The Century, a full-size sedan, is the most luxurious SUV of Toyota. It is at the top of the food chain. The Japan-only model has been around since 1967, and its third generation, with its powerful V12 engine, began in 2018.

A new report from Japan’s Best Car magazine claims Toyota is preparing to launch an SUV version of the Century. Take the report with the proverbial pinch of salt but the outlet believes it’s going to be based on the Highlander. However, it’s said to be longer than the donor vehicle and have two-row seating with ample legroom for rear passengers.

The publication notes that the SUV won’t be as stately as the sedan since it lacks a V8, but it also claims that Toyota will sell the Century SUV for personal use. Apparently, the V8 is overkill for personal use, and Toyota wants to push buyers up from the Crown to the Century SUV, so a V6 is a better choice.

Best Car Web estimated a surprisingly reasonable price tag for the Century SUV. They think it will cost between $76,000 and $114,000. Those numbers are similar to the new Lexus LX 600, making it less likely that Toyota will bring it here to compete.
