2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition Release Date – Toyota adds two Special Edition models for the 2020 model year, the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition and the 86 Hakone Edition. Both vehicles will feature special touches and they won’t come cheap, especially for the hulking Land Cruiser.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition Release Date
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will be the rarer of the two Special Edition models because production will have a limit. In addition, the Heritage Edition will only come as a two-row model and in either Midnight Black metallic or Blizzard Pearl exterior colors. Prices start at $ 89,040, $ 2,330 more than a standard 2020 Land Cruiser.
It gets you extra like bronze 18-inch BBS wheels, retro-style Land Cruiser badges, dark headlight clusters and foglight surrounds, dark chrome exterior mirrors, bronze contrast stitching in the interior, and all weather floor mats. The undercooler helmet is the same 381-HP 5.7-liter V-8 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Toyota’s Go-Anywhere items such as the kinetic dynamic suspension system, CRAWL control, multi-Terrain Select and off-road turn Assist are all standard on the 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition.
The 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition checks in at $ 30,825 with the six-speed manual or $ 31,545 with the six-speed automatic. This gets you bronze 17-inch alloy wheels, a two-tone tan and black interior, Tan contrast stitching, a black rear spoiler, and a Tan Toyota 86 logo embroidered into the passenger’s side of the dash. All 86 Hakone Edition owners also get a Tan-colored key fob cover with 86 logo in black. Based on the GT trim, the 86 Hakone Edition also comes standard with full LED headlights, chrome dual exhaust tips, dual-zone air conditioning, keyless entry and start, LED fog lights, and an instrument cluster display. In terms of performance, there are no changes; The 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition holds the same 2.0-liter Flat-four with 205 HP and 156 lb-ft of torque (200 HP and 151 lb-ft with the automatic).
First out of the gate will be the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition, which hits dealerships in late summer 2019. Consumers who want a 2020 86 Hakone edition will have to wait because it goes on sale this fall.
In the cabin, black leather upholstery with contrast bronze stitching coats seats and sections of dash. But unlike the traditional land cruiser, this one ditches the third row completely. The only option is a $ 2,220 rear seat entertainment system. However, mechanicals do not change. The same 5.7-liter V8 produces 381 horsepower (284 kilowatts) of transmission, as does the full-time four-wheel drive system and eight-speed automatic.
Compared to the base 2019 Land Cruiser ($ 85,165 before destination), the Heritage Edition adds $ 2,480 to the total asking price. That’s expensive, especially when considering the Lexus LX, as the Land Cruiser shares its base cost of just $ 86,230 relative to launch for the two-row model and $ 91,230 for the three-row option.
Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition goes on sale this summer. But better hurry if you want one, it’s limited to just 1,200 vehicles.
The starting price is $ 89,040 according to pricing documents found on the company’s website, initially viewed by CarsDirect. Congrats, that’s under the $ 90,000 Mark. Toyota offered just one option on the 2019 Land Cruiser, rear-seat entertainment for $ 2,200, and that comes for the ride here as well. A regular 2020 Land Cruiser is set to start at $ 86,710.
Why should you buy a legacy edition then? To start, you get the cute, scripted “Land Cruiser” and “Toyota” logos on the outside. Then add 18-inch bronze BBS wheels with Toyota Center caps. Toyota deletes the running boards and lower body side molding for better off-road clearances, as well. There is a bunch of blacked out trim on the outside and contrast bronze stitching on the interior. You also get all-weather floor mats and a cargo liner, so you need to be ready to get dirty.
Toyota previously said they will be hitting the dealerships in late summer, so check with your local Toyota dealer soon to see if they were lucky enough to take delivery of the Special-Edition car.
