First of all, a HUGE thank you to Toyota of Long Beach20 minutes ago
1951 – The Toyota "Jeep" BJ prototype was developed in January 1951. This came from the demand for military-type utility vehicles, much like the British Land Rover Series 1 that was developed in 1948. The Jeep BJ was larger than the original U.S. Jeep and more powerful courtesy of its Type B 3.4-litre six-cylinder OHV Four-stroke petrol engine which generated a power output of 63 kW (86 PS; 84 hp) at 3,600 rpm and 215 N⋅m (159 lb⋅ft) torque at 1,600 rpm. It had a part-time four-wheel drive system like the Jeep. However unlike the Jeep, the Jeep BJ had no low-range transfer case.
The 200 Series Land Cruiser was first introduced globally in 2002. Over six decades of know-how went into the engineering of this SUV, fusing new, modern luxuries with legendary capability. In 2013, this icon was transformed into the off-road flagship it is today. Every Land Cruiser is loaded with refined creature comforts like heated and ventilated front seats, leather-wrapped surfaces and four-zone automatic climate control. Terrain-conquering prowess is enhanced with standard technologies like an advanced 5.7-liter V8, standard Crawl Control (CRAWL) and a Multi-terrain Monitor. This is how we take adventuring to the next level. Here's to another 60 years of exploring.
In 2002, a 5-year development plan on a successor to the 100-series platform commenced under Sadayoshi Koyari and Tetsuya Tada. By 2004, 10 years after the design selection of its predecessor in 1994, a final production design was settled on for the 2008 J200. Prototype related tests were conducted for over 2 years between 2004 and early 2007. The redesigned Toyota Land Cruiser was introduced in late 2007. Known as the 200 Series, it shares the Lexus LX 570's platform and overall design. The frame was new, derived from the second-generation Tundra but shortened and strengthened by 20 percent. Bigger brake rotors and calipers were added and the front suspension was made strengthened than its predecessor. The underbelly is also protected by skid plates. The roof pillars were redesigned to better protect occupants in a rollover.

There’s plenty of torque to go around, as the Land Cruiser’s 381-hp 5.7-liter V-8 produces 361 lb-ft of the stuff at 2200 rpm; goose the engine to 3600 rpm and it delivers 401 lb-ft. All that grunt benefits the Land Cruiser on-road as much as it does off-road. In our testing, the 5934-pound SUV made its way to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds and completed the quarter-mile after 15.1 seconds at 93 mph. Both times were identical to those of a Land Cruiser we tested nearly two years ago. Toyota’s flagship SUV is nothing if not consistent. (A restored and modernized 1981 FJ43 Land Cruiser that we tested in recent months was slower than that but not nearly as slothlike as it would’ve been with its original powertrain.)
1997 – A total of 4,744 FZJ80 Land Cruisers were sold in the United States as "40th Anniversary Limited Edition" models. They were available in 2 colours; Antique Sage Pearl (often referred to as Riverrock, Pewter, or Grey) and Emerald Green. The 40th Anniversary models included apron badges, a serial number badge on the centre console, black pearl exterior badges, "40th Anniversary Limited Edition" embroidered floor mats, automatic climate control, two-tone tan and brown leather interiors, and wheels with the "D" windows painted dark gray. Many were manufactured with the optional electric front and rear locking differentials, keyless entry, port-installed roof racks and running boards. There are some examples that did not have many of these optional extras. This was the last year for the electric locking front differentials.
As of 2018, the Land Cruiser (J200) is available in most markets. Exceptions include Canada, Malaysia (which have the Lexus LX available), Hong Kong, Macau, North Korea, Singapore, South Korea, Brazil, Syria, Thailand and large parts of Europe. In Europe, the only countries that officially sell the Land Cruiser are: Gibraltar, Iceland, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.

Land Cruisers we’ve driven have felt rock solid, but interior materials don’t impress. Soft-touch trim on their dashboards and upper door panels contrasts with UN-grade hard plastics on the center console. For $86,000, the Land Cruiser should be dressier inside—especially since the five-seat LX 570 has real wood trim and few non-padded surfaces for about the same cost.
All Land Cruiser models come standard with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). Using millimeter-wave radar and a monocular camera sensor to detect a preceding pedestrian or a preceding vehicle, TSS-P Pre-Collision System is designed to automatically apply braking if necessary to help mitigate or avoid collisions in certain conditions. The system includes Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams.
