Now that Lexus revealed the new LX 570 at Pebble Beach, across the Pacific, Toyota has taken the wraps off the new Land Cruiser. This makes sense, as the two vehicles are very closely linked. The less glitzy version of the flagship Lexus sport-ute, Toyota's refreshed off-roader is known domestically and in this body-stye as the Land Cruiser 200.
This latest iteration benefits from a series of updates – some of which you can see from looking at it, and some of which you can't. There's a new three-bar grille, to start with, along with a reshaped hood, LED headlights, and a restyled tailgate as well. The interior has also been refreshed with new switchgear, instruments, and 4.2-inch color TFT LCD screen.
Toyota has also outfitted the new Land Cruiser with its latest Safety Sense P suite. The new technologies includes pre-collision, pedestrian detection, radar-enabled cruise control, lane departure, and automatic high-beam systems. You're looking at the Japanese version, and individual equipment levels vary from one market to another. Domestically, it's being offered in four trim levels with either five seats across two rows or eight seats on three. Either way, the Land Cruiser comes with a 4.6-liter V8 engine driving all four wheels.
