Another week and another Toyota Land Cruiser 300 report. This time the car has been spotted out in public with little to no camouflage. Reports from our friends down under suggest that they came across a picture via the Land Cruiser fan page on Facebook. Here is what you need to know.
From the images that we saw online, the new LC300 looks bigger, bolder and sports are far more prominent and squared-off front end. According to Carsguide the new LC300 is expected to be bigger in almost every key area than the vehicle it replaces. It is reported that the vehicle will be 4970mm in length, 1985mm in width and 1870mm in height, and it will ride on a 2900mm wheelbase.
Japanese media is that the new 3.3-litre diesel engine will produce a whopping 230kW and 687Nm, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The current LC200 is fitted with a bigger V8 diesel, but produces 200kW and 650Nm.
Carsguide also suggests that the LC300 could also get a 12.3-inch screen with navigation and a JBL sound system, a 3D terrain monitor and even fingerprint scanning to prevent theft will be included.
The LC300 will apparently be unveiled to the international media in the coming months. There is still no indication from Toyota South Africa as to when the car will arrive in South Africa but we are really excited.
