Under the hood of these Japanese SUVs, the V6 engine is likely to be located, which will be connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The current generation of the full-size Toyota Land Cruiser SUV belongs to the 2008 model year, which makes it practically “ancient” by the standards of the very rapidly changing segment of SUVs. As insiders tell us, the new version of the model is no longer “just around the corner”. The Japanese edition of Best Car claims that the updated SUV will debut in the fall of 2020.

It is reported that the concept of new items could tentatively present a new form of the model at the Tokyo Auto Show at the end of October this year.

The new Land Cruiser will ride on an updated steel frame. Under the hood will be a 3.5-liter V6 Twin Turbo, which will replace the current 5.7-liter V8 engine. The engine will connect to a 10-speed automatic transmission instead of the current 8-speed transmission. A hybrid version of the SUV can also be represented.

Land Cruiser will receive the Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance system, which will include pedestrian detection at night and a collision avoidance function, if the driver was unable to react in time.

A new generation of Land Cruiser also means that an updated version of the Lexus LX will also be available soon. Data about this car is even more foggy. It is known that the designers of the brand will make a real effort to distinguish the style of these two models. Edition Best Car claims that Toyota is developing two cars at the same time, which means that there should not be much time between their debuts.
