In terms of excellence, capability, comfort, and striking road presence, the Land Cruiser V8 has never needed more. With its more sophisticated exterior and interior design, plusher interior, and cutting-edge handling innovations for outstanding off-road capabilities, the new model goes even further. Expect the following from Toyota’s upcoming flagship 4×4.
High-intensity discharge units and LED daytime running lights are two new frontal design elements added to the Land Cruiser V8.
It uses the same platform as the Toyota Sequoia and is based on the Lexus LX570. The 5.7-liter V8 engine that powers the Land Cruiser V8 generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Eight-speed automated gearbox and four-wheel drive are standard.
Production of V8 began in 1951 when Japan’s National Police Reserve (NPR) began using it. For LC, there has been no turning back since. A V8 engine can also be acquired quite easily because they have been a factory option for more than 20 years.
Alternatively, you may create your own version of the V8 LandCruiser theme, as many native engineers have done before today.
It has recently been found that the V8 uses the most fuel. There are a lot of laws and a large tax on gas-guzzlers in Kenya. As a result, most automakers are now concentrating on producing fuel-efficient vehicles.
Due to consumers’ propensity to purchase cars with low maintenance expenses and cheap gasoline, this tactic may increase sales.
Every 100 km, a 2017 Toyota V8 uses 14.4 liters of petrol on average. This indicates that 7.2 gallons of petrol are used for every 50 km. When compared to other cars on Kenyan roads, this one appears a little steep.
Most cars used an average of 8 liters of petrol during a 100-kilometer test. This indicates that the Toyota V8 consumes approximately 6 liters of petrol more than other cars. There are several negative repercussions from the increase in fuel prices.
These days, a lot of people have to choose public transport over driving. Those who have kept their V8 status appear to be more prepared to spend more for an opulent lifestyle. This vehicle can be used to calculate the daily fuel consumption of an employee who commutes 50 kilometers each way to work.
