The Toyota Land Cruiser has been around longer than most of us have been alive. It first began life back in 1951 as Japan’s answer to the Willys Jeep, and since then, it’s achieved iconic status as both an off-roader and a comfortable luxury hauler. To celebrate the SUV’s rich history, Toyota has unveiled this limited Heritage Edition model.
It’s available in either Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl, and features a black-accented grille complemented by darkened headlight housings. The foglights and the side mirrors likewise feature dark chrome bits. Underneath, it gets bronze 18-inch BBS wheels.
Inside, it has black leather galore with bronze contrast stitching throughout the cabin. It also gets a nine-inch infotainment screen with a JBL audio system. Other features include downhill assist control, hill-start assist, off-road turn assist, and the Toyota Safety Connect suite of safety tech.
Propelling the Heritage Edition is a beefy 5.7-liter V8 with 381hp and 544Nm on tap, paired to an eight-speed automatic ’box. Only 1,200 units will be produced, with sales in the US projected for later this year. Check out the photos below for a closer look.
