The 80 Series Toyota Land Cruiser is hands down the best full sized SUV of it’s era. It offers owners the perfect blend of plush comfort and rugged durability. With unmatched on and off road capabilities the 80 series doesn’t lack in any department. Whether it be off road exploration, hitting the trails on the weekend, long interstate journeys or local runs to the store the HDJ81 can handle it all with ease.

The spacious interior offers comfortable seating for 5 passenger and a cavernous trunk for cargo. Featuring power windows, power adjustable mirrors, power sunroof, drivers seat power lumbar support, idle up control, ice cold A/C and warm heat, OEM compass, altimeter, and a tilt steering wheel. The cloth seats are comfortable for long distance cruising, and the large cabin offers plenty of legroom for all passengers. This Diesel 80s Series also features a Poly Shevron Dash Cover to absorb heat through the windshield and prevent any damage on the dashboard. Additionally, the previous owner has added a functional backup camera, as can be seen through the Panasonic Head Unit.

This Cruisers exterior is found in a well kept custom Black Gloss paint, which shines brightly and compliments the body lines of this legendary SUV. This example is found on a set of Black Aftermarket 16″ Wheels, wrapped in a meaty set of Toyo Open Country tires with plenty of life left! It features the factory rear tire mount on the rear door, which is commonly removed on these 80s Series Cruisers. Also found on this HDJ81 are the OEM side steps, providing ease of access for all of the passengers. The Black Rain Guards add to the overall sleek look of the vehicle and match the wheels and body.

Under the hood of this example is one of the most well respected diesel engines ever produced by Toyota, the 1HD-FT. While the horsepower numbers of this example only ring in at about 168hp, the low end torque is nearly double, at 280lb-ft. This motor was never offered domestically in the United States, and what a shame this is, as it is one of the most revered engines by Toyota enthusiasts worldwide. Additionally, parts sourcing for these engines is a breeze, with ample aftermarket support, both here and abroad. This motor is paired to a 4 Speed Automatic transmission, and provides power to all 4 wheels with the help of the multi-option transfer case, allowing for both high and low drive modes.

These HDJ81 Landcruisers are becoming very difficult to find in this condition. If you are in the market for a truly reliable Toyota SUV, this Turbo Diesel 80s Series is sure to live up to its legendary expectations.
