There are a lot of rumors about 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser so far. The manufacturer has changed it often, but now we can say that model is finalized so they could send it to the market. There are a few exciting changes and new trim version.
- The manufacturer has changed the engine offer including new hybrid engine
- The design is unique and modern
- The cabin is too simple
- Price is very high for the class
The manufacturer has revised this model several times, so we have seen few versions so far. It seems that they have finally defined the design of it, so a new generation of 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser will come as a redesigned model. They will use the TNGA-CV platform, which they have already shown on other models. It will surely be more significant than before and have a higher towing capacity.
Longer wheelbase promises better design and a larger cabin. On the other hand, we expect the same level of luxury and attractiveness. However, the manufacturer will not drop the recognizable design of the boxy SUV, with rounded lights and gridded grille. The rear end is stylized but still flat with a squared trunk door.
There could be few exciting changes in the design of the cabin inside of 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser. The manufacturer inevitably changes the size of the cabin, with great space for eight passengers. The model comes with three rows of seats. We expect an updated infotainment system and upgraded safety program, with new driving assisting features. As always, Toyota offers a new Safety Sense pack.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine
Current Land Cruiser runs on a 4.6-liter V8 engine in the US, with an optional diesel engine that manufacturer offers in Australia and Japan. However, the manufacturer has decided to change it with a V6 twin-turbocharged model finding it more useful and economical.
So, we expect that it will be the same model that the manufacturer has used on Lexus LS. It is 3.4-liter V6 that produces 416 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The second option could be a 3.5-liter V6 turbodiesel model with a four-wheel driving system and automatic transmission.
However, there are rumors that the manufacturer will use another model, a hybrid engine, which should be a combination of the 3.5-liter V6 and electric motor. The model will have at least 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. With a combination of the CVT transmission, it could be very economical and robust.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date and Price
Although we presume that 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is already finished, there are chances that this model slip to 2022, due to happenings on the market and troubles that manufacturers have with selling. However, if that happens, the model will surely come with these significant changes that we shared. When it comes to the price, it should not be so higher than before. So, expect that it could be around $85,000 with an optional increase in that number.
