Year after year, Toyota continues to amaze with exceptional upgrades to one of the Middle East’s most popular vehicles; the legendary Land Cruiser - which combines outstanding all-terrain performance, a spacious, high-quality interior and pioneering technologies - to bring both drivers and passengers an elevated experience on every trip.
Here are some of the most noteworthy features and specs of the Toyota Land Cruiser 2022 new model, which was introduced to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the launch of one of the manufacturer’s best family SUV vehicles.
Bold design with a lighter yet stronger structure
The 2022 Land Cruiser is manufactured in accordance with the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) philosophy, which focuses on refined comfort, inspiring driving dynamics and eye-catching design, paired with class-leading safety and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). In this new model, Toyota has merged its years-long technical capabilities with the latest innovations to present a myriad of improvements, such as reducing the vehicle weight by 200 kg while maintaining the body frame rigidity for greater fuel efficiency; lowering the center of gravity; and achieving better weight balance - 53.5% front and 46.5% rear distribution - consequently enhancing both on-road and off-road performance.
The vehicle’s exterior design exudes an authoritative presence and comes fitted with a single-piece aluminum back door used for the first time on a Land Cruiser that enhances cabin rigidity and can easily be opened with the tap of a foot. To better express your personal individuality, the iconic Land Cruiser is available in 10 distinctive exterior colors, including three newly introduced shades; Precious White Pearl, Dark Blue Mica and Avant-Garde Bronze Metallic.
Meanwhile, the all-new interior cocoons passengers in a sophisticated and comfortable space unaffected by the external environment, available in a choice of Neutral Beige, Black or Dark Red. Controls and switches are intuitively grouped and easy to operate, even when driving on challenging roads, while offering a range of advanced features such as wireless charging for smartphones, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and a 4-zone automatic air conditioning system with rear control switches, among other smart operating and entertainment features.
Powerful multi-terrain performance
The 2022 Land Cruiser comes with a choice of two powertrain options for you to choose from; a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 271 hp and up to 385 nm mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, in addition to a V6 twin-turbo 3.5-liter petrol engine that produces 409 hp and up to 650 nm mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Furthermore, the all-new suspension setup of the 2022 Land Cruiser boasts double-wishbone suspension at the front and a 4-link rigid suspension at the rear, delivering a higher level of on-road stability and off-road performance. The vehicle is also equipped with the latest off-road driver assistance features, including a three differential lock system (front, central and rear) that is unique within the segment and provides enhanced off-road capabilities on rough terrain. Additionally, Toyota’s recently developed Electronic-Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS) enables independent front and rear suspension control with two independent loops mounted on a solid frame - a global first that allows drivers and passengers alike to enjoy greater ride comfort and stability on various terrains.
Pioneering safety technologies and features
As with all Toyota vehicles, safety remains a top priority for the 2022 Land Cruiser, which leverages an advanced safety system. This is complemented by Toyota Safety Sense; an innovative safety technology package that encompasses a Pre-Collision System (PCS) that introduces new features, including Emergency Steering Assist (ESA) and Intersection Turn Assistance (ITA) to help prevent collisions with vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. The package also comprises Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) with full-speed range, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Adaptive High Beam System (AHS).
Taking passenger safety up another notch, the all-new Land Cruiser packs Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Brake Assist (BA), Parking Support Brake (PKSB), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM) that includes a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) and so much more.
