Toyota Land Cruiser an SUV, which has ruled the non-paved roads for over sixty-five years and has evolved from being an off-road oriented Jeep to emerge as a Range Rover competitor by becoming comfort oriented without compromising much on its off-roading capabilities. In addition to being NATO’s and UN’s top SUV priority, Land Cruiser has received a decent amount of success in Pakistan.
While this week, a majority of headlines have been made by Honda Atlas thanks to the launch of all-new Civic and the announcement spelling the death of CR-Z in Pakistan, now it looks like, Indus Motor Company (IMC) wants to steal the limelight from its arch-rival Honda Atlas. That’s right Toyota Indus have finally launched Land Cruiser’s face-lift in Pakistan.
The face-lift was revealed to the world last year and since then many face-lifted Land Cruisers including the ‘ZX’ trim have made it to Pakistan thanks to third-party importers, now though it’s available officially through Indus Motor Company. As of now in total, the following three models are being offered by Toyota Indus for these prices:
