It's a sad day for Toyota fans in the US, as the iconic Land Cruiser has been removed from the line. After 60 years of production, Toyota has decided to pause assembly of the SUV due to declining interest and sales. However, there is still hope for those looking for an adventure-ready vehicle, as the 4Runner and TRD Pro Series are still available. The 16-year-old FJ Cruiser is also still in production, and Toyota may have given us a hint of a spiritual successor with an electric powertrain.
If you're looking for a new Toyota Land Cruiser in the US, you may be out of luck.

It may not be the same as the classic Land Cruiser, but it's still an excellent option for those who want to explore off-road.
