A 2.8-litre 175bhp diesel engine comes with a choice of a six-speed manual gearbox (Active trim only) or automatic transmission (available for all three grades). Whichever you choose, a peak torque of 420Nm is achievable, as is a towing capacity of 3,000kg (braked). Despite its size and power, the Toyota Land Cruiser is able to deliver up to 38.1mpg.
