Overall in Tibet tourism transport, there are  following types of vehicles in Tibet. And all of these vehicles were in use since early 2016. Those old types of Toyota Land Cruisers 4500 cc were out of service since February in 2016. So all those kind of cars pictures you see on any other websites are just for your interests references and no travel agencies here in Lhasa Tibet will offer you those types of tour vehicles.
