As long as Toyota has sold the Land Cruiser those of us in the U.S. have gotten screwed when it comes to options and parts that are available on U.S. models. Here is a quick list of parts and features that were not available for the 60 series Land Cruiser in the U.S. but were available in other markets around the world.

  • Diesel engines
  • 5-speed manual transmission
  • Winch
  • Full-floating rear axles
  • Cable differential lockers
  • Inclinometer
  • Passenger side grab bar
  • Sun roof
  • High roof
  • Ambulance doors
  • Cool paint stripes
  • Rear sliding windows
  • Hand Throttle

The only thing we got in the U.S. that other markets didn’t was more chrome. Great.
