Fancy yourself an over-the-top version of the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser workhorse? Well, KHANN Car Design has just that for you. Based on the J200 facelift model, this Land Cruiser is called the KHANN HRS Sport, and nothing about it is subdued. This aggressive bodykit is comprised of five standard items, starting with the intricately chiselled front bumper with integrated grille, LED daytime running lights and a new rear bumper with twin-tip carbon-fibre exhaust exits. The vented hood, rear spoiler and huge forged wheels (available in three designs) are optional. As you might have guessed, the upgrade pack only comes with visual enhancements, so no changes have been made to the mechanical aspect. In stock form, the Land Cruiser comes with a 4.6 litre naturally-aspirated V8 that makes 304 hp and 439 Nm, whereas the 4.5 litre bi-turbo diesel V8 packs 268 hp and 650 Nm. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a full time 4×4 drive mechanism. In the US, … [Read more...] about KHANN unveils wild bodykit for Toyota Land Cruiser

‘Rode hard and put away wet’ seems to be an apt description of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe FJ80. You’ll have to have to decide if its price makes the somewhat rough appearance excusable. You know, if instead of all-things-auto, this confluence of crazies focused exclusively on the products of Japan’s second largest automaker we would most likely be known as ‘Nismodo.’ Of course we don’t and so we’re not. Nope, Jalopnik it is, although in consolation we did look yesterday at a 2013 Nissan 370Z Nismo. That sports car was eerily similar in both form and and function to the BMW coupe that came just a day before, and at $27,995 it was in spitting distance of the Bimmer’s asking. Just like Tuesday’s Z4, it went down, although in the case of the Z with a slightly less atrocious 63-percent Crack Pipe vote. The more things change, the more they stay sorta the same. One thing that always seems a constant is the fact that the … [Read more...] about At $2,950, This 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser Could Have You Cruising The Land In No Time.
If I have one single complaint about the Lexus GX (and there is ONLY ONE), it’s that it’s too... Lexus-y. Toyota, amazingly, seems to agree with my dumb opinions. That’s why the world now has this thing, the Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Commercial, complete with a diesel engine, a six-speed manual and not much else. Despite have the words “Land Cruiser” right there in the name, this thing isn’t really the same Land Cruiser that we get in the U.S. Instead, it’s based on a slightly smaller SUV, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which Toyota then swaddles in a bunch of leather, chrome bits, and wheels, and sells over here as the Lexus GX460. But despite the fact that essentially the same car is already sold over here, it’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever get this thing. Probably because it’s too good. Did I mention it comes in two-door short-wheelbase form? BLAM. And while you can plainly see that Toyota has vastly upgraded the … [Read more...] about The Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Is The Basic Stripped-Out Diesel Manual SUV Of Your Dreams
To compete with Land Rover Range Rover or Cadillac Escalade, the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser must get a facelift. That is exactly what the Japanese company plans. While fans get used to this model, a new generation will appear, and it will be the major move in the last couple of years for Toyota LC. Changes will include interior and exterior updates, revisit of the engine room, few new exterior colors, and possibly, a diesel engine. Nevertheless, we won’t see this one in the US, but other markets. All in all, the luxurious market of big SUVs will be pretty interesting next season. 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Redesign Dimensions of the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser are not changing. However, the front fascia could see some updates, such as headlights shape or bumper size. Big wheels are a highlight on the side. Also, this SUV will suffer some modifications on the rear end. After 2020, when the new generation appears, we will see the complete overhaul. Inside, the 2019 Land Cruiser is already … [Read more...] about 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Redesign, Changes, Specs
The Toyota Land Cruiser is an original SUV and one of the most enduring nameplates in autodom. It gets little advertising or marketing promotion, and you seldom see an old one with a for-sale sign. But a recent online perusal found an '87 with an asking price of $23,000; other listings were up to $30,000.A Land Cruiser becomes a family heirloom and is more likely to be passed down as inheritance before it gets handed down to the next 16-year-old driver in the family. It has a thriving off-road and overland community, but often when you see a family Cruiser, it is a stock example. Its credentials are built in and the rest does not need embellishment.It is the most expensive Toyota vehicle and, not surprising, almost the slowest seller at around a consistent 250 units a month, give or take 100. Only the Mirai fuel cell hybrid and Yaris hatchback sells in smaller numbers, both recently at around 200 a month.This big Cruiser-bruiser is sold around the world in several body styles and … [Read more...] about 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser: An heirloom original
