HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?: Will the new double-cab live up to its reputation? How on earth did someone manage to roll a Land Cruiser!? Stay with Wheels24 as we answer these questions and more on January 9.

CAPE TOWN - Toyota’s indomitable Land Cruiser 70 Series has been the ultimate workhorse and adventuring vehicle in South Africa. The LC 70 series has earned an enviable reputation for versatility and ruggedness.

Kerry Roodt, Toyota South Africa’s general manager of marketing communications, said: “If you want the world's toughest 4WD, for work, towing, or extensive off-road travel, this is it!”

LEGENDARY TOUGHNESS

In its latest iteration, the 70 Series range receives a model update 2013 which sees the addition of a new double-cab version and ABS anti-skid brakes on all models, as well as other improvements.

“The double-cab will carry five adults in comfort without sacrificing the one-ton payload (920kg for the diesel and 1005kg for the petrol model) or the Land Cruiser’s legendary toughness – in short, it delivers go-anywhere carrying capacity in style,” said Roodt.
