About Toyota Land Cruiser 200 (Part 1)

Today I would like to share my impressions of the meeting and driving a unique SUV, to be more precise, I am about the legendary Land Cruiser Station Wagon produced by the no less legendary Japanese manufacturer Toyota.

The offroaders of this model have proven themselves so well in all markets of the world, that I will refrain from expanding upon their versatility and outstanding off-road characteristics. Now, let's focus on one of the many versions of this model with the body number VDJ200 and model code VDJ200L-GPMNZV. This special model has been in production, in very few batches, since September 2007. So what are the differences of this car from other Land Cruisers? Let's start with the engine compartment. This car is equipped with a 4.5-liter V8 1VD-FTV twin-turbo diesel engine and an intercooler, which produces 235 HP. This engine is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission, which is rareness for such cars.

Thanks to this monumental couple, this heavy vehicle, which weighs 2.6 tones, easily accelerates from 0 to 100km/h just in 8.6 seconds. Specially for this model, the Toyota engineers designed a two-section fuel tank with a capacity of 93+45 liters. Thus, with an average fuel consumption of 10.2L/100km, this off-road vehicle has a travelling range of over 1300 kilometers, which undoubtedly increases its potential in extreme conditions.
