Toyota Land Cruiser Namib
Back by popular demand!
Land Cruiser Namib – Back by popular demand
In the third quarter of 2019 Toyota released the Namib limited edition Land Cruiser 79 double-cab, with a limited run of just 60 units. Well, those 60 units disappeared off showroom floors in a flash, and public demand has been such that a second run of the Namib edition will be made.
What’s more, Toyota has decided to give single-cab Land Cruisers the same treatment, again due to popular demand. 60 units of each, single-cab and double-cab, will be made, and they have been available since February.
The Namib uses the same legendary engine as the standard Land Cruiser, the revered 1VD-FTV 4.5-litre turbodiesel engine that churns out 151 kW and 430 Nm from a low 1200 rpm (up to 3200 rpm).
The Namib edition retains all of the standard Land Cruiser 79 D-Cab V8 specification, which include a, front power socket, electric windows, tilt and telescopic steering column, remote locking and anti-theft system. The safety systems include driver and passenger airbags alongside an anti-lock braking system (ABS).
What is standard is the following:

Front grille with robust mesh design and prominent Toyota lettering
Stylised Namib badging on fenders and tailgate
Heavy-duty steel front bumper with integrated nudge-bar and headlight protectors
