    I have booked a V6 4L Xtreme.. i have been looking for reviews on that but all reviews are done on the 5.7 V8.. i have a few doubts in mind.. what is the loss of mileage thanks to the additions?? also, if at a later stage i wish to change it back to a standard edition, is it possible to do that??

      Hi Riaz,

      Land Cruiser V6 is a capable off roader. In fact, I own one and often take it to the desert.

      The Xtreme version sold by Al Futtaim Motors is modified by Arctic Trucks. They know their off road well. The suspension setup, wheel size and some plastic parts, stickers on the body are broadly what is different in the Xtreme version.

      Loss of mileage – technically, the vehicle is higher and rides on broader tires, which means there will be some loss of mileage.

      If at a later stage you wish to change it back to standard edition, it is possible. You will need new sets of shocks, springs, tires. Whether to leave the stickers and add on plastic bits to the body is your call.

      Works? Or any more clarity needed?

    I second the comment on test driving the V6 model.  Its very difficult to find reviews on the most popular cars here in the UAE.  Its impossible to find a LC v6 Review just like it is impossible to find a Pajero review.  While we all like to dream about the luxury/sports cars you write about I doubt most of us will ever go out and buy one.

    A 4X4 made with the help of Arctic Trucks with the interior of a Jumeirah property? Sounds like a perfect purchase for tour operators.. But will they?

      A good suggestion Dinesh, but price is the biggest concern. I think a cheaper stripped out version will be good scout vehicle for desert patrol and police. What say?

    Really very well written. 
    -The pictures showing the Legroom etc also is a bonus.

    Could you guys also review the normal GX.R v6 and the VX.R ?
    That would appeal to people more :)

      Thank you Syed. We will make our best efforts in reviewing the GXR-i V6 model.
