The Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will make its pubic debut at the upcoming 2019 Chicago Motor Show and will be limited to only 1,200 units. We'll complain about meaningless badging from time to time, but take a look at the vintage "Toyota Land Cruiser" badge behind the rear window. The running boards and chrome lower body side moldings have been removed. The bronze theme continues inside the cabin with contrast stitching on the steering wheel, door trim, center stack, console, and seats. Featuring bronze accents inside and out, as well as a few other aesthetic upgrades, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition goes on sale this summer. It will also be offered in two exterior colors only - Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl.

In honor of the 60th birthday of the model the Japanese automaker has presented the special version of the Toyota Land Cruiser 200, called the Heritage Edition.

V8, 4WD Powerhouse The Toyota Land Cruiser remains a benchmark for combining no-compromise capability with coddling luxury.

The Latin American nation could see crude production drop by one-third this year, analysts at Fitch Solutions said on Friday. Potential U.S. sanctions against Maduro's government or serious unrest in the country could cut the country's crude exports.

The third-row seating is also tossed, which at least increases cargo room while decreasing maximum occupancy from eight to five. The naturally aspirated V-8 produces 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. Pricing will be announced closer to on-sale date. Off-road prowess is supported by a plethora of advanced assist technologies, including Downhill Assist Control, Hill Start Assist, CRAWL Control, and Off-Road Turn Assist.

The interior of the limited series sports an original leather trim along with washable mats, ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control and a JBL audio system.

Like all 200s in the U.S., the Heritage model is powered exclusively by the 5.7-litre petrol V8 engine back by an eight-speed automatic transmission and dual-range, full-time 4x4, as found under the Lexus LX570 model here in Australia. Toyota is keeping standard technology features inside, such as the stereo system and touchscreen display.
