6x6 Toyota Land Cruiser Goes Off-Roading: Video
The legend gets even more capabilityby Jonathan Lopez, on
The Toyota Land Cruiser is without a doubt one of the greatest off-road vehicles ever made. It ranks right up there with the Land Rover Defender, Jeep Wrangler, and Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen when it comes to prowess over unpaved surfaces. But even with so much natural talent, there are some out there who feel the need to take it even further. But what do you do if a lift kit, meaty tires, skid plates, and lockers aren’t enough? Time to go 6x6.
That’s the solution seen here in this one-minute, 23-second video. The star of the show comes from NSV and Multidrive Technology, which blessed the Toyota with an extra axle to handle the rough stuff. The result looks OEM in quality, not to mention incredibly capable.
The 6x6 is powered by a 4.0-liter V-6 engine, which is supercharged to 398 horsepower and 364 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant mates to a dual-range, five-speed manual transmission. If you’re interested in picking one up for yourself, you can also get it with a 4.5-liter turbodiesel and automatic gearbox.
Looks like a lot of fun. But for some reason, I can’t help but wish it came with the option for Hellcat power…
