    Nice to see they were able to undercut the RAM prices even while being converted at the same factory. Hopefully they mean good business for HSV and GM.

    Wait until the down under dwellers wake up. They will tell you why this is not a great truck.

    Not exactly a typical Aussie ute is it - great it certainly is, price-wise and dimensionally anyway.

    I doubt any Australian will argue it is not a good truck.

    But hand on heart would you pay at least $10k more for the base model 2500 than what Americans pay for a top of the range 3500? Is it really that good ?

    At that price it will have a small market and the people who buy them will love them, but it is too big for most. A Colorado or Ranger is the biggest vehicle most people consider.

    That's a loaded question if I ever heard one. You're asking us if we'd pay a price that's different than another price somewhere else in the world? That doesn't make any sense. Seems to me, it's priced well. It's cheaper than the competition, what more can you ask for?

    You don't seem to understand how this works. In this country, not everyone buys the HD either. The only ones buying it are those who work for a living, or those that play hard. I suspect it will be the same in your country.

    Yup, They are really the size of an Isuzu NPR with the Torque of a Semi and the horsepower of a Corvette. They are not cheap in the states either. But add the cost of RHD conversion, and it becomes an expensive proposition. These should not be thought of as Hilux alternatives. They are completely different.

    They also pack the technology of an S Class.. in top trims.

    Not disagreeing with anything you say. But as the direct competition has never been sold here either, being cheaper than an also unproven competition in the market does not really mean much. The market for vehicles of any type north of $130K is very small, so success for this vehicle will most likely be measured in hundreds of annual sales, not thousands.

    Do a build and price on the respective US trucks and you'll see that HSV has
    between US$40K-US$60K cost for delivery and conversion on low to high series

    God how I wish Ford still sold Factory RHD F250 in our country

    Glad to oblige!

    Good for towing, yes. But it's a one-trick pony.

    Because otherwise, apart from being a rolling testament to conspicuous consumption - and bad taste, what else is this "great truck" especially good at? Or for? Not much that I can see.

    Eg; for private use the 2500 Pickup is an impractical ego-driven joke.

    In its other pretence as a supposed work truck, it is in the main - and there's no other term for it - disfunctional.

    After being on the hunt for a dual cab over the last few months I have to admit to being thoroughly underwhelmed by the entire range from all manufacturers. In all honesty the tow capacities are at best a slight of hand by a few when you consider the GCM. For a work/tradesman truck these will be hard to go past although I am interested to see what capacities the 1500's are likely to have.

    For a non-work type situation there are other options out there much better suited. If you do need something huge the 200 Landcruiser is hard to beat.

    I am lost, what is a tradesman truck? Is the 200 Land Cruiser the Land Cruiser 70?

    Tradesman. Noun. Someone who works in the trades. Ex: Electrician, Carpenter, Plumber, etc. The aforementioned "someone who works for a living".
