Toyota has officially unveiled the all-new Land Cruiser and the legendary model has seen a major update over the
previous generation. Toyota has launched the new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser in the US market after three years.
The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser will be available in three grades: Land Cruiser 1958, Land Cruiser, and the limited-run Land Cruiser First Edition.
Since its debut in the US market in 1958, Land Cruiser has evolved over the years from the famous two-door models like the 40 Series with fold-down front windshield, white roof, and rear jump seats to the capable but fully loaded 200.
More importantly, the Land Cruiser has in fact become more affordable and smaller in size, when compared to its
predecessor. The new model is 4.4 inch narrower and 1.2 inch shorter than the previous model, which is claimed to make it a more capable off-roader.
Toyota has also unveiled the 2024 Land Cruiser with a hybrid-only powertrain option. It gets a 4-cylinder, 2.4-litre
turbocharged petrol engine which is paired to an electric motor and 1.87 kWh battery pack. Power is delivered via an 8-speed automatic transmission and the powertrain produces a combined output of 326 hp and 630 Nm of
torque. Complimenting its go anywhere heritage, is Toyota’s advanced 4WD system which will be offered as standard equipment.
The series, which was the last generation sold in the States, combined the unwavering power of the Land Cruiser with premium luxury features.
Now, Land Cruiser is true to its heritage, returning as a high-quality off-roader at a more accessible price that will take a wide range of customers on many backcountry adventures around the world.
