2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Release Date Australia – Next generation ‘ Cruiser to appear within months with torque-laden Turbo V6 gasoline-electric hybrid power supply. The new generation Toyota LandCruiser 300 series is only months away from the launch and will usher in a variety of advanced new V6 engines, according to new media reports in Japan.
Arrive in Australia next year, followed by the next-Genesis Lexus LX in 2022, the 2021 LandCruiser 300 series will allegedly be revealed in July or August with a Turbo V6 petrol electric hybrid powertrain.
The last time we reported on the highly anticipated LandCruiser 300 series, Toyota Australia confirms that the large 4WD will be suitable for the purpose, which means that it will continue to offer severe off-roding and drag ability, but would not say what powertrains will be available.
The great Toyota SUV will need to at least adjust to the current model’s 3500kg-drag capacity and new reports indicate that it will be due to a torque-laden hybrid power source based around the Japanese auto-Maker Turbo gasoline v6.
Toyota’s luxury arm Lexus currently works a 3.5-litre V6 hybrid system in its LS 500h and LC 500h models, but their 264kW power and 350Nm torque will not be enough to drag more than three tons.
Instead, if the reports of Tokyo are true, a more probable scenario is a electrified version of the 3.4-litre Twin-Turbo gasoline V6 which has already developed 310kW and 600Nm in the LS 500 limousine – the first Lexus with Turbo-V6 power.
Of course, the new power source is easily the output of the 200 series LandCruiser’s discontinued 234kw/460nm-PETROLV8, and also need to better improve the existing V8 diesel’s 200kw/650nm outputs.
Japanese media also reported that a standard, non-hybrid (and cheaper) non-hybrid version of the same Turbo gasoline V6 is presented along the hybrid for customers who do not require a lot of grunt.
As we reported previously, the new Toyota LandCruiser 300 series can also take a brand new six cylinder Turbo-diesel engine, giving customers three different V6 Power Supply options.
So The new 300 series will certainly adopt a hybrid powertrain, but the question is whether it will be available from launch in 2021 or if it will come later. Toyota has pledged to deliver a hybrid version of each model in its range at 2025.
Japan’s best car magazine reported that the new model could be slightly shorter than the Toyota LandCruiser 200 series. The current vehicle measures 4990mm long, 1980mm wide and 1945mm high. The new model, says the power, will be 40mm shorter and 75mm lower, but the same width, at 4950mm long, 1980mm wide and 1870mm high.
However, given the vehicle is almost sure to get air suspension, height measurements will vary.
It is not yet clear as the Aussie-developed KDSS (Kinetic dynamic suspension system) will be redeployed or replaced by a newer/different chassis setup.
Development of the new Land Cruiser 300 series has already occurred in Australia and abroad, with Toyota Australia who previously confirmed the new LC 300 4×4, will get local engineering essay.
Again, the new model will be based on a rugged leather-frame version of Toyota’s latest platform Architecture (TNGA), but equipped with more indoor and outdoor technology.
This is probably the circa 2.6-ton great SUV will grow in mass, with adopting a gasoline-electric power source and an increase in technical characteristics such as autonomous drive hardware and a upregmerkie in luxury.
The LandCruiser’s ARC competitor, Nissan Patrol, has never matched the Toyota LandCruiser in terms of popularity in Australia, but can face in this decade in the segment of new competitors.
The Koreans are now a power to be counted and have confirmed that a massive eight-seater, learning chassis comes a 4×4, and it tends to wear HYUNDAI first, thereafter Kia badges later.
Also confirmed for Australia is the HYUNDAI safety frontier, another eight seater great SUV that will attempt to convert Toyota LandCruiser Prado owners.
Given prices of up to $130 000 for the outgoing 200 series, top-shelf versions of the new LandCruiser 300 series can easily break the $150 000 barrier, which would mean hard nuclear mud-slinging electric SUVs like the Rivian R1S can also cross-shhop with the new ‘ Cruiser.
