The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser - A Storied Heritage

With a storied heritage, the 2019 Land Cruiser continues its tradition of off-road capability and on-road cruise-ability.

The Land Cruiser first appeared in 1957 with the FJ25. Putting more of a focus on off-road capability, the first iteration of the Land Cruiser instilled essentials that are still visible in the 2019 Land Cruiser. Appearing next inf 1970 as the FJ40, this version of the Land Cruiser featured a two-box hardtop, dual swing-out doors, and imposing off-road ready styling. 1977 brought about the FJ45, which made majors changes to the pervious versions. The FJ45 turned the SUV-ish Land Cruiser into a pickup truck! The FJ45 featured distinct Land Cruiser styling but axed the second row of seats and replaced it with a truck bed.

1986 FJ60 - 2019

Looking strikingly similar to the 2019 version, the 1986 FJ60 was the first Land Cruiser to set in mold the future of Land Cruiser models. The 1986 version left out the truck bed and returned the second row along with a rear storage area. It's lengthy like the 2019 Land Cruiser but bears the unmistakable aesthetic preferences of the eighties. Looking exteriorly similar to the FJ60, the FJ62 added a 4.0-liter 6-cylinder engine to help boost off-road capability. Following the 1988 FJ62, the FZJ80 OZ appeared with a refined exterior design. The Land Cruiser disappeared for a while after the 1992 model, reappearing in 2007 with the VDJ79. Returning to a pickup configuration, the VDJ79 put the focus on work functionality. 2013 saw the return of an SUV format an since the 2013 iteration, the Land Cruiser has been quiet - until 2019.
