Toyota Marks The LandCruiser’s 70th Anniversary With A Retro-Inspired GXL

Debuting in 1951, the LandCruiser was originally developed by Toyota for Japan’s National Police Reserve, though the four-wheel-drive SUV would eventually become one of the Japanese marque’s best-selling models, with over 10,000,000 units sold since its introduction. With 2021 marking the model’s 70th anniversary, Toyota has opted to celebrate the occasion via a limited edition run of retro-inspired LandCruisers.

Based on the flagship GXL-spec LandCruiser, this special edition model features boxy retro-style bodywork that pays homage to the original BJ and FJ Series, though underneath packs a thoroughly modern 3.4L V6, which can be upgraded to a 4.5L turbo-diesel V8. The exterior of the 70th Anniversary Edition sports a special “heritage grille” with retro-font “TOYOTA” badging, 16” alloy wheels, alloy headlight bezels, metal retro-style mirrors, LED fog-lamps and DRLs, and unique ‘70th Anniversary’ emblems. The SUV’s interior is equipped with several features that have never previously been offered in a LandCruiser such as premium black upholstery with a black leather-accented trim package complimented via (faux) woodgrain and silver accents. Offered in a 76 Series wagon version as well as 79 Series single and double cab chassis pick-up variants, the 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 70th Anniversary Edition will roll into dealerships in September of 2021 starting from $58,000. Limited to just 600 units, this release will be exclusive to the Australian market.

Purchase: $58,000+
