2020 Toyota LandCruiser 76 Series GXL review

A true legend of the Australian automotive landscape, and still enduringly popular. Is the LandCruiser 76 Series a smart or logical choice for four-wheel drivers?

2020 Toyota Prado review: Kakadu Horizon

The 2020 Toyota Prado Kakadu Horizon adds some extra trim to the already highly specified Kakadu, but is it too much? James Ward takes a look on- and off-road to see if we have passed peak-Prado.

2020 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Sahara review

Is Toyota's 4x4 king of the hill finally over the hill? We take a top-spec Sahara to find out.

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.

We'd wager a bet that the 79 Series LandCruiser is the most modified vehicle in Australia.

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 4

There are many things the 2018 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series does well. Audio, satellite navigation, Bluetooth clarity, phone connectivity and smartphone integration - those features we bundle under the term 'infotainment' in other words - are not among them. Not even on the consideration set as a matter of fact. The 79's infotainment is somewhere between awful and non existent...

Buying and Modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 3

While 4x4 utes need no introduction to the Australian automotive landscape these days, tastes are changing. Once upon a time, the only guys who were fitting trays to their 4WDs were folks needing to shift hay bales and pallets around the place, and a simple flat bed of steel or timber was often the easiest and best solution...

Buying and modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 2

Why pull out new suspension and spend your own hard-earned money to replace it with some aftermarket gear? Good question, right? The answer comes down to customisation, and setting up your vehicle to perform well where it counts. While the standard suspension system of the LandCruiser is quite stout and a decent performer, there is definite room for improvement...
