Next-Gen Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 Global Debut on June 9
The all-new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 is all set to make its global debut on 9th June 2021. The carmaker has teased a small video that announced that the Next-Gen Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 SUV will make its debut on June 9. Sharing a 6-second teaser video on social media of the all-new Land Cruiser, Carmaker gave a hint that it will be the first of many teasers to follow in the coming days before the SUV is completely revealed to the world. The next-generation LC300 is expected to be based on a new TNGA-based platform that will help the new LC300 pack in more tech than its previous year model.
The boxy and upright design of the next-gen LC300 is more or less the same as the LC200. There are some changes made to the vehicle such as a redesigned headlamps, a more prominent grille, a secondary U-shaped vent running along the edge of the grille, fog lamps set low on the bumper, and many more. The sides of the new-LC300 get flared and squared-off wheel arches and multi-spoke alloy wheels.
Next-Gen Toyota Land Cruiser LC300: Engine Specs
Last month the engine specs of the next-gen SUV leaked ahead of its debut. The new LC300 will be made available with a 3.3L turbo-diesel engine and a 3.5L turbo-petrol engine. The 3.3L V6 diesel engine makes 302bhp at 4000rpm of max power and 700NM of max torque between 1600and 2600rpm. The 3.5L V6 petrol engine on the other hand generates 409bhp at 5400rpm of max power and 650Nm of peak torque between 2000 and 3600rpm. However, the previous year’s model of the Land Cruiser was powered by a massive 4.5L twin-turbo diesel engine that puts out 261.4bhp of power and 650Nm of max torque.
Next-Gen Toyota Land Cruiser LC300: Colour Options
The next-gen Land Cruiser will be made available in ten different shades: Classic White, Glacier White, Pearl White Metallic, Black, Attitude Black, Satin Silver Metallic, Graphite Grey Metallic, Ruby Metallic, Avante-Garde Bronze Metallic, and Moonlight Ocean Metallic. The dealerships have already started accepting bookings for the upcoming SUV in the South African market.
The carmaker did sell the Land Cruiser LC200 and the Land Cruiser Prado in India for a few years. We can expect the next-gen Land Cruiser LC300 to make its way to the Indian markets, but not sometime soon.
