2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series
Believe it or not, the iconic J70 Land Cruiser will continue with production in the future. Considering that we are talking about the vehicle that had original launch way back in 1984, we can say that this is one of the longest-living models in the automotive industry today. While the newest version is reserved for most markets in the world, the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series will continue to be offered in Africa.
Famous for its spectacular reliability, durability and off-road performances, we have no doubt it will find the way to many drivers in this continent.
- Unparalleled reliability and durability
- Excellent off-road capabilities
- Iconic nameplate
- Archaic design
- Other than Safari, not quite functional
- High price tag
For these 35 years of production, we have seen numerous updates of this SUV. However, the base design still relies on old and proven design solutions. Therefore, it would be very hard to find any other model in Toyota’s range that has much in common with it. It does have some similarities with the Land Cruiser Prado, but we are still talking about two completely different generations of vehicles.
The last time we saw an update of this model was four years ago. For that occasion, we saw changes at the front, so the new model now looks fresher. Still, the overall layout remained pretty much the same, so you can count on the famous boxy shape in the next year as well.
The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series will continue with various body styles and configurations in the offer, but all models will feature the same cabin design that definitely belongs to another era of the automotive industry. You won’t find too many conveniences and features inside the cabin, but no one expects that from this SUV after all. The cabin is sturdy and can last for ages, and that is the most important thing about the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series.
When it comes to the powertrain, we saw numerous updates for these 35 years of production. In the past several years, this SUV comes with a relatively modern engine, but which still doesn’t meet emission requirements in most parts of the world. It is a well-known 4.5-liter V8 turbodiesel engine, which delivers around 205 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. It comes paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series Release Date
