Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series dual cab 2016 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7
Ride, handling and NVH seemed to have improved on the dual-cab, even though the bulk of this upgrade was concentrated on the top-selling single-cab.

The latest raft of changes to the 70 Series range has meant that even though the 70 Series dual cab / TroopCarrier and Wagon models remain untested/unrated by ANCAP, they now have a stack of electronic gear aimed at making the drive experience safer for drivers and passengers.

Across the range, the safety pack includes vehicle stability control, active traction control, hill-start assist control, brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution and more.

Cruise control is now standard on all 70 Series models; aircon is not – it’s a $2761 option.

The interior is basic but easy to spend time in as everything is laid out simply, and surfaces, fabrics, and seats somehow feel more welcoming than before. WorkMates have grey vinyl interior trim; GXL grades get the fabric.

Ride, handling and NVH seemed to have improved on the dual-cab, even though the bulk of this upgrade was concentrated on the top-selling single-cab.

The great 4.5-litre turbo-diesel engine (151kW@3400rpm and 430Nm@1200-3200rpm) has been tweaked for improved performance and fuel consumption, a claimed 10.7L/100km (combined). Its five-speed manual transmission has a taller second and fifth gear so taking off and smooth highway cruising are the norm, rather than the exception.

The dual cab has a touring-friendly 130-litre fuel tank. It is rated to tow 750 (unbraked) and 3500kg (braked).

Its off-roading ability has never been questioned, but that hasn’t stopped Toyota investing in five years and 100,000km of Aussie torture testing. The bush legend lives on with its reputation intact.
