By most metrics, the 200-series is a dud. Sales are shit, cost is extremely high, and there is an unbelievable amount of competition ranging from the Armada to the Navigator/Expedition to the Denali/Escalade to a whole new fleet of Land Rovers and many, many more. The interior is atrocious. The electronic 4x4 tech is available in everything from a $15,000 Jeep Renegade on up the chain. By and large, the 200 series was a letdown from the 100 series which many argue that aside from the V8 was a letdown from the 80 which is the high water mark of land cruisers.

What does Toyota need to do in order

restore any form of relevance to the Land Cruiser?
