Toyota Land Cruiser 6×6 Pickup
As you can see in the images, Rostislav Prokop from Hotcars has essentially resurrected the Land Cruiser as a formidable 6X6 pickup truck. It sports a stylish black-and-white paint scheme with a red stripe in the middle. The Toyota Land Cruiser 6X6 looks like an all-white truck if you look at the build from the left side. From the right side, it looks all black. The bold choice makes the off-roader very exciting. This 16-footer Land Cruiser is gunning for the Mansoury-built Mercedes-Benz-AMG G 63 Limited Edition UAE 50th.
The 6X6 Land Cruiser comes with three axles. The SUV has been chopped and turned into a short-bed truck. It comes with cool features like a dual-cowl induction hood and high-flow dual exhaust pipes. The rugged metal bumpers wrap around and smoothly integrate with its fender flares. There is also a double-row LED light bar for late-night driving. Inside, the Land Cruiser 6X6 can be powered by a Toyota’s 5.7-liter V8 engine. With twin turbos, it can output 600-700hp of power.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the most popular off-road vehicles across the world. It was originally launched in 1951. Back then, the popular vehicle was essentially a redesigned Willys MB Jeep that Japanese soldiers found in the Philippine jungle during World War II. Since then, the Land Cruiser is seen as a rugged and reliable four-wheel-drive vehicle. It was Toyota’s most popular model in the 1990s. However, it saw very low sales in recent years. Hence, Toyota discontinued the model in 2021.
