- Toyota announced the next-generation Land Cruiser will officially make its debut on August 1 at 9:20 p.m. ET.
- The announcement comes hand in hand with this new teaser image showcasing the boxy and vertical front end of the redesigned SUV.
- We can see the inspiration drawn from other recently redone Toyota models including the Tundra, Tacoma, and Sequoia.
UPDATE 7/28/23: Toyota has posted a YouTube link for the 2024 Land Cruiser’s live-streaming debut. The stream will start Tuesday, August 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET and the car will be fully revealed at 9:20 p.m. There’s also an additional teaser image that we’ve added to this story.

And just like that, we’re under a week out from seeing the full design of the returning Toyota Land Cruiser. The company announced with an Instagram post this morning that the next-generation Land Cruiser will officially debut on August 1 at 9:20 p.m. ET.
Toyota was also kind enough to satiate at least some of our desire to see the new 4×4 in full, with the addition of a new teaser image showing a hulking front end. The vertical bumper shown in the new image further strengthens our conviction that the Toyota will be a very close sibling to the recently revealed 2024 Lexus GX.
The teaser image shown earlier in the month (see above) shows that the two models have nearly identical profiles, with vertical bumpers and windshields, body lines that jump up at the rear window, and a squared-off rear windshield tilting slightly towards the front of the car.
Hybrid V-6 Power?
With all the visual similarities, it also stands to reason that the Land Cruiser will share the GX’s twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V-6 engine when it launches and an unspecified hybrid engine sometime down the line. We think the most likely hybrid setup is the 437-hp V-6 iForce MAX from the Tundra, but the smaller 2.4-liter four-cylinder hybrid available in the Tacoma could also make sense.
As far as trim levels are concerned, we think the Land Cruiser could arrive with a bevy of options including off-road-inspired TRD and Trailhunter models. Toyota is sure to add more mainstream options like an SR5, Limited, or Platinum for shoppers less interested in a rugged 4×4.
