Toyota's top of the line model, the big off-roader Landcruiser, underwent a minor facelift in 2005. Here now are photos showing a prototype of the next generation Landcruiser.

Caught during secret testing in southern Europe, the crew of engineers from Japan and Belgium had the current Landcruiser as well as a Mercedes ML for comparison along with the prototype.

As can be seen despite the burly disguise, the next Landcruiser gets a rounder styling than the current rather square model. Engines are expected to range again from a V6 diesel to a V8 petrol power plant.

The styling of the passenger's compartment looks like it will become even more luxurious than now including more wood panelling and chrome. The new Landcruiser should be ready for release some time in 2007.
