Toyota Motor Corporation, a Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, is the mastermind behind the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser. Founded in Toyota City, Aichi, Japan, Toyota is one of the largest car manufacturers in the world. The Land Cruiser has been Toyota's longest production model, since the Korean War in 1950. It is renowned for its simple engineering and high-quality parts, making it one of the most reliable cars on the market.
The Land Cruiser has been a favorite among business owners and CEOs of construction companies due to its simplicity, reliability and comfort. It has also been a popular choice for those looking to embark on new journeys, as it carries the legendary Land Cruiser heritage. However, due to changes in features and driving tests carried out by members of the evaluation team, Toyota has made some modifications to the Land Cruiser to make it easier to drive and less tiring for drivers both on and off the road. In terms of environmental performance, Toyota aims to reduce global CO2 emissions by approximately 10% * per year compared to the previous model.
This is achieved through the newly developed Direct Shift-10AT (10-speed automatic transmission) and a lighter body weight. Additionally, Toyota has redesigned the character of the Land Cruiser by merging technologies accumulated over many years with the most recent ones. This includes reducing vehicle weight, reducing the center of gravity, adopting a new powertrain and new interior and exterior designs. For current owners of Land Cruiser vehicles, they can rest assured that they will continue to receive high-quality service at their local Toyota service center.
As for those looking to purchase a new Land Cruiser, they will have to wait for Lexus to bring this new SUV to experience the harshness of the Land Cruiser. Soon we'll have more information about Toyota's future plans for the Land Cruiser.
