Toyota LandCruiser: 200 Series V8 petrol axed
« on: September 07, 2019, 08:34:00 PM »
And with nissan going diesel,  Yota goes no more V8 Petrol

Quote

The Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series has had its V8 petrol engine culled, leaving the more expensive twin-turbo V8 diesel the sole powertrain option in Australia.

After the petrol variant disappeared from the company's local consumer site, a Toyota Australia spokesperson confirmed the changes with Drive, issuing the following statement:

Toyota Australia can confirm from August 2019 production it has discontinued all V8 petrol LandCruiser 200 variants, due to low sales volumes.
There is no change to the availability of V8 diesel variants and we have no plans for this to change.
We can also confirm that there is no change to the LC70’s availability of drivetrains as a result of this.

Nissan is going diesel? I've not heard about this, the Y62 Series 5 is due out soon, and there is no suggestion it is moving away from its current petrol engine?
