It is a car that is very useful for off road or higher than usual level of loss. The engine uses diesel and has two large tanks useful for long journeys.
It's a very off road friendly car which is useful for farm life. This particular model seldom needs repairs to be done to it making it a more valuable less stressful car. The engine noise used to be the most manly in my childhood making it somewhat popular to friends despite not being fancy. The pulling force of these older models is needed and envied when there is a lot of cargo or heavy cargo.
