The Toyota Land Cruiser took the lead in an American endurance survey involving 15.8 million cars, exceeding 300,000 kilometers.

If you look at the road, you will count many Toyota cars driving by. The Japanese automaker is the most popular automobile brand in Nigeria. It did not attain this height by chance but by its offerings. One reason Nigerians love this brand especially is its durability. But do you know how durable this brand is? A recent study by a US-based car publication has confirmed Toyota’s high durability. Its findings reveal that the brand has the highest endurance level among cars, recording more than 300,000 kilometers.


The Land Cruiser is an off-road champion!

The study was executed with a research population of 15.8 million vehicles purchased in 2019, with the goal of figuring out models that could go up to 321,868km i.e 200,000 miles. 15 models with the highest endurance level were shortlisted, and Toyota dominated the list, grabbing 7 spots. Sitting on the number 1 spot was the Toyota Land Cruiser, leading by 15.7%.

The Land Cruiser is one of Toyota’s most popular models due to its strength, agility, and ruthlessness. Driving the Land Cruiser on the road does not do justice to its power. Take it for an off-road ride, and you will understand what all the fuss is about.

For over 60 years, the Land Cruiser continues to be a frontrunner in the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) category. It is particularly popular among Nigerians for its rugged nature. Motorists are left feeling sad when driving across the numerous bad roads across the nation, but not with the Land Cruiser. It literally crushes anything in its path.

The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser does not offer less. Instead, it ups the ante. It offers features that were absent in its predecessors, giving users a more rewarding driving experience. There is enough room to accommodate no fewer than 8 passengers. High performance is top on the list considering its V8 engine that is complemented with 8-speed transmission.
