Toyota unveils the all-new Land Cruiser
The final farewell to the V8!
The current Toyota Land Cruiser is a canonical age, having been launched fourteen years ago! The king of off-roading is now back with a thirteenth generation that is more advanced than ever and pushes the outgoing model into a well-deserved retirement. Behind a timidly evolving design, the latest model consolidates its technology.
The front end adopts a new grille with four satin grey bars. It is linked to more tapered lights than before, equipped with LED technology. The profile is in line with previous Land Cruisers and features large windows in a particularly cubic design.
The rear has new taillights. The interior benefits from a better integrated infotainment screen and a revised centre console. On the technical side, the Land Cruiser 300 is now based on the TNGA modular platform, which allows a significant reduction of 200 kg in the vehicle's weight.
Suspension travel has been improved to ensure better off-road comfort. New features include the Multi-Terrain Monitor, which displays obstacles in the vicinity of the vehicle, and Multi Terrain Select, which automatically selects the most suitable driving mode.
Under the bonnet, the new Land Cruiser says goodbye to the V8 engine for a twin-turbocharged V6 available in two versions. The 3.3-litre diesel offers 309 PS and 700 Nm of torque. The 3.5-litre petrol boasts 415 PS and 650 Nm of torque. Both models are equipped with all-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
