Land Cruiser 701

How popular is the Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series? Australians have bought more than 250,000 units during the past 30 years in single and double cabute (pickup), and wagon and troop carrier body styles.

This versatile workhorse is an off-road legend with its tough box-section chassis, simple part-time 4WD system with two-speed transfer, lockable hubs, low-range gearing, long-range fuel tanks and excellent ground clearance.

long-running truck out to pasture, Toyota Australia plans to release improved models in the fourth quarter of this year. Its engineers have subjected the Land Cruiser 70 Series upgrade to more than “100,000 km of testing” in some of the harshest conditions around Australia.

About 70 percent of the testing was conducted in off-road conditions, including everything from corrugated dirt roads to rugged cattle properties with severe washouts.

Toyota Australia says that local testing and evaluation, which focused on the best-selling single cab-chassis, will help make the new vehicle even stronger due to the adoption of a stiffer new frame with thicker side rails, while reducing vibration and reportedly improving handling and stability.
