Toyota to abandon Land Cruiser 200 SUV after 2021October 9, 2020
It is possible that the iconic SUV Toyota Land Cruiser 200 entered the production conveyor for the last time.
According to unconfirmed information published by the foreign profile Motor Authority, citing a deleted post on IH8MUD.com, Toyota will discontinue the Land Cruiser after the 2021 model year, while the Lexus LX premium SUV will remain, but with a turbocharged V6 instead of the current 5. 7-liter V8.
In addition, another dealer source is said to have reported that “there is no illusion that it [the Toyota Land Cruiser] is returning and that he is completely dead at this point.” However, in 2021, the company is set to launch a third-row Heritage Edition that was unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show as a 2020 model for about $ 80,000.
It should be noted that the assumption that the Japanese SUV may end its existence has its own explanation, especially given the age of the Land Cruiser. The current generation of the J200 model has been around since 2007 and there is no specific announcement of a successor. The model received only numerous restyling to maintain the relevance of the style.
