The Toyota Land Cruiser is so hot in Japan that Toyota Motor Corp. is telling customers the wait for delivery has stretched to four years.
That is up from an already jaw-dropping two-year wait back in September.
On everyone's wish list is the redesigned new-generation Land Cruiser 300 Series introduced last August. It rides on a new GA-F platform that also underpins the Lexus LX full-size SUV.
The long lead time applies only to orders made in the home market, Toyota said.
And even though the Land Cruiser and LX are made in the same factory, the Yoshiwara assembly plant operated by Toyota affiliate Toyota Auto Body, the wait won't apply to the LX, Toyota said.
Americans will not be affected because Toyota has discontinued the Land Cruiser in the U.S.
