New engine for Toyota Land Cruiser

New engine for Toyota Land Cruiser
Toyota has introduced a new diesel engine for the Landcruiser and Landcruiser Commercial, along with new trim grades.

The new 2.8-litre unit is RDE2 compliant and is offered with an automatic or manual transmission.

Power is increased to 204PS, compared to the previous 177PS engine, while fuel efficiency is also improved, according to the manufacturer.

With 500Nm of torque, the new powertrain delivers a 2.8-second reduction in the Landcruiser’s 0-60mph acceleration time – hitting the benchmark in less than 10 seconds.

The Land Cruiser line-up now offers two equipment grades, Active and Invincible.

The Active grade is the new entry point to the range, available in three and five-door formats and with five or seven seats.

The specification includes wireless smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, together with an improved multimedia system. Operated via an eight-inch touchscreen, this benefits from faster software and command response and offers a customisable home screen so that owners can prioritise their most frequently accessed functions.

The Active grade’s features include 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control air conditioning, smart entry and push-button start, roof rails and heated power door mirrors.

At the top of the range, the seven-seat Invincible also adopts the smartphone integration package and is newly available with an optional Black Pack. Customers who opt for black leather upholstery can also specify an all-black exterior, including the front grille, door mirror casings, rear light surrounds, side mouldings and rear garnish, plus clear lenses for the rear light clusters. The look is carried through to the cabin with black finish for the centre console and transmission tunnel. Black alloy wheels can also be specified, as an additional option.

The Invincible comes with Multi-Terrain Select, a rear differential lock, centre Torsen limited-slip differential and Crawl Control, plus Adaptive Variable Suspension with electronically modulated rear air suspension.

While being able to deal with challenging conditions, the Land Cruiser Invincible also offers comfort and convenience features, including triple-zone climate control, power steering column and front seat adjustment, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, leather upholstery, multi-view monitor, 14-speaker JBL Synthesis premium audio system, LED headlights, 19-inch alloys, rear privacy glass and illuminated side steps.

The Land Cruiser Commercial retains its existing line-up of short and long-wheelbase versions (three and five-door) in Utility and Active trims. They both adopt the new engine and the Active grade gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The new Land Cruiser range is on sale now with first deliveries of the passenger models from October, followed by the Commercial versions later in the autumn. All new vehicles come with Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile warranty.
