The Toyota Land Cruiser has always at the top of several luxury off-road-ready SUV seekers lists thanks to its rally heritage, astounding reliability and immense capability balance with refined luxury, comfort and safety. The LC200 first arrived in 2007 and has only seen mild updates to styling, safety, infotainment, tech and aesthetics in 2015. The dominant form has always found takers and the same principles look set to define the new model as the LC200 gives way to the new Land Cruiser LC300 and what an upgrade it is!

From the leaked images online on a “TOYOTA” YouTube channel, the bold new styling immediately distinguishes the new Land Cruiser LC300 from its predecessor. The huge front only leads to a more towering presence. It’s longer and should look even more intimidating coming up in rear-view mirrors. The all-new LED headlights are another major element. Inside, we expect to see even more luxury kit from smart connectivity and large 12-inch screen for infotainment, flexible seating, and a panoramic sunroof, among several other features including the latest Toyota Safety Sense suite.

The powertrain department of the new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is where big changes are galore. Japanese auto media have reported that the 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel gives way to a smaller but more powerful 3.3-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine with 313 hp and 687 Nm. Similarly, the huge 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine will be replaced by a 3.5-litre, twin-turbo V6 petrol engine good for 426 hp and 590 Nm. A new 10-speed automatic transmission will send power to a transaxle for variable four-wheel drive.

The new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 has already been spotted at some stock yards in major markets around the world and should be formally revealed soon.
