AmericaThe old SUV model is 27 years old and has only run about 1,600 km, sold at auction for the amount of 136,000 USD, buying a luxury SUV Mercedes G-class.

The Land Cruiser is dark green and everything is original. Vehicle sold by second owner after one year of ownership. Before that, the SUV spent nearly 26 years in the collection of its first owner. The vehicle was delivered to the new owner with the original owner’s manual, a “clean” history report and New Hampshire registration papers.

More importantly, the Land Cruiser is very well equipped. The list includes front and rear differential locks, electric sunroof, rear tow hook, rear spoiler, roof rack, electric antenna, sliding rear window, air conditioning.

4.5-liter engine, in-line 6, capacity of 212 horsepower and 373 Nm of torque, 4-wheel drive, 4-speed automatic transmission and two-speed auxiliary transmission. The last time the SUV was serviced was October 2020 to change the transmission belt and battery, as well as change the engine oil.

The question is, for $136,000, should I buy a 27-year-old Toyota Land Cruiser or a brand new Mercedes G-class? But some people think that for a fan of Japanese SUVs, the reason is easy to understand, especially when the new generation Land Cruiser has just been launched but will not be sold in the US, where sales have been sluggish for many years. From its debut in 2007 to 2020, the current generation of the Land Cruiser had annual sales of just over 3,000 vehicles.
