2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition Is Pretty Darn Cool

There’s something really cool about the Toyota Land Cruiser that Canadians just don’t get.

See, we don’t get the Land Cruiser in Canada which means we’re not getting the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition. Maybe it’s because we can’t get it, but we really want it.

Built to celebrate the full-size SUV’s 60th anniversary, the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will be unveiled at next month’s Chicago Auto Show. Only 1,200 units of the special edition full-size SUV will be built.

The coolest part of the Heritage version is the retro writing on the c-pillar, but that’s not the only thing that sets the unique trim apart from other Land Cruiser models. Special bronze BBS 18-inch wheels are exclusive to the Heritage model which is available in two exterior colors: Midnight Black or Blizzard Pearl.

The Land Cruiser Heritage is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque which is paired to a 8-speed automatic and can tow over 8,000 pounds.

Built for both comfort and off-roading, the body-on-frame full-size SUV gets full-time 4WD system, a TORSEN limited-slip locking center differential and a 2-speed transfer case with selectable low-range.

It also packs quite a bit of luxury with ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping and memory, power moonroof, four-zone automatic climate control with 28 cabin air vents, and Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start.

The closest thing we have to the Toyota Land Cruiser here is the Lexus LX while the Sequoia handles the load at the top of the Toyota SUV lineup.
