Meet the all-new 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition

Why is it called the Heritage Edition, though? Toyota decided to take it all the way back to 1958 for their inspiration – that’s when the Toyota Land Cruiser officially joined the US lineup. This special edition model channels the versatility and off-road capabilities that the original 1950’s model is so renowned for; after all, it got its start as a 4WD military vehicle.

As mentioned, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will offer performance specs very similar to the original model. Here’s what we’ve gleaned so far:

  • It has a 5.7L DOHC V8 engine that produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft torque
  • You’ll also find an 8-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission at your fingertips as well
  • This SUV offers full-time 4WD with Torsen limited-slip locking center differential and optional low range driving
  • You’ll find comfort and handling are a priority thanks to a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System
  • Tech is integrated to help improve performance, including Multi-terrain select, CRAWL Control, Off-Road Turn Assist, and more

And this new Toyota can also tow up to 8,100 lbs, meaning adventure is within your reach.

What about style? That’s where you’ll find the biggest deviations from the original model, and we can’t wait to lay eyes on the Heritage Edition for that very reason. Here are some of the stylistic updates it will showcase:

  • Your choice of a Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl exterior with black -accented grille
  • Bronze-colored 18×8″ aluminum wheels with a Toyota centercap
  • Darker headlight housings,  fog light surrounds, and side mirrors as well as dark chrome exterior accents

And the running boards and lower side body moldings have been removed to make this model more overlanding-friendly. The interior has been revamped too, coming only with two rows of seats and details like:

  • A black leather upholstery with bronze-colored accent stitching throughout the cabin
  • All-weather floor mats and cargo mat to improve its versatility further

And you can expect the same superior level of entertainment, convenience, and safety technology as the original model.
