Best truck ever..just thinking my 2004 100series is now 14 years old and I still drive it like I’m king of the road and off road .. my kids grew up admiring this piece of outstanding engineering.. they still don’t dare to put their feet on the seats
Hey dude!!! what about Suzuki SJ413, / Suzuki Samurai / Suzuki Jimny? i think that many of audience would love this, including the overturn fake claim from Consumers Union, and please, as you said, we got power trough comments, what about to makes vids more extensive, i love Donut Media, i send every Yota vid to my crew all around the World, Spain, Australia, Us, Mexico, Portugal, keep doing it dude, i love it, in fact, i can help joing with graphic design and multimedia skills
Also forgot to mention that the landcruiser prado was developed as a level below the landcruiser for those who wanted the bare bones off roading capabilities of the landcruiser without all the luxury bells and whistles abeit still constructed using a ladder frame chassis
I am from the Middle East, but lived in the US for 6 years. I rarely see Land Cruiser in the US, but in the Middle East you see it everywhere. One of the best cars to ever be manufactured. One time I approached a man who had a 1999 Land Cruiser and told him whether he wants to sell it or not (he lives in Texas) and he said "Absolutely not! It's like my baby... no one can give his baby away! I spoke with him in 2013-2014 so the car was around 15 yrs old!
I don’t know that they are still making the 105. It’s certainly not in Australia, the biggest market in the world for Landcruiser. They are still making the 70 series. In fact they’ve just done another update purely to keep Australian mining companies happy.
nice video! lots i didnt know even though im a big toyota fan. i could spend days in that musieum.
i couldnt help but notice however during the first half of the video you talk about how simplicity and then go on about how great the unnessisarily complex features of the new landcruisers are......
