The Toyota Land Cruiser 300 has been rendered based on spy pictures recently captured by an enthusiast. The digitally rendered images give us a good idea of what to expect when the premium Japanese SUV officially breaks cover.
As depicted by Kolesa.ru, The Toyota Land Cruiser 300 shown here adopts the bold front styling with a large chrome grille and advanced LED headlamps that are connected via a U-shaped air intake. The large door mirrors with the integrated indicators are included as well the foglamps in the lower part of the bumper.
At the rear, the Toyota Land Cruiser 300’s modern taillamp design has been depicted with the double-opening tailgate and robust bumper. The bold set of alloy wheels, colour-coded wheel arches and roof rails are depicted on the side, as noticed in the sampled spy pictures.
The official reveal of the highly anticipated Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is expected to take place next month. A number of reports suggest that the SUV will retain its ladder-frame chassis and solid rear axle configuration but there will be major changes to the powertrain.
As reported, the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will not be offered with the historic V8 mill. Instead, we can expect it to be powered by the brand’s 1GR-FE naturally aspirated 4,0-litre V6 petrol engine, as found in the Hilux and Land Cruiser Prado, or the F33A-FTV 3,3-litre turbodiesel in either V6 or straight-six guise rumoured to be sourced from Mazda.
The V35A-FTS has also been mentioned for the upcoming 4×4. This turbocharged 3,5-litre V6 is currently used in the Lexus LS500. If true, this would deliver power to the drivetrain via a 10-speed automatic.
One rumour also suggested that the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 could go hybrid-electric as an attempt to push Toyota’s Eco-friendly offerings forward.
Recently, a breakdown of trims was detailed by a Japanese publication that gave details on what we could expect from a sporty Gazoo Racing Toyota Land Cruiser 300. On this, it’s understood that an all-new suspension setup and bold body kit will be applied to appeal to performance enthusiasts.
