Yup, looks about right. Very niche cars in the list.

I bet the Land Cruiser is a big seller in other places, i.e. the Middle East.

They also lost months of production with the tsunami... Jerry at Boulder Toyota said they were short on rigs to sell until LATE this year. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

I wonder if they are just stumped that land cruisers aren't selling, I bet I know why.... 70 grand?.... sheesh.



Wish we had more input on what Toyota makes, we could have avoided that whole FJ Cruiser IFS disaster... What a disappointment.

Well I read they have put in dual air bags in a 70 series tray back. I would think the same would be true for the 76 series wagon. With a diesel( a v-8 no less) this would be just the right Cruiser for me. So all that holds it up is having it certified for the US market(no small cost).
But I bet they will not do it.

I'm with Robbie, only my vote would be for a straight-6 diesel. That just seems like it is more in the original spirit to me...

For the life of me, I just cannot understand why we can't have diesels here like they do in other countries. I'm not buying the emissions story, I think good ol' uncle Sam is making too much on gasoline. Sucks.
