Oh no, now their only offroad capable vehicles will be the nearly identical lexus, the tundra, the tacoma, and the 4 runner. How will toyota survive?

These things are already rare as hens teeth. The core market seems to be well-to-do African and Asian immigrant families who grew up seeing these as the ultimate elite symbol.

I will say this though - a coworker has an older Lexus version, early-mid aughts, 200,000k miles. Riding in it, you understand the appeal of well-built Toyota's. No rattles, no creaks, no groans, every surface still looks new.  I've been in 2 year old Detroit vehicles (including trucks, the one thing they still do well) that fee more worn.

Like they always have, by selling trucks to terrorists:

I would think terrorists would buy used so they are harder to track.

I don't get the appeal of newer Land Cruisers.  They are stupidly expensive and too nice to take off road.

It's a JOKE!

Terrorists love Toyota because they are dependable AF and getting parts for them shouldn't be a challenge.

I don't know what it is but I want one badly. I was hoping the next gen would come to the US since I'd like to get a few more years out of my car. I guess I will be buying a new one in the spring or buying used in a few years. Other option would be to wait until the next version of the 4Runner comes out in probably two years.

Pretty sure those guys aren't buying them new.  They go to auction and are sold off an end up everywhere.  Just ask the plumber from Texas whose truck ended up with ISIS.

The Toyota Land Cruiser starts at $85,415.
The Lexus LX starts at $86,580

Why not just sell only the Lexus in that price range?  The Sequoia will still be around and its not even that much difference in price compared to the GX.

The Land Cruiser died in 1984.  FJ40

That seems to be the plan. The LX will get a redesign and be sold in the US but not with Toyota badges. While they have similar base prices, options push most of the LXs up to about $100000. I'm not a fan of the Lexus styling and don't like driving a vehicle with a luxury brand badge. The next LX also will likely be even more expensive as they push to make it even more premium.

I remember when this news was making the rounds and for some reason it surprises people that terrorists and militia would use their own materials and weapons to fight with.

Just step back and think about it for a second. Do people really think Molotov cocktails are made with government issue glass bottles? People dont fight in street clothes?

I guess we dont see so many BRAND NAMES associated with war, and that strikes people as odd. So when they find one, they seize upon it. Do people do this with skittles?
