Toyota teased the primary foot or so of its upcoming 2024 Land Cruiser. A word despatched together with the photograph says we gained’t have to attend lengthy to see the remaining. The reborn off-roader “will make its world debut on August 1st,” Toyota says.
A nameplate steeped in historical past, the Land Cruiser left the American market after the 2021 model 12 months. Toyota introduced plans to deliver it again earlier this summer time.
The hints we’ve seen to date have leaned into the model’s nearly-70-year historical past. This newest teaser will get extra particular. It reveals a boxy nostril and rectangular headlights on the brand new model. However, maybe extra considerably, it’s silhouetted in opposition to the nostril of an older model – the fondly-remembered late Eighties FJ62.
The 2024 Land Cruiser might borrow the squared traces of that model. A serious design development this 12 months has seen producers make their SUVs boxier. Severely. It’s all over the place.
However the Land Cruiser has a historical past to name on that a lot of these fashions don’t. Toyota may theoretically tug in your heartstrings with a boxy design in a means few others can.
Beneath the boxy design, although, we seemingly know what to anticipate. The corporate’s Lexus luxurious division not too long ago unveiled a brand new 2024 GX off-road SUV that, many observers say, may present the underpinnings of the subsequent Land Cruiser.
We anticipate to know early subsequent week.
