As a negligence of the Gelanderat, the Toyota Land Cruiser has been a consolidated reputation for decades. Since 1951, he has gradually won the terrain that had previously been undisputed by the Land Rover (the later Defender): "Who wants to go to the end of the world, takes a defender – who liked it from there again, rises in a country Cruiser ". That Toyota inherited these myths proudly to a later-added sideline is not completely correct, but logically: "Heavy-Duty" country Cruiser, today in the series "J7", there is no longer buy in Germany at Toyota – only whose meanwhile of the same name.
Although the reputation of the coarse monkole radiates a lot to this series ("J15"), but it is a vehicle tailored to the task of civilian use and therefore otherwise constructed differently. It combines at the expense of chassis mobility and robustness, for example, a front single-wheel upholstery with the rear rigid axis and thus wins comfort and duvetability.
With real permanent four-wheel drive
But as a trarled strain railway wagon, you should not look at it: The J15 is still paying to the unlimited representatives of its genus, which in Germany only from the Mitsubishi Pajero with permanent four-wheel drive and single-wheel upholding forward and behind. It remains in the gateful manifold ladder frame, which offers, among other things, the advantage of two wheelbars versions (around 4.8 or 4.3 meters long). Drive remains the preserved 2.8 liter CommonRail diesel with 177 hp and 450 nm between 1600 and 2400 / min with the alternative six-speed manual or six-stage transducer automatic. For the exhaust embroidery now a SCR catalyst serves, the AdBlue tank holds 15 liters.
The last review is barely for three years and brought only small improvements. That’s just like the current. Good news, because Toyota is waterpring with the current modernization for the vintage 2018 nothing on the railing technique with real permanent four-wheel drive and landing translation. The Torsen Differential, which varies as before the driving force between the front and rear axle automatically from 40:60 on the strain and in the bands between 50:50 to 30:70, was improved, as Toyota-Chiefenieur Sadayoshi Koyari explains. Optimization of the characteristic of the parallel lamellar clutch should help the traction and fortified straws to improve comfort.
To this Torse Differential Brake, with which the middle differential can also be able to block manually, as well as a lock FURS rear differential, as well as a 360 degree camera and an off-road tempomat. The basic model is hinted with practical 17-inch bargaining. Higher equipment variants are delivered with 18- or even 19-inch rims, which are due to the lower edge of the tires in peculiar contrast to the indestructible good governors of the car. If you use your country cruiser only as a towing vehicle on fortified straws, will be living with it. Three tons of neckpart with automatic hanger stabilization are series.
New are assistance systems such as tracking warning, traffic sign recognition or emergency brake assistant with fubganger recognition. There is also a modernized operating system, a multi-information display in the cockpit, air-conditioned front seats, a fund seat heater and a new automatic climate control. Some of the driving modes have been extended to the characteristics of engine, gear, steering and steamer. So far, the adaptive malades (AVS) with three as well as an air suspension of the rear axle with FUF modes and a gelandoming program with "Crawl Control".
