2021 Toyota Land Cruiser could be one of those large comebacks for recovering and improving the good but almost forgotten model. The manufacturer has not so many opportunities to attract new buyers. Since there were no changes in design or engine since the last generation started in 2008, the model has market decreasing in selling for hundreds of models over the years.
The manufacturer has not changed in design much this time either. Old buyers used on this large and massive, perhaps a little robust, baby and they will not change its appearance. The major change comes under the hood, where they will put a completely different engine.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser comes as slightly changed, so its robustness and roughness should recall old days of the model. Maybe the new 300-series that manufacturer announced could make a difference. With 194. 8 in length, 77.9 inches in width and 112.2 wheelbases it could be slightly bigger than before, yet attractive and useful for all kind of users.
With the facts said above, we do not expect that the cabin in 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser will be significantly bigger than before. However, it should be comfortable and attractive as before, with all interesting additions and technology.
The major change in 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser will be visible under the hood. The manufacturer has obviously decided to remove all boring and not much economical V8 engines, so 5.7-liter V8 that makes popular this model, along with the Toyota Tundra, will not be present in versions made for the US. It will still be used in versions for other continents, though.
Instead of this massive engine, there could be used smaller but economical 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 416 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque when it is paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission like on Lexus LS. It is good for the Toyota Highlander, so why it will not be for the Land Cruiser? Finally, there are rumors that this engine could be paired with the electric motor for the hybrid combination. It will also be offered just for particular markets and buyers.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date and Price
There should be visible changes in 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser and changing of the model should continue next year, so 2020 model undergo impressive changes. When it comes to the price, it should not be infected by the changes above, so the base model could cost $80,000 or more with changes in equipment.
