Land Cruiser needs a serious redesign if the vehicle wants to stay competitive. Well, it is a luxury SUV that almost closes the gap between utility and comfort. But, it’s been 11 years already since the vehicle launched the new generation. The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser is going to bring a big redesign of the next-gen SUV.
Both options are in the mix, as far as they plan to overhaul the interior completely. It is packed with the latest infotainment features. The cabin is also comfortable and full of high-end features. But, it is quite old. Besides that, there are some rumors mentioning the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser could get a kind of mild-hybrid drivetrain. That is going to cement the top spot for the LC for the future.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Specs
New generation or not, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will stick to the reliable 5.7-liter V8 engine. It provides great off-road skills. Also, the unit is durable and doesn’t require too many maintenance interventions. The drivetrain produces 380 hp and 400 pound-feet of torque. It is not the best output in the class. But, in combination with other segments, makes the Land Cruiser #1 premium off-road SUV.
2020 Land Cruiser Diesel
In Europe and some other parts of the world, buyers can purchase the LC with a diesel drivetrain. It is available as a V-8 unit or a smaller displacement. Well, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser is not going to be the same for the US, Japan, and Europe. If the diesel unit debuts in North America, it is definitely going to be some big displacement. Fans won’t accept smaller units. A V-8 is a perfect choice, but the European 4.5-liter mill is unlikely to come overseas. Toyota will look for the other solution.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser TRD Pro
Another big addition for the 2020 Land Cruiser could be a TRD Pro package. The company currently offers it only on three models – 4Runner SUV, and two trucks – Tacoma and Tundra. The 2020 Land Cruiser is the next vehicle to get this special package of equipment for an off-road drive. Its magnificent skills will get more boost and we can’t even imagine how it could look like. The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser TRD Pro is probably coming as the optional feature or special trim level. Currently, the LC has only one model in the offer.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date
The company is still quiet on the 2019 model. It is possible that no big changes are on the way and they are focusing on the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser. So, we could see the first appearance of the new SUV early next year.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Spy Shots
A Japanese magazine unveiled the concept of the upcoming 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser. There are no official details or spy shots of the model, but the SUV seems fresh. It is unknown if the vehicle is for the market in its homeland or the US, but info on the specs sheet shows it is wider than before. Length and height remain the same.
