2013-01-08 11:09

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.

Wheels24 editor LES STEPHENSON will have full report on the Toyota’s Land Cruiser 70 Series 2013 range on Wednesday, January 9.

    Makes sense in Australia but SA....no doubt you'll see the 4x4 mags loaded with "upgrades" very soon...LMAO...to make it "better"...Ford Ranger or Amarok please...for SA conditions.

      Oh yes because SA ends in Sandton anmd Parktown. Try using your Amarok or ranger for 7 years and 400,000kms in The Kalahari like I did my Landcruiser, then we can see.

      Bluesilver ek stem saam. Deesdae kom die Cruiser nie eers meer met 'n dubbelwand laaibak nie!!! En daardie diesel is "useless" in die sand. Kalahari Boere gebruik net die Petrol. Maar dan moet jy 'n vulstasie op jou plaas hê. En die wat die Cruiser kan bekostig ry hom nie meer 7 jaar en 400 000km nie. Nee hulle ruil hom elke 2 of 3 jaar in. Dan kos al die ekstras nog R30-40 000 ekstra. My Ford hou ook 3 jaar en ek ry baie lekkerder met meer krag, minder brandstof en baie meer gerief!!! Of as ek 'n Toyota fan is eerder die Hilux!!
