WHAT IT’S GOT Two airbags, anti-lock brakes, leather faced seats, leather wrapped steer­ing wheel, 17-inch al­loy wheels, full-size spare, tyre pres­sure mon­i­tor­ing, key­less en­try, re­mote side win­dows up and down, rear park­ing sen­sors, side steps, cruise con­trol, Blue­tooth. WHAT IT HASN’T Trac­tion con­trol, sta­bil­ity con­trol, side airbags, cur­tain airbags, cam­era, au­to­matic emer­gency brak­ing, blind spot mon­i­tor­ing, tow­bar, ton­neau cover, touch­screen, Ap­ple CarPlay, An­droid Auto. OWN­ER­SHIP No capped price servicing, 6 months/10,000km intervals. WHAT WE LIKED Nice price for qual­ity me­chan­i­cals in a sim­ple, solid and well­made pack­age. Has con­sid­er­able po­ten­tial as an out­back ad­ven­ture truck and the Cum­mins cruises sweetly on the high­way. Good fuel econ­omy too. Tidy han­dling and rea­son­able ride com­fort by one-ton­ner stan­dards. WHAT WE DIDN’T No sta­bil­ity con­trol, cam­era or side/cur­tain airbags is ridicu­lous. You wouldn’t want to have a crash, or carry pas­sen­gers, es­pe­cially your kids. In­fo­tain­ment a decade out of date. Tinny au­dio. Un­sup­port­ive seats. It’s very slow. Weak brakes. Cruise con­trol doesn’t work prop­erly. Short ser­vice intervals.
