The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the world’s most popular SUVs and has been around for decades.
Have you ever wondered why a VVIP like Prime Minister Modi would choose a Toyota Land Cruiser to build an armoured vehicle? Well, this blog will attempt to answer this question in detail. SUVs like the Land Cruiser need no introduction. It has existed since World War II. At that time he was used in warfare. However, as time went on, Toyota believed that the Land Cruiser’s robustness and reliability would allow it to enter the mass market. Thus, the mass-market Land Cruiser was born in America in the mid-1950s. Within a few years, it became the best-selling Toyota in the country. The rest, as they say, is history.
Armoured Toyota Land Cruiser
This video was uploaded to YouTube by Biturbo Media. This YouTuber explains that the Land Cruiser is the most used vehicle to be converted into an armoured vehicle by celebrities around the world. These include top politicians like Prime Minister Modi and top stars like Salman Khan. There are various steps to convert a regular car into an armoured vehicle. This includes adding bulletproof steel to the case, leaded glass bulletproof glass, polycarbonate lenses, and more. Heavy-duty bumpers and tires that can go some distance even after a punctured tire, and rebuilt mechanisms including mechanical parts and engine upgrades to carry the extra load.

Although these are additional accessories, it is important to realize that any vehicle undergoing these modifications must first have a solid foundation. Land Cruisers have always been known as rugged SUVs. This is why it was founded during the war. In addition, it is widely regarded as one of the world’s most reliable SUVs. People have already put a million miles on it because its engines and components are designed to last for decades.
What We Think
Toyota vehicles in general, and the Land Cruiser SUV in particular, have proven to be incredibly durable. It can be seen from the fact that the used price of the Land Cruiser is almost the same level as the original asking price. The waiting time for the current generation model is a whopping four years. Therefore, the fact that these engines and vehicles are very reliable was the main reason for choosing the Land Cruiser over other vehicles that would be converted into armoured vehicles for VVIP. These days, Toyota also puts a lot of effort into interior design and comfort to put stars to shame. I can’t think of a better car for this job.
