1. Nissan Patrol Ti-L - 2832kg
The Nissan 4WD's notoriously hefty thirst is partly attributable to its big 5.6-litre petrol V8 but also an obese kerb weight that tops 2.8 tonnes.
2. Infiniti QX80 - 2783kg
Infiniti’s luxury sibling to the Patrol is almost 50kg trimmer, yet sharing the same platform and V8 ensure the QX80’s plush ride comes at a weighty price.
3. Toyota Landcruiser Sahara TD - 2750kg
Arguably the most Aussie Japanese vehicle on sale, the 200-series ’Cruiser wagon is also one of the most durable. But invincibility comes at a cost, and that cost is 2.7 tonnes.
4. Lexus LX570 - 2740kg
More expensive than the LandCruiser on which its based, dumping diesel in favour of a 5.7-litre petrol V8 has done little to lighten the LX570’s colossal mass. Or thirst.
5. Bentley Mulsanne - 2685kg
Luxury doesn’t come lightly and Bentley’s Mulsanne is a case in point. A whopping 3300mm wheelbase and massive 6.8-litre V8 all add to the, er, portly bottom line.
