Modellista Upgrades The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser And Its Badass
Just after a month of release, the 2022 Toyota Landcruiser has been upgraded by Modellista, a Japanese tuning company. The modifications are mostly on the exterior as the engine and interior remain the same for now.
Modellista modified the front and rear bumpers of the Toyota Land Cruiser and that modification really improved the overall appearance. The front bumper has a different foglight housing and a black lower bumper opening give the SUV a sportier look. On the rear, Modellista added a rear diffuser, continuing the sportier styling. Also available are two different alloy wheel styles – gloss black or matte black, and both measure 21 inches.
Modellista is known for upgrading Toyota, Lexus and Daihatsu brands in Japan. Although the Land Cruiser is still new, the Japanese tuner company is expected to further upgrade the SUV in the near future and this time the interior will be involved and probably an engine upgrade.
