2008 Landcruiser – Kuwait

This has been something I have been looking forward to for a while, after work my friend calls me up and tells me Al Sayer brought the new Landcruiser so I picked him up right after work and went to Toyota. He said that its going to be very crowded and there will be people prospecting for the current Landcruiser as you are driving in.

We drove and from the fourth ring road you can see the huge crowd at Toyota, so we went in and parked by Behbehani Porsche instead of their side to avoid the traffic. As I was driving in there were kids asking me if I would sell my Landcruiser, I said yes for 10’500 KD and cash on the spot, they asked what year, I said 2000 Manual V8, then they said have good day! I was ready for them, no way in hell would I sell my Landcruiser!

Then me and my friend walked to Toyota and when you enter I felt like it was Friday Market, I haven’t seen this many ninjas in one car showroom at one time. It was the funniest site in the world, it was honestly a great site. All these people came out to buy the new Landcruiser and some people seemed to have cash ready to take it on the spot. The Toyota sellers were overwhelmed by the amount of customers, people were spilling out of the offices.

Now the Landcruiser is only G, GX, and VX models and price ranging from 10’500 KD to 17’500 KD which is lower then the projected 20’000 KD that people thought it was going to be. On another note the Landcruiser V8 is a 4.7 Liter not like the 5.7 Liter in the US, the Lexus LX is a 5.7 Liter in Kuwait. These cars are going to sell like crazy and I honestly like the look of the machine and its amazing from the inside, I’m not a fan of the rear but its much better in real life then it is in the pictures and the color I liked the most was the white one. The new Landcruiser is bigger then the old one so that is why its more comfortable, they will be flooding the streets soon.

    The old Landcruiser looks by far much better. Now with the new desing It looks like a PRADO =/

  2. 2009? Why did they slap 2009 on the car if its being sold right now??

  3. isn’t it model 2008 ?! :-s ..

    in Oman it’s going to be launched the day after tomorrow, on Sunday, as I’ve been told. They launched the new Corolla last week and are launching the new Cruiser next week.

    From the pictures I’ve been seeing for sometime now I felt that it’s smaller than the old Land Cruiser, not bigger as you said..

    It looks ugly but still, not that bad. It will success anyway and a crazy amount of people will buy it just because it’s a Land Cruiser for God’s sake!

  4. Nice to see that removing the gear knob from Toyota cars while they’re on display in the showroom is not an Oman-only thing. They treat their customers like they’re thieves. Excellent customer service, Toyota. Good thing these cars practically sell themselves.

  5. Thanks very much for the update….I was waiting for it’s Kuwaiti Debut for some time now to see it up close….and thanks for the pics, you’ve saved me a trip to the Alrai showroom as well :)

    Old Land is much better and more “heeba” in the street, This one really looks ugly, but min gdam 7elwah ow min da5el, I guess am going to wait for the new Nissan VTC better. And like Amjad said, some stupid people will just buy it just because its a toyota ..

  10. Tartooob: The thing is, it is one hell of a durable vehicle! So that is why it will sell, this vehicle has options which are new and its offering something different and new.
