Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series Anniversary edition revealed for Australia


A 70th birthday special.

That’s right! The J300 Land Cruiser might be the hot story these days but the 70 Series Land Cruiser is still on sale in certain parts of the world where people find ’em just as exciting to talk about and of course, to also drive. One such market is Australia, where the 70 Series is still on sale in both SUV and ute (pickup truck) bodystyles. As part of the Land Cruiser brand’s 70th birthday celebrations, Toyota is offering a special Anniversary edition of the 70 Series Land Cruiser in Australia, limited to 600 units.


The Anniversary edition will be based on the range-topping GXL grade. Of the 600 units, 320 will be double cabs, 200 single cabs and 80 will be wagons (SUV) — available in three colours, French Vanilla, Merlot Red and Sandy Taupe. Distinguishing factors on the exterior include a black heritage grille with ‘TOYOTA’ lettering, black front bumper and wheel arch flares, black headlight bezels, and darkened 16-inch alloy wheels. In addition, the front fog lights and daytime running lights have been upgraded to LED units. A 70th Anniversary badge on the front fender—just above the wheel arch—rounds off the special treatment.


Inside, the seats are clad in premium black upholstery, while the steering wheel and the shift levers are wrapped with black leather. Other enhancements include wood-like inlays on the dashboard, silver accents for the air vents, and a black applique around the switches on the doors. In addition, a new centre console has been fitted with two additional Type-A USB chargers and a pair of cupholders.

All versions of the 70 Series Land Cruiser will be powered by a 4.5-litre V8 turbocharged diesel engine that develops 151 kW (205 metric hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The Land Cruiser 70 Series Anniversary edition is expected to arrive at Australian dealerships in September 2021, with prices starting at $80,050 (single cab), $82,600 (double cab) and $78,500 (wagon).
