V8 engine disappears in Toyota Land Cruiser after 40 years

After 40 years, the V8 engine in the Toyota Land Cruiser is over. Australia is the last market to phase out the big 4.5-litre diesel chopper.

It's all about downsizing when Toyota says goodbye to the V8 engine in the Land Cruiser after 40 years. The Australians are the last to let go.

Because while here at home we haven't seen the shadow of a V8-powered Land Cruiser for a very long time, Toyota has kept the big diesel engine alive in other countries.

But it's over now. The order books in Australia are closed as the last in the history of the Land Cruiser model. Toyota itself points out that 'changed legislation' has killed the engine.

That's what Car Expert writes.

In fact, it has been this way for a long time. It has already been two years since the Australian importer closed the order book. However, it is only now that the last copies of the Land Cruiser with a V8 engine have been delivered.

However, the Land Cruiser has not been completely consoled. Toyota still offers its customers a manual gearbox. Yes, you read that right. It's a car from 2024 with three pedals.

The 2.8-liter diesel engine that Toyota equips the new Land Cruiser with can also be connected to a five-speed manual gearbox. It is not known whether this will be an option in Denmark.

But on the other hand, there is no doubt that the big car is good business for the Japanese. Already 30 minutes after the German importer opened for sales in December last year, you had to report that everything was sold out. Read more about it here .
