The legend of two LandCruisers and a home-made float

There is a small-ish shed in the land behind Norm Needham’s house, which looks unassuming enough from the outside. Step inside however, and you’re greeted not by a workshop, but bunk beds, a couch and a fireplace. Most noticeably, the walls are loaded with 4WDing memorabilia...

2019 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL review

Toyota's perennial golden goose continues to dominate the sales charts, amongst plenty of updated competition. Is it still the smart choice?

A quick drive in Norweld's heavily modified Toyota 79 Series LandCruiser

If you're the man running sales and marketing at Norweld, one of Australia’s better known tray and canopy manufacturers, chances are you aren’t going to leave your Toyota 79 Series LandCruiser stock. In fact, there’s a fair chance you are going to throw the kitchen sink at it...

BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM3 Tyre review

Why go to the effort and expense of removing your standard 4WD tyres for some new ones? Because they're better. Not in every sense, but in the ones that count. After a big few days getting an ARB GVM upgrade, bullbar and winch, along with the Norweld tray and canopy installed onto our 2018 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series, it wasn't long until it was booked in to Solve Offroad in western Sydney, the preferred dealers and specialists in BFGoodrich tyres...

2019 Volkswagen Touareg v Toyota LandCruiser Prado comparison

There's a new Touareg in town, so we thought it would be worth sizing up the new VW with the number-one best-selling large SUV in Australia, the Toyota LandCruiser Prado. While it’s around $6000 more expensive off the bat, not excluding the significant 10-grand bump in options, the Touareg does pack a lot of punch for the money...

Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 4

The 79's infotainment is somewhere between awful and non existent. You get a very basic double DIN source unit and two awful dash speakers, and that's it. So Trent Nikolic paid a visit to Automotive Superstore in Sydney's North-West suburbs for audio / visual upgrades on the Landcruiser 79.

Toyota Australia has issued a recall for 22,971 of its LandCruiser 70 Series models built between 13 June 2016 and 5 November 2018 due to an increased risk of fire.

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...

1992 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Fifteen years ago, I decided to become a bald nomad and that I needed a vehicle to tow a 7.2-metre Euro caravan, which I was in the process of buying. I researched what would be suitable in the four-wheel wheel drive category, and the Toyota 80 series stood out as a super-reliable and capable vehicle, especially the turbo diesel model...

1999 Toyota Landcruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

I always had a strong bias against 4WDs. Having grown up in the country, they were everywhere, so I knew how good they were, but I always thought that they’d be woefully out of place in anywhere more urban than the back of Woop-Woop...

2003 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Once I realised my little 2001 WRX was no longer cutting the mustard as a "family car", I had some very hard and long thinking to do. I needed something bigger. I needed something a little more kid friendly. I needed something that I could still entertain myself and my daughter with on weekends. I needed something that wasn’t boring...

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...
