The 11 ways the Toyota LC79 is different to the mainstream utes

9. Engine size

The LC79 runs a 4.5L V8. The others 4 to 6 cylinder engines of between 2 and 3.2L.

WIN OR LOSE? your choice. For many, the engine size is a drawcard. In reality, with today’s tech there’s no need to use a 4.5L engine to get only 150kW and 440Nm. All it does is waste fuel. It doesn’t drive any better, or offer any better performance, onroad or offroad.
