The Toyota Mega Cruiser was first seen at the 1993 Tokyo Motor Show, two year later it went into production. The Toyota Mega Cruiser was Japan's answer to the Hummer H1. Originally conceived as a military vehicle, there was a number which were put to civilian use. Many Mega Cruisers also found their way to the Police and other emergency services.

Powering the massive 7 ft wide (2.1 metre) Toyota Mega Cruiser is a 4.1 litre inline four-cylinder engine which develops 150 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque. This is connected to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, the Mega Cruiser is fitted with full-time four-wheel-drive.

The Mega Cruiser played a part in helping Toyota understand what makes a capable off-road vehicle, and the lessons learnt and technology tested found their way into more mainstream products like the Toyota Land Cruiser.
