Post New Land Cruiser spotted

One of Autoblog's reader's took these shots of what could be the upcoming new Land Cruiser. He took them in Oman, in the Middle East.

Looks a little small to be a Land Cruiser that would be sold in the states. I think it is the Land Cruiser/Prado.

I could be wrong though.

I saw a review on youtube, tremendous off road ability, but I don't have 67,000 gr.

Seems too expensive and too upscale for 4x4 use:

2008 Toyota Land Cruiser - Previews
Toyota's latest land basher is sophisticated on and off the trail.

By Barry Winfield

Do you remember how it felt the very first time you engaged cruise control? That momentary sense of no longer being in control, that the car had assumed command? That's how Toyota's new crawl mode in the 2008 Land Cruiser feels at first. You select the function, take your foot off the brake, and the car proceeds under its own management.

Of course, in crawl mode (which functions only in low range) the new Cruiser moves forward very slowly there are three speed choices on a rotary switch in the dash, and none of them is faster than a walking pace. The cool trick is that the vehicle will maintain that pace through thick and thin, adding power to get the truck over big moguls and using the traction control and downhill assist to negotiate holes and grades. All you need to do is steer.

See, there is still a job for the driver in this vehicle. The job is mainly to enjoy the huge ability this truck reveals in everything it does. The '08 Land Cruiser somehow manages to combine peerless refinement with effortless highway prowess and extraordinary off-road potential. To help deliver this amazing versatility, it boasts a new engine and transmission.

All U.S. Land Cruisers are powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 (known as the 3UR-FE, and also used in the Tundra full-sized pickup truck) that produces 381 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 401 pound-feet at 3600 rpm on regular gas. This big V-8 available in the U.S. market only pedals through a six-speed automatic that features a low, 3.33:1 first gear and overdriven fifth and sixth gears for optimal economy. (Toyota's preliminary fuel-consumption estimates are 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway.)

They are competing with the Range Rover, both are very expensive and upscale but both are very good off road. Stock truck to stock truck, the Land Cruiser would probably out perform the Tacoma and the FJ cruiser off road.

I saw this at Lighthouse Toyota today. It is very nice but if I'm going full size, I'm getting a Tahoe. I've had a 97 Tahoe and a 2002 Avalanche. I felt like the King of the road.

Hiss ! If you had the means I would at least drive one, maybe your thoughts would change. Certainly a Tahoe is cheaper, but maybe not better.

You go ahead and buy your Tahoe, causing sales of the land cruiser to decline by one making it possibly cheaper for me!.......Tahoe, what the hell are you thinking?

Damn, holy shit. Don't bite my head off!
I've always drove Chevys and I always thought I'd be a loyal Chevy owner. But when I saw the 2nd generation Tacoma that started changing my mind. The Tacoma is the best mid-sized truck on the market. It's much better than the Chevrolet Colorado. The Land Cruiser is very nice but I can't afford one. So with that being said, if I buying another full sized SUV I'd buy a Tahoe. It's just my opinion.

I wish they would give the Taco the same off road capabilities as the land cruiser while keeping the taco's basic ruggedness. It looks like a badass offroad vehicle but i would never pay that much for something then take it in the mud. plus its huge, and doesn't look like it has much ground clearance.

Yeah that "crawl mode" is something, I would love to try it. But I guess that what keeps the Taco reachable to the common man, although I have not driven one off road but the Taco with the Off Road pkg with the locking rear diff goes like a S.O.B ! I watched a few videos on youtube and it's pretty cool.

Too much auto-pilot for my preference..sure it probably works great, but to me and the moderate wheelin I`ve done in AZ..the fun and challenge is driving,learning how to make your truck go where you want...all the inputs required.

Yes I agree, nothing better than grabbing the bull by the horns yourself and getting it done.
