The redesigned new Land Cruiser (300 Series), the successor to the 200 Series that debuted in 2007, is a station wagon model. As the flagship model of the Land Cruiser series, it has in every generation led the way in vehicle evolution while incorporating the latest technologies.

The development objectives:
1. Inheriting and evolving the Land Cruiser's essence of "reliability, durability, and off-road performance"
2. Creating a riding experience that enables the driver to drive with ease on any type of road in the world without tiring easily

With these objectives in mind, Toyota adopted the new GA-F platform based on TNGA while keeping the frame structure, which is the foundation that protects the Land Cruiser's essence. Furthermore, Toyota redesigned the Land Cruiser's character by merging technologies accumulated over many years with the latest technologies, to achieve such improvements as vehicle weight reduction, lowering the center of gravity, the adoption of a new powertrain, and new interior and exterior designs.

The frame itself was redesigned to reduce weight and increase rigidity. Various steps were taken, such as the reduction of the total weight of the vehicle (by 200 kg) including the frame and the body, lowered center of gravity, weight distribution, and improved suspension structure. Based on these improvements in features, as well as through improvements obtained through actual driving tests by evaluation members, including in-house drivers with advanced or master-level technical skills and drivers who had participated in the Dakar Rally, Toyota aimed to create a car that is easy to drive and does not easily tire the driver both on-road and off-road.

To further improve the traditional off-road performance, the following developments and new technologies have been adopted:
▪ Improvement in the basic suspension performance (wheel articulation: a number indicating the ability of a tire to stay on the ground)

▪ Improved road-holding performance through the adoption of the E-KDSS (Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) (first in the world)

▪ Adoption of the Multi-Terrain Monitor, which instantly displays obstacles as viewed from the driver's viewpoint

▪ Adoption of the Multi Terrain Select, which automatically judges the road surface and selects the best driving mode

Driving performance
A newly developed V6 twin-turbo engine ( gasoline and diesel) is used to achieve class-leading driving performance and drivability that surpass those of a conventional V8 engine. In terms of environmental performance, Toyota is aiming to globally reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 10%* a year compared with the previous model by combining the newly developed Direct Shift-10AT (10-speed automatic transmission) with lighter body weight.

Toyota Land Cruiser Main Specifications:
▪ Petrol Engine – , 6-cylinder (V6), twin-turbo petrol
▪ Max output – 415 PS (305 kW)
▪ Max torque – 650 Nm
▪ Transmission – 10-speed automatic, AWD

▪ Diesel Engine – , 6-cylinder (V6), twin-turbo diesel
▪ Max output – 309 PS (227 kW)
▪ Max torque – 700 Nm
▪ Transmission – 10-speed automatic, AWD

Interior, Exterior & Safety
On the exterior, the all-new Land Cruiser has pursued functional beauty in line with the Land Cruiser's heritage, such as light positions and bumper shape that are unlikely to be damaged during off-road driving. On the interior, a horizontal instrument panel is provided that easily captures the vehicle's position even during off-road driving. Additionally, Toyota pursued operational comfort by positioning switches that can be intuitively operated according to function, and using shape and color designs that improve operability.

As for the package, placing priority on off-road performance, the vehicle size including the total length, total width, and wheelbase, as well as both the departure and approach angles have been kept the same as the previous model (excluding some grades).

The new Land Cruiser has adopted the latest Toyota Safety Sense active safety package with additional advanced functions. Two functions have been added to the pre-collision system that helps avoid a collision or reduce damage by detecting pedestrians (daytime and nighttime) and cyclists (daytime). The first is a function that detects oncoming vehicles at intersections and oncoming pedestrians crossing the street when the vehicle is turning in either direction. The second is an emergency steering and crash avoidance function, which assists with steering and lane keeping and is triggered when the driver performs a steering maneuver to avoid collision.

Furthermore, the new Land Cruiser has adopted the new Parking Support Brake, which helps prevent accidents by recognizing obstacles in front and back of the vehicle in a parking lot, approaching vehicles when the vehicle is backing, and pedestrians.

Toyota plans to launch the new Land Cruiser all over the world starting this summer.
