Toyota reveals new Land Cruiser at Frankfurt motor show

With an off-road heritage spanning more than 65 years, Land Cruiser remains unique in its segment for its ability to combine outstanding quality, durability and reliability with unrivalled off-road performance and ever-greater levels of luxury, comfort and ownership prestige.

Land Cruiser is more widely available than any current Toyota model, being sold in more than 190 countries worldwide. Its unmatched off-road abilities have earned it a rock-solid reputation as one of the world’s toughest and most reliable 4x4s and made it the segment sales leader in the more than 10 European markets.

The new Land Cruiser enhances this reputation with more modern and robust exterior styling, a more sophisticated, comfortable and higher quality interior, and improvements to its dynamic performance and user-friendliness, both on and off-road.

Switchgear on the new dashboard is ergonomically optimised and functionally grouped. The dash also incorporates a large, eight-inch touchscreen for the Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system, Optitron meters and a 4.2-inch multi-information display.

The cabin has been made more comfortable with front seat ventilation, rear seat heating, and automatic climate control, and life has been made easier with the introduction of an electric, heated windscreen, heated washer nozzles, reverse-tilting door mirrors and a new smart key design.

In western Europe the new Land Cruiser is powered by a 175bhp/130kW 2.8-litre D-4D turbo diesel engine. For eastern European markets it is also available with a choice of 2.7 and 4.0-litre VVT-i petrol engines with respective outputs of 159bhp/120kW and 246bhp/183kW.

Land Cruiser’s peerless off-road capability is rooted in its highly durable and deformation-resistant body-on-frame construction, which is now unique in the large SUV segment. The vehicle’s combination of strength and durability provides a high level of damage protection and it is designed for easy maintenance and repairs. Significantly reduced levels of body twisting help the driver optimally position and control the vehicle.

The body-on-frame build also efficiently isolates the cabin from suspension impacts, making even the most challenging off-road conditions more comfortable to negotiate for everyone on board.

The all-terrain support systems help even unskilled drivers make the most of Land Cruiser’s off-road performance. They also make the Toyota one of the most technically advanced, safe, pleasurable and easy-to-use all-wheel drive vehicles in the world.

No other SUV offers Land Cruiser’s combination of off-road performance and on-road dynamics. Its powerful road presence and high levels of on-board technology mark it down as a premium 4×4 with a perfect blend of go-anywhere capability, comfort and refinement.

Wherever you want to go, Land Cruiser will take you there – and bring you back.
