After being phased out in 2004, the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser 70 has made a comeback in Japan. The vehicle has been the epitome of dependability and longevity, according to the manufacturer since its initial introduction in 1984. After a prolonged hiatus, it has returned to the market with enhanced features, performance, and technologies while preserving its fundamental dependability. Beneath the skin, the legendary Japan-spec model has a 2.8-litre direct-injection turbo diesel mill with a peak torque of 500Nm and a maximum power output of about 201bhp. The model offers different engine options depending on the region where it is sold. For instance, in Australia, there is a V8 diesel engine available, while in the United Arab Emirates, the vehicle is equipped with a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine. Additionally, there are also short three-door and pick-up truck versions of this vehicle available depending on the area. Let's take a glance at a few other aspects of this model.
