Revealed: 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser

The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser will be unveiled Wednesday Feb. 1st at the Chicago Auto Show.

For 2013, the Land Cruiser gets a refreshed exterior which includes an updated grille, headlamps with HID low-beams, LED daytime running lights, and chrome side molding.

Under the hood of the Land Cruiser will be a 5.7L V8 DOHC engine. This engine will produce 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque and uses 87 octane gasoline.

The major changes take place in the interior of this large SUV. Some new interior features include a multi-information display, heated steering wheel, dynamic radar cruise control, a multi-terrain monitor that has front, side, and rear views, and a rear cargo deck power outlet. The big news is that options such as a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather-trimmed steering wheel, Bluetooth hands free controls,Toyota's premium HDD Navigation with Entune multi-media system, and JBL audio are all standard.

Just like every Toyota vehicle I am not really feeling the Land Cruiser's design. I really like how big rear-wheel SUV's drive so I'm sure the Land Cruiser will drive well. I just hope down the line that Toyota does something interesting with their designs. I guess many of these people don't have design on the top of their list when they're shopping for a vehicle. But if it's not broken then don't fix it.

Check back for more details once the Land Cruiser is unveiled tomorrow!
