How We'd Spec It: 2024 Toyota Land CruiserToyota

The new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser is almost here, and that means it's time for us to fiddle with the newly released online configurator tool. Pricing was just announced for the three-model lineup, and there are a fair amount of options and trims to choose from. The range starts with the 1958 base model and goes all the way up to the loaded Launch Edition. Our editors gravitated towards the lower-priced versions, embracing the new model's more accessible nature when compared with the $85,000-plus previous generation, which ended production after the 2021 model year.

Joe Lorio's $58,745 Land Cruiser 1958

I went with the base 1958 trim because I wanted the round headlights but didn't want to pay $75K for a First Edition model. I added a roof rack ($1400!), which is not shown on the configurator tool as of now. There are no real options on the 1958 version, just accessories. The color choices for this version are grim: white, black, and silver. So, not much choice there. The blue and gold hues—the only non-grayscale colors offered in the whole lineup, in fact—are reserved for the top two trims. That's a pretty miserly selection, Toyota. –Joe Lorio
