This legendary SUV is present for almost five decades. Nowadays it is considered as one of the most popular and best-known vehicle of this type. You can see this SUV on almost every road in the world. Although this name appeared in 1951, that model was completely off-road-oriented. In 1967, company for the first time released comfort-oriented model. If we count only this type of Land Cruisers, there are five generations of it. Current model was launched in 2007, and so far, we have seen two modifications – in 2009 and 2013. For the 2016 Land Cruiser company also prepares some modifications. We will see both visual and mechanical changes on new model.

This SUV is designed for any kind of a road and every weather conditions. Because of that, it features classic SUV design. Beside robust and square look, it always featured plenty of details, which made this model also a good-looking one. Same thing is expected with 2016 Land Cruiser. It will come with several modifications, when it is about exterior look. The most notable changes will be made at the front end. New model will come with new bumper, modified grille, redesigned headlights and fog lights. Rear bumper will also come redesigned. The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will also come with new wheel-design and new door locks. When it is about interior, bigger changes aren’t expected. The cabin will feature the same styling, same level of comfort, space for the passengers etc. The only changes that you should expect are those about hi-tech systems and standard features. We expect to see updated infotainment system, for example, and something new on the list of standard features.
