Historical
: In January of 1998, the 80-series underwent a model change and re-emerged as the Land Cruiser 100. With the development of the Land Cruiser 100, Toyota created a 4WD with improved on-road performance, without sacrificing its traditional off-road abilities. With double wishbone suspension and rack and pinion steering, the Land Cruiser 100 was designed to feel more like a passenger car than its heavy-duty predecessors. To improve riding comfort and steering stability, hydraulic vehicle height adjustment and dynamic suspension control were added as options, aiming at improved performance on paved roads.
Though the Land Cruiser 100 continues to evolve as a passenger car, there are still users overseas who drive it off-road. To meet these needs, such as in Australia and other rugged environments, Toyota has created a Land Cruiser 105-series with rigid coil springs in the suspension.
