    4D56T engine (inline 4 2.5L turbo diesel)
    100 hp*4200 rpm, 245 Nm*2000 rpm
    5 m/t, part time 4wd
    double wishbone front suspension
    leaf spring rear suspension
    no safety features other than seatbelts




    my review:

    ride is arguably the best among diesel pick ups here in the philippines
    interior touches are like that of a car
    engine power is adequate but emits the most visible smoke



    at present, '98 models are priced at more or less 500,000. '00 models could still fetch for above 700,000.

    yup, 245 Nm (Newton-meter) is the torque

    when converted, it would be around 180 lb-ft.

    and yes, it's 4 door and all power.

    sir DSM619,
    this is my everyday ride a 99' Mit Strada (1st Gen), all i can say is that it is realible on everyday abuse, heck i even put it in a test
    when i brought it along with hardcore off roaders in pinatubo mountain ranges,
    handling is great, suspension tops other 4x4s,
    the only problem is the legroom especially at the back.

    stock height, stock everything, i was really surprise on its' power and handling when im with the souped-up 4x4s, di ako na iwan, special dun sa make your own road segment

    on the drawing board
    31x10.5x15 or 30x9.5x15 A/T tires
    manual turbo control- to repower since im upgrading to a bigger tires
    crank up the T-bar

    1st Gen Stradas are competent offroad machines, however there are limitations to modifying it further for better offroad use.

    One is the absence of aftermarket/original lower gears for the t-case or differential. This means, without this you will not run larger diameter tires effectively. Up to 32" in my opinion would be the max.

    Second - The IFS system is notorious for CV and axle breakage. Adding a front diff lock will compound the problem.

    Third - the limited availability of aftermarket parts.

    I am not discouraging you to obtain a Strada, if you should decide to get one. Just keep in mind the points I raised above, and do not envy the others.

    The secret to preserving your vehicle during offroad use is to use recovery equipment and common sense. If the 4x cannot overcome an obstacle stop don't force the issue lest you damage your drive train, use a winch or have yourself towed out.

    FYI - I have actually built the country's tallest Ist Gen Strada - 10 inches higher than stock. 3" body lift, 4.5" Suspension Lift and 35" tires. Unfortunately it's all for show.
