Unfortunately, the modern Land Cruiser 70 will be the privilege of a single purchase.
He initially took his first steps as Toyota BJ on August 1, 1951, while immediately after its launch, it became the first vehicle to climb the sixth station of Mt.Fuji. Since then, the Land Cruiser he never stopped fulfilling his mission to provide freedom of movement and security to all types of people in places that are accessible only with this model.
The Land Cruiser was developed based on the most extreme situations of use and provided reliability, durability and off road performance which allowed people to go almost anywhere. This philosophy has continued and evolved, now listing cumulative sales of approx 11.3 million units in about 170 countries and regions around the world.
Since its launch in 1984, the ’70’ series has continued to incorporate into its manufacturing DNA virtues such as reliability, the resilience and the off road performance which are core values of the Land Cruiser.
Today, this very model is being re-introduced into the Japanese market today by Toyota. With the difference, of course, that it is not the well-known off-roader that we met for the first time 40 years ago, as this version has quite a few modern systems – such as Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control. Toyota offers this Land Cruiser 70 with a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as electronic stability control and active traction control systems. The “present” also gives the known and always reliable ladder frame.
The reborn Land Cruiser 70 is offered exclusively in Japan as 6θυρο SUV -since at the back there are two doors- length 4,890 mm powered by one 2.8 liter diesel engine with direct injection, power 204 horsepower and torque 500 Nm. Characteristically, the fuel tank has capacity 130 liters, while its modern interior allows the accommodation of 5 passengers.
This particular ’70’ series Land Cruiser will be available through it KINTO subscription service of Toyota. The most affordable plan package of this service includes a monthly installment of just 285 euros.
The price of the “new” Land Cruiser 70 is however set at 4,800,000 yen, i.e. no more than 29,966 euros based on current exchange rates.
