Toyota LandCruiser V8 dead: yet another report spells the end of an icon

Read it and weep, Toyota LandCruiser V8 fans. Yet another report claims Toyota is well progressed with plans to phase out V8 petrol and diesel power for its heavy duty four-wheel-drives globally. And yes, tragically, that includes the next generation Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, and any updates to the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series workhorses. All of them are likely to get V6 turbo diesel power and/or a V6 petrol hybrid option; none of this has yet been confirmed.
