Toyota has officially pulled the wraps off the facelifted version of the Land Cruiser.
Following the debut of the 2016 Lexus LX 570 from a few days ago, time has come for Toyota to introduce the facelifted Land Cruiser. The model in question has received a modified front grille, more upscale LED projector style headlights, updated fenders and bumpers, tweaked door handles and side protection moldings, refreshed LED taillights and several other goodies. The cabin of the SUV is now bringing the different shape for the dials and switches, new buttons and knobs which have been reconfigured in order to ease access, better quality materials and so on.
Toyota has also added a new storage area on the center cluster, along with the 4.2-inch TFT multi-information instrument cluster, a 9-inch display for the infotainment system available on higher-end models, replacing the old 8-inch screen, a 12V outlet and a wireless charger. The new pre-collision safety system has been also added to the refreshed Land Cruiser, along with the dynamic radar cruise control, the automatic high-beam, the lane departure alert, the blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, the panoramic multi-terrain monitor, tire pressure monitoring system and others. In Australia, the model is bringing a 4.5 liter twin turbo diesel, along with a 4.6 liter V8 gasoline burner. The diesel is good for 272 HP (200 kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque while the petrol is rated at 308 HP (227 kW) and 439 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is already available for order in Japan and it will be followed by the Australian launch this October.
