The front grille, headlight housings, and the fog lights surroundings have all been dipped in dark chrome. Moreover, the Heritage Edition rides on 18-inch bronze wheels by BBS. As a matter of fact, the Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition is based on the current-generation LC200. In the bid to increase the ground clearance to enable this special edition to conquer the off-road terrains, the manufacturer has done away with the running board and lower body side moulding.
