Driving beyond all expectations, from desert heat to the South Pole, in the most severe off-road conditions,
Land Cruiser has earned its title as king of 4WDs, its performance and reliability legendary. It began in Japan in 1951 with
the tough Toyota BJ prototype. The name Land Cruiser was adopted in 1954 and the following year saw the 20 series,
whose ruggedness drove export sales. In the 1960s,
the 40 series models made Land Cruiser's reputation unassailable.
An F-type engine and other enhancements dramatically improved high speed and off road performance.
Land Cruiser became renowned for utility wherever it was driven and today's models are heirs to the legendary 40 series,
demonstrating the same strengths, durability, reliability and endurance, with added comfort and superior handling making it
the number one choice of utility vehicle.
