With news that Lexus will be debuting its new LX 570 at the New York Auto Show, we know a redesign for the venerable Land Cruiser from Toyota can't be far behind. Motor Authority expects the new Cruiser to officially surface at the Tokyo Motor Show later in the year, but offers these renderings of what we should expect in the meantime.
The Land Cruiser is an old stalwart of the SUV segment, having been around forever and more than proven its mettle. Expect the next version to continue the Land Cruiser's lay-low image with a mild evolution of the current model's styling, though new hardware can be found beneath the familiar skin. Supposedly Toyota is working on a new air suspension that can lower and raise the Land Cruiser at will, and power will most definitely not be a problem for the new 5.7L V8 sourced from the Toyota Tundra. Since the Lexus LX series and the Land Cruiser share the same platform and general proportions, we'll be able to better tell if these renderings are accurate after we arrive in the Big Apple for the New York Auto Show in a couple of weeks.

      Oh silly Owen and Gerry, still in dreamland and getting paid by Toyota to try to sell their lackluster trucks and SUV's. Because we all know Toyota is perfect, I mean, they didnt have sludge issues, and blame it on their customers, and the Prius has had no recalls, no way, no stalling or possible fires! Oh and then there is the stellar Avalon who has had so many problems in its current form..Oh wait I am sorry thats wrong Toyota is perfect. Hey Owen and Gerry, check this out about your fabulous Toyota!

      Boring Toyota as usual. That front end is hideous. It already looks outdated! Why they even sell it in the US is beyond me..people who want this type of vehicle from Toyota buy the Sequoia, and thats not many each year to begin with. Fix your cars Toyota, leave the trucks and SUV's to the ones who really know what people want.

      whatever the final product looks like it is going to be ugly if they keep the same shape, because the current one has had as many lifts as Dolly Pardon and it is still ugly as sin.

      wouldnt this be a beauty if only it was more fuel efficient. but i think there are some toyota land cruiser parts to use to increase fuel efficiency, haha. anyway, a fine car like this definitely deserves more than what it seems to have.

      The one talked about here is the Landcruiser 100.

      I have to disagree that the Landcruiser is not off-road worthy, it is. If you wanted bare bones pure industrial off-road duty, you can always go for the Landcruiser 78 or LC 79. There's an even more "urbanite" Landcruiser than the LC 100, the LC Prado (aka LC 90). The LC 90 is still a capable off-road vehicle, but it's more comfort oriented than previous LCs were.

      But in the United States, you only see the LC 100, and the closest thing to the LC 90 in the US I think is the Lexus incarnation of the GX470. I have heard of the LC 79s being used in mines up in the Arctic in Canadian mines. But they are not available for sale to the general public.

      This is so close to the Sequioa, just as the V6 RAV4 is redundant with the Highlander. How many SUVs does Toyota need to market at the same time?

      Don't you just love all these new green, fuel efficient cars that get great milage and do their part to deliver us from the horrible thing known as global warming. Ok, now that I am done with the sarcasm, this vehicle is ugly and adding a bigger engine at a time when gas prices are so high was a dumb move, the money would have been better spent making a diesel for the North American market and a small, off road style Lexus suv.

      I like the front light, it is much better then the usual lights they have been using traditionally.

      I do agree with you NoNameDenton, specifically on #23. As a big fan of Ford trucks, believe me, I would love it if Ford and GM came back to hand Toyota a big defeat in terms of sales statistics. And I'm more than annoyed that Toyota had the audacity to barge into NASCAR with what appears to be a big, and transparent, PR move by the company in addition to building the new Tundra in Texas.

      Nonetheless, in terms of the actual car, the Land Cruiser is probably one of the most dependable SUV's available today. And I did notice that Toyota has been having recalls on some of their products but as of yet, those recalls are not going to harm the company one bit in the near future. If nothing else, Toyota's success is a wakeup call to domestic car manufacturers. Because in the free-market country in which we live in, consumers will rightfully choose what gives them the better deal. At least currently, Toyota has done a great job of marketing itself as the company that provides forth that "better deal."
