    It had affected all the car manufacturers and affected the production rate adversely.

  • High Demand

    Toyota has officially made a statement about the delay on their website:

    “Thank you very much for considering and ordering our vehicles. The Land Cruiser has been very well received in Japan and worldwide. We sincerely apologize that it will take a long time to deliver the Land Cruiser to you after you place an order. We sincerely apologize for this. If you place an order now, the delivery time may be up to 4 years. We will do our utmost to shorten the delivery time for our customers.”

    The primary demand for the Land Cruiser is from the middle east, where the previous generations have been dominating the sand dunes in the desert. This is the 6th generation of the SUV and about the same size as the previous generation.

    It is yet to be introduced in the American markets, which would drive up the demand even more. The interior of the Land Cruiser seems two generations ahead with tons of electronics suites & features to improve the user experience making it effortless to conquer any possible terrain.

    The new irresistible powertrains, along with the armed to the teeth tech and premium interior, make the Land Cruiser the ultimate SUV for any adventure. The reliability & ruggedness that comes along make it the ultimate SUV.
