I’m also going to drive the Mega Cruiser and show you what it’s like behind the wheel of this amazing Toyota Hummer.Like the Hummer, the Mega Cruiser was originally designed primarily for military use[3] with the vehicle seeing duty as a transport vehicle in the Japan Self Defense Forces.

The BXD20 version was made for civilian sales and was available with two roof types, the standard low roof and the optional high roof.The Mega Cruiser was designed as a 4-door full-size SUV and features a 4.1 L turbo diesel inline-4 engine.The engine was rated at 114 kW (153 hp) and 382 N⋅m (282 lb⋅ft) of torque at 1,800 rpm while also being very robust.


A 4-speed Aisin-Warner automatic transmission with a two-speed transfer case transfers power to all four wheels.Its wheelbase is 3,395 mm (134 in) and it is 5,090 mm (200 in) in length. The vehicle is 2,075 mm (82 in) high and 2,170 mm (85 in) wide.
