Toyota has always had a healthy lineup of tough, collectible SUVs, with the Land Cruiser leading the pack for enthusiasts. The rugged mechanical design contrasts with the comfortable and well-optioned interior. This 1994 80 series Toyota Land Cruiser is a prime example of just that. With only a mere 114K verified and documented miles on this rig, the reliable 4.5L I6 engine powering this family-hauler has a proven track record for reliability and is fresh off a recent service here stateside. Originally finished in a Dark Emerald Pearl (6M1), this example was repainted in a two-tone Gray Metallic. The body is in good shape, noting the usual minor wear and blemishes traditionally found on a vehicle of this age. OEM rain guards, blacked-out KZN185 wheels, projector-beam headlights, and LED taillights to update the aesthetic and set this truck apart from the rest. Accompanied by plenty of factory upgrades, this retail-ready rig is ready to take you on your next adventure.
Spacious is an understatement when it comes to describing the cabin on this 80 series. This five-seater is well equipped and comfortable for road trips or daily commuting with style. The seats are upholstered in a soft gray Alcantara. They lack any major rips stains and tears and are comfortable on long trips. The dash has resisted sun damage over the years and has no cracks or bubbling which is common in these 80s. The headliner is in great shape and the door cards are matching the condition, too. This VX limited comes equipped with a coolbox center console, power sunroof, power windows, and power locks, and cruise control. All these work as advertised and make daily use manageable. Below the sunroof controls, are the gauges for the compass and altimeter for when you take the road less traveled. The power-folding and adjustments on the mirrors unfortunately are inoperable, but can still manually be adjusted by hand. The factory radio was ditched and replaced with an Eclipse head unit for all your audio needs. The rear seats fold down if you need even more cargo space to fit your luggage or weekend purchases.
The powerplant that moves this 80 series is the 4.5L 1FZ-FE I6 petrol engine that's paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Fresh off an oil and filter service, she can be driven off the lot and taken on an immediate adventure! As a nearly identical model was sold stateside with the identical driveline, service, and parts are a snap! The Land Cruiser comes to life with a twist of the key, thanks to a new 12V battery installed in-house. It will last for years to come and handle the coldest of winter snaps without any issues. The straight-six idles are nearly vibration-free and has a wide torque profile to note. The transmission shifts seamlessly through the gears when accelerating and sustained highway cruising is stress-free. The brakes are confident and help slow this rig with ease even for its size. The suspension handles road imperfections with ease and seems unphased by the occasional massive pothole, unlike smaller trucks we sell. While the 80 series was in our shop, we had some maintenance bits performed by our trained technicians which include a new engine air filter, new radiator, new alternator, and a set of serpentine belts. We want our customers to have a turn-key-ready vehicle with peace of mind and this one certainly has our seal of approval.
