Toyota gives Land Cruiser 200 a power bump


Facelifted just over two years ago, Toyota has applied more revisions to the flagship Land Cruiser 200, the biggest being a more powerful version of the 4.5-litre D-4D turbodiesel V8 engine.

Already available in the Lexus LX, the unit in the Land Cruiser has been upped to produce the same 195 kW and 650 Nm, 22 kW and 35 Nm more than before, with drive again going to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Spec-wise, the GX continues to serve as base model, but now comes equipped with rear Park Distance Control, roof rails, a rear tonneau cover and a centre console placed cooled glovebox. The top spec VX meanwhile becomes the VX-R and gets auto folding mirrors, roof rails and a integrated tow bar.

A three year / 100 000 km warranty and five year / 90 000 km service plan are included in the GX's R999 990 and the VX-R's R1 345 000 asking prices.
