Toyota Mirai
FIRST DRIVE REVIEW

2019 Mirai

For commuters who live in a region where the hydrogen fueling infrastructure is already built out, opting for the 2019 Toyota Mirai may make a lot of sense. For starters, it's a genuinely futuristic experience since the Mirai is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that converts the stuff of stars into electricity and water. This electricity goes to a small battery that drives the motor while the water leaves the tailpipe as vapor.

Advantages of Buying a New or Toyota 86

It's easy to pick on the 2019 Toyota 86 and count the ways it falls just short of excellent. It's small inside. There's limited passenger and cargo space. It's not particularly comfortable, especially for taller drivers, and its technology feels dated and inadequate.

The VDJ79 is an evolution of the 70 series Land Cruiser that was first introduced in late 1984. Though never offered in the United States, the 70 series is the true inheritor of the FJ40's no-nonsense spirit. Light and compact compared with its 60 and 80 series contemporaries, the 70 series has always maintained a strong emphasis on capability over creature comfort. Its rugged, simple sensibilities have helped to keep it in production for over 20 years.
1957 – A 4-door Station Wagon was added called the FJ35V which was based on a 2,650 mm (104.3 in) wheelbase. The Land Cruiser first imported into Australia by B&D Motors as the FJ25/28 cab chassis with Australian made bodies.[10] The Land Cruiser was the first Japanese vehicle to be regularly exported to the country.[11]A small number of Land Cruisers were initially used in the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme, by sub contractor Theiss Constructions.[12]
The Land Cruiser 80 series was unveiled in October 1989 at the Tokyo Motor Show and launched in early 1990. It had swing-out back doors, which were replaced by a tailgate and hatch in 1994. The Land Cruiser was nicknamed the Burbuja (Bubble) in Colombia and Venezuela due to its roundness. The J80 was initially offered in two versions in these countries: the fully loaded VX and an entry level model that included a vinyl interior with optional air conditioning. In 1996, the entry model was upgraded to a medium equipped model named Autana, including cloth upholstery, standard air conditioning and power driver seat. The name is a reference to the Tepui mesa Autana, a spectacular plateau and cave system along the Guiana Shield craton. Land Cruiser sales reached 2 million vehicles.
Later in 1941, the Japanese government instructed Toyota to produce a light truck for Japan's military. In 1942, Toyota developed the AK10 prototype by reverse-engineering a Bantam GP. The half-ton truck features an upright front grille, flat front wheel arches that angled down and back like the FJ40, headlights mounted above the wheel arches on either side of the radiator, and a folding windshield.
Based on the FJ40, the FJ45 is a pickup version of that model. The FJ45 was only available in the United States from 1963-1967. The FJ45 featured either a fixed hardtop or a removable hardtop. The FJ45 Land Cruiser was available as a 4-Door Wagon, a Short Bed Pickup or a Long Bed Pickup. While the Long Bed and Wagon models are rare, the Short Bed version is extremely rare.
Production of the first generation of the Land Cruiser began in 1951[2] as Toyota's version of a Jeep-like vehicle.[3][4] The Land Cruiser has been produced in convertible, hardtop, station wagon and cab chassis bodystyles. The Land Cruiser's reliability and longevity has led to huge popularity, especially in Australia where it is the best-selling body-on-frame, four-wheel drive vehicle.[5] Toyota also extensively tests the Land Cruiser in the Australian outback – considered to be one of the toughest operating environments in both temperature and terrain.[6][7][8] In Japan, the Land Cruiser is exclusive to Toyota Japanese dealerships called Toyota Store. 

As of 2018, the Land Cruiser (J200) is available in most markets. Exceptions include Canada, Malaysia (which have the Lexus LX available), Hong Kong, Macau, North Korea, Singapore, South Korea, Brazil, Syria, Thailand and large parts of Europe. In Europe, the only countries that officially sell the Land Cruiser are: Gibraltar, Iceland, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.


This Toyota’s interior and its build quality live up to the rig’s high cost of entry, however. Items such as the door pulls and the power-window switches move with a weightiness that’s far beyond those of typical Toyota-badged products. Additionally, every Land Cruiser comes well equipped with features including LED headlights, a proximity key with push-button start, leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, four-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and blind-spot monitoring. Our test truck’s only extra item was a $225 set of carpeted floor and cargo mats.

