    Wait for the all-new Nissan Navara. I've heard that it is soon to be released this year.

    When was the last time Montero was updated here? Is a Montero bought brand new in 2011 still the current model here in the Ph?

    The Montero Sport was only facelifted twice I think since it was released in 2008. They did revise the engine once to include VGT but that's it. Typically these developing market SUV's (not sold in first world countries like the US and Western Europe) take around 10 years before a new generation comes. The Fortuner is has been the same generation since 2005 so mag 10 years na puro facelift lang. Same engines lang since then except na add ng boost yung 2.5 diesel kasi underpowered dati... The 2.7 gas and the 3.0 diesel has been the same ever since...

    ^^ Just a correction regarding the Fortuner. It is available in Australia, Belgium and the Middle East. Not just as grey imports, but carried by Toyota itself in those markets.

    Yes, it might be available in those countries but, if I may correct Tidus' post, they're not available anywhere in the North American continent. Here we have the 4Runner and Sequoia for Toyota and the Outlander for the Mitsubishi.

    Anyway, this is the first tim I am taking interest (suprisingly) with a truck because of this upcoming specific model from Dearborn. This is just a beauty to behold and I bet, drive.

    Glad we got the 2015 model and didn't wait for the "over-sized CRV 2016".

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    Sorry for the OT:

    Bad news?

    Chevrolet to cease producing Spin, Sonic | Top Gear PH

    Chevrolet PH issues statement on Spin, Sonic discontinuation | Top Gear PH

    ***
    Knowing that Pinoys use cars that are more than 20 years old ('90s Corolla/Civic/Sentra/FX/Crosswind/Pride are still in our streets, maybe thanks to our UVVRP?)

    It will be too risky to get a Sonic/Spin as third party auto supplies might not sell parts later...

    Re: Upcoming Cars

    Hi guys! Question, based on previous model cycles, when will the 2016 Mazda CX5 be released? I'm in the Market for a new car and I'm really liking the CX5 except for dated infotainment interface, I figure I can wait a month or two more.
