2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300
SUV enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the next generation of the iconic Land Cruiser for years. It’s no secret that the current generation is way too old, as it dates from almost 12 years ago.
The exterior may look fresh, due to a recent update, but there is actually a fine number of features that are really outdated, starting from old tech features on the inside, outdated dashboard look, thirsty engine and much. The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is expected to fix all these features, though we are still waiting for the official confirmation for the upcoming redesign.
- Exceptional off-road performances
- Hi-end interior quality
- Efficient V6 engine
- Lots of standard equipment
- We’ll see about them
The new-generation 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is about to bring plenty of novelties, which seems logical, considering the current model’s age. The Japanese manufacturer is working on a new platform that will underprint all body-on-frame models in the lineup, including Tundra and Sequoia, as well as luxury models like the LX.
In all cases, we could on massive weight reduction and significant improvement in terms of driving characteristics. The new 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will also come with completely new styling. We don’t expect a significant departure from the current model in terms of overall shape, but we definitely count on a new design language, which should utilize much sharper lines.
The cabin of the current model definitely needs an overhaul. It feels outdated in many aspects, so we believe that changes with the upcoming redesign will be significant. First of all, we expect to see a completely new dashboard, with a more attractive layout and finer materials.
Also, the new model should come with a little bit more functional cargo area. Finally, expect to see plenty of improvement in terms of tech features, as the current model lacks some essential hi-tech goodies, give today’s industry standards.

The engine is also one of the things that bother the current generation. A well-known 5.7-liter V8 is powerful and very reliable, but also extremely thirsty. With the lowest mpg ratings, it definitely can’t be considered competitive with many efficient engines that power some rivals.
Therefore, we expect significant modification on this engine, while some reports also suggest the introduction of a V6 option. This model would probably feature a familiar 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 unit, the same one that powers the Lexus LS sedan and delivers 416 horsepower.
