The Land Cruiser is fresh and new; here in time for the greater outdoor season. The legendary dune basher that boasts Toyota reliability is keeping pace with time through a brand new 8-speed transmission, a wireless charging pad, a highly practical interior configuration that Toyota calls a ‘life control layout’ and the Toyota Safety Sense P. Since the first BJ models landed in 1955, Al Futtaim Motors have sold more than 320,000 Toyota Land Cruisers in the UAE. It is more like a page from the history of this land, but the latest edition couldn’t have come early enough. Even though I didn’t think the Land Cruiser itself was crying out loud for change, the formidable SUV’s ardent fans have been.

As Americans, we ask a lot out of our family vehicles. But none exerts itself harder than the full-size, three-row SUV. These seven- and eight-seat SUVs are tasked with shuttling family members to school, jobs, and sports practice during the week. On the weekend, these workhorses support our hobbies—from towing horses or boats on trailers to taking us down remote two-tracks to our favorite hiking or hunting spots. While we play, they work even harder.Because of the honeydew lists we place upon these big family SUVs, manufacturers build ’em tough.

On top of the usual criteria—you know, driving, riding, and handling, plus the ability to comfortably swallow at least seven passengers and their cargo, all without breaking the bank—we’re also going to ask our trucks to tow a … [Read more...] about Beasts of Burden: Ford Expedition vs. Chevrolet Tahoe vs. Dodge Durango vs. Toyota Sequoia vs. Nissan Armada
After disappearing from the lineup for 2018, the Toyota Tundra‘s off-road-oriented TRD Pro trim level is back with a vengeance for 2019. It, along with the 2019 Tacoma and 4Runner TRD Pro models, gets a few notable mechanical updates including new shocks, revised springs, and new wheels as well as some visual updates inside and out similar to those bestowed on other Tundra models last year.The headliners for the 2019 TRD Pro’s suspension changes are new Fox 2.5-inch front and rear internal-bypass shocks, while new springs provide an additional 1.5 inches of wheel travel in the front and 2.0 inches in the rear. New 18-inch BBS five-spoke wheels are said to reduce unsprung mass and are wrapped in Michelin all-terrain tires.

Look out yonder at that landscape, and you’ll spot a a trio of Toyotas camped out in the wilderness. They’re the latest off-road-ready variants of Toyota’s Tundra and Tacoma pickups and 4Runner SUV, and they’re headed for the Chicago auto show early next month.Although Toyota has yet to formally specify the deal with the trucks, it’s safe to assume they’re updated TRD Pros. The Tacoma and 4Runner are currently offered in TRD Pro guise, but the Tundra version has been on hiatus. Besides wearing model-specific bodywork, both the 2018 Tacoma TRD Pro and the 2018 4Runner TRD Pro come equipped with boulder-bashing stuff that includes a thick front skid plate, specially tuned suspensions, and knobby tires.It’s possible that the updated TRD Pros will kick things up a couple of notches to elevate into the space occupied by the hard-core Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and its … [Read more...] about Toyota Probably Readying Updated TRD Pro Off-Roaders
