Here's Why The Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series Is an SUV Icon


The Toyota Land Cruiser “80 Series” is a fantastic SUV — and it’s rapidly becoming an icon. Today I’m reviewing the FZJ80 Land Cruiser, and I’m going to show you all the quirks and features of the 1990s Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX450. Then I’m going to drive the Land Cruiser and show you what it’s like on the road.

    Before anyone asks, "LRD" is just a joke decal. There is no Lexus Racing Development. Yet. 😈

    i like your videos but i have to say you're complete wrong about the stowing of the third row seats . Basically the vehicle you looked at didn't have the seats positioned correctly for, 'out the way'. you tighted up on the straps which connect the seats to the grab handles and then the seat actually stow into the window space. it is possible the extra padding on the us model lexus version were a bit big to get into the window but certainly the Landcruiser more basic seat did stow into the window space and this is actually a better solution than the 200 series which does take out rear cargo access space. You mentioned modern suv's stoving under the floor but that isnt a ood solution for something like the landcruiser because under where the third row is , is the spare tire and in some markets the second fuel tank! So to maintain ground clearance and range the seats are a great design. When you fold the seats correctly ( certainly in the landcruiser version) you have the same rear width with the seat folded as the rear door width so you can still get full cargo usage. i think you'd probably only figure this out by living with this vehicle. We use an 1990 80 series and two 1997,1999 lanrcruiser prados for our Scottish outdoor business, ( the prado/colorado has the same third row seat design) we carry 8 people, and more often just carry tons of outdoor equipment in these trucks, they are simply awesome!

    Worst rebadge in history? Remember the 90’s GMC Suburban and the Chevrolet Suburban? They didn’t even change the name lol

    The 2018 Ford Flex has that exact same seat thing with getting into the 3rd row

    $37k in 1997 is $60k today. The price of the Land Cruiser/LX has just ballooned like crazy.

    The Lexus lx450 has the same drivetrain drive chassis suspension linkage as the Toyota Land Cruiser meaning that it is as capable as the land cruiser off road with the same body weight but just the smallest amount of design change through the body panels. it’s got the trd inline 6 and v8 motor choice just like the land cruiser with also the same amount of hp and torque. basically Toyota rebrands the exact same car with a Lexus badge. Also the only difference between the the trd inline 6 is the badge replaced with the lexus logo.

    I have a 2005. 220k. Not a squeak. Doors shut like vault doors. I have owned many Toyotas. Love this one the most.

    Dude you act like you’re offended by the “luxury” of the lx and cruisers. It’s a utilitarian off-road vehicle what the fuck does it matter

    Just bought one for 400 bucks starts and runs everything works 150k on the clock.

    Sounds great but a tweaker lived in it. The rear seats are missing the 2nd row and 3rd row. Plus he wired up lights on the outside in a really stupid and dangerous way. So got to fix all that.

    But 400 bucks for a running land cruiser locking diffs too so I think I did good.

    The lower storage area in the center console is a refrigerator in the Land Cruiser. I guess they didn't include it in the Lexus.

    Great review
    but Doug needs to amend fun factor, it doesn't allow for 4×4 offroad. This 80 series with front and rear locking diffs only had the G wagon to contend with in its day. Even the mighty Hummer H1 had an early traction control that only locked the wheels temporarily (although it had portal axles instead). The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon would be another 10 years coming. They were mighty vehicles.
