After another disappointing season without changes for the flagship model, Toyota will have to improve the Land Cruiser if they want to remain competitive in the market. A luxury SUV that is ten years old comes with an aging look. It is time for changes, and 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser will deliver them!
The SUV is still one of the most wanted in the US. Well, the competition in the full-size premium segment is not too big, but it is very tough. Buyers love domestic products, and in this case, these are Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator.
Also, another Japanese carmaker is out with a new product – Infiniti QX80 based on the Monograph concept. Finally, Germans are also waking up. Mercedes GLS and the all-new BMW X7 will make the competition to the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser.
2021 Land Cruiser Interior
The cockpit needs the most changes. The LC had a few updates in the current generation, but none was a complete redesign that will modernize the SUV. Now, it is time for a cockpit to bring a fresh look. On the other hand, the level of accessories and features are on a high level, and these can become only better.
The new 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is unveiled, in some way. We can’t find prototypes and their spy photos, but one Japanese magazine showed the new LC. Well, models are different for Japan, the USA, and Europe, so this might not be precisely the same vehicle as for the other two markets. Still, if one is changing, others will follow this path too.
2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Powertrain Options
According to the website www.caradvice.com.au, we can expect big changes under the hood. There is a big possibility that Toyota will replace the V8 engine with a turbo V6 engine. This also applies to both diesel and petrol V8 engines.
However, the V8 engine can still be in the offer, but for the hybrid powertrain. Toyota has announced a hybrid version for the Land Cruiser. However, we can’t expect LC hybrid before 2025.
Anniversary and the New Land Cruiser
If the Japanese carmaker needs a reason to launch the new generation of its premium SUV, then they must do it in 2021. Land Cruiser is the nameplate that is here since 1951. For its 60th anniversary, the SUV could get a fresh look by its parent company. That is what we all want to see.
