Call it a comeback: Toyota Land Cruiser returning to USA


You can literally cruise the land in it!

Toyota has announced that the classic Land Cruiser name is returning to its U.S. lineup on an all-new model.

The automaker last offered a Land Cruiser in the U.S. in 2021.

The news comes in the form of a social media post with a video cycling through several of the Land Cruiser badges that have been used since the 1950s.

Positioned as a serious, but premium off-roader, the Land Cruiser is so popular that Toyota announced last year it was sold out into 2026.
