The 79 Series LandCruisers of the Melbourne 4X4 Show

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

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...

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.
