They pulled out of a market where they sell an extra 0 a year so they certainly have a track record here.

Which of the two has more brand familiarity in USA? Sequoia or Land Cruiser?

The Land Cruiser is basically unknown in the US, and trying to lux it up to compete with Land Rover would make the LX redundant. So I can see them cutting the Cruiser and just revising the LX in the US.

Um, its not unknown....its been in the Toyota portfolio since '57 so the LC name is legendary. Its just so expensive now most buyers can't buy it and it competes with Rovers and endless other SUVs (including the LX), most with newer technology (folks that don't tend to keep vehicles over 10 years). Those other choices are just more luxurious and fewer owners that bought it new are interested in taking it offroad, and the LX even less so.

2 things: Thought the LX/LC refresh was MY21. I guess unofficially its now MY22. Next thing is, could they possibly just mistaken the GX rather then the LC? Originally the MY20GX has a EOL at MY22, and MY23 is where the new ones suppose to launch or the GX dies. Again all speculation here. It`d be sad to see it go, but I assume the LX just sells more and its just numbers at this point

Car guys know about it and consider it legendary. It might as well be invisible otherwise. Toyota doesn't do marketing for it and it's nearly double the price of a Sequoia. I can't remember the last time I saw one on the road, which is weird given there's an SUV craze going on.
