The next-generation Toyota Land Cruiser will be presented nationally in April 2021, before rumors from the best Japanese car. The car manufacturer has already advised dealers about the new SUV.

In a somewhat surprising move, the new Land Cruiser reportedly doesn’t ride on the new F1 body on the frame that models like the next-generation Tundra get. Instead, the SUV retains its current base.

However, the Land Cruiser will receive extensive repairs elsewhere, including new engines, powertrain updates, and improved suspension.



This rumor echoes the claim that the next-generation Land Cruiser is adopting a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with hybrid assistance. There would also reportedly be a 3.3-liter turbodiesel, but don’t expect it to be available wherever Toyota sells SUVs.

Toyota’s insider tells us that, at least in the US, the company intends to sell the new Land Cruiser with only five seats and positions it as a “serious off-road driver“, without the current model emphasizing luxury. This should translate to a lower base price. There is even a report on the possibility of an even rougher version of GR.
