The launch of the new Toyota Land Cruiser is a landmark in the history of one of Toyota’s most enduring models. For more than 50 years the Land Cruiser has embodied Toyota’s core values, establishing a heritage of strength, reliability and rugged performance. In creating a new Land Cruiser for the 21st century, Toyota has not sacrificed these attributes but reinforced them with new levels of refinement, comfort, safety and on-road performance to create a vehicle that competes strongly on all fronts at the heart of the global SUV market.
Replacing the Land Cruiser Colorado, the new Land Cruiser will be offered with a choice of two engines: a new 4.0-litre VVT-i V6 petrol unit and Toyota’s latest generation 3.0-litre D-4D common rail turbo diesel. The turbo diesel will be available from launch on 2 January, with the V6 following from March next year.
Available in three and five-door body styles, with the ‘wide body’ styling treatment on selected models and four distinct trim levels – LC2, LC3, LC4 and LC5 – the new Land Cruiser offers a wider market appeal than ever before.
On-the-road prices will start at £23,995 for the LC2 three-door diesel with manual gearbox. Pricing and equipment levels will give the new Land Cruiser a key competitive advantage in the core UK SUV market.
All new Land Cruisers will come with a three-year / 60,000-mile warranty and three-year paint and 12-year anti-perforation warranties, in line with all other new Toyota models.
