LandCruiser 300 series

Hi Everyone

just wondering if anyone is yet towing with their vans with the new 300 series LandCruiser. I’m looking at getting a GX as like the vinyl. Specs all add up on paper too, so no identifiable weight/load issues for our van with  ATM 3080 and typical loaded travel weight around 2900kh and ball weight around 280-300 depending on water and gear, and the huge 785kg vehicle payload (versus the standard 200 series at 610kg). 

Wondering how the 300 series handles when towing. Have towed with upgraded 200 series and tows beautifully. Have watched all the reviews etc I can find and all present fine but you can’t beat hearing of true customers real experiences. 
regards

matt

Hi Matt,

The only reviews you will get at the moment are from motoring journalists, as the vehicle (300series) won’t be available for public sale until possibly late this year…..any reports you read at the moment will be possibly biased toward Toyota……not doubting it will be a very capable performer!

Hi Matt and Tony

300s are being delivered albeit slowly, and we hope to get ours - a GLX - sometime this decade! But possibly February. I have had a short drive of a VX and a GXL but only a few ks. The higher the spec in the 300s you go the less load capacity, which is why, apart from $$$$s, we chose the GXL, although the GX beats it by about 85kg.  

Matt, Glen from Kedron made a U Tube or suchlike of a test he was involved in courtesy of Toyota. I rang and spoke to Glen and he was very impressed with the way it performed with one of their vans hooked up to it. Google Toyota Landcruiser 300 goes outback caravanning. Kedron now has a 300. 

Dealers are forbidden to discount however, but there could be  a few exceptions. A word of warning: if you are to have any accessories fitted, do that post sale because if included in the purchase price you pay luxury tax on them.

Cheers, Barry
