The Toyota Land Cruiser represents all of the best attributes of the modern sports utility vehicle. The 80 series brought a long list of fresh upgrades, including new sheet metal, an unstoppable 4.5L I-6 power plant, and a more spacious and luxurious interior. This 1994 model, has plenty of room for the family, and a 4WD system capable enough to transport them over most treacherous on or off-road terrain. Finished in one of the best color options available, Toyota's Medium Gray Metallic (183) it has been kept in great condition. The paint itself shows really well for its age and is free of any peeling or notable scuffs which is impressive for a vehicle of this size. Even the optional tire cover was color matched and polished to match all of the trim. The body has been kept all stock, including the OEM brush guard and skid plate. While these came equipped with factory fog lights auxiliary yellow Bosch fogs can be activated for foggier conditions. The body matches the paint in condition with only a few typical door dings over it's 101K verified mile lifetime in Japan. Outback a more modern set of LED tail lamps helps to update the rear end of this brutish SUV.
Climbing inside the cabin, you'll find even more factory options; including electronic controlled transmission, a factory cool box/ice maker, power mirrors, dual-zone climate control (for rear passengers), factory altimeter, automatic climate control, and optional third-row seating just to name a few. The seats are trimmed in a suede-like material that feels luxurious and looks incredible. All of the seats are in well above average condition for vehicles half it's age. It's both a testament to Toyota's build quality along with the higher level of care we see in Japan. The interior has been kept largely all original with simply the addition of an aftermarket double din radio and a wood grain steering wheel. Several of the trim pieces have been fitted with a sleek carbon fiber look that plays off the two-tone interior well.
When it comes to the drive train the Land Cruiser needs no introduction. Known worldwide for being utterly reliable the 4.5L gas-powered 1FZ-FE straight-six engine provides both usable power on the highway and enough torque to get you out of any off-road adventure you may encounter. Since this drivetrain was used in the US models parts availability will never be an issue. The automatic transmission shifts well, albeit with little urgency. The rugged 4x4 system is eager to perform, making this hauler just as capable of making a run to Costco in the snow as it is fording a river. This one is a K295 truck which means it's fitted with the front and rear LSD to aid the four-wheel drive system. To ensure that the VX is ready for it's US debut our trained techs have gone over it and brought it back up to speed. 5 new all-terrain tires, a fresh set of plug wires, an A/C recharge, and the obligatory oil change has it good as new. The Land Cruiser has been a staple in the SUV world since 1951 with no signs of slowing down.
