Car reviews - Toyota - LandCruiser - 100 Series GXV 5-dr wagon


Toyota's LandCruiser 100 Series featured the luxury GXV model

17 May 2002

SUDDENLY, diesels are becoming the in thing - even BMW and Audi are introducing oil burners to their X5 and Allroad off-roader ranges. But as the newcomers flock in, they will have to take on four-wheel drive stalwarts like Toyota's LandCruiser GXV. In late 2000 Toyota changed its top-spec 100-Series from petrol V8 to turbo-diesel power as it endeavoured to give the ultra-luxury - but also fundamentally Cruiser V8 - Lexus LX470 sales room in the market. Turbo-diesel may sound less sexy but the end result is a beast with good manners, manageable fuel consumption and even more suitability for serious off-road work.
Model release date: 1 October 2000 to 1 September 2002

The LandCruiser is perhaps the most recognisable large 4WD in Australia. The 1992 version brought some sophistication to the petrol engines with a new 158kW 24-valve inline six-cylinder. An impressive 118kW turbo-diesel was also offered. If a big 4WD is what you need, this is it.
