For a country that
loves sport utility vehicles, the Toyota Land Cruiser has
certainly slipped to the back of our minds. It carries one of the most iconic
go-anywhere, do-anything nameplates in the industry, and yet in 2011, only 1,662
Land Cruisers were sold in the United States, making it one of the ten
worst-selling vehicles of the year which made Toyota car makers
involve new updates.
Slight visual tweaks to the exterior include the addition of LED running lamps, as well as HID low-beam headlamps and a refreshed grille. Aside from that, not much else has changed as far as design goes, and while the Land Cruiser does look a bit old, it's decidedly rugged and handsome.
The Land Cruiser's 5.7-liter V8 is carried over unchanged, still with 381 horsepower mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Inside, the Land Cruiser gets a brand new hard-drive-based navigation system complete with Toyota's new Entune infotainment system.
