TToyota, hot on the heels of the Xtra Cab addition to its Hilux range, has turned its attention to its Land Cruiser 70 Series with the addition of some new equipment. For instance...

All units now have a 'lights-on' reminder.

A new feature for the 79 single-cab, 79 double-cab and 76 station-wagon when fitted with a V8 diesel, are auto-locking wheel hubs. This means, Toyota says, you no longer have to get out of the vehicle to lock the wheel hubs ahead of tough terrarin.

The revised Land Cruiser 79 double cab sports rear over-fenders and 16” alloy as opposed to steel rims (single-cab versions are sold with rear over-fenders and alloy rims as standard).

The Land Cruiser 76 V8 diesel station-wagon gains a spare-wheel cover. All 79 V8 diesel single and double-cabs receive a spare-wheel lock too.
