This new iteration comes with improvements in exterior design, coupled with additions in comfort, convenience, and safety features. Notably, the LandCruiser 70 Series now offers a six-speed automatic transmission, paired with an updated 1GD four-cylinder 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine.
Highlighting the model's long-standing reputation, Toyota Australia Vice President, Sean Hanley, mentioned that the LandCruiser 70 Series has consistently supported Australians in challenging terrains. The introduction of the automatic transmission and four-cylinder powertrain aims to attract a broader spectrum of customers.
The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine has seen mechanical enhancements, including an enlarged cooling fan and isolation crank pulley. Additionally, modifications like a restructured oil pan and an oil level sensor ensure improved oil delivery in uneven terrains.
The six-speed automatic transmission, accompanying the 1GD engine, has also received upgrades, notably a deeper oil pan and an optimized oil strainer intake position. The transmission includes a power/haul mode to fully utilize the 70 Series' 3,500kg towing capacity, and other features enhance its off-road capabilities.
Externally, the LandCruiser 70 Series showcases a revamped front end with heritage-inspired design elements like new circular LED headlamps. The interior welcomes a 6.7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, a 4.2-inch digital instrument display, and redesigned controls.
Toyota has also broadened the LandCruiser 70 Series' Toyota Safety Sense features, adding Downhill Assist Control, Road Sign Assist, and Lane Departure Alert. The new 1GD powertrain is available across all grades, delivering 150kW and 500Nm of torque, while the 1VD 4.5-litre turbodiesel V8 engine will also be available except for the 76 Series WorkMate.
