We now know the dimensions and which transmission will be available.
Another day, another leak for the next-generation Land Cruiser as Toyota struggles to keep details of its new rugged off-roader under wraps. Several leaked photos have already shown the new SUV in all its glory. Just a few weeks ago, a leaked photo revealed the engine options, confirming that the new Land Cruiser will ditch the V8. And now another leaked document taken from a South Africa dealer bulletin posted by an Instagram fan account has confirmed new details about the dimensions, platform, and transmission.
According to the leak, the new Toyota Land Cruiser will be available with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.3-liter turbodiesel V6 rated at 301 hp and 516 lb-ft. Thanks to the leak, we now have confirmation that these powertrains will be mated to a ten-speed automatic gearbox.
The leak also confirms the new Land Cruiser will ride on Toyota's new TNGA-F platform, which also underpins the new 2022 Toyota Tundra. With this new platform, Toyota claims the new Land Cruiser will offer "outstanding on-road performance beyond all expectations for a 4WD with no compromise to off-road performance."
As for the dimensions, the new Land Cruiser GX-R will retain most of its predecessor's dimensions but will be 1.3 inches higher. The Land Cruiser GR Sport will measure 195.4 inches long, 76.5 inches tall, and 78.3 wide, with a 112.2-inch wheelbase. The luxury-focused ZX will be slightly narrower at 78 inches.
Switching to more efficient V6 engines has enabled Toyota to decrease the fuel tank capacity by as much as four gallons. The ground clearance, approach, and departure angles remain the same as the current-generation model. The new Toyota Land Cruiser is expected to debut on May 31, when we'll find out if the rumors that the Land Cruiser is being killed off in America are true.
