Like past cruisers, petrol and diesel will be of two types, according to information released to Kakaku and digested by Creative 311. The Japanese forum has received details from the dealer about the next generation Toyota Land Cruiser. It won’t be called a 300-Series Cruiser when it launches in other parts of the world this summer, but its unavailability makes it even more interesting. Here’s what the leak says.
Like past cruisers, petrol and diesel will be of two types, according to information released to Kakaku and digested by Creative 311. The base models start with a dual-turbo 3.5-liter V6, taken from the Lexus LS500 and have 420 horsepower. The three-row-interior is fixed with manual seat adjustment, full LED headlights and 60/40 rear seat split with 18-inch wheels. Rear locking differential may be an option.
There is a power seat, sunroof and 40/20/40 rear seat split to help load long items from five trim levels to another. For the rear two, the Hawaiian front seats, bright-finished 18-inch and wood-grain steering are of medium quality. Kick sensor optional for rear and remote sunroof.
Up to the next level, a 3.9-liter turbodiesel V6, which produces 90 to 30 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque is available. Both engines are matted with a 10-speed automatic. U.S.-market Land Cruisers get the deluxe features we know, including 20-inch composites, rear ventilated seats and a constant turn signal. The optional 12-inch touchscreen converts 9- or 10-inch settings to minimal trim. Most importantly, Toyota’s VDIM vehicle mobility management software and active stabilizer suspension system should provide a very comfortable ride.
However, if these leaks come out true, the quality of true enthusiasts is the new top-spec GR-S trim, which gets the Gazoo Racing label. Enables towards hard core-off-roading, which adopts the principle of “less”, which eliminates VDIM, continuous flashing and alternatively sunroof. The front and rear Variations and Toyota’s KDSS system are standard, and the wheels come back with a larger 18-inch diameter of 18f-road tires.
As expected, the V8 is gone, but the pressurized trigger V6 produces more power than its predecessor naturally desired 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. All trim comes with a new fingerprint authentication start button that fights land cruiser thefts that take you to Russia and other countries, where the Toyota SUV is the vehicle of choice for those who benefit from a better underground economy.
In particular, nothing is mentioned about the hybrid version. The trader is expected to follow suit by 2022. Production of petrol models will start on July 1, 2021, while diesel models will start production from July 19 to early August.
