Toyota Australia has detailed pricing for its updated LandCruiser 70 Series range ahead of vehicles arriving in showrooms this November.
The range now opens at $75,600 before on-roads for the LandCruiser 76 Series Wagon WorkMate with the new 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel. This is $4600 more than where the pre-update range started.
The LandCruiser 70 Series range now extends all the way to $87,600 before on-roads for the LandCruiser 79 Series double-cab chassis GXL with the 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel. This is $8400 more than the pre-update model.
As part of the update Toyota has introduced the “tried-and-tested” 1GD-FTV 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine which produces 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque. It’s available exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission, which is a first for the iconic model.
The 1VD-FTV 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel is still available in the updated LandCruiser 70 Series. It’s offered on almost every single variant, apart from the entry-level 76 Series Wagon WorkMate, which can only be had with the new 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel.
LandCruiser 70 Series models with the 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine are $4100 cheaper than ones equipped with the 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel engine.
Automatic transmission-equipped models feature a power/haul mode, as well as a second start switch which starts the vehicle in second gear for better traction.
A transmission guard adds extra underbody protection for the oil pan, while the breather hose has been raised to 900mm to assist water crossing performance.
At the front the updated LandCruiser 70 Series has new heritage-inspired circular LED headlights with automatic high-beam.
A black mesh grille with a heritage-inspired bonnet and turn signals, dark grey alloy wheels and overfenders are added on 76 and 79 Series GX and GXL models.
Inside, the updated LandCruiser 70 Series has a new 6.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice recognition and wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
There’s also a 4.2-inch instrument cluster screen, new-look speedometer and tachometer.
GXL grades gain two new USB-C ports in place of the existing 12V, while the 76 Series Wagon gains a reversing camera.
All models get lane departure warning, speed sign recognition and automatic high-beam. This follows the standardisation of autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection across the range for 2023.
