The Toyota Land Cruiser has been the darling of off-roading enthusiasts around the world ever since it debuted as a military vehicle in the 1950s.
The current-generation of the Land Cruiser (J200) entered production in late 2007 and has been roaming the dunes and roads of the world for a decade now and is due for an update.
Toyota it would seem has been listening and has now confirmed that the next-generation of the Land Cruiser SUV will make its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show which begins in less than a fortnight in Germany.
The Japanese car manufacturer has not revealed any details about the new Land Cruiser except for a rather cryptic line — " The new Land Cruiser will take you wherever you want to go. And bring you back." However, expect the Land Cruiser to maintain its body-on-frame construction that helps differentiate it from the rest of the large 'SUVs' around.
Toyota has also confirmed that the Yaris GRMN hot hatch and the new Auris Touring Sport "Freestyle" will also be seen at Frankfurt. Also making its debut in Germany will be the C-HR Hy-Power concept, a design study developed by Toyota's European Design Centre. The C-HR Hy-Power concept hints at future expansion of Toyota's hybrid powertrain line up which could result in a faster C-HR.
The Toyota Land Cruiser is considered by many as one of the best off-roaders around thanks to its go-anywhere attitude and reliability. We don't expect Toyota to allow the Land Cruiser from its core values though it is expected to get a few styling tweaks to give it a slightly more modern look.
