The Toyota Land Cruiser returns to dealers in the United States this spring after a three-year hiatus. However, the new model is much different, a smaller return to its roots and not a large V8 luxury off-roader. If you'd prefer to have the previous generation, we have good news: There are exactly two new examples left at dealers in the United States, a Toyota spokesperson confirmed to Motor1.

When asked which dealers were holding on to the treasured Cruisers, a Toyota spokesperson told Motor1 the company didn't have insight to their whereabouts. They could be anywhere. Searches on major car-selling websites didn't yield any results, suggesting they might be stored in a showroom's inventory but not listed for sale.

As much as we'd like to call every Toyota dealer across the nation to ask if they have new Land Cruisers for sale, we have a lot to do and there are hundreds of dealers. So we're turning to you for help. If you know of one holding a new Land Cruiser, or if you are that dealer, please comment on this post or email us at tips@motor1.com. Maybe we can help you find a buyer.

Toyota discontinued the Land Cruiser in the US for the 2021 model year, but a handful of them have remained at dealers since then. The company moved 3,711 examples the last year they were available. The figure fell to 48 examples in 2022.

Toyota sold seven new examples of the old Land Cruiser in the US in 2023 through old stock languishing on dealer lots. Clearly, there are a small handful of people out there who would prefer to have the old V8-powered model over the upcoming new SUV's turbocharged four-cylinder power plant, even if it means paying more money.

Complete pricing for the 2024 Land Cruiser is not yet available. Toyota says the truck will start in the mid-$50,000 range, substantially less than the $82,010 MSRP for the SUV in 2021. The new one should live up to the model's rugged legacy by coming standard with off-roading tech like full-time four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer case, and low-speed crawl control. But if you prefer the full-sizer with a V8, you'll have to find one of the remaining two Land Cruisers currently in hiding, as the new big-boy 300-Series Land Cruiser is only sold overseas.

Like the Lexus LFA, this is one Toyota product that dealer owners might be holding for their own personal collections. Can't blame them, the final V8 LC for the US will surely be a collector item in the future. When one with 20-miles on the clock sells for $350,000 on Bring a Trailer in 15 years, it'll probably be one of these final two.
