According to the latest reports, the Japanese manufacturer doesn’t plan to make changes on the legendary full-size SUV in next few years, so 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will come pretty much the same. This iconic off-roader has been around for a pretty long time.
The current generation is present since 2008, which seems pretty long considering the much younger competition. Still, Land Cruiser is still pretty competitive. Moreover, it is one of the class-leaders in many aspects, including off-road capability, cargo space etc.
The next year model won’t bring bigger novelties. We will see a familiar styling and other design characteristics. The interior design, as well as powertrain, will also remain pretty much unchanged. On the other side, the list of standard equipment could include few novelties, and that would be the biggest change on the 2020 Land Cruiser.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will continue in the same way. This SUV rides on more than decade-old chassis, but still offers amazing off-road performance, as well as great on-road driving dynamics. In terms of styling, this large SUV has been updated for a few times during these 10 years of production. Last time we saw visual changes was two years ago. For that occasion, this SUV has received a completely new front end. We saw a new grille, bumper, front fascia and re-shaped LED headlights. The rear end also came with novelties, like taillights and rear bumper. A new 8-speed automatic transmission was another novelty for this update. Considering these relatively recent changes, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser will probably continue without more important visual novelties. Still, it is possible to see things like new colors, wheels design etc.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Interior and Features
The Interior is another aspect of the car which won’t get any bigger change. We will see a familiar spacious cabin which is characterized by plenty of hi-quality materials and can accommodate 8 passengers. In terms of standard equipment, the great thing about this SUV is that it comes in a single but full-loaded trim level. Some of the notable standard features are things like 18-inch wheels, automatic high beams, LED lights, roof rails, automatic wipers and much more.
On the inside, you can count on things like leather upholstery, four-zone climate control, sunroof, heated and ventilated power adjustable seats, driver memory settings etc. When it comes to tech features, there is a premium 14-speaker audio system, USB port, a 9-inch touchscreen interface, smartphone integration Bluetooth, a navigation system, voice controls and much more.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Safety Features
This SUV also comes well-equipped in terms of safety. Some of the notable systems that are standard features are adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, a surround-view parking camera system and automatic high-beams. Also, you can count on several off-road features like a locking center differential, Toyota’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, Crawl Control, Multi-Terrain Select, hill start assist, skid plates and tow hooks.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine
Under the hood, we will find a familiar 5.7-liter engine. It delivers around 380 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. So, it’s no wonder that this huge SUV needs only 7 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. On the other side, fuel economy is a weak point of this model. It goes around 13 mpg in city and 18 on a highway.
2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Release Date and Price
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser should come in late 2019. We don’t expect bigger changes in price compared to the current model, which goes around 85.000 dollars.
