      I reckon it doesn't matter if you drive a manual or an auto, personal preference

      Bottom line anyone can drive an automatic transmission, manual transmissions require skill which is lacking in modern society.

      Automatic for off-roaders, not because it's "easier" but because manual isn't necessary

      Taction control helps automatic transmission to go downhill.
      So, it's great in both up and down!!!

      When your legs are paralyzed and you have to use hand controls it's a lot easier choice!!!! I mean we have rigged some sketchy systems for me to drive manuals but auto is WAY easier.

      Awesome video! My personal preference is automatic hands down. Would never chose a stick. No matter what terrain or situation.

      After 40 years of driving only manual 4WD's, from small cars to trucks, in recreational and armed forces environments, I was forced to buy an auto 6 years ago as it was the only Prado TDi option available in that particular country. So, I appreciate the differences, but still prefer a manual overall. Incidentally, I have surprisingly found the auto Prado significantly more economic than the identical manual version for highway running, a tribute to their particular box design and computer setup, methinks. Next it would be interesting to test the difference on motorbikes, now that the AfricaTwin is out with DCT! ;-)

      you dont have automatic force in a standard to get rid of that keep youre foot on the break slowly realease the ckutch just till you fell it to start tuging then just switch to the gas petal and continue letting go of the cluctch no roll back you have youre power when you need it

      The iMT technology in the Hilux is pretty good, if you need to change down it matches revs. This is handy in sand, mud and almost anything.

      I don't believe the sand part because I had a 1996 f150 2wd manual and that thing blew through all sand like it was nothing

      Haha I remember when everyone used to say manuals were better off-road. But I always thought the opposite. And now everyone general consensus is the auto is better off-road. Reason finally passed bravado. That's hard to believe.

      In manual both hands are working but auto is just in 1 hand and is easier and i guess it's better than manual but manual is just more fun

      Manual vehicles these days with differential lock features usually come with uphill assistance function that doesn't require stepping on the clutch.
