Land Cruiser is the longest-serving vehicle in Toyota family. This car will soon enter the 8th decade of production. In 2021 we expect special editions, new generation, and completely new ute. By then, we will definitely have one more model. It will be 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser.
The crossover will suffer a redesign. Nevertheless, we still can’t predict the look of the final product. Toyota is the big company that won’t let the info get so easy out of closed circles of developers. But, some details are easy to guess. Since big stuff is coming in 2021, Land Cruiser is not going to get too many modifications. On the other hand, refresh is certain, and the 2019 year model could be a perfect for testing new features and parts.
First spy shots are already available. However, these are not unveiling details we want to know. It is more tempting than we want to be. Test mules confirm the development, but fans still miss info about the look and interior. But, in near future, we can expect first official specs about the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser.
2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date
First of all, we can speak about the launching date of the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser. The full-size luxury crossover will come out not before next year. With this model, the company will cover seasons 2019 and 2020. After these comes the anniversary. With new 2018 Land Cruiser came out at Frankfurt auto show, we expect the same show to host the debut of the 2019 year model.
2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Changes and Options
The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser will be a part of the generation debuted in 2007. Known also as 200 Series, this model had few facelifts and updates over the period. However, it still shares the platform with Lexus LX570. So, the new 2019 Land Cruiser will share many parts and design solutions with it and its sibling GX 460.
The new crossover will have a single trim level. So, all cards are on it. Premium audio features inside, stylish details outside, and the strong engine under the hood are highlights of the new 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser. Exterior will get few more color schemes. The current vehicle offers 6 paint jobs. Inside, Land Cruiser comes in two leather colors. Buyers will pick brown or black.
A price tag over $80,000 tells a lot about the crossover. It is clear that the SUV comes packed with a lot of features. Buyers will find all they need, many luxurious and hi-tech features, and some equipment they will never use. The only additional package available for the 2018 Land Cruiser was the entertaining package for rear seats. We expect the same on the new vehicle, also priced around $2,000.
2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Specs
The 200 Series of Land Cruiser is using a 5.7-liter V-8 drivetrain. The same unit is coming for 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser. Changes could come with a new generation. This engine can make 380 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. The only available driving mode is an all-wheel drive. Power is distributed through an 8-speed automatic transmission. With some updates, this gearbox will be smoother. The crossover is capable for an off-road drive, as well as for the ride on urban streets.
The new 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser is not going to boost the current fuel consumption. So, combined rate will be around 16 mpg. Owners that pay $80,000 for this SUV don’t have too many problems with that. Probably the more important detail is that the new transmission setup could boost the acceleration. The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser will be able to sprint to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. This is the great achievement for a three-row full-size SUV. Max speed is limited to 130 mph.
2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Worldwide Edition
The crossover will get a worldwide launch soon after it arrives in the US. It is very popular in many countries, and some of them will get special editions. For example, buyers in Australia can choose between few trim levels. A diesel engine is installed in vehicles in the UK. Of course, Toyota is making a unique offer for domestic buyers. As the fastest-growing economy in the world, China is considered as a serious market by many carmakers recently.
