On August 1, the new Toyota Land Cruiser will make its premiere, but recent teaser pictures give you a good sense of what to anticipate. To develop a representation of what the new SUV may look like, the Kolesa team used the images that were already on hand.
Toyota is using the FJ62 model from the late 1980s to demonstrate the new Land Cruiser’s vintage appearance. The forthcoming model shares the classic model’s blunt snout and rectangular headlamps. Chiseled fender flares are also seen on the front end.
The fenders seem to add the majority of the visual flair to the new Land Cruiser’s plain, unadorned flanks. There is a noticeable roof rack, and the windows seem to be large.
Next-Gen Toyota Land Cruiser Rendering
We currently only have one image of the interior of the new Land Cruiser. The rocker switch for alternating between the high and low gear ranges is displayed. Additionally, H4L has a middle setting, which we assume is for high range with a locked differential.
All indications point to the next Land Cruiser riding on the body-on-frame GA-F platform from Toyota. However, there hasn’t yet been any official confirmation. The Lexus GX, which has a twin-turbo 3.4-liter V6 engine with a 10-speed automated transmission and 349 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, rides on the same underpinnings. Additionally, that variant has a lockable Torsen limited-slip center differential and permanent four-wheel drive. The center console’s rocker changes the 4WD setting between High and Low. No H4L setting exists as we see on Toyota.
Full-time four-wheel drive and a locking Torsen limited-slip center differential are included in the GX’s standard drivetrain. Compared to the previous model, the electronically controlled transfer case switches between 4WD-High and 4WD-Low more quickly. A locking rear differential is also available on the Overtrail grades.
Toyota officially announced the new Land Cruiser’s arrival in America. Pricing information and an exact launch date in the US are not yet available. From the launch on August 1, we might have a better sense of that information.
