1991 to 1997 Land Cruiser (80 Series)
The 80 Series Land Cruiser debuted in 1991, replacing the 60 Series. It featured full-time four-wheel drive with a lockable rear differential. Over its eight-year life span, it received a number of improvements, including a more powerful 24-valve, 4.5-liter 1FZ-FE inline-six-cylinder engine, anti-lock brakes, and electric-locking front differential. As a demonstration of its rugged capabilities, Toyota entered two Land Cruisers in the 1996 Dakar Rally, placing first and second in the unmodified class.
The 80 Series was also sold as the Lexus LX 450. Featuring some different trim and badging, it was a thinly disguised Lexus Land Cruiser. You can find the paint codes for the 80 series below:
1998 To 2007 Land Cruiser (100 Series)
In 1998, Toyota introduced the 100 Series Land Cruiser, which featured two firsts. It was the first Land Cruiser to have a V8, something the US market had long wanted, and it was the first to feature an independent suspension. Both features were "must have" items for the Lexus LX 470, which was now noticeably different than the Toyota Land Cruiser. Thanks to the V8, power increased from 190 horsepower to 232 and later 271 horsepower, giving the 5,100-lb vehicle much better on-road performance. Find the 100 series paint codes here:
2008 To 2021 Land Cruiser (200 Series)
Toyota introduced a significantly revised 200 Series Land Cruiser in 2008. One of the biggest changes was moving from its own platform to one shared with the Toyota Tundra and Sequoia but strengthened by over 20 percent. It also got a new engine, the 5.7-liter 3UR-FE, with 381 horsepower. It again shared its mechanical parts with the Lexus LX 570. But unlike the previous Lexus LX, the 200 Series offered a completely different interior and exterior from the Land Cruiser.
Sadly, Toyota stopped importing the Land Cruiser after the 200 Series' run ended. The Toyota Sequoia and even the LX 570 outsold it by a margin of almost 2 to 1. However, there are rumors that a new version of the Land Cruiser could eventually find its way back to the US. Here are the 200 series paint codes:
How To Locate Your Paint Code
There's an identification plate inside the driver's door that includes information about your vehicle, including the build date, configuration, options, and paint code. Every factory color has a unique code to identify the paint formula needed to match the paint. In the case of the Land Cruiser and the Lexus LX, the paint codes may be the same, but the names of the paint colors may differ by make.
For that reason, it's important to use this paint code instead of trying to match the paint visually. A lot of colors look similar under different lighting conditions. Likewise, your Land Cruiser's paint color may appear different from the paint code sample. Using the correct paint code will help ensure you get the right match, whether you're buying touch-up paint for minor chips and scratches or planning on repainting parts of your vehicle.
