Toyota is adding two special edition models for the 2020 model year, the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition and 86 Hakone Edition. Both vehicles will feature special touches and they won’t come cheap, especially for the hulking Land Cruiser.
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will be the rarer of the two special edition models because production will have a limit. Additionally, the Heritage Edition will only come as a two-row model and in either Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl exterior colors. Pricing starts at $89,040, $2,330 more than a standard 2020 Land Cruiser. That gets you extras like bronze 18-inch BBS wheels, retro-styled Land Cruiser badges, dark headlight clusters and foglight surrounds, dark chrome side mirrors, bronze contrast stitching in the interior, and all-weather floor mats. Under the hood is the same 381-hp 5.7-liter V-8 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Toyota’s go-anywhere goods like the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system, CRAWL control, Multi-Terrain Select, and Off-Road Turn Assist all come standard on the 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition.
The 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition checks in at $30,825 with the six-speed manual or $31,545 with the six-speed automatic. This gets you bronze 17-inch alloy wheels, a two-tone tan and black interior, tan contrast stitching, a black rear spoiler, and a tan Toyota 86 logo embroidered into the passenger’s side of the dash. All 86 Hakone Edition owners also get a tan-colored key fob cover with the 86 logo in black. Based on the GT trim, the 86 Hakone Edition also comes standard with full LED headlights, chrome dual exhaust tips, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, LED fog lights, and an instrument cluster display. In terms of performance, there are no changes; the 2020 Toyota 86 Hakone Edition keeps the same 2.0-liter flat-four with 205 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque (200 hp and 151 lb-ft with the automatic).
First out of the gate will be the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition, hitting dealerships in late summer 2019. Consumers wanting a 2020 86 Hakone Edition will need to wait because it goes on sale in the fall.
