Roughing It in Luxury The 2020 Heritage Edition features Land Cruiser's full complement of amenities, including ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel with power tilt and telescoping and memory, power moonroof, four-zone automatic climate control with 28 cabin air vents, and Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start. The cooler in the center console has also been jettisoned to open up more storage space.

Toyota is keeping standard technology features inside, such as the stereo system and touchscreen display. The 8-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission with intelligence is paired with a full-time 4WD system using a TORSEN limited-slip locking center differential and a 2-speed transfer case with selectable low-range.
