How will I gauge the performance of Toyota Land Cruiser?

You need to take into consideration parameters like the top speed, time of acceleration, engine displacement, power, torque, engine capacity, engine description, etc. in order to gauge the performance of any vehicle. Now if you take into account the only available model of Toyota Land Cruiser 200, the VX (Diesel), then we find that it has a top speed of 200 kilometers per liter, acceleration time of 9.2 seconds, and it comes with 4.5-litre 261.49bhp 32V 1VD FTV Diesel Engine with 4461 cc displacement. The car has maximum power of 261.49 bhp @ 3400 rpm and maximum torque of 650 Nm @ 1600 to 2600 rpm. The vehicle has eight cylinders with four valves per cylinder, and the turning radius of the wheel base of 5.9 meters. The drivetrain is of 4WD type with turbo charger, 6 speed gearbox, rack and pinion steering gear, ventilated disc type brakes and Common Rail fuel supply system. All these specifications suggest that Toyota Land Cruiser offers really good value for money as far as its power is concerned.
People are always asking if X or Y performance enhancement will improve economy, which is a tricky question to answer. In order to get more power from an engine we need to improve the efficiency of it In theory this will lead to improved fuel economy, however with more power under your right foot drivers tend to use it more, attempting more overtaking, powering up hills rather than pottering, e.t.c. In most cases if you don't drive like a loony you should notice an improvement in economy, particularly with the big diesel engines. If you sit down and do the sums you will never save enough to cover your costs, but at least the car will be a lot more fun to drive
