According to the article Toyota are testing the 2019 ute model with 6 speed box, auto option and rear track correction.Auto for the ute might be interesting.

Have Googled more info but haven't seen any more info

If they had an auto option a few years ago I might have considered one, not everyone wants and ancient slosh box, specially these days.

Stupid writer does not even know when Landcruisers were introduced by Sir Leslie - 70s - nah mate try the 50s.

If the writer gets simple things wrong what else has he got wrong.

Some journalists are like some artists, who claim it is an artistic impression and you have to work out what it means.
Same with writing, it is only delivered through a head, which has a bit of an idea about something. What they believe is reality for them.

Since they both make money out of their efforts,
Modern art is:
Painted by the untalented,
Sold by the unscrupulous,
To the totally B----y stupid.

I imagine writing articles has a similar meaningful parallel.

We are both impressed.

Thats a scary true statement.

Anything to attract web traffic aye.

Toyota has a history of not changing the 70 and i highly doubt it will ever get a bigger engine. The 1VD is far far to good of an engine in my opinion and i think toyota knows it.

I doubt the wheel track issue will be fixed and an auto seems highly unlikely because toyota will be wary to invest anymore into the 70 series as it has limited lifespan and has likely fully given a return on investment since the 2017 update. Sadly the 70 series will not last forever and if there is an update it may jist be a revised bonnet or new headlights.

Cheers jed

Ahhhh the auto box and rear track correction story comes up every year, I would be highly surprised if it ever happens. It is not financially viable for Toyota to do.

Everybody downs Toyota about the narrow rear track.

Never seen any one complain about the leaf spring patrol ute that was 100 mm narrower in the rear !!!

I don't have any probs with the narrow track in my 76 series either. Just something for people to whinge about I think.

Never thought the smaller rear track on my dual cab 79 was a big issue whilst running standard rims and tyres, it was noticable in sand but not the end of the world....but after switching to wider rims and tyres, the vehicle is a pig to drive in soft sand, verging on being dangerous at times. I also noticed the rear track issue whilst driving The Plenty Highway recently, the rear end was rather skatey in some of the long bulldust holes and loose gravel. Having driven a 105 series for many years over the same terrains, it was a so much more stable vehicle to drive.....my next mod on the 79 will be a rear track correction.
