The legendary Toyota Land Cruiser SUV is finally ready to change a generation. Fans of the brand have known the current SUV for 14 years.

The new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will not give up on a reliable frame structure, but it will become stiffer and get a larger wheelbase. A hybrid will appear in the engine range of the novelty.

The debut of the novelty is promised to be organized on August 1. But pre-orders will start in the spring – you can book a car from the end of March. Japanese magazine BestCarWeb writes about it. In May, the manufacturer may reveal details of the future premiere.

According to the interlocutor of the publication, the next Land Cruiser 300 will receive a new platform based on the TNGA architecture. The 4.8-liter V8 will disappear from the usual list of engines. Its place will be taken by a 3.5-liter “turbo six”. It will keep company with a 3.3-liter turbodiesel. In the future, this list will be supplemented by a hybrid power plant. It is indispensable due to new emission requirements, which will become tougher by 2030.

The role of the gearbox will be assigned to a six-speed automatic transmission, a full drive. All these technical details have not yet received official confirmation.

Land Cruiser 300 will cost 500 thousand yen more than its predecessor
