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...

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 Landcruiser Prado Kakadu review

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.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute long-term review, report six: farewell

After a few months of hard labour, we're ready to set our 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute free. It's sad to see it go.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

The LandCruiser has always been the company's flagship off-roader. The 200 Series is a monster though, and too big for the city, so we headed for its natural environment – the Aussie bush.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute long-term review, report five: off-road

As we made clear in our load-lugging piece on the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, the thing is a beast when it comes to getting away from the blacktop. I mean, consider this: 70 per cent of these hardcore Toyota trucks are sold in regional areas, and the real percentage of regional users is probably higher than that, because farmers, miners and other customers might have a particular city dealer that they’ve remained loyal to for a while...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute long-term review, report four: towing

You may be more likely to see a horse float or heavy machinery on a trailer behind a 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, but we thought we’d buck the trend and tow a big, brand new boat. The LandCruiser cab-chassis has a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500 kilograms which, on paper, doesn't out-rate a dual-cab Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara, Holden Colorado or Isuzu D-Max...
