May 18, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

Information has been published on the Web regarding the composition of the engine range for the Japanese SUV Toyota Land Cruiser 2022 model year. The novelty will not receive the usual V8 engine, but, on the other hand, two turbocharged V6 engines will be available to buyers, which will be more powerful than the old V8s.

According to the latest data on the LC300 SUV, its world premiere will take place at the end of this month or early next, so it is not surprising that there are more leaks of various kinds at the moment. After yesterday’s massive leak of information about a more powerful version of the GR Sport SUV and some advanced technologies, there is now data on the composition of the engine range of the iconic Japanese SUV.

A table has appeared on the Instagram page showing the two engines Toyota will be offering at launch. It is a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 petrol unit that will produce 409 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 650 Nm of torque in the range from 2000 to 3600 rpm.

Thanks to the use of forced induction, this engine outperforms the naturally aspirated 5.7-liter engine of the previous version of the SUV.

The LC200 has a maximum V8 engine output of 381 hp. (544 Nm), which are achieved in the speed range of 5600 and 3600 rpm, respectively. At the same time, the new turbocharged engine should prove to be significantly more economical than the V8.

As for the other powertrain, it is a 3.3-liter V6 diesel with 302 hp, which is available at 4,000 rpm and a healthy 700 Nm, available in the range between 1,600 and 2,600 rpm. The table also shows the increase in power compared to the older diesel engine, the 4.5-liter V8 twin-turbo engine.

The abandonment of the V8 was not a big surprise, as there have been reports of a new turbo V6 engine for over a year that could replace it. However, a September 2020 Toyota patent has hinted at a new twin-turbo V8, possibly for Lexus models. In February 2020, a Toyota insider told us that the engine will be installed in models priced at $ 90,000 and up, with the LC-F getting it first in 2022.
