The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser is headed back to North America after the nameplate exited temporarily three years ago. Thing is, our version is different from the 300 Series that’s sold in the rest of the world, which can be confusing for anyone other than diehard Land Cruiser enthusiasts.

You might hear the nickname “Prado” thrown around when people talk about this new U.S.-market Land Cruiser. That’s because it reflects the Land Cruiser Prado that’s sold elsewhere in the world. Like all Prados going back to the ’70s, this new Land Cruiser is on a shorter wheelbase, it uses a smaller engine, and it’s less expensive than the full-size truck.

We’re just scratching the surface right now. Let’s dig in deeper to see what separates the two ‘Yotas.
