The 2024 Land Cruiser: Which Trim Fits You?

The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser marks its return to the United States with three distinct trims: the base model 1958, a mid-tier Land Cruiser trim, and the top-of-the-line First Edition. Each model is uniquely styled and equipped, catering to various preferences and needs. Let’s dive into what sets each trim apart.

 

1958 Trim: The Base Model

The entry-level 1958 trim offers a rugged, no-frills approach:

  • Exterior Features: Round LED headlights, LED fog lamps, and 18-inch wheels with 245/70 all-season tires.
  • Interior Features: Manually adjustable heated cloth seats, heated steering wheel, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
  • Off-Road Capabilities: Rear locking differential, Toyota’s Crawl Control, and a 2400-watt AC inverter for powering accessories.

 

Mid-Tier Land Cruiser

The mid-tier Land Cruiser trim steps up with enhanced features and options:

  • Exterior Features: Rectangular LED headlights, Rigid LED fog lamps (switchable between white and amber), and options for 18-inch wheels with 265/70 tires or 20-inch wheels with 265/60 tires.
  • Interior Features: Heated, ventilated, and power-adjustable seats covered in Toyota’s faux leather, and a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
  • Optional Premium Package: Real leather seats, a 14-speaker JBL sound system, head-up display, digital rearview mirror, and sunroof.
  • Off-Road Capabilities: Multi-Terrain Select for various terrain-specific drive modes, electronic disconnecting front anti-roll bar, and Multi-Terrain Monitor for enhanced trail navigation.

 

First Edition: Top of the Line

The First Edition trim is the pinnacle of the 2024 Land Cruiser lineup, combining luxury and off-road prowess:

  • Exterior Features: Reverts to round headlights, adds a roof rack, rock rails, front skid plate, mud flaps, rear door guard, and tailgate light. Available in seven paint colors, including two-tone options like Trail Dust and Heritage Blue with Grayscape roof.
  • Interior Features: Includes features from the mid-tier’s Premium Package plus a unique stitched case for the key.
  • Off-Road Capabilities: Shares features with the mid-tier but offers additional robust hardware for more challenging terrains.

 

Future Prospects

Toyota's 2024 Land Cruiser offers a versatile lineup that caters to different budgets and preferences. With its competitive starting price in the mid-$50,000 range, it's positioned to attract a broader audience compared to its predecessor, which started at nearly $90,000. The inclusion of a potential TRD Pro model with even more off-road capabilities and blacked-out accents, or a Trailhunter version focused on overlanding, could further expand the Land Cruiser’s appeal.

The 2024 Land Cruiser is available now. Keep an eye out for updates on potential new models and features as Toyota continues to innovate in the SUV market.
