    Finally, a replacement to the ageing Urvan Estate and Escapade bodies.

    I wonder if this is utilizing the Navarra chassis; hopefully they put in the 2.5L Navarra engine at the least.

    It even has the rims of the Fortuner. :D

    The new NV350 is all new, all original. It chooses the Toyota Hiace as its rival.

    Based sa picture posyed above it looks like its powered by a gasoline engine. Lets hope na pagdaring dito na nwer diesel engine ikabit. Yep, kahit mid boost 144ps yd25 engine will do na.

    Define "all-new".

    Is it still ladder-frame? Yes.

    Is it stilll mid-engined rear-wheel drive? Yes.

    Thus... is it "all new"? Mhmmm.....

    Note... they have extended the wheelbase, so the ladder frame isn't exactly the same... but whether they engineered an all-new ladder chassis, simply modified the existing one or lifted the new boxed ladder from the Navara, we don't know.

    But if it looks like an Urvan and smells like an Urvan, then...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Someone should say this to Toyota. LOL.

    That being said, I prefer the NV3500 over this. It may be ugly for some, but I like it

    Almost the same with toyota hiace, ano kaya ang pagiging basehan kung it would replace the old urvan and estate if some people will use it for business.
