Toyota initially unveiled the Land Cruiser 300 in 2021 for international markets, and it made its local debut at the Greater Noida 2023 Auto Expo last month. The LC300 is now being delivered all over India and is priced at about Rs. 2.17 crore (ex-showroom). Celebrities have also taken a liking to the Land Cruiser marque, as evidenced by the images below of musician Gurdas Maan receiving his new SUV.
The Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is sold with a choice of two engines in the international markets: a 3.3-liter V6 turbodiesel and a 3.5-liter dual turbo V6 petrol engine.
The sole available powertrain in India is the diesel engine, which produces 309 PS and 700 Nm of torque while the petrol engine can produce a maximum of 415 PS and 650 Nm of peak torque.
It comes with a ten-speed automatic transmission that automatically distributes power to both axles. The exterior colour options for the LC300 built for India include Precious White Pearl, Super White, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Attitude Black, and Dark Blue Mica. Attitude Black has been delivered to Mr. Maan.
The Land Cruiser 300 is supported by the modular TNGA-F platform and is 200 kg lighter than the outgoing generation.
The wheel articulation and handling characteristics have both been increased, and the suspension has been upgraded by the Japanese automaker. The Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System helps the SUV’s off-road performance even further.
The LC300 has a ground clearance of 230 mm and comes with a basic vehicle warranty of three years or one lakh kilometres. The SUV’s design follows an evolutionary path, with a boxy silhouette and an upright front and rear. In comparison to the previous model, the inside is much more modern and has a comprehensive list of features.
A 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, motorised seats, wireless smartphone charging, a 360-degree camera, a HUD, a motorised tailgate, a fingerprint authentication system, and a lot more are some of the important features.
