The headlight housings and foglight surrounds have also undergone the dark chrome treatment. This Heritage Edition Land Cruiser gets bronze 18-inch forged BBS wheels with a "Toyota" center cap - also pretty cool. A vintage-style Land Cruiser exterior badge evokes the vehicle's long, accomplished history in an understated way. It lacks running boards and chrome-coated door moldings, the latter having become a bit of a fashion thing lately. Like all Land Cruisers, the special edition packs a 5.7-liter V-8 good for 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque.

Inside, the Heritage Edition gets black leather upholstery as standard with bronze stitching, which matches the shade of the wheels outside, as well as the highest-specification 9.0-inch infotainment system.

Toyota will offer its big bruiser in two special colors: Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl with plenty of black accents. While this model isn't celebrating a particular anniversary, the company does note that the Land Cruiser has been a part of its US lineup for more than six decades without interruption, first arriving on our shores in 1958. There's also a set of all-weather floor mats and a cargo liner thrown in for good measure.

Toyota plans to build 1,200 Land Cruiser Heritage Editions.

Roughing It in Luxury The 2020 Heritage Edition features Land Cruiser's full complement of amenities, including ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping and memory, power moonroof, four-zone automatic climate control with 28 cabin air vents, and Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start. Pricing will be announced closer to its on-sale date, but for context's sake, a 2019 Land Cruiser will set you back $84,765.

Land Cruiser Heritage The Land Cruiser traces its origins to the 1951 BJ, Toyota's bid to produce a small 4WD military vehicle.
