The covers have officially been lifted off of Toyota's Land Cruiser 300, and it will be introduced locally in August 2021.

The range features new petrol and diesel powertrains - a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 petrol and 3.3-litre turbodiesel V6 - with outputs of 305kW and 650Nm and 227kW and 700Nm, respectively. Both engine options are coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The LC300 adopts a new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, the first body-on-frame execution thereof, increasing torsional rigidity while being significantly lighter than its predecessor.

Refined than its predecessor

Three grades will be offered locally - GX-R, ZX and GR Sport - though detailed specification regarding pricing and model line-up will be issued nearer to its launch.
