Land Cruiser is legend. Off-road vehicle appeared in 1951, when Toyota Motor Corporation did to itself a competitor to the Â«JeepÂ» and British Land Rover tested by war. The Japanese car manufacturer named the creation of Â«Jeep BJÂ». Since a car climbed on a mountain Fujiyama, what it succeeded to not a single other car, a state police ordered to itself 289 copies. In 1954, the car got the today's name â€“ Â«Land CruiserÂ».
In the heart of Land Cruiser there is a 5,7-with a capacity of one the liter eight cylinder engine, that also stands under the hood of Toyota Tundra, Toyota Sequoia and Lexus LX570. An aluminum aggregate gives out 381 hp. Standard gear-boxes â€“ six-stage box-automat, sending power to the full drive system. And the error was never that unspeakably happy. So, it can be trusted.
A front suspension is configuration of double transversal lever with a cylindrical spring, and back â€“ the four- membered longitudinal lever with an uncut bridge. Land Cruiser always depended upon standard volute springs. Wheels on off-road vehicle cost one 18-inch with higher side-frames for the improved ride on the lack of roads. The brakes are similar to the version installed on the LX570 with 4-piston calipers up front and double back.
Land Cruiser is a legal eight local car in that five persons will be fitted comfortably. At the front two tub-shaped seats, three additional seats are folded to the side-frames of luggage rack. It is possible again to return one motion of hand of them on Â«battle positionsÂ».
In truth, the free space in the third row is not as y and much, so do not fool ourselves. Seats will bother even to the children after a long journey. But besides three to the passengers there is a lucky not enough that to go behind, five other passengers will feel miraculously.
Climate control has 28 gates, through which fresh air is blowing into the cabin. In case of frost, when a traditional heater is not enough, Toyota provided with a car an electric ceramic element that to the passengers was a comfort. Among other standard aspects are toned glasses, programmed keys, and warmed up front seats, mirrors with the automatic darkening and JBL audio system by 14 loud speakers. Work on Â«CheersÂ», even were not any, and, I hope, will not be satisfactory.
On the whole, famous off-road vehicle of Toyota is a decent enough car it is possible to live with that. Acceleration impresses, and brakes perfectly get along at all tasks.
