After nothing less than 14 years of service and a fairly high number of modifications, restylings and updates, the Toyota Land Cruiser of the current generation -200 series- will stop assembling in the coming weeks.
While waiting for the generational change to be presented or Toyota to inform us about whether it will continue to manufacture a model under the name Land Cruiser, rumors and speculations that revolve around the model have begun.
According CarAdvice, there is a possibility that the next generation of the already iconic off-road vehicle will be presented on August 1, a date that coincides with the 70th anniversary of the model.
According Car Advice, these rumors are supported by the activity that the former Land Cruiser chief engineer has on social networks. Apparently, this figure has published a series of posts in which show a countdown to the anniversaryAlthough this is something that is not entirely clear to us, because we do not know if it has to do with the new generation or simply with a great celebration.
After the closure of the factory that is responsible for producing the Land Cruiser, the brand commented that it would carry out some changes before the new model appeared.
Although dealerships and Toyota would have accumulated enough units to continue sales until the next generation arrives, it appears that strong demand for the model has disrupted plans and eThe “stock” could be finished in April.
We understand that the next generation of the model could be sold with a 3.5-liter biturbo hybrid V6 engine and a 3.3-liter turbodiesel, among other possible options. The new model is also supposed will improve the off-road capability of the current, despite the fact that it will supposedly use a modified version of the same platform.
