Is this the new Toyota Land Cruiser? An Autoblog reader sent in these photos of what may be the next Cruisey, being tested in the Sultanate of Oman. It makes sense, considering that, for hot-weather testing, the Middle East is Asian and European carmakers' version of our own Death Valley. If it is, the new model looks a bit sharper and more distinctive than the "fat boy at the dance" model that's still at the top of Toyota's SUV range. Then again, it could be a one-off built for some sultan or other; you know how they love to stand out among shiekhs.
