Toyota Drops 220-MPH “Land Speed Cruiser” at SEMA 2016 - #TENSEMA16

Twin-Turbo, Customized SUV Departs from Land Cruiser Tradition

Nov 3, 2016
Toyota revealed its ridiculously powerful Land Speed Cruiser at the 2016 SEMA Show yesterday, showing a fullsize SUV that abandons the rugged, off-road heritage of other Land Cruisers in favor of high speed.

Featuring a Toyota 5.7L V-8 engine augmented by two massive turbochargers, the Land Speed Cruiser makes more than 2,000 hp, with a top speed of more than 220 mph. Enabling such antics is a heavily modified frame sitting under a surprisingly stock-looking body. The only exterior clues are the Land Speed Cruiser’s circular turbocharger inlets and its aggressive stance. Sitting low over its 20-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, the Land Speed Cruiser exudes tons of confidence, and the hunkered posture enhances the Land Cruiser’s refreshed styling very nicely.

Toyota’s SEMA display creatively places the first-ever Land Cruiser model, an FJ25, next to a current, showroom-stock Land Cruiser, bookended on the other side by the Land Speed Cruiser. It’s a fun way to tie the company’s history in with its current products.

Which Cruiser would you rather have? The twin-turbo, Lamborghini-slaying Land Speed Cruiser or the simple, elemental FJ25?
