According to those who say they know, the Nissan GT-R won't be the only big debut at the Tokyo Auto Show later this year. Chiba City will also likely host the unveiling of Toyota's next Land Cruiser, and its even richer relation, the Lexus LX470. Once described as "that fat kid at the dance who will kick your ass if you make fun of him" (I think it was Car & Driver sometime in the 1990s), the Cruiser will get a slightly squarer comportment. It'll also get a luxe new interior and potentially Toyota's new 5.7-liter i-Force V8 producing 381 horsepower. Look for it to hit dealerships by mid-2008.
