The Toyota Land Cruiser has long been renowned for its reliability, durability, and off-road performance. Now, this iconic vehicle has been further improved to meet the needs of its global customers. The Land Cruiser is available with a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 diesel engine on the GR Sport and ZX models, which produces 305 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, this powertrain is unlikely to be available in the United States in the new Tundra or Lexus LX.
The new Land Cruiser also offers an improved driving position and a comfortable interior that promotes smooth driving operations even in challenging off-road environments. The Land Cruiser has been used around the world to support more satisfying lives, livelihoods, and lifestyles. It has promised to take people everywhere and back safely. The Land Cruiser GR-S is expected to include off-road wheels and tires, front and rear locking differentials, and the kinetic dynamic suspension system found on the 4Runner TRD Off-Road.
Toyota claims that the new Land Cruiser is 441 pounds lighter than the 200 series and has a lower center of gravity due to the powertrain being pushed slightly further back and lower than before. The new Land Cruiser features a hydraulic power steering system that can withstand use in harsh environments, as well as an electric steering actuator. To achieve this, Toyota maintained the same chassis structure and combined it with the new GA-F platform, which is based on the TNGA philosophy. Unlike the 200 series, which stored the third-row seats in an upright position on both sides of the cargo area, the third row of the new Land Cruiser can be folded completely flat.
The current Land Cruiser's high price tag may not be resolved with the 300 Series. While Toyota has said almost nothing about it, there have been some revealing leaks of the new SUV. Videos of the event can be viewed on the official Land Cruiser YouTube channel. Current Land Cruiser owners can rest assured that they will continue to receive high-quality service at their local Toyota service center.
The Land Cruiser GR Sport models have a black and red interior along with synthetic carbon details and GR Sport logos on the headrests and on the steering wheel.
