According to speculations, 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser will debut in the market as a high-end sports utility automobile. Its makers clearly stated- “the focus was to make a purposeful auto with high off terrain ability.” Other good points include a more spacious cabin, engine variety and adequate technology incorporated.
2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Exterior Changes
Being one of the definitions of SUV, this new 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser will likely keep that tradition going. Bountiful offerings of a new angular 3- chrome grille, new LED light systems and new rear end set with vertical roof pillars will be seen. Tailgates will be seen larger than before giving user’s convenience to load and unload.
Also, fully wide chrome piece will extend towards tail LEDs. New spoilers will also be noticeable. New fog lights both front and rear, as well as beams, are included in its new additions.
Beneath the grille are large vents for proper air circulation. This will keep the engine functioning properly.
For its body construction, lightweight aluminium and carbon fiber have been employed. Overall appearance is muscular, something which everyone expects from a Toyota SUV.
2018 Toyota Land Cruiser cabin is rich and comfortable. Ample space will be seen inside the cabin. Top quality Terra cowhide seats heated and easily adjustable will allow travelers a smooth riding experience.. Plus as for the inside ambiance, travelers will love wood trim and chrome highlights.
Land Cruiser cabins were full of class and luxury and 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser has tried to preserve that panache.
Dash will undergo no such changes except for a few controlling features here and there. Extraordinary looking steering wheels emphasized with wood piece, and a 9-inch infotainment display highlights Toyota’s latest Entune structure.
Behind the front seats are present 11.6-inch display screens. One worthy change is the increase of space in its 2nd and 3rd row. This was one of the biggest flaws of its 2017 model, and that aspect has been taken care of nicely.
Other technological inclusions/upgrades:
- Smart cruise control.
- Improved navigation system.
- Lane parking sensors.
- Collision detection systems.
- New sound system and speakers.
In question is a 5.7 liter V8 turbocharged with the ability of 401 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm and 381 HP at 5600 rpm. 6-speed auto shiftable gearbox will be mated to this powerful engine. Drive configuration is AWD.
Rumors are there that its mileage will be appraised due to its previous poor EPA rating -(14 mpg inside the city and 19 mpg while rolling on speedways.)
Engine type is petrol and its fuel tank capacity is 24.6 gallons. During the testing phase, its mileage inside the city was 334 miles/fuel tank and 490 miles/fuel tank on highways.
Price, Release Date and Competition
2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is expected to be priced at $85,000 and will probably release in the last period of 2017 or the first part of 2018. Its competitors include- Range Rover, Lexus GX and Cadillac Escalade.
