Toyota Australia has confirmed specs and pricing for the new LandCruiser 300 ahead of a local arrival towards the end of 2021.
At launch, Toyota will continue to offer the GX, GXL, VX and Sahara trim levels along with the off-road-focused GR Sport and luxury Sahara ZX variants.
Pricing starts at $89,990 plus on-road costs for the GX and tops out at $138,790 plus on-roads for the new Sahara ZX.
The popular V8 turbo-diesel engine has been replaced by a new 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 diesel unit across the range that produces 227kW and 700Nm.
For context, that’s up 27kW (+13.5 per cent) and 50Nm (+7.7 per cent) when compared to the outgoing 4.5-litre twin-turbo diesel V8’s 200kW and 650Nm.
The new V6 is matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission that sends drive to a full-time four-wheel drive with a centre differential lock.
Braked towing capacity across the range is rated at 3500kg. The big girl holds 110 litres of fuel, comprising 80 litres in the main tank, and 30 litres in the secondary tank.
Dimensionally, the GX, GXL, VX, and Sahara measure 4980mm long, while the Sahara ZX is 5015mm long, and the GR Sport is 4995mm long.
The GX is 2000mm wide with a snorkel. The GXL, VX, Sahara, and ZX are 1980mm wide and the GR Sport is 1990mm wide.
Every model is 1950mm tall and features a 2850mm wheelbase.
All grades get 235mm of ground clearance, with a 32-degree approach angle on all bar the Sahara ZX, which claims 24 degrees due to a unique bumper. All models boast a 25-degree departure angle.
The 300 Series utilises the TNGA-F body-on-frame platform which the brand says provides greater body rigidity, reduced mass, better weight distribution and a lower centre of gravity.
Higher grades will available with the new electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (e-KDSS) that offers a larger suspension stroke by disabling the front and rear stabiliser bars.
Other firsts include a new Multi-Terrain Monitor that instantly displays obstacles as viewed from the driver's viewpoint and the adoption of a Multi-Terrain Select function that automatically judges the road surface and selects the best driving mode.
