Unfortunately, Toyota has already removed the land cruiser from the line in the U.S. UU. After 60 years, Toyota said interest and sales were declining in the country. For current Land Cruiser owners, you can rest assured that they will continue to receive high-quality service at their local Toyota service center.
Perhaps these buyers wanted to get hold of a Land Cruiser with a V8 engine, a powertrain that would almost certainly be dropped if the Land Cruiser returned to the United States. Toyota is also trying, as far as possible, to have SUVs available to people who really want to buy them for themselves, limiting the number of units sold to a customer to one. In addition, the new Land Cruiser has adopted the new parking support brake, which helps prevent accidents by recognizing obstacles in the front and rear of the vehicle in a parking lot, when approaching vehicles when the vehicle is backing up and pedestrians. In terms of environmental performance, Toyota aims to reduce global CO2 emissions by approximately 10% * per year compared to the previous model, combining the newly developed Direct Shift-10AT (10-speed automatic transmission) with a lighter body weight.
As for those looking to embark on new journeys, there are still plenty of Toyota trucks to carry the legendary Land Cruiser heritage. In addition, Toyota redesigned the character of the Land Cruiser by merging technologies accumulated over many years with the most recent ones, to achieve improvements such as reducing vehicle weight, reducing the center of gravity, adopting a new powertrain and new interior and exterior designs. Toyota Motor Corporation works to develop and manufacture innovative, safe and high-quality products and services that create happiness by providing mobility for all. The essence that the Land Cruiser has been maintaining for the good of customers is reliability, durability and off-road performance.
Or it could be that the procrastinators, realizing it was now or never, finally decided that now was the time to buy a Land Cruiser. As the flagship model in the Land Cruiser series, it has led the way in the evolution of vehicles over all generations while incorporating the latest technologies. It is believed that customers are prohibited from doing so for 12 months after receiving delivery of the Land Cruiser and, if that happens, they will not be allowed to buy another Toyota. It's more than that, as Toyota fears that, without a signed commitment, some LC300s could end up in the wrong hands.
With these objectives in mind, Toyota adopted the new GA-F platform based on TNGA, while maintaining the chassis structure, which is the base that protects the essence of the Land Cruiser. Having achieved all these developments, Toyota plans to launch the new Land Cruiser worldwide starting this summer. Obviously, you want to avoid situations where original buyers change it for a profit, taking advantage of the Land Cruiser's popularity in certain regions.
