When it comes to world-known Japanese brand Toyota, we can say that it has been present in the market for a very long time together with its popular off-road model Land Cruiser. According to the information our team has got, it seems that the hybrid version of this SUV might be released soon as a 2019 model.
The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid will represent an updated edition of one of the best and most expensive off-road vehicles in the market. It will keep most of its traditional and well-known exterior design features for its faithful fans combined with modern and innovative ones. This handsome and attractive SUV will be based on body-on-frame platform. Toyota will tend to improve its off-road capability and suspension as well as its fuel economy. The new Land Cruiser Hybrid will undergo some distinctive changes, especially in the front fascia. The hood will be reworked and it will also get a redesigned chrome grille. The headlamps with daytime running lights as well as the fog lights will be using the LED technology. This 8-seater will be standing on a new set of 18-19 inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires able to face with any challenging areas and conditions. In the back part of this model, you will find a bit modified LED taillights.
The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid will offer three rows of seats that will be able to accommodate up to eight passengers. The front seats will be power-adjustable and offer the heating and cooling options. There will be plenty of cargo room, but the second row of seats can be folded flat if you want to get some extra space. The third row of seats will be completely removable. All in all, the cabin will be very spacious and comfortable. When it comes to technology, the driver will get a 9.0-inch touch-screen display with the infotainment system. This model will also provide a four-zone automatic climate control and the JBL audio system with 14 speakers. Even the rear seat passengers will get their own entertainment system on the 11.6-inch screen and an optional DVD. Safety systems and drivers assist features such as airbags, a rearview camera, parking sensors, ABS and traction control will be included as well.
You probably know that the current model uses the 5.7-liter V8 under its hood. Such an engine has been able to deliver 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. It been mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Things probably will not change with the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid, but this engine will probably be combined with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. The total output and other numbers have still been a mystery.
