Toyota's Land Cruiser has always been the preferred mode of transport in some of the world's harshest environments - and is particularly popular in its more accessible 'Light Duty Series' form. A fourth generation 'J150' version of this model series arrived in 2009 and was substantially improved in 2014 to create the car we're going to look at here as a potential used buy.
The post-2014-era 'J150' 'Light Duty Series' Land Cruiser certainly smartened up its act, but it still remained a proper off roader intended for a proper 4x4 lifestyle, not the smiley marketing one you see in the brochures of lesser SUV models. The likelihood is that it'll never let you down and it'll very comfortably get you and six passengers wherever you want to go, be your destination Kensington or Kenya. Such has always been the appeal of the Land Cruiser.
This revised post-2014 MK4 model though, had had its all-round on and off road superiority threatened by the excellence of rivals like Land Rover's Discovery. Which is why Toyota responded in kind, producing a vehicle just as capable and probably better suited to the many third world users who wouldn't be seen dead driving anything else. It's a slightly better bet for roadgoing use too, though if it's a tarmac SUV you want, then this isn't it.
No, this remains a vehicle fit for purpose, a car that'll still be happily ploughing through mud ruts when you've long ago forgotten you ever owned the thing. As an ultimately capable long term ownership proposition, there isn't much that beats it.
