The SUV was originally set to be released on May 31 or June 1.
Japanese automaker Toyota has published a teaser announcing the release date of the next generation Land Cruiser. The presentation will air live on the brand’s official YouTube channel on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 19:00 UTC.
The fresh video is only six seconds long, but the brand will likely release a few more videos before the premiere. By today we know that the SUV will move to TNGA-F architecture, with no eight-cylinder engines. Buyers will be offered a 3.5-liter turbocharged petrol V6 with 409 hp and 650 Nm, as well as a diesel 3.3-liter “six” with 302 hp and 700 Nm. In both cases, the transmission is a ten-speed automatic gearbox.
The new “Cruiser” will become lighter due to the use of aluminum. A 15-liter smaller fuel tank (the new units are more economical) will contribute to “losing weight”. Judging by the numerous spy shots, the exterior design is evolutionary, and not revolutionary. In GR Sport version the length of the car will make 4965 mm, and the most expensive modification will be 20 mm longer. The latter will also be distinguished by an abundance of chrome, oversized wheels, the presence of several touchscreens in the cabin and an advanced audio system JBL with 14 speakers.
A four-zone climate control, a camera under the floor and KDSS – electronically controlled system of kinetic stabilization of the suspension are declared for the model. However, it seems that this option will not be available for all Cruisers.
