The Toyota Land Cruiser is the definitive overland vehicle by which all alternatives are measured. A bold statement, but as the years have passed, I’ve only become more certain of this. I’m currently exploring Italy’s Dolomites, where my Vanagon Syncro has struggled daily with the colossal inclines and terrifying descents. Thus far, I’ve endured severe brake fade, two blown CVs, overheating, and regularly fight to get out of second gear. Therefore, it was somewhat symbolic and borderline depressing, when I spent a day driving the same roads in my friend’s 100-Series Land Cruiser, with a large trailer and, wait for it, a Vanagon on top. It was incredible that the Toyota could trailer another heavy vehicle effortlessly on the same 20 percent gradients and descents that my Syncro barely managed. It was a huge testament to the Land Cruiser’s fabled all-around performance and workhorse credentials.
Today’s newer 2016 LC200 model is one of the nicest we’ve featured, has covered just 89,000 miles, and showcases a long list of premium modifications. At $79,000, it’s an expensive vehicle, but it’s worth every dollar.
From the Seller:
“This vehicle is in great shape, has been regularly maintained and serviced, and has been true to its heritage during my ownership. It’s worth noting that we did just get the front brakes done. Overall, this rig is pretty turnkey and ready to go. Someone might want to add a storage solution to the back; we needed the extra seating, so we retained the factory jump seats.”
2016 Toyota Land Cruiser LC200
The Land Cruiser is fitted with a V8 motor that produces 381 horsepower, 401 pound-feet of torque, and returns a combined 15 mpg. On road, the Toyota handles well thanks to Kinetic Dynamic suspension, which can stiffen the anti-roll bars for better handling. However, the LC200 really shines off-pavement, thanks to full-time 4WD, 30-degree approach angle, 9.5 inches of rear suspension travel, high and low range, and a locking center differential. In addition, it benefits from intelligent all-terrain programmes such as hill-start assist, Crawl Control, and Off-Road Turn Assist. Despite these rugged qualities, the interior is very luxurious and incorporates a considerable array of driver comforts, including:
- Heated front and second-row leather seats
- Four-zone climate control
- Power locks, mirrors, and windows
- Rear-seat DVD entertainment system
- Adaptive cruise control
- Heated leather-trimmed steering wheel
- Infotainment system with navigation
- Premium sound system
- Method wheels with BFGoodrich A/T tires
- Dissent Off-road bumpers
- Front Runner roof rack
- Long Range America auxiliary fuel tank, 24-gallon
- ARB BP-51 lift
- Warn Zeon 12S Platinum winch
- ARB Dual Air compressor
