The Land Cruiser 70-series wants no introduction, having etched an enviable fame amongst off-roading lovers, recreation rangers, farmers and different utility-minded customers. The rugged building and infallible Toyota engines have earned it the fame of “it just keeps going”.
The 70-series is provided in three primary guises: Bakkie (79), station wagon (76) and wagon (78). Due to decreased demand, the choice to drop the “78” from the line-up was made in August 2015, with the “76” and “79” persevering with gross sales.
Following some particular market requests for this sort of automobile, Toyota South Africa is happy to announce the re-introduction of the Land Cruiser Wagon 78.
Drum brakes increase sturdiness
The specs mirror that of the previously-offered mannequin, except for a swap to drum brakes within the rear (which offer improved sturdiness in high-dirt working situations).
The Land Cruiser 78 is powered by the tried-and-true 1HZ 4.2-litre inline-6 diesel engine, producing 96kW at 3800rpm and 285Nm at a low 2200rpm. This is paired to a heavy-duty 5-speed guide transmission and low-range-equipped switch case.
The Land Cruiser 78 rides on heavy-duty metal wheels shod with 7.50R16C tyres and is out there in two exterior colors solely: Ivory White and Sand Beige.
A 3-year/100 000km guarantee types a part of the acquisition, with service intervals being each 5 000km. Customers can buy tailor-made service plans and/or guarantee extensions from their Toyota supplier.