The Toyota Land Cruiser has been manufactured for 67 years, and it’s geared toward a niche audience of SUV buyers seeking ruggedness and off-road durability. It’s the second-largest and oldest vehicle in the manufacturer’s lineup. For 2018, the Land Cruiser remains much the same as last year. It seeks a market share with the Land Rover Discovery, Lexus LX 570 and Lincoln Navigator in the behemoth SUV category. The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is as rugged as any SUV. All images © James Raia/2018 The auto industry’s gas guzzlers are the easiest segment to dismiss. How can anyone justify an $87,000 SUV that averages 13 and 18 miles per gallon respectively in city and highway driving? For the few thousand Toyota Land Cruiser buyers each year, the answer is simple: They know what they want and don’t have to justify their purchases. An eight-passenger luxury SUV, the Land Cruiser is offered in only a fully loaded trim. It’s operated with a 5.7-liter V8 … [Read more...] about 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser: luxury, power, gas sucker
SUV vs UTE: Which is the best weekend warrior? One of the questions people regularly ask is, should I buy a Toyota Land Cruiser or a dual-cab Hilux. Land Cruiser and Hilux are best-selling models in their respective segments. That is why the SUV vs. dual-cab UTE question pops up most frequently. We’ve chosen the Land Cruiser and Hilux for comparison. On the Road An S5R Hilux with a 2.8-liter 4-cylinder diesel yields slightly less power. The engine records 130kW and 450Nm. The Land Cruiser model comes with a 5.7-liter V8 engine that yields 381 HP. Utes have a resilient chassis and a tray for carrying loads. They can afford a lot of space compared to an SUV. If you remove the rear-row-seats from a Land Cruiser, you will get about 1200mm of length from the back of middle-row-seats to the tailgate. The dual-cab Hilux tray has a diameter of approximately 1600mm. You are likely to store your most extensive drawer systems in it and still have enough space for a water tank. Truck-like … [Read more...] about Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Toyota Hilux – which one is the best weekend warrior?
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. They obviously didn’t want to be left behind by the design boost that archrival Patrol received, especially in this market where sixty years of prizefighting can’t just come to an empty-quarter! Stance and style The Land Cruiser has always been imposing. … [Read more...] about Toyota Land Cruiser 2016: First impression
That Toyota sells way more Land Cruisers to the United Nations and NGOs than it does in the UK tells you a reasonable amount of what you need to know about its big 4x4. The new Land Cruiser remains a body-on-frame off-roader, capable of towing three braked tonnes and equipped - in the UK, anyway - with a 2.8-litre diesel engine of only four cylinders. That only makes 177hp, but also 331lb ft, so it isn't fast, but it can haul. It is, then, all it has recently been; the default choice, worldwide, for those who need what it can offer: off-road approach, breakover and departure angles on a par with a Land Rover Discovery, a low-range set of gears, a 700mm wading depth and the kind of reliability and durability that makes Toyota the dominant vehicle manufacturer in places that don't have shiny premium dealerships and where they value cars that don't trouble the warranty. What's new now, then? The body/chassis combo is 11 per cent stiffer than it was, the suspension - double-wishbones at … [Read more...] about 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser: Driven
Toyota has taken the wraps off the 2018 Land Cruiser Prado at the Auto Expo. The baby Land Cruiser will be launched in India this year and will come in three new colours – Blackish Ageha, Avant-Garde Bronze and Vintage Brown Pearl apart from the existing White Pearl, Silver Metallic, Grey Metallic, Attitude Black Metallic and Red Mica Metallic. Expect a considerable bump in the prices of the Land Cruiser Prado. The 2018 iteration of the Toyota Prado features revised exterior. To start off with the design and looks, there is a huge (actually massive) grille up front that immediately catches your attention. While the hood gets minor tweaks, there is a new projector headlight setup with LED DRLs and a new bumper with new fog lamps housing. Side profile remains identical to the previous car while the rear gets new LED tail-lights. The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado features a completely revamped cabin. The all-black dashboard (you can also opt for Natural Beige and Redwood) is all … [Read more...] about 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Showcased At Auto Expo
