– Offered as a CBU model
– Powered by a 3.3-litre diesel mill
The new Toyota Land Cruiser has been launched in India with prices starting at Rs 2.1 crore (ex-showroom). With bookings starting in August 2022, our sources have confirmed that the refreshed version of Toyota’s flagship SUV will be officially launched in the coming weeks and deliveries will begin soon after.
Likely to be offered in a single, fully-loaded trim, the Land Cruiser will be powered by a fuel-guzzling 3.3 liter V6 diesel motor. The oil-burner motor has an output of 305bhp and 700Nm of torque and is mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission.
Visually, the new Land Cruiser continues an attractive road presence with the front fascia tweaked with a larger front grille with chrome inserts. The LC300’s SUV appeal is further enhanced by square headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and prominent square wheel arches fitted with 20-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, LED tail lamps are thinner and the taller profile adds more Bach appeal.
Inside, the cabin gets a complete makeover with a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a redesigned center console and possibly a dual-tone interior theme.
The new Land Cruiser LC300 takes the CBU route in India like its predecessor and is a replacement for the Land Rover Range Rover.
