    The LC and Patrol cohort will always sell like hot cakes in the middle East. They love them very much, and I guess due to volumes they can get the pricing reasonable.

    For example, I like the fact that it can be offered for much cheaper with the 4.0..

    Didnít know the lc200 came in a 4.0 V6, thought just the V8 petrol and diesel. Interesting to know it performed better than in the Prado

    It did in some countries one of them being China if I recall.
    I read somewhere that even the 300 might still come with the 4.0 in some countries.

    And in many Africa markets, I guess apart from southern Africa. The 200 base for most government fleet was the 4.0v6.

    300 already is out with the 4.0 in the middle East. See www.toyota.ae for detail

    Interesting how the competitors look at each other.
    This new LC 300:
    - V6 3.3D Diesel 225Kw and 700Nm
    The new Gwagen 400d:
    - V6 3.0D Diesel 243Kw and 700Nm

    Will be quite difficult choice if the price is on par.

    The Aussie, John Cadogan (Car Expert) is a guy I don't like very much, purely because of his irritating mannerisms. He does make some valid points at times though. He is very sceptical about the new V6 diesel in the 300 due to it being a "hot" v engine, iow, exhaust and turbos inside the V, something I didn't know and don't like either.

    Will be interesting to see what happens long term. Comes back to my previous statement of Toyota seemingly having gone a bit further than normal tech wise and it might go either way,

    Would you switch if pricing is similar? I always felt Merc does luxury better and Toyota reliability.

    Isn't G-wagen usually priced much higher then the LC?

    Problem is we do not know what Toyota is going to do pricing wise. If they can justify a R50k to R100k increase in price for a face lift on a bakkie who knows what they are going to do with a completely new model.

    Tom.

    I always liked the LC big SUVs save for one factor, it is just too big outside, inside and wheel track. We do not have kids in the house anymore and do not take passengers on trips. Just the two of us.

    The G's luxury inside is difficult to match too.

    But still a decision to ponder over.

    Akio Toyoda said that Toyota should stop making boring cars under his leadership. But at what cost? The quality of my daily drive has not impressed me at all. It looks more exciting but that's it, quality definitely took a step in the wrong direction.

    Do you mean in general, or me personally? If in general I agree, but fact is this is where the bulk of these vehicles sold in this country will spend most of their lives. (paved surfaces). If you mean me, well if I am going to spend that kind of money on something which will suit my requirement, then also yes, the Land Cruiser will not be on the top of my list.

    The 3.5L V6 is available for just under 300000 dirhams. Doubt they'll get the diesel, they aren't big on diesel.

    IF Toyota is sort of busy "phasing out" the V8 D4D, maybe in a couple years' time the 3,3 V6 will be the new engine for the 76/79 Series??

    Even that petrol...........

    Even if down - tuned or whatever the case may be (like in the current V8 D4D in the 70 vs those used in the 200)

    A Prado with that new Petrol engine would also be lekker..........obviously the V6 Diesel in the Prado just wont happen I think, like its been the case for ages. Sort of understandably so, the Prado will then chomp away at 300 Series sales.

    He is pretty smart if somewhat insufferable. He also seems to have a soft spot for Mitsu and Hyundai/Kia.

    I think many of the guys buying these will have them under a plan, so they won't care if there are some niggles. It is however generally good advise to steer clear of a new model until they have worked out the production bugs and everyone is well trained and assembling things smoothly. Having said that this is a halo model and I don't think they would balls it up without some serious testing before letting it loose on the world.
