LandCruiser 300

Toyota estimates that globally, a total of

10.4 million Land Cruiser units have been sold since the first LC was launched in

1951. And currently, more than

300,000 units a year are sold in

170 countries and regions.

To continue to live up to its reputation as a vehicle that allows

people to go anywhere and everywhere, Toyota has improved the model's reliability, durability, and

off-road performance with the

2021 Land Cruiser 300.

Whereas the previous generation are powered by V8 mills, the Land Cruiser 300 is now powered by a choice of a 3.5-liter gasoline or a 3.3-liter diesel, which are both

V6.

The

gas-powered V6 creates

410hp and 650Nm of pulling power, while the

diesel makes

304hp and 700Nm. Both engines use

twin turbochargers, and are mated to a new

10-speed automatic

transmission .

Based on the new

GA-F platform, the Land Cruiser 300 is some

200 kilograms lighter than its predecessor, thanks to improvements in the frame and body, lowered center of gravity, weight distribution, and improved suspension structure.

The chassis was tested by

technicians and drivers from the brand's

Dakar Rally team, Toyota said.

To further improve the Land Cruiser's traditional off-road performance, the following developments and new technologies have been adopted.

The basic suspension performance, particularly the wheel articulation, has been improved. Articulation is the degree indicating the ability of a tire to stay on the ground.

The new

Multi-Terrain Monitor, instantly displays obstacles as viewed from the driver's viewpoint, and

Multi Terrain Select automatically judges the road surface and selects the best driving mode accordingly.

Toyota said that light positions and bumper shape have been designed to not incur damage during off-road driving.

Despite all these changes, the vehicle's length, width, and wheelbase, as well as both the departure and approach angles, have been

kept the same as the previous model.

On the road, improved road-holding performance is provided by the adoption of the

E-KDSS Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS).

Inside, the Land Cruiser 300 looks set to retain its luxurious interior.
