Toyota Australia are releasing a special-edition LC70 to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Landcruiser. It’ll have a coil rear end, the twin-turbo V8 from the outgoing LC200 with its 6-speed automatic, properly calibrated electronics and a real glovebox.
Only kidding! The basic mechanical package is the same as always, but there’s minor interior and cosmetic differences. These include:
- Leather seats
- Leather steering wheel and gear knob
- Two extra 2.1A USB ports
- Heritage emblems
- LED Daytime Running Lights
Note: picture in the title is a standard LC79, not the special edition. I don’t have press images of the Special other than those below.
There will be 600 vehicles in total, 200 single cabs, 320 dual cabs, and 80 wagons, on sale in September 2021.
So, who wants one?
Here’s some screen grabs from the presentation given by Toyota Australia as part of the 70th Anniversary livestream:
