2022 Toyota Land Cruiser Has Been Converted Into A Pickup Truck In Australia
Creative Conversions from Australia now affords a conversion that turns the brand new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 right into a double-cab pickup. The setup implies that clients can haul bigger m-es into the wilderness compared to the same old SUV model.
The newest Land Cruiser was never meant to become a pickup. It does share its TNGA-F platform with the Toyota Tundra, but even then, plans for the 300 Series only involved a trunk—no bed. That makes these conversions a whole lot trickier, and since they’re only offered with four doors like the Land Cruiser SUV, wheelbase modifications are still required to fit the tray out back.
To create this conversion, they (Creative Conversions) spent roughly $1.5 million, which included purchasing three brand-new Land Cruisers, 15,000 man hours, loads of 3D rendering, and multiple chassis and axle upgrades to ensure it can still carry a load.
Customers can choose three conversion choices, relying on what they should do with the truck. For comparability, an inventory Land Cruiser LC300 has a gross car m- (GVM) ranking of seven,231 kilos (3,280 kilograms) in Australia and might tow as much as 7,716 lbs (3,500 kg). The entry-level model of this pickup variant has an 8,378-lb (3,800-kg) GVM and might tow as much as 7,716 lbs (3,500 kg). The subsequent step has a 9,910-lb (4,495-kg) GVM and might tow 7,716 lbs (3,500 kg). Finally, there is a model with a 9,910-lb (4,495-kg) GVM and 9,259-lb (4,200-kg) tow ranking. The Australian 300 Series gets a twin-turbo 3.3-litre diesel power plant as standard.
