Toyota Land Cruiser Driving Event in Namibia – Preparations

Available in more than 190 countries worldwide, the most of all existing Toyota models, the Toyota Land Cruiser’s unrivalled off-road abilities have earned it a rock-solid reputation as one of the world’s toughest and most reliable 4x4s, and made it the segment sales leader in more than 10 European countries. The new Toyota Land Cruiser further enhances this reputation with new, more modern and robust exterior styling, more sophisticated, comfortable and higher quality interior design, and improvements to its dynamic abilities and user-friendliness, both on- and off-road. Featuring ergonomically optimised and functionally grouped switchgear, a new dashboard design incorporates the large, 8 inch Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system, Optitron driver’s meters, and a steering wheel switchgear-controlled 4.2″ Multi-information Display. On-board comfort has been enhanced through the adoption of front seat ventilation, rear seat heating and automatic climate control, an electric, heated windscreen and heated washer nozzles, reverse tilting door mirrors, and a new smart key design. In western Europe the new Land Cruiser is powered by a 130 kW/177 DIN hp 2.8 D-4D turbodiesel. For eastern European markets the model is also available with a choice of 122 kW/164 DIN hp 2.7 VVT-i and 183 kW/249 DIN hp 4.0 VVT-i petrol engines. Key to the Land Cruiser’s peerless off-road capability is its combination of a highly durable, deformation-resistant, segment-unique body-on-frame construction and the remarkable level of guidance and technical support it offers drivers.
