All-New 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser Will Get V6 Engines And 10-Speed Auto

New 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser will be more powerful, lighter, and get a GR version

  • It will be built on the TNGA-F platform.

  • Its debut is planned for May 31st or June 1st.

  • The new Land Cruiser will share components with the upcoming 2022 Tundra.

Details about the new 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser have leaked on a few occasions recently. The most notable is the fact that the V8 is gone (as expected), replaced by V6 engines, and that a GR iteration will be offered. As well, the new Land Cruiser will be assembled on the same TNGA-F platform as the soon-to-be-revealed 2022 Tundra pickup.

The new TNGA-F body-on-frame platform will ensure that the 2022 Land Cruiser will maintain its robust and creditable off-road abilities. The 2022 model will be 15mm longer than the last 2021 vehicle, about 10mm wider, 35mm taller while the wheelbase will be nearly identical, according to Motor1.

The introduction of turbocharged V6 engines will up output and, in theory, lower fuel consumption. One will be a 3.3-litre diesel V6 while the other will be a turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine. Its output will be 409 horsepower and an impressive 480 lb.-ft. of torque from 2,000 rpm to 3,600 rpm. In contrast, the 5.7-litre V8 produced 381 horsepower and 401 torques. The V6 won’t sound as good as the V8 though… There are rumours concerning a hybrid variant as well.
