2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

The LandCruiser has always been the company's flagship off-roader. The 200 Series is a monster though, and too big for the city, so we headed for its natural environment – the Aussie bush.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report five – off-road

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report five – off-road

As we made clear in our load-lugging piece on the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, the thing is a beast when it comes to getting away from the blacktop. I mean, consider this: 70 per cent of these hardcore Toyota trucks are sold in regional areas, and the real percentage of regional users is probably higher than that, because farmers, miners and other customers might have a particular city dealer that they’ve remained loyal to for a while...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report four – towing

You may be more likely to see a horse float or heavy machinery on a trailer behind a 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, but we thought we’d buck the trend and tow a big, brand new boat. The LandCruiser cab-chassis has a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500 kilograms which, on paper, doesn't out-rate a dual-cab Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara, Holden Colorado or Isuzu D-Max...

Highway 1 To Hell - Fastest lap around Australia's Highway 1

Highway 1 To Hell - Fastest lap around Australia's Highway 1

Do you want to beat a world record? That was the thought that embedded itself in Jay Gordon’s psyche and formed the basic outline of his pitch to potential drivers when he recruited friends and family to attempt something pretty absurd: Four guys trapped in a modified Land Cruiser for over 6 days, blazing around Australia on Highway 1, stopping only for fuel, food, and urgent toilet breaks...

Importing Camry rather than producing locally won't dent image, company suggests

The fact that the new 2018 Toyota Camry will be imported from Japan rather than built in Australia like the outgoing model should not have a great impact on sales, which nevertheless are expected to decline in response to the car’s push upmarket. The 2018 Toyota Camry - generation number eight - is a new-from-the-ground-up model with different architecture and fully revised designs outside and in...

Toyota Camry sales to plummet, hybrid targets lion's share

The new-generation Toyota Camry is billed as a significant step away from tradition, designed to be sold on looks, tech and dynamics as much as comfort, reliability and value. This shift — along with the possible subtext of higher pricing, and the continued decline in mid-sized car sales across the board in favour of SUVs — means Toyota Australia expects a “dramatic” sales reduction, albeit one that should keep it market leader...
