Toyota Landcruiser Petrol Versus Diesel. The new diesel engines produce more power, more torque and superior fuel economy to the rattling engines of days gone by. For heavy duty off road work and towing the turbo diesel power is very hard to beat. There are however a couple of trade offs you need to consider when choosing a diesel over petrol.
You can expect a higher initial purchase price and the cost per liter is higher at the pump. Resale values on landcruiser diesels are more often than not dollar for dollar higher than their petrol counterparts. At the end of the day you need to consider the type of use your going to undertake and base your decision on that. The V8 LPG powered option is also worthy of consideration.
