The highly anticipated 2024 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series is set to make its grand entrance into the Australian market in the coming months, bringing with it a host of exciting updates and enhancements. This iconic workhorse has been a staple in Toyota’s lineup for years now, renowned for its rugged reliability and off-road prowess.
Now, with the introduction of the 2024 model, Toyota is taking the LandCruiser 70 Series to brand new heights! In this post, we will explore all the key details about the 2024 70 Series you want to know. From its pricing and specifications to powertrain options and much more!
A Fresh Look and Enhanced Performance
Toyota has given the 2024 LandCruiser 70 Series a fresh and modern look, while still retaining its signature toughness and durability. The front end of the vehicle has been redesigned, featuring softer styling and a return to the iconic round headlights – a nod to its legendary heritage. This updated aesthetic is sure to make heads turn on and off the beaten path!
Inside the cabin, the 2024 LandCruiser 70 Series also recieves a well-deserved makeover. A new instrument cluster and centre console take the stage, providing a more intuitive and user-friendly experience for drivers. The driver’s display now boasts a 4.2-inch multi-information screen, offering vital information at a glance. Additionally, a 6.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system has been integrated, complete with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, ensuring seamless connectivity on every journey.
Powertrain Options to Suit Every Need
One of the most significant updates to the 2024 LandCruiser 70 Series is the introduction of the 1GD 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. This tried-and-tested powerplant, already familiar to owners of the Prado and HiLux, delivers a robust performance with 150kW of power and an impressive 500Nm of torque. The inclusion of this engine marks the first time a four-cylinder option has been available in the LandCruiser 70 Series for over 25 years.
For those who prefer the legendary V8 power, fear not, as Toyota has retained the 1VD 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel engine in the lineup. With 151kW of power and 430Nm of torque, the V8 engine remains a formidable force, offering exceptional towing capabilities and unmatched off-road performance.
Automatic Transmission: A Game-Changer for the 70 Series
One of the most exciting developments for the 2024 LandCruiser 70 Series is the availability of an automatic transmission. For the first time in over two decades, Toyota is offering a factory-fitted automatic gearbox, bringing added convenience and ease of use to this iconic workhorse. The six-speed automatic transmission pairs seamlessly with the 1GD four-cylinder engine, providing smooth and effortless shifts for an enhanced driving experience.
The inclusion of an automatic transmission opens up new possibilities for the LandCruiser 70 Series. Whether you’re towing heavy loads, traversing challenging terrains, or simply navigating city streets, the automatic transmission offers improved control, responsiveness, and efficiency.
Pricing and Range
Toyota has also revealed the pricing details for the 2024 LandCruiser 70 Series, reflecting the added features and enhancements. The range now starts at $75,600 before on-road costs for the LandCruiser 76 Series Wagon WorkMate, equipped with the new 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and automatic transmission. This represents a price increase of $4600 compared to the pre-update range.
As the LandCruiser 70 Series range extends, the prices rise accordingly. The range-topping LandCruiser 79 Series double-cab chassis GXL, powered by the 4.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel engine, is priced at $87,600 before on-road costs. This reflects an increase of $8400 compared to the previous model.
*However, it is also important to know that pricing may be subject to change.
