After numerous announcements and leaked photos, Toyota officially presented the new Land Cruiser tonight, whose sales will start during the summer.
The previous generation of the Land Cruiser 200 series was promoted in 2007 and has undergone several adjustments since then.
New Land Cruiser (300 series) was made on the new GA-F platform (based on TNGA), so this vehicle now has up to 200 kg less weight, lower center of gravity and about 10 percent lower CO2 emissions.
The vehicle is 4985 mm long, wheelbase is 2850 mm, offers slightly more space for passengers in the second and third rows (depending on the market, variants with 5 to 8 seats will be offered), a more modern interior, a new infotainment system and a long list safety and driver assistance systems.
In addition to the new exterior and interior design, the Land Crusier 300 also comes with a Toyota Safety Sense active safety package, along with pedestrian detection, a lane keeping system and a new Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS).
The engine range includes a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo petrol engine with 305 kW / 415hp and 650 Nm of torque, as well as a 3.3-liter V6 twin-turbo diesel with 227 kW / 309hp and 700 Nm. All this with a new 10-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The GR Sport version was also announced, which was taken care of by Gazoo Racing, and which will be on the market later this year.
Land Cruiser GR Sport will feature a refined look compared to the regular model, with the help of black fender protection, black mirrors, modified bumpers, new sills, modified grille, black alloy wheels, revised suspension and steering system, as well as seats with red contrasting seams and GR logo on the headrests.
Finally, a reminder that the Land Cruiser is offered to customers in about 170 markets around the world. Sales of that famous off-road model exceeded 10.4 million units, counting from the first generation, which started on August 1, 1951.
