The Japanese automaker has catered to the American market intensely over the past few months – they introduced at nationwide dealerships the 2024 GR86 affordable sports car, the N400 Tacoma mid-size pickup truck, as well as the returning 2024 Land Cruiser (Prado or 250 in other regions).
The upcoming launches are not too shabby, either, and include the already-announced 2025 Camry mid-size sedan and Crown Signia crossover SUV, plus the 2025 Toyota 4Runner seven-seat off-road all-rounder SUV. As you can see, there's a pattern of love for the mid-size sector, right?

Well, that's quite enticing for everyone, including the rumor mill's imaginative realm of digital car content creators. Some of them even feel compelled to fiddle with Toyota's great mid-size offerings on more than one occasion. For example, Nikita Chuicko, the virtual artist better known as kelsonik on social media, thinks now is the right CGI time to play with Toyota's Land Cruiser – again.

On this occasion, though, he's not just adding a set of larger, shiny new aftermarket wheels and calling it a good virtual day to go out to town. Instead, the pixel master has nabbed a $75k 2024 Land Cruiser First Edition in Black and cleared the exterior of any additional color on trim surfaces, added a larger set of concave Y-spoke aftermarket wheels also dressed in black, and also lowered the suspension setup to make it a potential 'murdered-out' mall crawler.

So, do you like the fashionable transformation or is your heart already running amock crying its outrage at the sight of a Toyota Land Cruiser that discards its tough off-roader heritage in favor of ritzy attire? Anyway, all transformations are possible when discussing the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser – especially if we are dealing with the parallel universes of vehicular CGI. More precisely, we have also seen ideas that would make the Land Cruiser a TRD Pro to cater to its most extreme adventurous side, while the same CGI experts also decided to morph the SUV into a sporty GR Land Cruiser option.

If you don't like that kind of treatment, know there are plenty of options in the real world. The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser kicks off at $55,950 with the base Land Cruiser 1958 trim that also has round LED headlights just like the $75k First Edition – only it can be dressed solely in white, black, and gray as opposed to dual tones like blue and gray or sand and gray. There's also the intermediate $62k Land Cruiser grade with rectangular headlights and the widest choice of colors – there are seven of them, including dual tones. So, which one are you going to choose from the lot?
