There's a rugged new GX specification for the Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series, aimed at Australia's farming and mining industries.
Entering as the spiritual successor to the 100 Series Standard Grade, the GXL-based turbodiesel five-seat GX gets vinyl floors, vertically-hinged twin barn doors at the rear and 17-inch steel wheels.
There is also a 93-litre main fuel tank and a 45-litre auxiliary tank, along with underbody protection and a standard car key.
The rear seats are 60/40 split-folding, with adjustable seat-back recline and adjustable head restraints. There's also tilt-and-telescopic steering-column adjustment.
Creature comforts include a single-disc CD player, manual air-conditioning, power windows (auto up/down for driver) and powered exterior mirrors.
The stereo has fascia-mounted 3.5mm Aux/USB input, MP3/WMA compatibility and Bluetooth hands-free/audio streaming capability. The four-spoke urethane steering wheel has control switches for the four-speaker CD tuner audio unit.
Cabin storage locations include a centre console box, front and rear door pockets, front-seat cup holders, and map pockets on the back of the driver and front-passenger seats. The spare wheel is mounted underneath the cargo floor.
Safety features include driver and front-passenger airbags, curtain-shield airbags, vehicle stability control, active traction control, hill-start assist, multi-terrain anti-skid brakes and Toyota CRAWL.
Designed to assist drivers navigating tricky terrain, CRAWL is a 'feet-off' control system that operates in low-range and replaces Downhill Assist Control.
Power is provided by Toyota's 195kW and 650Nm 4.5 litre V8 turbodiesel, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a full-time 4WD system with a Torsen LSD and a two-speed transfer case.
Recommended retail price for the LandCruiser GX is $77,990 (GXL remains the entry model at $77,414).
The LandCruiser GX is also covered by Toyota Service Advantage capped-price servicing at $210 per service.
