It is a wonderful day when the People Movers are starting to surpass the 200kW barrier! Yes Of course its from Toyota, and yes its the same engine that powers the Toyota Aurion. Firstly, if I may point out, that this new Toyota Tarago 3.5L V6 has more power than a standard Holden VE Commodore and a Ford Falcon. So now that all the Ford and Holden fans have gone, lets continue…
So this is obviously the most powerful people mover, but it is also the most fuel-efficient among its six-cylinder rivals. The new 3.5-litre V6 engine in Tarago has 9.8 per cent more power and at least 5.5 per cent better fuel economy than any other six-cylinder people mover on the market.
So the power figures? Well how does 202kW and peak torque of 340Nm sound? A hell of a lot I know! The V6 averages fuel economy figures of 10.2 litres/100km for the GLi V6 model and 10.3 litres/100km for the GLX and Ultima grades. Of course, this is a V6 people mover, something the consumers have been begging for a long time now!
“Families who need the seating or luggage capacity of Tarago will appreciate the extra power and remarkable fuel economy of the V6. We are also targeting customers such as hotel chains and limousine companies who require a luxury vehicle for transporting valued clientele to and from the airport or on shopping or sightseeing expeditions,” Toyota Australia’s senior executive director sales and marketing David Buttner
