Watch the off-road competition between Toyota Land Cruiser and Toyota Hilux

Two famous Toyota off-road models had the opportunity to compete with each other in an interesting video.

Letting two off-road cars encounter each other on a drag race is an inappropriate and unfair practice. Off-road vehicles always have a main feature that helps the driver conquer challenging environments such as deserts, rivers, and of course, slippery hills. Therefore, the YouTube channel “carwow” organized a drag race on a steep hill between Toyota Land Cruiser and Toyota Hilux.

Hilux and Land Cruiser are two famous off-road capable models of Toyota, so this is an interesting competition between the brand’s siblings. Besides drag racing, “carwow” also puts the two cars through various off-road challenges to find out which is the ultimate all-terrain vehicle branded Toyota.

Toyota Land Cruiser has quite impressive specifications. It is equipped with a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine that produces 204 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. The particular car in the video is a commercial version with a manual transmission. Therefore, it does not have many accessories and only comes with 2 seats in the cabin.
In contrast, the Hilux in this case is the Invincible X Edition. Like the Land Cruiser, it has a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine that produces 204 hp but with 500 Nm of peak torque. It is also equipped with an automatic transmission, and an electronically locked rear differential and center console.
The first challenge of the two cars is a downhill drag racing. At the start, the Land Cruiser took the lead, and the Hilux was suddenly left behind. Next is a drag race downhill, and in this challenge, the car that finishes last wins. As you’d imagine, the Land Cruiser’s “medieval” manual transmission lost out to the Hilux’s cutting-edge downhill control.
The next challenge is going through a winding forest road. Surprisingly, the Land Cruiser beat the Hilux with a time difference of 2 seconds. In the challenge of going uphill on slippery surfaces, the Hilux once again won with better ground clearance and a locking rear differential.
The “carow” team took on two more challenges, the balance test with the winning Hilux, and the hill grip challenge with the winning Land Cruiser. Thus, the end result is a tie and both Toyota cars show their own strengths.
