Every couple of years rumors circulate that Toyota plans to stop selling the Land Cruiser in USA. This time the story is that the 2021 200 series LC will be the end of the line.
Earthcruiser plans a transition from Fuso to Chevrolet 4500 cab-forward chassis, powered by 6.0L gas V8. Since Chevy doesn't offer a front drive axle in its medium trucks, Earthcruiser will employ a custom setup of their design.

Autoblog has a chance to drive the Tanoak prototype/concept/show vehicle. They report a 1,000 kg / 2,200 lb carrying capacity and 7,000 lb tow rating. Lots of photos with the article.
The rules say equipment for sale should be personally owned. We don’t have a section for “parts found on Craigslist” so I will move the thread to the “vehicles found on Craigslist” area.
Let's put this note in the domestic section, if only because VW has a plant in Tennessee, and will build this pickup in USA to avoid the "chicken-tax" tariff.
in recent days, VW has strongly hinted that its plans for a midsize pickup have advanced from "concept" to "pre-production" status...
Two blokes from New Zealand are traveling the Trans America Trail on Honda Grom 125 cc machines. Presently they are in Arkansas. A good read.
