Possibly the handwringers in the AustralianToyota marketing department think they know whats best for their customers.... I suppose it saves customers making those hard decisions... :)

Another thing we miss out on is a Short wheel base 7# series with the V8 TD, wouldn't THAT be a weapon.

I guess Toyota pay some brilliant figures to marketing people who have decided that there isn't an economical market in Australia for manual 200 Series Landcruisers. Sure is a shame.

My personal observation is that Toyota has shifted their targets towards those people wanting to pull heavy vans, rather than those who want a tough, brilliant 4WD to enable them to penetrate the depth of this country of ours.

To my mind, the 80 Series was the last GREAT 4x4 that Toyota produced. Yes, the 100 and 200 Series vehicles are beautiful cars... But the 80 Series? They were magic.

(I will admit to druelling over one or two 200 Series Landcruisers I have seen on the road... Then I ask the owners how much modification they have done. I've all too commonly seen people spend nearly the price of a new 200 Series on the upgrades. Reminds me why I continue to keep my trusted 80 Series.)

From the website it looks like it has the single turbo version of the V8 Diesel the 70 series in Australia have. It quotes "Power (KW/rpm) 162/3600" which is what the single turbo delivers. So I guess it has the same 5 speed manual transmission.
