New-gen Toyota Land Cruiser is expected to make its world premiere in the coming months and it will likely be offered with a 3.5-litre twin turbo V6 engine
Toyota is getting ready to replace the existing J200 Land Cruiser with a brand new model. The Japanese manufacturer has been working on the new generation model over a long period of time and its undisguised spy pictures are now out on the internet giving us all the details about its exterior changes, as an evolutionary approach has been followed.
The upright front fascia of the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser consists of heavily chromed horizontal grille bars with a prominent Toyota badge sitting on the second slat. In a rather unique manner, the grille section is surrounded by U-shaped black air intakes. The headlamp cluster is sharper than the outgoing model and it also features integrated LED Daytime Running Lights.
The lower portion of the bumper has chrome-trimmed cornering fog lamps. The tall pillars ensuring a large greenhouse, new roof rails, rectangular door-mounted wing mirrors, square-shaped wheel arches, newly designed wheels, chromed window line, slightly raked front windshield, etc are some of the notable highlights when viewed from the sides.
At the back, the new generation Land Cruiser comes with revised wraparound LED tail lamps, updated bumper, roof-mounted spoiler, shark fin antenna, and upright tailgate are available. The interior spy shots indicate the existence of a new steering wheel with mounted controls, a new centre console and analogue dials separated by a large digital display.
Elsewhere you could find a large touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and connectivity features, automatic climate control system, heated and ventilated front seats, multiple airbags, different drive modes, off-road focussed controls, transfer case selector, new buttons and dials, etc are available.
As for the performance, the Toyota Land Cruiser J300 will likely use a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine in regular and hybrid forms, and a smaller 3.3-litre V6 diesel motor. The global debut of the upcoming LC is expected in the coming months before reaching international markets and it could reach India as well in the near future.
