What's on this page

Toyota Landcruiser

The Toyota LandCruiser is one of the best-known and most popular large 4WDs in Australia, thanks to a reputation for reliability and off-road ability.

Launched locally in 1960, the LandCruiser first appeared as a fairly spartan, off-road tool. The LandCruiser was split into two distinct lines in 1967, with one remaining a no-nonsense and utilitarian, and the other pursuing a more luxurious, passenger-oriented design. These days, they’re known as the 70 Series and 200 Series respectively, with both still dedicated to the same principles as half a century ago. The 70 Series is available as a single cab and dual-cab chassis, as well as a wagon and the larger Troop Carrier wagon. The 200 Series is available as a large wagon-style SUV only, but ranges in specification from a comparatively basic off-roader to a luxurious Range Rover alternative.

Current prices range from $54,090 for the Land Cruiser PRADO GX (4x4) to $129,000 for the Land Cruiser LC200 SAHARA HORIZON SE (4x4).

This vehicle is also known as Toyota Land Cruiser.

Toyota Land Cruiser Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Land Cruiser here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Toyota LandCruiser 2016:

    I don’t think this is an isolated problem, Andrea, as I’ve heard of exactly the same thing happening to other 200-Series Toyotas. From the look of things, this type of recurring limp-home-mode problem with the LandCruiser is usually down to one of three things.

    The first is a damaged or faulty stepper motor which controls both the throttle and the variable vanes on the turbocharger. Sometimes the vanes can become stuck, refuse to budge and burn out the stepper motor’s electronics in the process. If there’s a problem with any of those components, the stepper motor – at the very least -t will need to be replaced. The advice there is to use the genuine Toyota part, not a cheaper copy.

    The second possibility is a fault with the EGR valve, and the third is a faulty accelerator pedal which, unlike older cars, does not connect via a cable to the throttle, but ends an electronic signal to the car’s computer. Any glitch here can send the car into limp-home. The fact that you’ve had problems while in cruise control makes me suspect either the accelerator or stepper motor, so they’d be the components I’d be checking first. For what it’s worth, I reckon the police-scanner explanation is a load of rubbish.

  • Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series: What is the height of the running board?

    Here’s a figure you won’t find on the specification sheet on the brochure. The internet is no help either, so I took my trusty tape-measure around to a Toyota dealership and worked it out old-school. The answer is 400mm (40cm) but that’s for a standard vehicle. Bigger tyres and lifted suspension will throw that into a cocked hat.

  • Toyota Land Cruiser 2014: Is this a good car to buy second-hand?

    I’ll take a punt here and suggest that the $55,000 price was the trade-in value at a Toyota dealership. Certainly, it’s about what a dealer would offer as a trade-in on a new LandCruiser, so it’s a good deal at that money.

    The best thing you can do is sit your mate down, look him in the eye and get honest answers about how the vehicle has been used and what condition it’s in. This was a relatively early example of the turbo-diesel V8 and while they improved as Toyota made running changes, the early engines were known to burn a bit of oil. After his years of ownership, your pal should be well aware of things like that, so get some straight answers.

    If it checks out, that’s great, but you’d still want to have a contingency budget for repairs as these were complex machines, and even jobs like replacing the starter motor (which lives up under the inlet manifold on these V8s) can cost a motzah to complete. That said, I love the idea that the vehicle has done mostly highway kilometres and that it’s never been off road. Seriously, that’s the second-hand LandCruiser you want to buy.

  • Toyota Land Cruiser 1998: What is the towing power of this car?

    By 1998, the LandCruiser had gained bigger brakes and a bigger wheel and tyre combination, making these later versions the best for towing. Pre-1995 versions were limited to towing 2500kg, but the upgrade took that limit to 3500kg which is still competitive even today. The transmission makes no difference to this limit.
