    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    Unless Toyota gets new leadership... They have not been in the habit of stressing their motors. I just dont see them squeezing more than 200kw/650Nm from a 3.3l displacement

    No single country at the moment in which the LC200 is sold with the 2.8 diesel.

    The more I see these videos the more I get confused. It seems this defender is not all its hyped to be. Most videos show it seriously struggling in extreme off road environment.. [emoji1745]

    Spacewise, I prefer the LC200 for a larger family in daily use. the space behind the 3rd in the 200 is like 3 times that of the D4.
