Land Cruiser gets more power and torque

Toyota has upgraded the Land Cruiser with more power and torque coupled with more technology and greater comfort.

The new version of the Toyota Land Cruiser, rated as one of Ireland’s most powerful and practical 4×4’s, is arriving in Ireland in October with more power and performance. The Land Cruiser remains unique in its segment for its ability to combine outstanding quality, durability and reliability with off-road performance and ever greater levels of luxury, occupant comfort and ownership prestige.
The updated, 2020 Land Cruiser further enhances this reputation with a more powerful 2.8 litre diesel engine, the adoption of Stop & Start technology (automatic transmission only) and upgrades to the multimedia system.
The proven 2.8 litre, 4-cylinder, DOHC, 16 valve, common rail diesel engine benefits from an increase in both power and torque. Maximum power output has been increased by 27bhp to 204bhp at 3000-3400 rpm and maximum torque has increased by 50 Nm to 500 Nm at 1600-2800 rpm. Despite this the towing rating remains at 3 tonnes, slightly lower than some of the competition.
When coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission, this Land Cruiser has a maximum speed of 175 km/h and lowers its 0-100 km/h acceleration time to 9.9 seconds – an improvement of 3.0 seconds over its predecessor. Despite a significant increase in power, torque and acceleration; these improvements also come with a saving in fuel consumption and CO2 as those models with automatic transmission are now equipped with Stop & Start technology. On-board, equipment levels have been enhanced through the adoption of an upgraded multimedia system. With faster software and screen response, a multi-touch screen and a customisable Home view, the new system offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Toyota claims that no other SUV can offer the updated 2020 Land Cruiser’s unique combination of off-road performance and on-road dynamics. Now more than ever, its powerful road presence, enhanced performance and higher levels of on-board technology enhance its reputation as a more premium 4×4 with a blend of go-anywhere capability, comfort and refinement.
Entry prices for the new models start from €45,160 including 2% VAT reduction, and from €38,171 ex VAT. It will be available for test drive in October 2020. The new Land Cruiser is available for pre-order from 28th September.
