Diesel Land Cruiser Passenger Vehicles
Designed for off-road usage, Toyota Land Cruisers were first available to the buying public in the 1950's. Having received the 'Safest SUV Award' in 2016, the Land Cruiser's vintage history and features appeal to interested buyers.
What is the History of Land Cruiser Passenger Vehicles?
Starting out as a 4x4 military vehicle, the Land Cruiser evolved into passenger vehicles available in station wagons and vehicles designed for heavy-duty usage. Diesel engines were introduced in the 60’s with light-duty vehicles manufactured from the 80's and thereafter. You can choose body types such as SUVs, sedans and utility vehicles. You may even spot a used Land Cruiser camper to travel to the mountains and beaches of Australia.
What Features Are Available in Land Cruiser Passenger Vehicles?
A diesel engine performs better than vehicles using petrol and generally delivers better gas mileage. Aside from its ability to handle rugged terrains, the vehicle has a sturdy frame to tow as much as 3,600 kilograms. Depending on the model, you can transport 6-8 people comfortably and take advantage of its storage space by folding down the rear seats. Furthermore, some models come with rear spoilers and are available in manual and automatic transmissions.
