The Toyota Land Cruiser Commercial will be re-joining the market later in the year, the Japanese manufacturer has confirmed. Sales of Commercial 4x4s have fallen sharply since the demise of the Land Rover Defender, leaving the Mitsubishi Shogun and the recently relaunched Land Rover Discovery Commercial as the most viable options.
