LAND CRUISER NAMIB – BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
23 Mar 2020

The Land Cruiser Namib edition was introduced to the South African market in Q3 of 2019. Featuring a bespoke overlanding accessory package and aesthetic enhancements, the Namib was exceptionally well received – with all 60 units selling out by January 2020.
With this positive market response in mind, Toyota has commissioned a re-run of the Land Cruiser Namib and added a single-cab derivative based on customer requests.
The single – and double-cab Land Cruiser Namib editions will share a common package, distinguishing them from their ‘standard’ Land Cruiser 79 brethren.
The Namib Package
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
Large, high-intensity LED spotlights with protective covers
Tubular rear step with integrated towbar
Protective loadbin skin
Glovebox with integrated cooling duct
Protective canvas seat covers with Namib insignia and anti-scuff panel
Roof-mounted console with LED lighting and storage binnacles
Upgraded off-road suspension
265/75/R16 Cooper Discoverer S/T Maxx versions with white
The Namib edition is available in two colours; Ivory White and Sand Beige.
The ‘Namib’ makes use of the revered 1VD-FTV 4.5-litre turbodiesel engine, churning out 151 kW and 430 Nm from a low 1200 rpm (up to 3200 rpm). The Fuel Consumption index is pegged at 11.3 l/100km.
The Namib edition retains all of the standard Land Cruiser 79 D-Cab V8 specification, which include a touchscreen audio system with built-in Navigation, Bluetooth, front power socket, power windows, tilt and telescopic steering column, remote central locking and anti-theft system. The safety systems include driver and passenger airbags alongside an anti-lock braking system (ABS).
Popular international automotive website Jalopnik even published an article labeling the Land Cruiser 79 Namib, the coolest Land Cruiser US-citizens can’t buy. The article includes references such as “beautifully brackish 70-series” and “coolest-looking and most utilitarian truck”. The Jalopnik reviews editor, Andrew Collins, recently experienced the virtues of the Land Cruiser Namib on a 1600 km trek around South Africa.

A 3-year/100 000 km warranty is provided and customers can purchase optional service plans according to their needs.
