Toyota Cressida JDM Car

JDM fans always demand the impossible. They want a rare car that no one has. Therefore, I would like to present a car in Japan that has variations, but is not listed in the list with American specifications. This is the Toyota Cressida that is familiar in the American JDM landscape. It is very popular as the basis for KAIDO RACER, BOSOZOKU, VIP style and high-society (luxury) car. It was popular in Japan in the 1980s as the basis for remodelled cars when the car was released, and is now increasing in price as a used car. As it is in the United States, many people modify the car into nostalgic street racers or bosozoku styles.

The Cressida is best known for being sold under the Mark 2 name in Japan. The first generation Cressida corresponds to the third generation Mark 2 (X30 series / X40 series). It is called BUTAME in Japan. The Japanese version also featured a 2-door hardtop. Brother Car Chaser also debuted. This car was an American Cressida and does not have the blinker parts.

The Cresta was joined by the fourth generation X60 line that debuted in 1980, and the Mark 2, Chaser, and Cresta became siblings. Strictly speaking, it is a significant trivia that the Cresta appeared slightly earlier than the fourth-generation Mark 2 and Chaser, and only the early model Cresta X50 series. It’s Cresta, not Cressida. This fourth generation had the Mark 2 and Chaser 4-door sedan and 4-door hardtop, and the Cresta only had a 4-door hardtop as a variation. By the way, the North American Cressida is almost identical to the Mark 2 sedan, with the only difference being a 5-mile bumper.

The 5th generation X70 series, which debuted in 1983, also has 3 brothers. The Chaser only had a hardtop, and the Cresta only had a sedan. The North American Cressida that runs here in the United States looks like its Cresta face on the marque sedan. The Japanese version does not have the 2.8-litre engine specification, but is a car equipped with the 1G-GTE twin-turbo engine. If you’re a JDM fan, you’re going to want a Mark 2 hardtop twin-turbo that doesn’t exist here in America. However, it is rare in Japan and the price is rising.

The 6th generation X80 series, which debuted in 1988, has the same lineup of 3 brothers as the X70 series. The American version was just the Mark 2 sedan with a 5-mile bumper. Therefore, if you are a JDM fan, you can instantly get an atmosphere of Japanese specialties by ordering bumpers from Japan. The twin-turbo specification was the 2-litre 1G-GTE in the first half, but the 2.5-litre 1JZ-GTE appeared in the latter half. There are many fans here in the United States who simply import twin turbo engines from Japan and replace them.

After the 7th generation X90 series appeared in 1992, the car was no longer exported to North America. This is the end of Cressida’s story. By the way, in Japan, the last in the 9th generation X110 series was the Mark 2. After that, the actual successor models X120 series and X130 series were produced, but the car was named Mark X. Production was discontinued in 2019.
