The Toyota Land Cruiser https://www.dubicars.com/dubai/used/toyota was redesigned for the 2008 model year. Known as the 200 Series, it shares the 2008 [[Lexus LX#J200|Lexus LX 570]]'s platform and overall design. The frame was all new, derived from the second-generation Tundras{{Citation needed|date=February 2011}} but shortened and strengthened by 20 percent. Bigger brake rotors and calipers were added and the front suspension was made heavier duty than the Land Cruiser's first effort at IFS in the 100-series and this underbelly is also protected by skid plates. Also, the roof pillars were totally redesigned to better protect occupants in the event of a rollover. Though many time-honored Land Cruiser supporters welcomed the re-invigoration of the mechanical aspects of the vehicle, the 200 Series encountered some criticism due to its bland body restyling, with some claiming that Toyota has 'overdeveloped' the classic trademarked Land Cruiser identity in its efforts to fit the Land Cruiser into modern 21st century motoring and vehicle design. While Toyota is guilty of playing it safe with the styling, ever-increasing crash regulations and a demand for creature comforts have played their parts. Nonetheless, the Land Cruiser remains the NATO vehicle of choice and remains a very serious off-roader which can run with a Range Rover in the harshest of environments, though despite improvements it falls short of the Range Rover as regards interior finish and on-road dynamics. Toyota presented its completely redesigned Land Cruiser in October at the 2007 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The vehicle entered production in September and was available for sale from November 2007. Although the new Land Cruiser was presented at its first motor show in Sydney, it was already on sale in Japan, as it has already been launched there in September 2007. It also became available in [[Venezuela]] for sale early in November under the local nickname of "Roraima" (Taken from [[Mount Roraima]] in Venezuela). Early reliability has proved excellent.
