Retro-Themed Land Cruiser Heritage Edition for UAE Market
The United Arab Emirates is full of Land Cruiser fans and customers, so it’s fitting that Toyota rewarded them with this: a unique, retro-themed “Heritage Edition” of the current Land Cruiser. Only 100 of these will be sold, with 20 4-litre V6, 6-speed manual models and 80 V8 Land Cruisers.
Not too much has been added or changed on this model. Here are the notable features:
- Retro-inspired, body-colour matched decals
- 17″ classic wheels
- Fabric seats embossed with “Heritage Edition” logo
- Orange Sequential turn signal indicators
- Classic Roof Rails
- Heritage Edition Badge
- 10″ Infotainment system with navigation
- Integrated Air Compressor
- Kinetic Dynamic Suspension (V8 model)
The current Land Cruiser is overdue a replacement model and this Heritage Model could be a signal that Toyota might be showing one soon.
Once upon a time, seeking knowledge and adventure of distant lands began not with an online search. It started with the roar of the original search engine. Introducing two retro-inspired Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Editions with V6 and V8 engines. They are a tribute to the nameplate that has sold over 10 million units. These models hark back to a time when passionate pioneers set out in search of adventure in the UAE.
These limited series models re-live the legacy of nearly seven decades of market domination and global adventures. Designed to evoke nostalgia in every one of us, depending on which model you choose, you will enjoy classic features such as, 17” classic wheels, fabric seats embossed with the heritage logo, orange sequential indicators, classic roof rails and retro-inspired decals that run across the sides.
Everything on the outside shouts old-school but the importance of modern technology inside the vehicle wasn’t lost. Depending on which model you choose, you will enjoy tech features such as Power Steering, Power Windows, crystal clear 10” Navigation System, Bluetooth®, Built-in Air Compressor and Crawl Control.
Whether on-road or off, both Heritage models are engineered to deliver a classic driving performance. The V6 engine has a 4.0L capacity with a six- speed manual transmission that puts control in the hands of the driver. The V8 variant is a 4.6L engine with automatic transmission with kinetic dynamic suspension system as standard. So, whichever one you choose you will enjoy a performance and on road comfort.
When it comes to safety, the Heritage Editions are like every other Land Cruiser – uncompromising. Safety features airbags, 3-point safety belts, ABS & Brake Assist, parking sensors, and front & back crumple zones that absorb energy in the event of a collision. The driver also enjoys a high riding stance that offers a commanding view of the road, which ensures better visibility while driving.
