2007 VDJ79

The VDJ79 is an evolution of the 70-series Land Cruiser that was first introduced in late 1984. Though never offered in the United States, the 70-series is the true inheritor of the FJ40's no-nonsense spirit. Light and compact as compared with its 60- and 80-series contemporaries, the 70 has always maintained a strong emphasis on capability over creature comfort. Its rugged, simple sensibilities have helped keep it in production for over 20 years.

For 2007, the FJ79 was fitted with the brand-new 1VD-FTV engine, Toyota's first intercooled turbo-diesel V8.

1992 The FZJ80 OZ

The worldwide response to the new 80-series was overwhelming: the main plant had to stay open around the clock for six months straight. That was unprecedented — much like the 80-series itself.

Luxury and capability were integrated like never before. The long-standing solid axles were replaced with a coilspring suspension — but with greater suspension travel. Passengers were met with available leather and a refrigerator — and a space in the dashboard allowed for a two-way radio.

And off-road competence just increased. Full-time 4WD replaced the part-time system, and a locking center differential was added to the drivetrain.

Utilitarian models of the 80 continued to be used on Australian ranches. But luxury models were here to stay. Where would Land Cruiser go from here?

1991 HDJ80 JP

The Japanese HDJ80 is a very different animal from its U.S. counterpart. Equipped with the 1HD-T turbo-diesel powerplant and (in most cases) a 5-speed manual transmission, the Japanese FJ80 delivers loads of torque. A broad gear spread complements the 80-series' inherent capability, producing a competent off-road vehicle.

1988 FJ62

The FJ62 shares the 60-series category with the FJ60. The notable upgrades from the FJ60 to the FJ62 were the fuel-injected 4.0-liter 6-cylinder 3F-EFI engine, an automatic transmission, rectangular headlights, larger sideview mirrors and power options. Like the FJ60, the FJ62 owners enjoyed plenty of interior space compared to previous Land Cruisers.

1986 FJ60

When asked about the 60-series, one Land Cruiser mechanic smiles and talks about the mileage on one he'd just seen: 450,000.*

The all-new 60-series got its start in 1980 with new gasoline and diesel engines, new transmissions and new luxuries, like a moonroof, sport buckets and a third-row seat.

Toyota was aiming for on-road comfort, but off-road standbys were retained: front and rear solid axles and two locking differentials. The result was a blended vehicle like no other. Eventually, some 2500 variations would be made throughout the world.

The mechanic concludes his comments with the story of a guy who's got 650,000 miles* on his Land Cruiser. But it's not being towed to the junkyard. It's his daily driver.

*These mileage performances are exceptional. Do not expect to obtain the same mileage with your Toyota.

1977 FJ45

Based on the FJ40, the FJ45 is a pickup version of that model. The FJ45 was only available in the United States from 1963-1967. The FJ45 featured either a fixed hardtop or a removable hardtop. The FJ45 Land Cruiser was available as a 4-Door Wagon, a Short Bed Pickup or a Long Bed Pickup. While the Long Bed and Wagon models are rare, the Short Bed version is extremely rare.

Both of the original pickup lengths were available with a fixed or removable top and doors and as a 4-Door Wagon. All of which are extremely rare.

1970 FJ40

The FJ40 is the most iconic Land Cruiser. It is instantly recognizable: a simple, two-box hardtop with wraparound rear windows and dual swing-out doors. But durability made the design a legend. According to one expert, it is still "the standard of the industry," with more 40-series still running than any other off-road vehicle.

The 40-series gave the marque low-range gearing, a jump in horsepower and payload, and a greater variety of body styles and engines than ever before. And in the 40-series, Toyota's "Land Cruiser strategy" truly began to cover the earth, with over a million made in 24 years on the market.

1957 FJ25

With real doors, roll-down windows and available air conditioning, the 20-Series brought the BJ-era Land Cruiser into civilian life. But a subtle design trait on the dashboard foretold Land Cruiser's future: the glove box and instrument panel were identically shaped and interchangeable, making manufacturing a left-hand- or right-handdrive version equally easy. For Toyota, foreign markets were the new target.

Toyota called it the "Land Cruiser Strategy:" establish a bridgehead in a new country with Land Cruiser and then follow it with passenger cars. Other marketing savvy included adjusting chassis length to market demand and creating pickups, wagons – soft- and hardtops, four-doors and two-doors.
