A fresh report out of Japan claims Toyota will offer its upcoming new Land Cruiser 300 in GR Sport form.
According to BestCarWeb, the Japanese firm has developed a GR Sport derivative “in parallel” with the standard model, with the upgrade focusing mainly on tuning of the suspension.
We’d thus expect any Land Cruiser 300 GR Sport variant to stick with a standard engine, likely the rumoured new 3,3-litre V6 turbodiesel mill.
The oil-burning powerplant is tipped to be joined by a twin-turbo 3,5-litre V6 petrol engine (depending on the market, of course), with an electrified version of the latter likely to follow at a later stage.
Interestingly, an October 2020 report out of Australia suggested Toyota wouldn’t rule out producing a full-fat Gazoo Racing version of the successor to the Land Cruiser 200, with the company having reportedly already trademarked the badge.
As a reminder, the new Land Cruiser 300 is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2021, with reports claiming the first units will be on dealership floors in Japan by April 2021.
