Although Land Cruiser Is Always Thought To Be Similar To The Prado, The 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser Would Be Completely Different, Especially From The Prado
Land Cruiser has its own reputation in the auto industry, so having 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser should be exciting. Plus, there are new updates stated to be coming with this model. As it was mentioned before, the Land Cruiser has become one of the most legendary names in the auto world. In fact, it is one of the longest and also most reliable running models that are being used on the road. Unfortunately, the current generation (the J200) was released in 2007 and it has a poor fuel economy. But it is a good thing that the all-new Land Cruiser (known as the 300 Series) would have all the updates and improvements, so it is something to anticipate.
Rumour has it that Toyota is planning on their next-generation 4×4 type that is called the J300. After more than 12 years remaining the same, it’s high time for the J200 Land Cruiser to be renewed with new styles and body construction. For the upcoming 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser, there have even several image leaks showing the updated off-roader. New features and new evolutionary design are included in the design, such as the one-piece tailgate. Some of the recent image leaks show ready form final production form, which may support the rumour.
Be advised that Toyota hasn’t said anything about the rumour, although there are image leaks scattered all over the net. Toyota hasn’t confirmed or denied those rumours, which mean that there are still chances that they may be true. Or probably not. Who knows? But in a sense, it seems that the new Land Cruiser will focus more on offroad abilities and aggression. Some auto fans even state that the 300 Series may include the GR-S line from Gazoo Racing brands. This trim would come with rear and front locking differentials, offroad tires and wheels, and also Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System. All of them are packed in the TRD 4Runner offroad.
Engine and Performance
If everything goes as planned, it’s most likely that the new Land Cruiser won’t be using the V8 gas engine with a 5.7-litre capacity anymore. The company is likely using the V6 twin-turbo engine with a 3.5-litre capacity (able to generate 409 hp) or the V6 turbodiesel 3.3-litre capacity.
Price and Release Date
The pandemic seriously affects the production of J300. Some said that the SUV would be debuted in April 2021, which wasn’t happening. Some, however, say that it’s possible that Toyota would introduce the new Land Cruiser in its 70th Land Cruiser anniversary that takes place on August the 1st. But if those dates aren’t true, it’s always possible that the reveal takes place during Tokyo International Motor Show in the fall.
In terms of price, Land Cruiser isn’t exactly cheap. It’s notorious for the high tag. If you want to wait for the upcoming J300 release, be ready for its exorbitant tag. There was an Australian report claiming that the new 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser would be around $5000 costlier, which means that it would be sold for more than $95,000 a unit.
