng Hi-lux 3.0 AT? Dmax AT gets a little over 8km/li sa city driving and 12km/l sa highway. I thought mas CRDi engines are more economical?

    Niky,
    You need to get a Jet Plane bro. hehe. Thanks for the info and the inputs.

    Otep,
    Pinipilit ko nga magstrada but the bed size just isnt enough for him.

    As per C! Magazine's tests, the Hi-Lux can do 6.8 km/li in City and highways it can do 13.3 km/li. For comparison, a 3.0 Fortuner can 8 km/li mixed city and highway.
