    This is my “new” JDM Toyota Land Cruiser

    |

    I needed a second car. I knew what I needed functionally but wasn’t sure what I wanted. Actually, I wanted my Bronco, but my wife wouldn’t relinquish it. So I started looking for something else. I looked at so many cars that I started to hate looking at cars. Ultimately, I bought something I didn’t […]

    The email read “Do you want to drive a turbodiesel swapped Land Cruiser and go camping for a few days?” It’s a simple ask but one I’m almost immediately inclined to say yes to. So I replied in the affirmative, booked the travel, and marked the day on my calendar. This is an Overland event […]

    It’s not the 300-Series Land Cruiser, but the 2022 Lexus LX 600 is pretty darn close. We no longer get the Cruiser here in North America as the LX 600 is now the defacto full-bore big off-roader from the Toyota family. And that’s actually not bad when you consider it has a powerful twin-turbocharged V6, […]

    The redesigned Toyota Land Cruiser will not come to the United States. This news is nearly as old as the outgoing model itself, and many enthusiasts lament the loss of the Japanese automaker’s flagship off-roader. The Land Cruiser nameplate will live on in the rest of the world. It’s not out just yet, but recent […]

    Look around, everyone these days wants a mighty 4×4 off-roader, even if they have no no-roads on to drive on. It’s a craze and it’s crazy. Wranglers and Gladiators, full loaded models too, are selling like fresh bagels. Ford took over 200,000 reservations for the Bronco within days of introduction. Toyota has sells more than […]

    2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition – The Love Letter

    |

    Toyota Land Cruiser needs no introduction.  Legendary longevity and reliability of the Land Cruiser are known worldwide.  While most of that is focused on the 60, 70, and 80’s series Land Cruisers, the latest 200 series is still held to that standard.  The 200 series may look and feel softer than its predecessors but a […]

    I was half-way into my week with the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition and my feelings toward it were very conflicted. Its go-anywhere, fear-nothing feel was charming me. Its dated elements were doing the opposite. How would I feel about the package as a whole? The week progressed and I continued to drive the […]

    Thunder cracked and the unmistakable sound of rain pounding on the windows stopped me in my tracks. Wind howled. Flashes of lightning cast shadows not regularly there. I looked outside and saw the white Land Cruiser parked steady, unmoving against the awful weather. Then I glanced back to my surroundings — my living room — […]

    A Series 70 Land Cruiser is a wonderful thing. We don’t get them though, which is sad. The 70 Series arrived in the mid 1980’s to replace the aging 40 Series trucks. Toyota wanted a version of its Land Cruiser to retain the tough, off-road capability of the versions that came before. Yes, the 60 […]
