There’s a lot of buzz and love for the old school off-roaders these days. From the return of the Bronco and Defender to all the newbie SUVs showing up.
But for over 60-years, the Toyota Land Cruiser has been an iconic player trekking the globe, traversing mountains and seeking adventure.
Paying homage to the popular 4×4, Toyota unveils the 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition ahead of its Chicago Auto Show debut which official goes on sale late summer.
If a new Land Cruiser isn’t in the cards, you could consider a smaller version in RC form.
The limited edition model gets an exclusive exterior and interior look, special 18-inch BBS wheels in bronze, a 381-hp V8 mated to a 8-speed transmission, and some other added functions to separate it from the pack.
Available in either Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl, the premium-luxury hauler gets some nice little exterior touches including a black-accented grille and a vintage-style Land Cruiser badge.
Inside, expect black leather-trimmed upholstery with bronze stitching, unique all-weather floor mats and cargo liner, all the latest tech including a standard 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Along with the latest upscale features like ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping and memory, power moonroof, four-zone automatic climate control with 28 cabin air vents, and Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start.
In a sea of new SUVs and crossovers, the Land Cruiser is definitely making a statement with the Heritage Edition. And it’s a good one.
Only 1,200 units will be produced and go on sale late Summer 2019; and will only come in a two-row model to maximize cargo. Pricing isn’t released but hit up Toyota’s site here to keep updated.
