This legendary full-size SUV is considered as one of the very few best models on the market. It was launched in 1967 and during these, almost 50 years, we saw five generations of it. Current model is present for about eight years and it looks like we won’t see a next generation of it for some more time. According to the latest reports, company plans one more big update for this model. Although it is expected to come already early next year on some markets, U.S. model will come during next year, as 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser.
