This is an attempt at an unbiased review and direct comparison between two vehicles regarded as outstanding overland touring wagons. I have owned both. I have no predetermined preference and I have no interest in promoting one brand over another. This is how I have experienced both and please don't accuse me of being biased. If you think I am being biased - it proves YOU are the one being biased. And any insulting comments about me, or anyone else, and you will be banned from my channel for life.

      I work in KGHM underground, we have Defender's and Land Cruisers and i think that Land sucks... This shit is rust after 2 years and... And shity ford engine... It must be replaced after 20000 km, when our old toyota have 150000 km on the same engine and still work. Land Cruiser is a tank and it don't scared a salt mud and rocks in our mine. But Defender is good... In the village :)

      Just imagine 40k miles from now when the Defender is stuck in the shop for very expensive repairs. Then the Land Cruiser is still pulling along with nothing but oil changes half a million miles later! =) If you do take the Defender out, make sure you have a buddy with you driving a Land Cruiser as you (being in the Defender) will more then likely break down, get stranded and die alone!

      You dont buy a Defender because its reliable, economical, and certainly not high buy one because you want a defender and thats all. If that doesnt make sense to you go for the toyota...

      You clearly know nothing about Land Rovers, you can’t review and know everything about it. It’s stupid. The Land Cruiser is way slower staring, it rises like hell, their uncomfortable. Unreliable, bad for starting. And mostly, because it’s Jap crap. You have to love them to know about them, you can’t just review and know all about it. I can’t believe they continue the stupid Land Cruiser, but not the Defender. I drive a Series III and with the true passion of me and my dad, we love it and don’t doubt it one bit. Of course there are bits and pieces that need to be changed, but Land Rovers are do versatile, that’s LOADS and LOADS of things fit with it. The Land Cruiser is is ugly, big and lumpy. It’s f*cking pig ugly, and I hope it stops production. But, my main point is, how can you compare a 70+ vehicle loved it by million to a stupid Japanese druggie’s SUV. The Land Rover beats that shit anyway.

      Hey Rex. I have driven land Rovers all over Africa, crossed deserts and used them in a lot of exciting places, far from civilisation. And they are wonderful at it. But so is this model Land Cruiser. They also work very well. It's sad that Land Rover no longer makes the Defender. I agree. But the Toyota is very well made, very reliable and now we use them. And they work very well for us too.

      I love Landrovers, sentimental value and in the old days they were a great option. In previous era's they were perhaps the best in offroad capability.
      HOWEVER, I own a Landcruiser 78. Need that Toyota reliability.

      I'd get a Landcruiser, but not this one... While the Landcruiser is the obvious choice compared with the Defender, these wagons are very utilitarian and are quite tight inside (especially the back seat) for a full sized 4wd... I'd go out and get an older 100 series 6 cylinder, which still have solid front axles but a lot more interior space... The 6 cylinder toyota motor is also more reliable

      Open diff in the back of cruiser when the locker is not engaged holds it back here. That's why front locker is always better if just choosing one locker. I think if it only had a last in the rear may have done better in the hill test.
