Toyota all have confirmed his legend Land Cruiser The off-roader is on its way back to North America.
A short clip posted to the brand’s social media channels with the caption “The legend returns” shows the revival of the LandCruiser, just two years after it was withdrawn from sale.
What the American version of the LandCruiser will look like is unclear.
It has been rumored that the next Prado, previewed by the Lexus GX revealed last week, will only be badged LandCruiser in North America instead of the full-size LandCruiser 300 offered in Australia.
We expect the next Prado to be much more mature than the current car.
The GX which traditionally shares its platform has the same wheelbase as the more expensive Lexus LX, and features power from a 3.4-litre turbocharged petrol V6 at launch – a hybrid will follow.
Currently, the Prado is powered by the same 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine used in the HiLux and Fortuner.
Slow sales of the LandCruiser 200 killed the car in the US after 60 years on sale. Car and Driver reports between 2011 and 2021 only 3000 were sold on average each year.
