Toyota has unveiled the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser TRD concept at the ongoing 2015 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in Nevada. The model is named ‘SEMA Edition TRD Land Cruiser’.
The SEMA TRD LC features a two-inch front-only lift, a TRD front skid plate, a TRD performance off-road functional air snorkel, front TRD adjustable remote-reservoir coil-over dampers, rear TRD adjustable remote-reservoir dampers and springs tuned for off-roading, same ride height as the regular 2016 LC, a cat-back dual-tip exhaust, TRD 20×10-inch performance wheels and 285/55-sized tyres on front and rear.
The Land Cruiser concept also adds a TRD brush guard, LED driving lights replacing the stock lamps, TRD tubular running boards along the wheelbase of the car, a roof-mounted cargo pod for extra storage space, and a custom Silver Pearl exterior paint job.
The LC is one of five models Toyota Racing Development has brought to the 2015 SEMA Show. The others are customized Avalon, Camry, Corolla and Highlander. All of them are painted in the same silver shade and feature a custom TRD embroidery on the seats.
