2018 Toyota Landcruiser Prado Kakadu review

Toyota has updated the Landcruiser Prado, but are the changes for the better? Paul Maric finds out...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Altitude review

The 2017 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Altitude sees some added kit over the GXL model upon which it is based, but it isn't as value-packed as it perhaps should be.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report six – farewell

After a few months of hard labour, we're ready to set our 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute free. It's sad to see it go.

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

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...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series Workmate single-cab review

Aside from the moon, there's nowhere the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series won't go. Paul Maric slips behind the wheel of the entry-level to see whether Toyota is having a lend, or whether it's worth the money.

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...

Highway 1 to Hell: A mid-trip update, hauling around Australia

Hauling our way across Australia, here we have an update delivered between interrupted sleeps and stints behind the wheel, as we make our attempt at setting a new record for circumnavigating Australia's big island by car. Marlow, the narrator and main character in Joseph Conrad's heart of darkness describes traversing a serpentine Congolese jungle river as traveling back in time the deeper into the unknown you go...

Highway 1 to Hell: Circumnavigating Australia in one week

National Highway 1 is the Aussie Everest. We’ve got big pineapples, big prawns, big bananas and big guitars that get all the hype, but rarely does anyone mention the big-arse highway that circumnavigates the country. It’s widely considered the longest* highway in the world, taking you 14,500 km from Sydney to Brisbane, Cairns, Katherine, Port Hedland, Perth, Esperance, Adelaide, Melbourne and back to Sydney in one trip...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review long-term report three – load lugging

Sometimes you have to load in a lot of stuff. It could be a large volume of stuff, or a big mass of stuff. Either way, the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute is made for it. We wanted to find out just how well our 79 Series cab-chassis dealt with stuff, so we, er, stuffed it with a few different things. First up was a pallet of ballast from our mates over at Crown Forklifts...
