The long-running Trooper is popular for its durability, versatility and chunky styling. It's not the most civilised road vehicle, but it's a fine workhorse for agricultural use and for towing.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The long-running Trooper is popular for its durability, versatility and chunky styling. It's not the most civilised road vehicle, but it's a fine workhorse for agricultural use and for towing. Not as nearly as refined as a Range Rover, Grand Cherokee or Shogun, Trooper is very tough and costs considerably less to buy than the opposition. The current range, launched in mid-1998, features the most powerful turbo-diesel engine available in this class of vehicle.

It's not posh and it's not cool, but it's a very effective tool for a tough job.

What owners say...

 Big presence, high driving position, huge load area, simple and spacious cabin, solidly built and screwed together. Feels capable and handles motorway speeds with ease. Frugal engine too given its 2.2...
