TOY­OTA LANDCRUISER 70

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - LIGHT COMMERCIAL OVERVIEW -

Toy­ota would have us be­lieve the LC70 is New Zealand’s ul­ti­mate work­ing ute, and given its rep­u­ta­tion for de­pend­able dura­bil­ity, the reg­is­tra­tions and the min­i­mal im­prove­ments or changes to the ute that re­ally is a small truck, per­haps this is not too far off the mark. With a six-model line-up in­clud­ing troop car­rier vari­ants as well as the cab chas­sis, sin­gle and dou­ble cab util­i­ties, the LC70 is ex­clu­sively pow­ered by a twin tur­bocharged, 4.5-litre V8 diesel run­ning through a man­ual five-speed trans­mis­sion. The en­gine out­puts 151kw of power and 430Nm of torque which, com­bined with the de­sign strengths of the 70 Cruiser, make it a fix­ture in the lo­cal ute mar­ket.
