New Toyota Land Cruiser: See why it’s better than ever before!

Fulfill the brand new !

It's been 72 years considering that launched the really first , and ever since there have been over 10 generations of this off-roading legend! The question is, has this new edition deserved the wait?

Well based on appearances alone, we 'd state it absolutely has! The colony Cruiser rolls up with a retro, boxy style that reminds us of a timeless Defender, Suzuki Jimny, and Mercedes G-Class. Whether you're looking at it from the front, side, or rear, the blocky style is clear to see and we absolutely love it!

What's more, Toyota will also be launching a restricted edition First Edition model which increases the retro style a lot more! This will show up with rounded headlamps, as well as the option of some limited-edition two-tone paint tasks.

While the outside is keeping things retro, the interior has actually been especially modernised. It might keep things a bit blocky, however there's a huge infotainment screen on the dash, a digital drivers display, along with a big centre console that can even house a refrigerator.

There are a couple of engine options offered, although they won't be released in all markets. When it concerns fuel, the entry-level will be a 2.7-litre 4-cylinder with 163hp and 246Nm. There will also be a more effective 2.4-litre turbo gas with 281hp and 430Nm, however, both of these will not be offered internationally. The entry-level diesel is a 2.8-litre turbo diesel with 204hp and 500Nm, which is quite similar to the engine from the outgoing Land Cruiser. You can likewise expect a moderate hybrid and full hybrid choice to go on sale in the future.

We do not know the cost yet, however provided the last Land Cruiser expense from a minimum of ₤ 40,000, you can anticipate to be paying a bit more for this new design. But will it deserve it ?! You'll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!

      Turbo, 4 cylinder, hybrid.
      Never, if they’re going to give us this junk just go to electric.
      The repair bills will be crazy .
      Been a Toyota fan my whole life but not with this junk.
      For every dollar you say that the pump you’re going to spend $100 more in repairs

      ​@InsaneBimmeroverpriced too. lc200 and lc 300 are way too much overpriced compared to patrol , which is way cheaper and also very reliable

    I’m happy Toyota is dialing it back to the formula they had in the 80s – a straightforward 4×4 utility. I wonder what this means for the 4Runner now that they seem to occupy the same space.

      4runner is dead i thought?

      @Chickitter Techin US it’s still pretty popular, so much so that they’re usually going for around $15k USD over MSRP $444 in the US, but people want a new 4Runner. It hasn’t been changed since 2013 besides updated tech I think.

    3. S Avatar

      4runner is longer than this one and offers a third row too. If one wants something less off-roady than they can go for Highlander. If u want that and a bit larger – Grand highlander and if the full blown flagship – in the US u go for Sequoia, everywhere else – Land crusier 300.

      @Chickitter Tech they were planning on discontinuing it in the early 2010s but sales skyrocketed. The 6th gen should be past the R&D phase by now so there will be some overlap in the market with the two for the time being once the 6th gen does get released but that probably wont be an issue considering how popular both the vehicles will be.

      It’ll be redesigned soon, I’m sure they’ll make it fit. I’m hoping they make the 4Runner a true wrangler/bronco competitor.

    Absolutely love this! Cant wait to see these on the road. Shame they don’t get detuned V6’s from the 300 though. Also pity they still continue with the gutless 2.7l petrol, they really struggle in Nairobi (5000ft above sealevel.)

      The 2TR engine is lethargic but lasts forever, that’s why they have stuck with it.

      Such a cool comment! Here in South Africa, we only get the 2.8 diesel, no petrol motor for us.

      @Marcel Motorzoneza Africa will almost exclusively get the diesel only, I’ll be surprised if they bother with the petrols.

    The fact it starts mid 50’s in the US is the best part.

    It looks more like the FJ Cruiser than the Land Cruiser and that is not a bad thing.

    The 2.8 diesel sound to be very like that fitted to the old 150 series and lately to the Hi-Lux. It may be a mild hybrid and it does have a very updated body but basically its hidden bits seem not to be much changed. Hopefully its driving dynamics will be very much improved, but it needs to be because the 150/Prado/Colorado/LC or whatever your preferred name for it is, was first sold in 1996 or so and had the D4D 3.0 diesel from around 2001 or so and, of late, its driving dynamics were well behind the curve and it was past its sell-by date by at least a decade.

    All Land Cruiser models are available here in South Africa, from the Prado to the 300 to the 700, even the big Lexus is available here, so I am sure this model is definitely coming to SA.

    Honestly, this is hands down the best looking Toyota in a long time and including the GR86. Finally, the brand is stepping up and releasing a lot of interesting cars.

    Overall the car really looks like a Rolls Royce Cullinan but in a very nice way. It has the mix of retro and modern looking design with that boxy shape and considering a land cruiser it has great road presence and a good off-roader (considering it’s history).
