Purists will tell you there's no off-road machine like a Toyota Land Cruiser. Toyota's longest-running nameplate, the Land Cruiser, has forged a nearly unkillable reputation. It's something you can throw about in rough terrain with wanton, almost cruel disregard, and it will keep going. If you look after it well, it'll be a faithful travel companion that'll likely outlive you. So, when we say buy this 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser VX-R from us as soon as possible, we don't mean it's just for you, but for your kids as well. And possibly their kids. Because let's face it, the 207,000 miles on this Dubai-imported vehicle is a mere walk around the block for it. Interested? Let us tell you more.
This 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser VX-R is from the 80-Series, which was produced between 1990 and 1997. Presenting itself in a Dark Emerald Pearl paint job, it looks stunning. Of course, its lifted suspension, 16-inch alloy wheels, roof rack, pintle hitch, and a quartet of bumper-mounted foglamps all do their bit to contribute. This is a go-anywhere vehicle that has everything you need and nothing you don't. Badges and stickers proclaim "VX-R," "Full-Time 4WD," and "24-Valve" to tell everyone that this machine means business if they haven't gleaned it by appearance alone. Inside, you'll find a surprisingly luxurious cabin decked out in tan. There are comfortable leather seats to carry up to five adults, automatic climate control, rear air vents, cruise control, power windows, power mirrors and power door locks. We're just getting started, mind you. The current owner tells us that there's an aftermarket sound system with an Alpine head unit, speakers, and subwoofer. It's also reported that the second fuel tank gauge and driver's side rear window are nonfunctional, but these are mere foibles that can be easily fixed. Finally, there's a tilt-and-slide sunroof to enjoy on a pleasant day in the wilderness.
This 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser VX-R has a potent and reliable 4.5L 1FZ-FE in-line six-cylinder engine. Developing 240hp and 300lb-ft, it's got more than enough power no matter what the task. Drive goes to all four wheels via a 4-speed automatic gearbox and a dual-range transfer case. You'll also find locking front, center, and rear differentials for maximum off-road prowess. We're also told that the vehicle has two fuel tanks, and as we mentioned previously, the gauge for the second tank is currently not functioning.
