I rate the best as the Isuzu D-Max (called Rodeo in UK) from 2008 with the 2.5 or 3.0 I-TEQ engine. Nice, ambly diesel engine. Lovely 5-speed gearshift. and we got 40mpg out of out 2WDs. (Also sold as the Chevrolet Colorado.) 4WD and Hi-Lander had torsion bar front suspension. 2WD standard models had front wishbones and coils, but no limited slip diff and they really need that for driving on dirt roads with no load.
