Toyota dropped another Land Cruiser teaser today, and while it shows us virtually nothing, we get a small tidbit of information from the 24-word press release accompanying the image: The official reveal for the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser is on on Aug. 1, 2023, at 9:20 p.m.
The teaser itself shows a squared-off nose reminiscent of the Toyota FJ Cruiser, rectangular headlights mimicking the rectangular casing of the classic Land Cruiser and a large black grille.
Since it will be built on the same body-on-frame GA-F platform as the GX, I think we’ll see some similarities in terms of the boxy shape and general size. And since the GX gets an off-road-focused Overtrail trim, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a Trailhunter version of the Land Cruiser – just like we see on the new Tacoma.
We’ll see some less luxury finishing touches, though it would be nice if the Land Cruiser had a cool box. It will have an “occasional” third row and probably a similar pop-out (not roll-down) rear window. And, no, it won’t have a V-8. Since Lexus likes to differentiate via powertrains, we might not see the same twin-turbo V-6 that the GX gets, but we’d definitely expect some kind of a turbo 4 – as well as one of the Toyota Hybrid Max powertrains.
Thus far we have three teaser images from the brand (two nearly identical ones were released on July 6), and together you get the general idea that this will be an upright, squared off, retro SUV.
We’ll be on hand for the reveal, so be here at 9:20 p.m. for photos and a walk around video of this returning legend.
While we don’t have any official information yet about the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser, we expect it to wow just like the Lexus GX did during the reveal. The good news: We have less than a week to wait.