Even so, the Land Cruiser feels like a relic of the past when driven around town. Its light, disconnected steering demands that the driver thinks ahead before plotting any change of direction, its brake pedal feels as airy and fluffy as a freshly made croissant, and its body rolls like a skiff in a tsunami. If a three-row people carrier is all you’re after, then there are a number of alternatives that both handle better and cost thousands less than the $85,610 Land Cruiser.

In Japan, the Land Cruiser had a minor change in 2009 when it received the 4.6 L V8 1UR-FE engine and the gearbox was replaced with a 6-speed automatic.[37] Although the new 4608 cc 1UR-FE is smaller than the old 4663 cc 2UZ-FE engine, the power has been increased from 212 to 234 kW (288 to 318 PS; 284 to 314 hp), torque increased from 448 to 460 N⋅m (330 to 339 lb⋅ft) and fuel consumption improved from 6.6 to 7.1 km/L (19 to 20 mpg‑imp; 16 to 17 mpg‑US) (Japan 10·15 mode measurement).
1997 – A limited run of Land Cruiser 80 was built specifically for collectors and is therefore called the Land Cruiser Collector's Edition. The Collector's Edition has Collectors Edition badging, "Collector's Edition" embroidered floor mats, automatic climate control, wheels with the "D" windows painted dark grey and special grey side moldings along with black pearl badging. The Collector's Edition was only available for the 1997 model year and the package was added to many of the available body colours.
1951 – In July 1951, Toyota's test driver Ichiro Taira drove the next generation of the Jeep BJ prototype up to the sixth stage of Mount Fuji, the first vehicle to climb that height. The test was overseen by the National Police Agency (NPA). Impressed by this feat, the NPA quickly placed an order for 289 of these offroad vehicles, making the Jeep BJ their official patrol car.[9]
The 200 Series Land Cruiser was first introduced globally in 2002. Over six decades of know-how went into the engineering of this SUV, fusing new, modern luxuries with legendary capability. In 2013, this icon was transformed into the off-road flagship it is today. Every Land Cruiser is loaded with refined creature comforts like heated and ventilated front seats, leather-wrapped surfaces and four-zone automatic climate control. Terrain-conquering prowess is enhanced with standard technologies like an advanced 5.7-liter V8, standard Crawl Control (CRAWL) and a Multi-terrain Monitor. This is how we take adventuring to the next level. Here's to another 60 years of exploring.
In 2002, a 5-year development plan on a successor to the 100-series platform commenced under Sadayoshi Koyari and Tetsuya Tada. By 2004, 10 years after the design selection of its predecessor in 1994, a final production design was settled on for the 2008 J200. Prototype related tests were conducted for over 2 years between 2004 and early 2007. The redesigned Toyota Land Cruiser was introduced in late 2007. Known as the 200 Series, it shares the Lexus LX 570's platform and overall design. The frame was new, derived from the second-generation Tundra[citation needed] but shortened and strengthened by 20 percent. Bigger brake rotors and calipers were added and the front suspension was made strengthened than its predecessor. The underbelly is also protected by skid plates. The roof pillars were redesigned to better protect occupants in a rollover.
The Land Cruiser is a worldwide legend, known from Aruba to Zimbabwe to be one of the most competent SUVs ever made. Featuring a sturdy body-on-frame design and a 5.7-liter 381-hp V-8 engine with an eight-speed automatic and full-time four-wheel drive, it offers serious off-roading ability. Creature comforts are addressed, too, with three rows of leather seating for eight, heated and ventilated front seats, a 9.0-inch infotainment system, four-zone climate control, and adaptive cruise control.
The 200 Series encountered some criticism due to its bland body restyling, with some[who?] claiming that Toyota has 'overdeveloped' the classic trademarked Land Cruiser identity in its efforts to fit the Land Cruiser into modern 21st century motoring and vehicle design. Nonetheless, the Land Cruiser remains the NATO vehicle of choice[citation needed] and remains a competent off-road vehicle.
