The 60-year special edition of Toyota Land Cruiser dedicated only to the US market

The special version Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition 2020 has just officially launched and will be limited to 1,200 units.


Toyota has just announced a special version of the Land Cruiser 2020 SUV called Heritage Edition. This variant was born to commemorate the 60-year journey since the Japanese carmaker set foot in the US with the export of the first generation Land Cruiser to this market.
Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC with 577-hp needs 3.8 seconds in order to reach 60 mph, the BMW M5 with 560-hp needs 3.7 seconds, the Cadillac CTS-V of 640-hp needs 3.6 seconds, the BMW M6 Gran Coupe with 552-hp and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S with 570-hp both need 3.5 seconds and the Dodge Charger Hellcat with 707-hp needs only 3.4 seconds.


Land Cruiser Heritage Edition 2020 will be officially released to the public at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show Exhibition opening early next month, before being available at dealers this summer. Notably, this version was only produced with a limited number of 1,200 units exclusively for the US market.

One especially solid model, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 S required 3.2 seconds and Audi's provocative RS7 needed 3.4 seconds time in a correlation test in 2018. The users would be delinquent for the Tesla Model S P90D, a major hatchback which trounces all of them with its unfathomable time of 2.8 seconds—the length of its battery charge is at least 95 percent. Indeed, even thus, the raised position of the Toyota Land Cruiser 2010 is proven in the ultra-superior extravagance range of sedans.


This unique Land Cruiser is distributed with two new exterior paint colors (Black Midnight Black Metallic) and Pearl White (Blizzard Pearl). In terms of appearance, Land Cruiser Heritage Edition is not much different from the standard version. The highlight on the outside is the exclusive 18-inch color alloy wheels BBS.

As fast as the Toyota Land Cruiser increases speed, so also would it be able to quit, ending from 70 mph in a short 156 feet. All things considered, it did not enhance the past braking execution in spite of being fitted with carbon-fired brake rotors. Is it an excessive amount to expect in any event marginally shorter stops when spending a lot of money for the previously stated Dynamic bundle?


The name "Heritage" says it all. Therefore, the words "Toyota Land Cruiser" on the body are also shaped in a classic style to remind the history of this iconic SUV.

Furthermore, we'd value the brakes being somewhat less grabby around town, as well. We additionally were disappointed with the skid pad execution of Toyota Land Cruiser. Also, the 0.89g of sidelong hold is practically indistinct from the active auto's 0.90 g.

What that figure does not completely pass on, in any case, is the exactness with which the huge car cut a line over the twisty mountain streets of Southern California's Angeles National Forest.


Inside, the interior colors are also mated with the theme outside. For example, in the black paint, the car's cabin will be covered with black leather combined with copper colored lines. Also, the vehicle is also equipped with the floor mats and the great WeatherTech brand trunk mats.


The interior of the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition is also fully equipped with available equipment such as an independent 4-zone air-conditioning system, keyless entry smart key and 9-inch touch screen with voice recognition and staging technology, premium JBL audio and wireless phone charging dock.


Toyota Safety Sense P safety package is equipped on the vehicle including emergency automatic braking system, lane departure warning, anti-tilt warning, adaptive cruise control using sensor radar, blind spot warning, automatic reversing vehicle warning, and auto headlights.


Unfortunately, Land Cruiser Heritage Edition does not receive an upgrade under the bonnet. The car still uses a naturally aspirated 5.7L V8 engine, producing 381 hp and 545 Nm of torque, comes with 4-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission.
