The world is filled with all sorts of capable and interesting cars, all ferrying us humans from A to B and back again. WRONG. There is only one car. It is the 1990s Toyota Land Cruiser FJ80.
The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has placed an order for militarized Toyota Land Cruisers, Hiluxes and Ford Rangers to use as low-profile but battle-survivable field vehicles. That’s provided the prototypes pass muster in military evaluations, of course.
Face it, the hipsters won. All things quaint and ironically archaic are now universally cool and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. Case in point: this tin Toyota is the sexiest thing you’ve ever seen.
Owners of 2014-2016 Lexus vehicles and 2016 Toyota Land Cruisers were experiencing a nationwide blackout on their nav systems yesterday. Fortunately, dealers have a fix in the form of a hard reset. Errant traffic and weather data that the head units didn’t know how to process was the cause of the issue.
Australia is a beautiful, vast country with hardly anybody living it. That’s why some 70 percent of the landmass has no cell coverage. But there are still enough people around to try and come up with a creative strategy for backcountry communication.
The Toyota Land Cruiser is like a retired boxing champ: It used to be rough and tough, but now it’s just bathing in luxury. What do you need to know before you buy a Land Cruiser? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, told a story in his weekly podcast about how he used a siren retrofitted to his 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser to avoid an accident on Interstate 280 after his steering linkage shattered going over 50 miles per hour.
The 2016 Lexus LX570 is getting a front-bumper tweezing to match the rest of the Lexus lineup. Yep, the fancified Toyota Land Cruiser will henceforth look like a cyborg insect too. But the well-deserved interior upgrade is downright sexy.
A winch is tool you use to pull heavy things. Mounted to an off-road vehicle, it’s an invaluable insurance policy against getting bogged in the backcountry. Here’s a primer on how to use a Jeep-mounted winch to rescue a truck suck in a hole of slickrock.
A 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser weighs about 5,875 pounds and despite all the heritage, is not something I would consider as a proper off-road vehicle. In Dubai though, the playing field is a bit crazier.
A reader just came back from a trip to Indonesia's Mt. Bromo volcano, where apparently just about every FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser has gone to retire. Look at them all! This is easily one of the greatest vacation videos I've ever seen.
This Australian commercial for the then-new direct-injection turbodiesel Land Cruiser makes it seem like the car has enough turbo rocket thrust to tow small moons. Want to guess how much power the thing actually made?
There was a time when a Toyota Land Cruiser was more than an anonymous-looking luxobarge made somewhat irrelevant by the existence of Lexus. It used to be a rugged, rough-and-tumble SUV built for climbin' and haulin' and kickin' asses. Now, because the off-road gods love us, Toyota is re-releasing their mid-1980s Land…
Reader and truck enthusiast HammerheadFistpunch took his modified Toyota Land Cruiser up one of America's great southwestern off-road routes and came back with some stories. Here's Part 1 of 3.
Like its close cousin the Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus GX 460 really feels like a truck thanks to body-on-frame construction.
