Everytime one passes me on the hwy ,it sounds like they are doing around 6000rpms!....and that's listening to them from inside a defender!..lol.


For those that own them ,how noisy are they to drive on the Hwy?


Cheers Axle.

Well Axle, "Mach speed" is all about......... ah, forget it. What I meant was that they are going very much faster than yourself.
It was a joke Axle. Talk about lead balloons....!!!! lol
Now don't ask me to explain that one too Axle.

Gee Allan. That is a bad typo, don't you mean Max speed? Mach speed is only a dream while cruising in sleep mode. At Mach speed the aluminium panels would tear off and a blinding meteor shower of rivets would be the result.

The Landcruiser V8 diesel utes were doing 2600 RPM at 110kmh, up until the MY2017 release, when Toyota revised the gearing in 5th gear (overdrive) to reduce the engine RPM to 2200 RPM at 110kmh.

Landcruiser utes have never been noted for quietness, and most of the owners of them, seem to like them making a lot of noise - particularly the V8 burble!

The reduced engine noise level has only accentuated the wind noise caused by the boxy cabin shape, the 1960's-shaped exterior mirrors, and the snorkel.

The Landcruiser ute has suffered from a lot of design deficiencies since the introduction of the V8 diesel - and it's all to do with Toyota's incredible stupidity of "don't change any more in the design, than we absolutely have to".

There's a rumour the new 2019 model has been sighted with a widened rear axle - at long last! - plus a 6 speed transmission.

Now all Toyota have to do, is shift the position of the V8 starter motor (so it doesn't go rusty in a pool of water in the V of the block - and shift it so it doesn't entail removing the fuel injection plumbing to get it out!) - and shift the position of the alternator, so it doesn't fill with water after traversing deep puddles!

Cheers, Ron.

Hang on a minute Ron, the mods for starter and axle and alt position can only be done after careful consideration of all factors and that may take years to go through the design process.
as long as you don't use the engine then the starter lasts quite well. The rear Bulldog, wide front narrow rear, is nearly through that process of design change. They discovered it was like that when they revisited their design sheets a few years ago.
The alternator is self draining so not a problem.

Hi Ron, They might get it all together one day, it just amazes me the design deficiencies they have had from day one,...let alone the cost .

Goes to show when there's been no real competition in that sized ute ,what they have got away with.

Cheers Axle.

I have a brand new ute at work, 2 1/2 weeks old. Same diff and 5 gears, the only downfall is the 1 fuel tank.

Depending which gearbox they have, probably around 2300rpm. The newer ones run about 200rpm lower than those produced pre 2016 ish. The ones with the DPF tend to make a tinnier noise I reckon which might be mistaken for higher revs when mixed with wind and road noise etc. My 76 sits on exactly 2000rpm at 100kph in 5th. I have the new gearbox now. The old one was 2200rpm under the same conditions.

A new 70 will sit at around 2180 RPM at 110kmph.

How may RPM would the Defender theoretically be doing if it could get to 110?

LOL I know how good they were. I had a Landrover 35 years ago.

I will never forget it...... Actually I can't forget it, because I'm reminded of it every time I look at the black stains still on the driveway.

Axle,
All v8 engines at same revs have twice as many power pulses, firings, exhaust blurts as a 4 cyl does at same revs. Of course they sound busy, there is twice as much happening in the same time.

Axle.
Didn't you want your question answered? Your ears may be out of frequency if they sound like 6000rpm. A V8 at 6000rpm has far higher sound than you are claiming.4 pulses x 6000 = 24000 or 4 times the frequency of 240vAC. quite fast. If 6000rpm the Toyota would be nearing 300kmh. Do they really pass you at near that speed? Speed and sound don't seem to match.
What is next months topic?

RMD, You need to slow down, slow up ,lightenup, and not treat this forum like you you own it!. There are others here that have good knowledge as well if you will let them in.

Give me time, i'll think about the next topic!


Cheers till next time
