2021 Toyota Land Cruiser
The ultimate luxury off-roader is finally about to get a complete redesign if we can rely on the latest reports. The iconic nameplate has been around for decades, while the current model hasn’t been changed since 2008. Although still competitive, it’s about time to see a redesign, considering that most rivals are significantly younger. Therefore, we have big expectations from the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser, which should come completely new, already in late 2020.
Everything is about to be changed and improved, so we have no doubt that the new model will continue to deliver an unparalleled combination of luxury and off-road capabilities.
- Exceptional off-road capabilities.
- Class-leading reliability ratings.
- Luxurious cabin.
- Efficient hybrid powertrain.
- V8 will probably remain thirsty.
- Potentially high price for the hybrid.
The next generation is about to come with a lot of changes and the first thing that comes to mind is the platform. We have no doubt that the new model will be closely related to the next-generation Tundra, which is about to hit the market next year as well. Both models will ride on a new F1 platform, which should provide better efficiency, better driving characteristics and more.
Of course, the upcoming redesign should bring completely new styling as well. It is still early to talk about details, but we presume that the new 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser won’t feature radical changes, but rather an evolution of the current design language.
On the other hand, we definitely expect big changes on the inside. The current model may feature a well-built cabin but definitely lacks a modern feel. Considering that the cabin dates from 2008, it’s no wonder that most rivals have nicer cabins. Therefore, we expect that the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser will come with completely new dashboard design, as well as with more functional interior, with more space in the third row and a more generous cargo area. Of course, we also count on a full load of the latest tech features.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the current generation is poor fuel economy. A good thing to know is that the company prepares an all-new powertrain option. It should be a hybrid system, based on a V6 engine, with a max output of around 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. Besides plenty of power, this system will be also characterized by a pretty good fuel economy. When it comes to the current V8 unit, it will probably remain in the offer, though with a couple of modifications that would provide better overall efficiency.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser sometime late in the next year. When it comes to the price, the current model goes around $85,000 and we expect that the new model will feature a similar price tag.
