Toyota is cancelling Land Cruiser J200 (LC200)

Recommended Posts

Toyota has finally decided to stop production of it's flagship legend Land Cruiser J200 (LC200) by 2022. This shape rolled out in 2008, so after 16 years of service this shape has been schedule to retire. I personally think it was high time for Toyota to pull this trigger as most of the other car manufacturers are changing shapes every 8-10 years. Right @desertdude, as you were waiting.

I'm more excited now to see the market flooding with next LC design until Toyota official announcement.

I love seeing people creativity at wild for rendering defender, supra oops Z4, Jimny etc.

That some MoVlogs level click bait there Gaurav bhai 😂 I though Toyota were actually cancelling the LC. I think the LC will still be around long after we are all dead and gone.

With the advancements and changes in technology coming the next coming years, I wonder which car or model we should buy to keep as collectors item with price appreciation in mind ?

Landcruiser 78 or 100 ?

Defenders, Disco ?

FJ cruiser ?

other suggestions?

Keep one of everything but keep it in good condition. Look what happened to Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts. They were crap when they were new but a rusted out Mk1 Escort will cost you 10,000 euro now when you could have bought one for 500 in the 90s. Even the shittiest of shitty stuff like Morris Marinas are going up in value. I know a guy at home who paid £9,000 for a Mk3 Cavalier SRi a few weeks ago, wasn’t even a red top, it was the 8v. Last one I had I sold it for £300. It’s a numbers game. The cars start to die off and get scrapped, nobody cares so the numbers drop. Eventually people grow up and have some savings and want to recapture their childhood so they go looking for old cars. The old cars are all gone so survivors can command a higher price. Basic supply and demand. It’s a long game to play but you can become very rich if you’re willing to play it for a long time.

True, my father in law was always laughing with my 1960 VW bug that I was restoring. For him it was a piece of crap which they used to race to pieces on the farmlands and let die to rust. If only I kept it longer but time and space was a big issue for me then.

About time. They are already overdue by a year as each generation usually lasts 10 years or less.

but it's so popular in this region, like the Nissan Patrol, i hear it is only manufactured to cover the demand of this region, right? does the LC has the same popularity?

If you read that article full, you will understand that writer is "Proposing" not yet confirm to "END" "J200" shape of LC and Toyota is not actually killing or discontinuing the Land Cruiser as a whole. It's a flagship legend of Toyota. 

So even if writer is true, then after 2022 Toyota will launch J300 series Land Cruiser (I assume).
