The Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series, renowned for its rugged durability, has just received a serious upgrade in style and functionality. Thanks to a collaboration between Toyota's in-house tuner, Modellista, and JAOS (Japan Offroad Service), this off-roading legend is now equipped with accessories that are as practical as they are stylish.

Fresh off its update earlier this year, the Land Cruiser 70 now boasts a bolder look with a new front bumper and integrated daytime running lights.

For those misty morning drives, the SUV features optional yellow fog lights and a sturdy front skid plate, providing essential protection against rough terrain. Not to be outdone, the rear also gets a protective plate, along with a roof rack capable of holding up to 110 pounds – perfect for all your adventure gear.

For those who like to stand out, Modellista offers the X-Claw wheels in a striking matte bronze finish, wrapped in Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tires. These not only enhance the vehicle's visual appeal but also boost its off-road prowess.

Inside, the Land Cruiser 70's traditionally minimalist interior can be upgraded with several accessories. These include LED interior lighting, comfy seat cushions, and a practical resin luggage tray to keep the cargo area clean. And for a touch of luxury, there's optional faux wood trim and sleek piano black finishes.

While Modellista focused on style and utility rather than powertrain enhancements, the Land Cruiser 70 continues to impress with its engine options. It does keep the reliable 4.5-liter V8 turbodiesel, as it offers a good amount of 202 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. The lineup is completed by a new 2.8-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine, roaring 201 hp and 367 lb-ft of torque. The V8 works with a five-speed manual transmission, while the four-cylinder is matched with an automatic gearbox.

These upgrades open up possibilities for Land Cruiser enthusiasts to customize their vehicles, potentially even retrofitting older models for a unique blend of classic and contemporary.

Alas, for off-road aficionados in the United States, the Land Cruiser 70 remains elusive. But for those lucky enough to access this legendary vehicle, these new upgrades from Modellista are sure to make the Land Cruiser 70 an even more coveted machine for off-road adventures.
