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.

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
