Up for auction is my rare in the U.S. and absolutely beautiful 1980 BJ40 Toyota Landcruiser with 4 spd manual and
2B 3.2L, indestructible Toyota Diesel Engine. The odometer currently shows approximately 150,000 km (turned over
once) which comes out to approximately 93,000 original miles. This may change because I do drive it some for fun
and because it is the most reliable vehicle I own. The truck has absolutely no rust anywhere and was resprayed in
its original Toyota Red color in 2014. This was a frame off repaint and the truck had very little rust at the time
so there was no need to replace body panels-just to primer, sand, and paint. The paint job is not perfect, but it
does look beautifully renewed and shines in the mid-day New Mexico sun. The instrument cluster, seats, switches,
wiring, door lock hardware, windshield wipers, windshield sprayer, fuse panel, wiring, taillights, license plate,
axels, transmission, frame, motor, and various other parts are all original. Some of the ancillary accessory parts
such as turn signals, hood latches, sun visors, and some other wear items are replacement items sourced as Toyota
OEM, mostly new old stock, sometimes used. Comes with a Toyota Landcruiser original 3-piece floor mat for the front
seats.
This truck has been sorted and gone through and it drives and rides great. It sits at the original ride height on
original leaf springs and shackles. The shocks were replaced at some point in the past. The wheels are Toyota OEM
15" steel wheels with Toyota hubcaps. The tires are brand new as the old ones were showing signs of dry rot and
cracking. This is a beautiful, nearly show truck, that you will absolutely love.

Toyota reaffirms commitment to body-on-frame SUVs

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 15:30:00 EST

Toyota sold 121,055 Highlander CUVs in 2012, according to Automotive News. By comparison, it sold 78,457 examples of four different body-on-frame, truck-based SUVs (4Runner, FJ Cruiser, Sequoia and Land Cruiser). One could argue then, that the traditional SUVs aren't pulling their weight from a sales perspective. Yet that isn't stopping Toyota from reaffirming its commitment to a segment that has seen its former champions - Ford, General Motors and Chrysler - abandon it with alarming speed. Ford and GM still offer body-on frame utilities, but only in the very largest offerings, catering to seven or even eight passengers. Everything outside of the Expedition or Tahoe rides now on a unibody.
Toyota's decision to stick with the technology is good news if you're in the market for smaller SUVs that are still capable of heading well off the beaten path. Outside of the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee (a unibody) and perhaps Nissan Xterra, there's not much in terms of capable SUVs between $20,000 and $50,000. As the Toyota brand's US head, Bill Fay, says, "Clearly, the trend has shifted, but there is still an owner base that is interested in these vehicles."
We don't doubt Fay on that, but it may also be somewhat telling that Toyota's SUV lineup is aging, and we haven't seen or heard much about replacement models in the pipeline. Admittedly, the 4Runner (pictured) has been facelifted for 2014, but it's mostly cosmetic in nature. Despite Toyota's posturing, we still expect its body-on-frame lineup to thin in the coming years as sales dwindle and escalating fuel-economy standards make business cases even tougher. Here's hoping that Toyota manages to keep at least one rough-and-tumble SUV in its lineup in the coming years.

Toyota TRD Pro lineup coming next week

Thu, 30 Jan 2014 10:44:00 EST

A mysterious Toyota commercial recently popped up on YouTube teasing a new TRD Pro lineup for the Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner, and now we're getting our first official word straight from the automaker on the matter. Courtesy of its Facebook page, Toyota is promising that the TRD Pro models will be introduced on February 6th, ready to "conquer the great outdoors."
This date just so happens to mark the first day of the always-truck-friendly Chicago Auto Show, so while Toyota isn't saying as much, we're almost certain the trucks will show up next week in the Windy City. It's not clear what sort of upgrades TRD Pro brings, but it definitely includes black wheels and a tweaked front end featuring a thick, single-bar grille and bold lettering in place of the stylized Toyota logo (shown above on the Tundra).
Scroll down to see the video, and head over to Toyota's Facebook page to see a teaser image of the 4Runner TRD Pro.

Toyota to buck engine downsizing trend, may go larger and turbo-free

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:31:00 EST

Turbocharging isn't really Toyota's specialty, and the Japanese automaker isn't being shy about acknowledging it. Koei Saga, a senior managing officer in charge of drivetrain research and development, says that eschewing turbos and increasing displacement of engines using the Atkinson cycle can produce better power gains without sacrificing fuel economy, Automotive News reports.
Toyota is investing heavily in larger-displacement Atkinson-cycle engines in addition to turbocharged engines, but Saga doesn't think the automaker will use turbocharging across many product lines. He apparently remains unconvinced that the technology "makes the world better."
In Toyota's eyes then, Atkinson cycle engines do make the world better, and here's how. Their pistons complete four processes - intake, compression, power and exhaust - in one revolution of the crankshaft, and the power stroke is longer than the compression stroke. Traditional Otto cycle engines require two crankshaft revolutions to accomplish those same four operations and have equal-length compression and power strokes. Atkinson cycle engines are more efficient, but less power dense, though increasing displacement can offset that shortfall.
