The carmaker is preparing the next generation of its popular SUV, and it is the newest 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser. The upcoming Toyota will get a new engine option, and we can expect changes both inside and out since it will represent the next generation model.
Engine and performance of the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser
In terms of engine options, the newest 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will get the same engine as the current model and there will be one single unit available. And it is a 5.7-liter V-8 engine which is capable of making 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and comes with all-wheel drive configuration as standard. It can tow up to 8,100 pounds. When it comes to fuel economy, it is rated at 13 mpg in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 15 mpg combined.
On the other hand, some sources claim that the new Land Cruiser will also get a new engine option. And it will most likely be a 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbocharged engine. In the Lexus LS model, this unit is able to make 413 horsepower and the torque of 443 pound-feet. The engine will be coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Furthermore, some sources have confirmed that the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will also get a hybrid engine at some point in the future.
The exterior and interior design of the all-new 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser
The all-new 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will finally get a much-needed redesign. The current model has been around for a couple of years, so the new Land Cruiser should get some changes all over the body. The front end will be dominated by the wide, chrome grille and LED headlights which this time might get some small adjustments. Furthermore, the rear end will feature a power-operated tailgate and slightly revised taillights. The base model will ride on standard 18-inch wheels.
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will feature a very spacious cabin with three rows of seats and it will be able to welcome up to eight passengers. However, the third row is a bit tight and it is the best for children. The seats are comfortable and upholstered in leather. There are also some nice wood accents all over the cabin which add a more premium look. In the center of the dashboard, there is a large 9.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will come standard with many standard features. And those include 4-zone climate control, a heated steering wheel, moonroof, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable steering wheel, a 9.0-inch touchscreen, JBL premium audio system with 14 speakers, HD radio, AM/FM/CD player, Bluetooth, USB ports, etc. The safety equipment will include a lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitors, pre-collision warning, etc.
Release date and price
The new 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser should arrive next year. The price is not yet available, but it could get slightly higher than the price of the current model which begins at $85,000.
