Toyota Announces Land Cruiser Heritage Edition
Toyota has announced the 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition. The Heritage Edition honors the evolution of the Land Cruiser. The original model started six decades ago in 1958 as a bare-bones vehicle. Today it is a luxurious 4x4 off-road–capable SUV in Toyota’s lineup.
The Heritage Edition will only have two rows to maximize the rear cargo space similar to the early versions. It will come in a color choice of Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl. The vehicle will have a black-accented grille and bronze 18-inch forged aluminum wheels. The Toyota logo will be prominently displayed in the center cap. To celebrate Toyota’s heritage, the vehicle will get a vintage-style Land Cruiser exterior badge.

It will come with darkened headlight housings and foglights along with dark chrome surrounds and darkened chrome details on the side mirrors. All of the normal off-road features found on the current model such as hill-descent control and crawl control will come with the Heritage Edition.
On the interior, the vehicle will be outfitted with black leather–trimmed upholstery. There will be bronze contrast in the stitching throughout the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition to match the theme of the wheels. It will also come with all-weather floor mats and cargo liner. Toyota is keeping standard technology features inside, such as the stereo system and touchscreen display.
The Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will debut at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. Only 1,200 will be made. They are expected to go on sale in the summer of 2019. Toyota has not confirmed pricing.
