The Japanese based automaker Toyota has officially revealed the 2013 model year of the Land Cruiser model.
As you can see from the images posted below, the European version of the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has been restyled, and you actually expect that when you’re paying almost 70.000 USD for it. According to the car manufacturer, the new Toyota Land Cruiser is coming with a revised front grille, new headlamps with HID low beams, LED daytime running lights, redesigned side mirrors, modified tail lamps, chrome side molding and the Pearl White which has been recently added to the model’s color palette.
Moving on to the cabin we find that some of the features which were once available as an option are now coming in standard, like the rain sensing windshield wipers, the DVD entertainment, the center console cooler box, the leather trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, the headlamp cleaners, the multi information display with voice activation, the second row seats, the Bluetooth connectivity and the JBL speaker system.
Last but not least, power to the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser still comes from the “classic” 5.7 liter V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 381 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 401 lb-ft, with 90 percent of it coming in from just 2.200 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode, allowing the driver to change the gears manually, and power is sent to the full-time all-wheel drive with a low-range ratio.
The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has a 40:60 front-to-rear power distribution, directing more power to the wheels with the best grip. The model is now sitting on 18 inch alloy wheels and it’s coming with 10 airbags, stability and traction systems, tire pressure monitor system, sonar parking sensors, Pre-Collision System and a lot of extra safety features, in standard.
