JAOS & In-House Tuner Unveil Off-Road Accessory Collection
The iconic Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series, widely considered to be the most rugged four-wheeler available on the market nowadays, can now be obtained with off-terrain extras from Modellista, Toyota’s own personal customizing organization.
Toyota’s dependable 4×4 recently was boosted by a makeover, and Modellista has been quick to assemble a consignment of both practical and aesthetically pleasing extras. For this exercise, JAOS (Japan Offroad Service) lent a helping hand to Modellista to fabricate components that catch the eyes of dare-devils.
To begin, the well-known Toyota Land Cruiser SUV (generally termed a wagon) features a more heavily constructed front bumper with incorporated daytime running lamps. Customers can even select yellowish fog lights, specifically to better pierce through thick fog and a shield plate for the base of the automobile warding off rocks along with other impediments. In addition, the rear of this Toyota Land Cruiser has also been granted a protective panel while you can even select an optional rooftop rack that can manage around 110 pounds.
Do you desire your Land Cruiser to be distinct from the rest of the pack? In that case, Modellista has just the thing: breathtaking X-Claw wheels in an attractive matte bronze appearance. Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tires further bolster the 70 Series by churning up enhanced potential.
In case the austere password inside leaves you yearning for something cheerier, a variety of ornaments are obtainable to liven up the insides. Unconventional counterfeit timber garnishing and piano-black embellishments, LED internal illumination, seat recliners, and a gel luggage shelf preventing muck and sand from getting into the cargo space–these are all among the options!
Including tinted windows and fresh license plate bolts, the Add-ons make this Modelista vehicle less noticeable. This is probably a wise decision for Land Cruiser 70 fanatics, who tend to stick to the classic config.
No references to any powertrain improvements are made, which implies that the robust Land Cruiser keeps running with its two standard motor options.
Customers who have been loyal to the brand are sure to be pleased knowing that the dependable 4.5-liter V8 turbodiesel remains as an option. With 202 horses and 317 lb-ft of torque, it puts up quite a performance. But for the first time in the history of the 70 Series, a four-cylinder version might also be made available. This 2.8-liter turbodiesel, taken from the Hilux, musters 201 hp and has 367 lb-ft of force.
The mightiest V8 is accompanied by a five-speed manual gearbox, while the modern four-cylinder motor has solely an automatic offering. It would be intriguing to find out if these enhancements are accessible for more seasoned 70 Series iterations, thereby furnishing proprietors with the capacity to construct their own “restomods,” in a manner of speaking.
Regrettably, this magnificent four-wheel drive vehicle is not accessible in the US. Nevertheless, the Land Cruiser has reemerged in an altered state than formerly.
