After it has been one of the most popular and best-selling luxurious SUVs in the market for more than a decade, it seems that a brand-new Toyota Land Cruiser is going to hit the roads as a 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 model. We might actually wait until 2022 to see this next-generation off-roader, but it apparently has been on its way to show some serious changes and innovations. The new Land Cruiser belongs to 300 Series that is going to succeed the J200 model.

Pros:

  • a possible new platform
  • a possible new twin-turbocharged engine
  • upgraded technology
  • improved design.

Cons:

  • expensive
  • lots of details still not confirmed.

Exterior

When it comes to exterior of the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300, this model is definitely going to show some serious redesign. The first great change that has been rumored includes its brand-new platform and engine that could possibly be the result of the collaboration with Subaru. However, we are waiting for more official information to be confirmed. The new Land Cruiser 300 will definitely lose its boxy and rugged style and appear rounder and more luxurious. This popular SUV has always been known for its excellent off-road abilities and often compared to its cousin Toyota Sequoia. This trend is going to continue and the Cruiser should also increase its towing capacity to over 8,000 pounds. Some new exterior colors could be expected as well. The base model will probably keep standing on standard 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires. The front fascia will appear more aggressive with its Xenon and LED lighting system, a redesigned chrome grille and lots of other redesigned elements.

Interior

Inside the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300, the fans should hope for an ultimate comfort. This SUV is going to provide three rows of seats and a spacious cargo area. The company will also improve the materials used for the seats and other parts of its luxurious cabin. We should mention that its cabin could be compared to the one found in some Lexus models, which means that you should expect some real luxury and comfort. The new Land Cruiser is also expected to improve its high-tech area and provide some of the latest features such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto. When it comes to safety, it will include the advanced systems such as adaptive cruise control, airbags, parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera and lane-departure warning.

Engine

The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will probably use a powerful V8 engine under its hood, as it has been the case with the full-size Tundra for instance. Its current 5.7-liter that hits 381 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque will probably be kept, but this off-roader might get a brand-new twin-turbocharged engine option. It is also expected to be paired with a new eight-speed automatic. We are waiting for more official numbers and details.
