The car that symbolizes Toyota's history of delivering safety and security to people for over 70 years
Due in part to its performance record, it began to be adopted as a police patrol car all over Japan. Thus began the tradition of, "Striving to deliver safety and security to all customers as well as others involved with this vehicle." This tradition would continue for 70 years and can be considered the foundation of a mobility company.
Evolving as a car while incorporating the latest technologies as the flagship model of the Land Cruiser series
The redesigned new Land Cruiser (300 Series), the successor to the 200 Series that debuted in 2007, is a station wagon model. As the flagship model of the Land Cruiser series, it has in every generation led the way in vehicle evolution while incorporating the latest technologies.
Furthermore, Toyota redesigned the Land Cruiser's character by merging technologies accumulated over many years with the latest technologies, to achieve such improvements as vehicle weight reduction, lowering the center of gravity, the adoption of a new powertrain, and new interior and exterior designs.
