Poor sales to blame for LandCruiser V8 petrol being axed in Australia.

Toyota Australia has quietly axed the petrol V8 LandCruiser from Australian dealerships and its websites, with poor sales considered the main reason. Indeed, year-to-date just 500 petrol V8 LandCruisers have found homes out of the more than 8000 that have been sold this year.

Toyota Australia is on the record saying that August was the end of the line for the V8 petrol in Australia, meaning that no more orders will be taken for the petrol variant. "The Landcruiser 200 series has discontinued all petrol variants from August 2019 production onwards," confirmed a spokesperson from Toyota Australia. "This was in response to low market demand for this variant."

Where does this leave the Lexus? It’s still offering the LX 570 which runs the same 5.7L V8 petrol engine with Lexus on the record as saying it is business as usual for that model.
