Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 To debut In May 2021
Fresh information has appeared on the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300, including information on the anticipated launch for the SUV which is scheduled to take place at the end of May 2021. In addition, the latest GR Sport (GR-S) version is being upgraded over the LC300 model to provide a more capable Off-road SUV without compromising on-road dynamics.
The model is focused more off-road than the traditional Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 from the current Land Cruiser GR version. The Land Cruiser GR-S, with a mesh front windshield, redesigned bumpers, 18-inch wheels, and special trim finishers inside the cabin, is expected to start to make the cosmetic distinctions.
Land Cruiser GR-S will have a new generation of Toyota’s Kinetic, the dynamical suspension system for the front and rear locking differentials (KDSS). The system features hydraulic systems to power the stabilizer bar of the car, helping to enhance stability and body roll at speeds while enabling increased roll joints at lower speeds. The hydraulic mechanism of the current KDSS will be forgotten in favor of an electronically regulated system for the new-gene system in LC300.
Even equipment would certainly comply with the more advanced LC300s Land Cruiser.
The standard Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 could have up to five versions – four standard and the above-noted GR-S in some markets. The four-wheel-drive is likely on both versions of the system, which can be provided in two or three rows of higher variants. Any hardware will skip lower versions. The basic version is said, with optional additionals including an after lock differential, a widescreen touch screen, and a unique biometric fingerprint sensor for starting your car, which will include a 9.0-inch touchscreen, 18-inch wheel, and a headlamp.
More variants will be added in the package such as large, 20-inch wheels, torque-sensing limited-slip, leather upholstery, fired and ventilated seats, fingerprinting mounts, adaptive suspension systems, 4-zone climate control system, 360-degree camera, 3D terrain scanners with the underground camera.
On the safety front, the Land Cruiser should have technology like the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 driver aids that are included in the radar cruise control system, lane divergence warning and lane support, and automatic braking.
Spy photos of the SUV have indicated a special edition for the 70th Anniversary that will be published in a number of markets, but updates to the LC300 series are still not known.
The Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 comes with a range of V6 turbo-petrol and diesel engines that will discontinue the current-generation SUV V8. The new LC200 is available with a range of 4.6 to 5.7-liter V8 gasoline, depending on its demand, and a 4.5-liter V8 diesel. The LC200 is available for the industry. Selected markets also have a 4,0-liter V6 petrol option.
A new 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine will be used in the petrol model, while a new 3.3-liter V6 motor is planned to be used for the diesel. The diesel is supposed to release 306hp and 700Nm of torque to 415hp and 650Nm of petrol. Much more than the outgoing petrol and diesel versions, these outputs make the new LC300 more powerful. Compared to 5.7 liters of V8 on the LC 200, the torque amounts to 386hp and 544Nm while V8 diesel of 4.5 liters will reach 272hp and 650Nm.
On a further point, a petrol-hybrid variant will also be used.
Though Toyota has sold the LC200 and the Prado for several years in India, both SUVs stopped at the time of the switch to BS6 emissions standards. The upcoming Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 petrol, which will be produced by July 2021, is scheduled to be produced by September with GR-S and diesel versions. There is no proof at the moment that the latest LC300 is being unveiled in India but you might expect either Toyota or Lexus to arrive at a later date – a new-gen model based on the LC300 is also expected to replace the LC200-based LX SUV.
