The all-new 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser will have much to offer to the SUV community and it won’t be just the off-road capability the Land Cruiser has been known for. The new model will feature a more spacious cabin, comfortable interior, abundance of technological features, solid performance, with a variety of engines and a decent price. Wince its first introduction, the Toyota Land Cruiser has been one of the sentinels when it comes to true off-road capability, but, at the same time, maintaining the luxury elements, as well. We hope the Toyota continues the trend and that the new Land Cruiser will be better than ever before.

Looks like the Toyota decided to keep the current engine, that will be implemented in the next generation 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser, as well. We’re happy to see that there will be no shrinkage in terms of power in order to “go greener” like many manufacturers do now days, but we do feel like some improvement in terms of power increase wouldn’t hurt neither. Still, there is still plenty of time, until the model is officially revealed to the public, se we might just get what we ask for.

2018 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Release Date

To do a quick reminder, the engine in question is a 5.7-liter turbocharged V8, capable of delivering 381 horsepower, at 5600 rpm, with a maximum torque output of 401 pounds-feet of torque, at 3600 rpm. The engine will feature variable valve timing technology in order to cut fuel consumption as much as possible. The drive configuration will be a four-wheel drive and the engine will be mated to an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission system.

The engine is, of course petrol based, with no diesel option whatsoever. As far as the fuel economy is concerned, the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is not the greenest car out there, and never was. With its EPA fuel economy ratings of 13 miles per gallon in the city and 18 miles per gallon on the highway, it is one of the worst performing vehicles in terms of fuel consumption out there, despite the near 400 horsepower engine. As far as the mileage is concerned, the new Land Cruiser is able to travel 320 miles per single fuel tank in the city and 443 miles per fuel tank on the highway. The fuel tank capacity is 24.6 gallons.

The 2018 Land Cruiser will come with many entertainment and safety features, such as 10-way power driver seat, 8-way power passenger seat, bucket front seats, height adjustable driver seat and passenger seat, leather upholstery, multi-level heating driver and passenger seat, ventilated passenger seat, foldable read seats with storage center armrest, rear ventilation ducts with fan control, 4 one-touch power windows, hands-free entry, heated mirrors, adaptive cruise control, front and rear door pockets, front and rear parking sensors, front, side and rear view camera, power steering, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, etc. On the outside, the new 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser looks as good as always. Not much of the design philosophy has changed over the previous model, except some minor details, but it will be just enough.
