It’s still the same truck underneath.
This 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition celebrates the iconic model’s 60th anniversary. For just under $90,000, the truck offers a few cosmetic tweaks, but it’s still the same Land Cruiser we’ve come to know underneath. Thanks to a CarsDirect report, we now know this special edition starts at $89,040, including a $1,395 destination charge.
The Land Cruiser wasn’t exactly cheap from the start, but this tacks on another $2,330 to the base version’s price. So what do you get for your money? One of the most notable changes you’ll spot is the 18-inch BBS wheels that strictly come on the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition. Beyond that, there are some aesthetic tweaks around the front and the back, such as the grille and chrome trim around the headlights and fog lights. Toyota also put a badge on the rear three-quarter panel.
Unlike the normal model, you only get two exterior color options with the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition, instead of four. Here, there’s only Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl to choose from. Inside, the Heritage Edition Land Cruiser has black leather trim with bronze stitching. Most notably though is the removal of the third row seating, making this a strict five-passenger SUV.
Under the hood, there’s still the same 5.7-liter, 381 horsepower V8 that lives in the rest of the Land Cruiser lineup. The engine, shared with the Tundra and Sequoia, produces 401 lb-ft of torque. The Land Cruiser, however, comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive, and this Heritage Edition is no exception.
A lot of money for little in return?
Is the $89,040 price tag for this 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition worth it? It will depend on how you like the look for that $2,330 premium over the normal Land Cruiser. Toyota is limiting the production run to just 1,200 models, so this Heritage Edition will be a bit of an exclusive offering when it goes on sale this summer.
