Fans, get ready. The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is going to present the new generation of the SUV. The 60th anniversary is near, and it is a perfect moment for the new vehicle after 14 years. The company is working on it, and we found the first clues.
Interior changes, exterior redesign, and even the engine room updates will make the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 an all-new SUV. Series 300 is on the way, and we can already find some shocking stories about it. Well, not all of them are certain. But still, the interest is heating up, and here is what you can expect from the longest-serving model in Toyota’s lineup.
A few months ago, information about the Land Cruiser production shutdown appeared on www.forbes.com. Fortunately, this information is incorrect, and we can expect a new generation of this Toyota SUV very soon.
New Look For the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300
It’s almost six decades since the LC is on the market. The company separated luxury and utility models in 1984. Ever since the comfort-oriented version tries to close the gap between these two. And this SUV is the closest to the goal. Other rivals lack something. But, the Land Cruiser offers everything – premium interior, space, performance.
But, the biggest downside of the LC is its look. Ever since the current generation debuted in 2007, it is the same. Facelifts and updates made small cosmetic changes. But now, the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will come completely redesigned and ready for new challenges.
Under the Hood
Toyota doesn’t have too many options here. Buyers of the full-size SUVs want big engines. A 5.7-liter V8 meets all requirements and delivers superb performance with 380 hp and 400 lb-ft. Also, a unique suspension and shocks setup will make the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 an excellent off-roader.
Sadly, Toyota confirmed they are not going to deliver a diesel drivetrain for Tundra truck and other big rigs. So, at this moment, we will have to look for rumors about a hybrid engine. Sooner or later, the full-size SUV will introduce this kind of powertrain. It might be too early to see it in production in 2021, but the concept could debut.
According to the latest news, the new 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, in combination with an electric motor, will replace all current engines in the Land Cruiser. This hybrid powertrain will have a power of 350 hp and 361 lb-ft.
Release Date and Price
The next generation of this fantastic SUV we can expect in 2021. Also, we expect that its price will be increased. However, we will have to wait a few more months for official information.
