  • This SUV was first introduced in Japan in 1951 as the Toyota BJ. This new Toyota was used purely as a Japanese military vehicle because of its ability to take on any terrain. Once they started to realize just what it could do, it was added to the police fleet and in 1954 and renamed the Toyota Land Cruiser.
  • By 1958, this new Toyota was selling world-wide and made its way to America. However, it took some time for it to gain momentum in the states. It was restyled and re-engineered in the 1960s, which made it the best-selling vehicle in the Toyota lineup from 1961-1965!
  • The N Charlotte Toyota Land Cruiser became an icon with the FJ40, which was released in 1970. This new Toyota boasted a design much like the current Toyota FJ Cruiser in N Charlotte, which set a standard for the durability of SUVs to this day!

In the 1990s, the Toyota Land Cruiser was truly a world-class SUV with features like a moonroof, leather seats and a refrigerator. It also held on to performance features like four-wheel drive and fine-tuned suspension to make it worthy of off-roading!
  • In the 2000s, this new Toyota had already built a name for itself and continued to raise the bar for luxurious SUVs.
