Buying and modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series

It’s old, it’s overpriced, it’s slow and it’s thirsty. It’s also expensive, awful in traffic, and come to think of it, not exactly great on the highway either. It’s also a legend in its own right, and regularly outsells some of the cheaper, faster, safer and more efficient competition out there. It’s the Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series, in double cab format...

2018 Toyota Prado GX review

While the GXL is the quintessential go-to for so many Prado buyers, there's also the entry-grade GX manual as an option for those on a tighter budget.

2018 Toyota Prado GXL review

The Prado GXL has always been the pick of the range, and in 2018 it still represents excellent, hard-to-argue buying for the family needing a large SUV.

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Kakadu towing review

In 2017, the Toyota Prado was the biggest-selling large SUV in Australia, with nearly 16,000 finding new homes. Its off-roading abilities are legendary. The Prado sits comfortably in the LandCruiser family, and that badge alone leaves 4WD tracks in a quivering mess. However, most are bought simply as a vehicle to drop off or pick up the kids at school...

2018 Toyota Prado Kakadu review

The facelifted 2018 Toyota Prado Kakadu is finally here and it now comes with extra towing capacity (3000kg), a new face and a revised interior. But, at 2500kg, is the Prado getting a bit big for its boots? Paul Maric finds out.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

See the full article here. As far as updates go, the few that have been added to the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GXL are very much low key. The GXL now comes with DAB+, an updated audio interface and steering wheel audio controls? You want more? Well, there isn’t any…...

Toyota SUV comparison: Fortuner v Kluger v Prado

Read the full article here. We’re always amazed at just how many SUVs Toyota seems to sell, and there’s good reason for that – people know the brand, know the reputation, and know they’ve got options to choose from. Keeping that in mind, we decided to amass three of the Japanese brand’s seven-seat SUVs to put them to the test: the Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Kluger, and Toyota LandCruiser Prado...

Toyota to axe LandCruiser V8

By Joshua Dowling and Paul Maric The iconic Toyota LandCruiser V8 is nearing the end of the road, with well-placed sources claiming the next generation 300 Series will have a choice of V6 turbo-diesel and V6 turbo petrol power when it goes on sale in late 2021 – before eventually being joined by a V6 hybrid a few years later...

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

One month after purchasing our brand-new LandCruiser 200 Series Sahara, we hitched a caravan and embarked on a four-week trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre. The Sahara was amazing in the way it towed the three-tonne caravan. It was both the towing ease and, more importantly, the weight of the Sahara itself that kept the caravan very stable in every situation...

2013 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

Why did I buy a Toyota Prado? Let’s address the elephant in the room to begin: it wasn’t for the badge or the price. Everyone knows that Toyotas by nature are overpriced. So why did I buy it then? Seven seats, lots of cabin space, comfy seats, economical engine and reliable off-road abilities...

2015 Toyota Landcruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Overall, the Landcruiser 200 provides the rugged and robust design Toyota is well known for. The 4.5-litre V8 provides grunt whenever required, perfect for when towing a heavy load, although the turbos give a little lag when punching the accelerator. For the size of the Landcruiser the engine provides relatively economical fuel consumption, whether it be city or highway driving...

2003 Toyota LandCruiser GXL (4x4) review

This a totally awesome vehicle. It's excellent for long trips with great comfort and plenty of power. I picked mine up second-hand with 300,000 kms on the clock and she still drives like a new car. It has a had a suspension upgrade as well as a three-inch exhaust. The 1HDFTE is an awesome motor, very reliable and with heaps of grunt...
