Watch this Civilian Toyota Mega Cruiser in-depth review

The Toyota Mega Cruiser is basically the Japanese HUMVEE, but cooler

The Toyota Mega Cruiser is based on the millitary BXD-10 millitary transport of which around 3,000 were built

However, only 149 Civilian Mega Cruisers were made

It's a child of the 1990s Japanese Bubble economy

It was not very successful due to its vast dimensions

It's powered by a 4.1-liter inline-four turbodiesel, mated to a 4-speed automatic

It's rate at 153 horsepower and 282 pound-feet (382 Nm)

The interior borrowed many components from the 80-series Land Cruiser

Despite the wide transmission tunnel (similar to the Hummer H1) it was actually spacious

Four people could easily sit on the second row

It had two roof types - a standard and an optional high roof

It lalso has a bespoke roof rack

That was also optional

Clever engineering - It featured inboard brakes, portal axles, and ful independent suspension

It aso had four-wheel steering

At low speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction, greatly improving the turning radius

It is actually very refined - it feels like a Toyota, instead of a military car

Despite its size, it's completely usable as a daily transportation
