2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 United States – Next (2022) will the Toyota Land Cruiser use a new 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 electric hybrid power plant in the 300 series? Will it be according to the new TNGA architecture? Will there be a new style and technology?
This unofficial rumor comes courtesy of Practical Motoring in Australia. The source claimed the entire new 300 series Land Cruiser will be officially shown in August 2020 – possibly for the Australian market. Land Cruiser is currently one of the most popular SUVs in Australia. The current 200 series is powered by a large turbo-diesel engine.
It would make sense that the new Land Cruiser would come to Australia, and perhaps to be ahead of some other world markets.
We are not currently able to confirm nor deny this rumor through Toyota’s official sources. We will take a careful eye on this issue in the near future and provide any updates.
We said another anonymous source with insider information that the next generation Toyota Tundra in the U.S. would be a 2022 model, and the new Tundra will be available in December 2021. Toyota has not officially commented on this information.
While the Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series rumour mill is going into overdrive, the first details about its incoming Lexus LX twin have been reported, and the engine front has some big news: a twin-turbo V8 petrol.
As reportedly, the LandCruiser 200 Series recently lost eight of its 227kW/439Nm 4.6-litre sequestered bent and 300 Series successor V8 will be not going back, which will be the only petrol engine option instead of a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6.
Conversely, the current LX naturally continued with eight twisted absper, a 270kW/530Nm 5.7-liter unit, Allcarnews reports, to be replaced with a dual-turbo V8 in the new model, most recently per Lexus dealer conference leak.

However, the next eight next LX will not be the only petrol engine on offer, the 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 will be allegedly available, albeit in hybrid form, to be shared with the electric motor LandCruiser in the 300 Series.
Either way, the report claims that the next LX is up to the luxury ante by seriously trying to compete with Bentley Bentayga, which currently costs hundreds of thousands more dollars.
This upmarket push is at odds with Toyota’s plans for landcruiser 300 Series, which “hardcore will lose all sorts of luxury focus in favor of off-road”, according to the report (see a separate story below).
Like the LandCruiser 300 Series, the upcoming LX is expected to use a stairframeversion of Toyota’s ubiquitous TNGA platform and combinewith just one all-wheel drive system in 2022.
