Navara vs Pathfinder

Is the Navvy just a pathy ute?
And how would you rate them against the same year Paj?

Both the same I reckon, if I wanted a ute, the navara, if I wanted a wagon, then the pathy it would be.

I would love to buy the missus a new pathfinder for her and the kid if I could afford it.

The narava has the same motors as the pathy. The main difference's are the pathy has traction control and independent rear end the narava has live rear axle but not traction control. The pathy versus pajero question. One of the mags tested the last model pajero against the pathy when it was just released and the pajero walked all over it. So I can't see why the new pajero with common rail and a $500 factory fitted locker would not still beat it as the pathy hasn't changed. I think the main reason the pajero beat the pathy was its traction control is better designed and works better offroad.

Ok so he's basically dropped the Pathy from the equation now, so hes looking at earlier model Paj's and Prado's. around 96-2000, something previously driven by a soccer mum that he can throw a few $$$ at to make it a camper tourer, again think basic high country trips.
Pros and Cons?

is he after a diesel or a petrol....pretty sure he'll have one option in the prado, though there's the choice of the 2.7L 4 and the 3.4L V6

3.5L V6 pajero goes quite well, though they do need premium unleaded, and i can't imagine them winning any fuel economy runs either....

i've always been a fan of the 2.8 turbo diesel in the pajero....haven't yet had the chance to sample one, but from what i have read about it it seems to be one of the better four cylinder turbo diesels of the time....

i reckon the prado is the pick of the two for off road ability, though this is mainly cos of the better front wheel travel, in moderate conditions, there's prolly not a lot to separate the two....

Good call, he went with the Prado and picked himself up a 98 V6 with 100K on the clock for a really nice price.

Thanks to all that responded.
