Sourced from a Japanese brochure and first posted by the Prado-Club website, the images claim to reveal the first styling revisions to the full-size SUV since production started in September 2007.
A Toyota Australia spokesperson could not confirm if the images were official from Toyota, and said at this stage Toyota Australia has not confirmed if or when our market will get a facelifted version of the LandCruiser 200 Series.
The images reveal a more prominent front grille and bumper, new LED daytime running lights embedded in the headlight assembly and redesigned side mirrors. The side steps and remodelled rear bumper reportedly complete an optional body kit package for the Japanese market.
The interior changes are equally subtle, with a revised instrument cluster and metallic and wood-grain trim inserts among the more obvious revisions.
The Toyota LandCruiser range was most recently updated in Australia with the addition of the GX base model last month.
The LandCruiser 200 Series wagon remains one of the most popular 4x4s in Australia. Through the first 10 months of this year, 7441 LandCruisers were delivered across the country, 32 more than over the same period in 2010. The LandCruiser outsells its only direct competitor (according to VFACTS) – the Nissan Patrol – at a rate of about three-to-one.
