Legendary Land Cruiser packs more power and performance

The updated Land Cruiser, with more power and performance, is set to arrive in Tony Burke Motors.

Available for pre-order, Toyota's iconic Land Cruiser, with an off-road heritage spanning almost 70 years, is known for its outstanding quality, durability and reliability, combining off-road performance and now greater levels of luxury, and occupant comfort.

With a reputation as one of the toughest and most reliable 4x4s, the updated, 2020 Land Cruiser further enhances this reputation with a more powerful 2.8 litre diesel engine, the adoption of stop and start technology (automatic transmission only ), and upgrades to the multimedia system.

The 2.8 litre, four-cylinder, DOHC, 16 valve, common rail diesel engine benefits from an increase in both power and torque. Maximum power output has been increased by 27 DIN hp/20kW to 204 DIN hp/150kW at 3000-3400rpm, and maximum torque has increased by 50Nm to 500Nm at 1600-2800rpm.

Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, this gives the Land Cruiser a maximum speed of 175km/h and lowers its zero to 100km/h acceleration time to 9.9 seconds - an improvement of 3.0 seconds over its predecessor.

Despite a significant increase in power, torque and acceleration, Toyota says these improvements also come with a saving in fuel consumption and CO2 as those models with automatic transmission are now equipped with stop & start technology. On-board, equipment levels have been enhanced through the adoption of an upgraded multimedia system. With faster software and screen response, a multi-touch screen and a customisable home view, the new system offers both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity.

The updated 2020 Land Cruiser offers a unique combination of off-road performance and on-road dynamics. Toyota says its "powerful road presence, enhanced performance and higher levels of on-board technology" ensures it is a premium 4x4 with the perfect blend of go-anywhere capability, comfort and refinement.

Prices start from €45,160 including a two per cent VAT reduction, and from €38,171 ex VAT. It is available for test drive at Tony Burke Motors, local Toyota Retailer this month.
