Toyota released the new facelifted version of the Land Cruiser in the Japanese Domestic Market with a few visual changes.
This iconic off-roader will also reach UK and US markets. In America it will be rebadged as the Lexus LX570.
The new styling details include a revised front fascia and headlights, a bolder grille, new LED lights, new design side steps, and new design for taillights. The car also gets new wheels available from 18 to 20-inch wheels and bigger side mirrors with LED indicators.
The interior and the 320-hp V8 engine remain the same. They are pretty good at what they do, so why change them. In Japan the car will be available in three GX, ZX and AX trim levels.
That’s about it for the 2012 Land Cruiser! It is still a serious SUV though, rugged, powerful and full of character. This car also has a smaller brother, the Prado. That is a fine choice if you can’t live the sheer size of the LC.
