Precisely.
I'm not saying the 2.5 NA isn't fun. It is. And it's utterly tough and reliable. I think that's the reason the British Army kept it around for so long, skipping the various iterations of the J block 2.5 Turbo and 200 Tdi as well as all the V8s and jumping straight to the 300Tdi in the Wolf.

If I had a Series truck I'd probably rather have the 2.5 NA in it than any other motor, but if I wanted to run a big tire on a Defender it wouldn't be anywhere near my first choice.
