Gurkha

Toyota's greatest off roaders.

The FJ looks like a tribute to the old Land Cruisers.? I somehow am impressed with the retro modern look' date=' though.? The MC is inspired from the Humvee, I guess.?

The MC is indeed an apt and far superior answer to the Humvee, check the videos and you will see why.

Check how handicapped the Hummer is against MB Gelandewagen.

Have you checked the videos of the MC?[/quote']

 

Yup, Gurkha, seen all of them.  Thanks for sharing the wonderful info. The videos were really awesome, I particularly liked the one where it tackles the concrete blocks like a routine job.  Finally I've found the ideal vehicle that is suited for Kerala's roads!  smiley36.gif

 

I didn't understand what the switch was used for when it was in slush, kindly help on that.  I''ve no experience of driving 4WDs as yet.  And these Japs are crazy, they copy Western originals and make them even better!

Hummer is already here and no.......Toyota has no intentions of launching MC or FJ, they didn't even bother with the excellent Fortuner. Even though the Fortuner is a true off roader, the price aspect makes it uncompetitive to the average Indian buyer who would rather go for the flashy Grand Vitara or the Endeavour.

Jitesh,

It was for locking the front, center and rear diff, a feature not in the Hummer, this way, all four wheels would get equal power even if any of them are spinning without any traction.

You and I would, along with few Indians, the FJ interior is as stark as the Gurkha, most Indians would be horrified to shell out Rs.40L for a FJ.
