The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser With New Platform, Twin-Turbo V6.
The new Toyota Land Cruiser is here. The first new generation model in about 14 years, its face follows the design language of the old generation 200 series Land Cruiser, but it has a lightweight body. That is thoroughly extruded. The V-type 8-cylinder naturally aspirated engine has been abolished and the downsizing V6 turbo high efficiency engine has reduced CO2 emissions by 10 percent.
For the power configurations, a newly developed twin turbo 3.5 liter V6. It pumps out 409 horsepower and 650 Newton meters of torque. Despite having two fewer cylinders the pair of turbos help the V6 develop nearly 30 horsepower more than the V8, while torque is substantially up by almost 80 pound feet of torque. The gas engine works with a ten speed automatic transmission.
The interior has been subjected to massive changes to accommodate a standard 9-inch infotainment or an optional 12.3 inch screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, wireless smartphone charging, a 360 degree camera and a head-up display. A powered tailgate will also be available, along with an electrically adjustable steering wheel, air ionizer, and even a fingerprint authentication system.
Toyota latest Safety Sense array has been implemented in the 2022 Land Cruiser and it includes adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and adaptive high beam.
Probably scheduled to be released in the latter half of 2021.
