You’ve probably heard that Toyota is rereleasing its iconic 70-Series Land Cruiser in Japan. Well, Motor Trend recently got its hands on one and published a “First Drive” article. Although they weren’t able to take it off-road, they do give readers a sense of what driving this reissued Landcruiser is like.
In case you’re fuzzy on the details, Toyota will be releasing the 70-Series as a pickup truck and an SUV—Toyota refers to the latter as a “van.” Power will come from a 4.0-liter V6. The sad news remains that this is a Japan-only release, and even that is said to be for one year only.
The price will be about $30,000. How I wish they would bring them to U.S. shores!
