Production of the Toyota Land Cruiser began in the nineteen-forties, a four-wheeled car that looked like a Jeep. The first generation of the cruise began in 19 thirty-one, but was not yet called the “Land Cruiser”. The Jeep BJ prototype was originally developed, a large military utility vehicle that was very powerful. In the summer of that year, the Jeep BJ showed an impressive feat driving up to the sixth stage of Mount Fuji, which impressed the National Police Bureau, which ordered nearly three hundred of the cars. In the nineteen seventies, the car was called the Land Cruiser, a name that had to be more commercial to compete with the Land Rover.
The second generation ran from ninety-five to nineteen sixty and focused much more on the civilian export market. The Jeep-like car became more comfortable to drive, and the body also became more elegant. The first cruises were also produced outside Japan in the late 1950s, and the FJ-25 was manufactured in Brazil. The car was also exported to work in mines, dam construction and other difficult terrain. The third generation began in the seventies, with the late sixties and early seventies being successful times for the car that accelerated worldwide sales.
The modern Land Cruiser is an SUV, popular in the United States of America. The 200 Series was a facelift of the car that shared the same platform as the Lexus SUV. The redesign of the car was well received by many who believe that cosmetic surgery dramatically modernizes the car. However, not everyone was happy with the many changes that used the same point to argue that the car lost its roots and over-modernized and lost its true identity.
