Toyota Land Cruiser is the oldest chassis in the world after Jeep (Willis) and Land Rover. Jeep, Land Rover and Land Cruiser are the pioneers in building cars for driving on difficult roads. These products provided the possibility of nature tourism and military use about 70 years ago, and today they have various models with various amenities and safety.
The first Toyota Land Cruiser was introduced in 1955, inspired by the first generation Jeep. This product with the code J20 and J30, had two-door and four-door versions; But today’s Land Cruiser is a luxury, heavy-duty chassis with a high-powered engine and a price threshold of $ 80,000. This product has a variety of competitors from different countries to attract customers in the global market and is not as profitable for Toyota as in previous years.
Over the past two decades, the global Land Cruiser market has been characterized by large headlights, windshield-sized window sills, and a high ground-facing bumper. These factors are now forgotten with the 2022 model and the J300 generation. The new model has small headlights, a large windshield and a relatively wide bumper, which will probably be a hassle for passing deep pits. Of course, Toyota designers will prepare a special version for the new Land Cruiser, which will be suitable for hiking and will have a short bumper with large wheels and TRD series features.
The rear view emphasizes the flat and cubic shape of the body for the 2022 Land Cruiser. The trunk lid will be recessed and the taillights will be narrower than previous models. The standard model is 230 mm from the ground and can cover an ascending slope of 32 degrees and a descending slope of 26.5 degrees.
In the interior of the Land Cruiser J300, more efforts have been made to satisfy the customer and improve the beauty of the cabin. The dashboard overview looks simple and has no diagonal lines; While a lot of physical keys are embedded between the touch screen and the handle. This product will not have a panel behind the digital steering wheel. The center display is available in two models with sizes of 9 inches and 12.3 inches.
The most important development in the new generation Land Cruiser is related to propulsion. The 2022 model will lack a high-powered 5.7-liter engine to use the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. This version provides 410 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque, which is about 30 horsepower more than the V8 model. In some countries, a 3.3-liter, 305-horsepower, 700Nm-torque Lander Cruiser diesel engine will likely be available.
The new Land Cruiser accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.7 seconds, which is satisfactory for a luxurious, wide chassis. Additional information on fuel consumption and top speed of this car will be announced in the future.
The 2022 Land Cruiser will first be available in Russia and the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf region. This product will also enter the US market; But given European trade records and mandatory European standards, it is unlikely to be exported to the Green Continent. In Europe, there is a Prado called Land Cruiser.
